    and STILL, my bo...

    Something you might want to consider is when you move to lager, you lager in a keg with an

    When I do a 90 minute boil I skim, since I've got 30 minutes until my first hop addition. After

    tubing on my f...

    Well, at least you still got to take the youngest to be with the family AND got to get your
    beer brewed. Maybe not the most relaxing/enjoyable way to do it, but if your two kids are

    Thanks Raceskier, that recipe looks promising. The lager yeast is key. You might be right on

    We just pitched a Columbia IPA with a pint of yeast slurry from a previous IPA. I basically
