  • Brewed with a friend a couple years ago; attempted an American Barleywine. Then my brother-in-law brewed a batch and reminded me how much I liked the idea of brewing. A few months later, a killer deal on craigslist sealed the deal and I was in.

    I've brewed 6 batches, did one partial grain, and then went whole hog into all-grain, starting with a Brew-in-a-Bag, and finally using a cooler setup to do the remaining batches.

    I've currently got a 9 gallon pot, and 3 converted keggles. I mash in a 48Q cooler and use a voile bag as a manifold.

    I've brewed, American Amber, Oaked Porter, American IPA, Old Ale Winter Warmer, Strong English Barleywine, parti-gyled a Pale Ale with it, and most recently a Biere de Garde.

    FWIW the flavor can and likely will change over time. If you like it how it is now then drink
    it ASAP.

    Take a gravity reading. If you're down to 1.004 or 5, that's likely low enough not to worry. If
    you can, use heavier champagne bottles. The Brett will eventually get it down to 1.000 but that
    may take...

    I don't have have a ToP, but I do have a march pump and I have had similar issues where the
    flow has just stopped even though the ports are open. Opening the output on the pump a bit more

    What kind of efficiencies are people getting with ToP? I'm hitting 63-67% average over last 10
    batches. I am getting a channeling problem during sparge, I think. Larger crush and longer mash
    also help...

    For the fruit peel, I've used sweet and bitter orange peel, up to an ounce in the last 5 min of
    the boil. More recently I zested a whole orange and steeped that in the boil for the last five.
    The only...

    Email the brewery, most are happy to share. I've had the beer before and I would suggest
    looking up the cottage house saison recipe, it'll be really close.

    happened that the barrel shipped two hours before the email was read...I've got a UPS
    notification for mine...
