  • I stated in 1998 with mead when a good friend of mine showed me how to make it. I then went on to show him how to make it taste good ;) After brewing mead for a couple years I gave beer a shot as American beers sucked after living in Germany for 2 years (USAF).rnrnMy beers were pure extract beers. they were OK but missing something. Next I added steeping grains which added more flavor to the beer but it still wasn't what I was seeking. I had read about All Grain but the lack of money for the extra equipment kept me at extract/steep beers. rnrnThen one day I read about BIAB. Brew In A Bag. It was All grain brewing without the extra cost. I quickly went out and bought some material and handed it to SWMBO. Who looked at me like I had lost my marbles (we all know that happened YEARS ago). Yet since she loves me she measured my 10 gallon kettle and quickly made a bag for me, along with a hop sack. The rest is brewing history!

    of beer that has a 'wet paper' taste to it.Any ideas?wet paper or wet cardboard taste is
    oxidation.

    thanks for the detailed reply. Great info. I have to say, though, I'm a bit bummed about losing
    the red color. I was excited for that. The shop pulled out a book which listed what grains they
    had sub'...

    I would give at least another week for it to clear and for the yeast to clean up. Personally
    for porter's, stout's and Belgian Dark's I allow at least 4 weeks to get consistent taste.I
    prefer to go 4 ...

    Dear diary All my life I have been content to drink one or two Budweiser a day, and never

    social occasion. F...
