    ABOUT ME

  • Hey everyone! I'm a fairly new brewer (since winter of 2010) who loves big, esoteric beers. My girlfriend and I run a blog about our local area, called "What's Cooking, Lehigh Valley?" at http://www.whatscookinglehighvalley.com

    We're diehard foodies, and love cooking and creating new recipes. We do our best to translate that over into brewing.

  • Posted in thread: How do you read Lalvin yeast dates? on 09-09-2013 at 02:08 PM
    Hm, I'm trying to find out when it was packaged so I can calculate viability, so "best by"
    doesn't really help :/

  • Posted in thread: Glass carboys, real talk. on 09-08-2013 at 02:05 AM
    I personally like glass. It's what I've found in the area for cheap, and it works just fine.
    Can it have problems? Yup, possibly. But so can a gun. I'm not going to get rid of either of
    them because o...

  • Posted in thread: How do you read Lalvin yeast dates? on 09-08-2013 at 01:54 AM
    Hey everyone! I am trying to calculate the viability of a package of Lalvin 71B yeast, and
    unlike most yeast packages it doesn't seem to have a "packaged on" date, only an expiration
    date.Here's the e...

  • Posted in thread: Does brewtoad make anyone else want to shoot themselves in the face? on 09-05-2013 at 02:40 AM
    I am undecided on brewtoad. I used to exclusively use beer calculus. However on some things I
    simply can't trust brewtoad - for instance, an english barleywine recipe shows as 12.7% ABV in
    beersmith, ...

  • Posted in thread: How well do hops survive shipping? on 09-04-2013 at 02:29 AM
    Just curious about this one. Our local HBS seems to never have certain hops in stock, and a
    recipe I'm working on requires several of them. I was considering ordering them online, but
    I've always been...

    Thanks for the input guys! i'll give it a shot.

    Just make sure it isn't sulfited.

  • Posted in thread: Blending mead and beer for a braggot on 09-01-2013 at 03:58 PM
    Hey everyone. I am working on a recipe now for a pumpkin braggot, and have been reviewing it
    with a couple of BJCP's. A big concern is that the honey is going to get swallowed up nearly
    immediately by...

  • Posted in thread: My Stirplate... Cheap and Easy Build... on 08-30-2013 at 04:19 PM
    Hey everyone! I'm going to be building one of these puppies. But since SWMBO may not be a huge
    fan of me having vials sitting around the kitchen, I'd like to pretty it up a bit. I haven't
    had a chance...

  • Posted in thread: I added heavy cream to my wort! on 08-30-2013 at 01:18 PM
    So ....conflicted. I love bananas...I love beer...Do I want whole bananas in my beer? I love
    banana milkshakes, maybe it will be similar? Add some cocoa and I may offer to drive from CHI
    to VA to try ...
