  • Posted in thread: All grain vs extract on 05-18-2016 at 08:50 PM
    A skilled brewer making extract can make a beer that tastes as good as all grain. However, i
    feel all grain gives you more control and generally speaking those that dive into all grain
    usually gain va...

    I think your splitting hairs. If you like the beers, do the trade. A couple of bucks should not

    I can't speak to your actual cause scientifically, but I will reccomend weening yourself off
    the quick carb method. Slow addition of CO2 has improved my beer. If you did have any oxygen,
    you shoved it...

    aggravation in you life. Just move on.

    A big beer refers to the original gravity and overall alcohol content, a stout is not

    I do it all the time with a hop sack and some sterilized fishing line. Works great.

    Craft beer isn't going anywhere. Yes, some of the breweries will close, and growth will slow,
