  • Posted in thread: Partial Mash Amarillo faux SMaSH on 04-10-2014 at 09:14 PM
    Another resurrection of this old thread, but I brewed this up per instructions about 3 weeks
    ago and just tapped the keg. Delicious! Excellent flavor and a good showcase for the single
    hop. Mine has a...

    I have a one-gallon batch of a simple Mead which I started in October and have racked once so
    far. It has been perfectly clear for about 2 months with very little sediment at the bottom of
    the glass j...

    NB is my local shop, and they do 5# exchanges for $15. I think they just get them from a local
    welding supply. It works out well to have a one-stop shop for everything, but the downside with
    the excha...

    A bit of caution: be very careful not to let any of the undiluted liquid come in contact with
    surfaces such as countertops and floors as it will eat through and leave irreparable damage. I

    Your recipe is very similar to one I just kegged, which turned out absolutely awesome. I used
    farmhouse's Exp 5236 hops which I understand are similar to Simcoe. I did a partial mash with a
    grain bill...

  • Posted in thread: Dad to be=brewing lots of beer now on 09-25-2013 at 09:55 PM
    I have a two-month old son, and found that partial mashes are a good compromise. I can do up to
    about 5# of grains on the stove top, and use my oven on low setting for the mash. This at least
    allows t...

  • Posted in thread: Most annoying response when you tell someone you're a homebrewer? on 05-29-2013 at 04:48 PM
    I think many people have the idea that home brewed beer will be like other things people make
    homemade that just don't turn out that good or have a hippy funk (think homemade ketchup). This
    usually le...

  • Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 05-01-2013 at 05:01 PM
    Saw this highlife bottle in a porta-potty at a baseball game. Couldn't tell if it was beer or
    pee. Does it matter? 119201

  • Posted in thread: NB box as 12-pack flat on 04-17-2013 at 01:46 PM
    I realize this may take the prize as the lamest DIY project on HBT, but I thought it was worth
    sharing anyways. You can easily convert a Northern Brewer box (like the ones extract kits come
    in) into a...

  • Posted in thread: Do you Stir in your Priming Sugar? on 04-05-2013 at 01:31 PM
    I'm always a bit hesitant to start siphoning beer into the steaming hot priming mixture. Should
    I be cooling the priming mixture first?
