    So I filled a sanke keg with a delicious english mild a few weeks ago with some priming sugar
    to get it carbed up to about 2 volumes. Now I went to put the coupler on and I asked my dad who
    has dealt ...

    when you and your wife are planning the house you want to someday build "She" suggests a 2000
    sq ft cellar with several walk-in coolers and plenty of room to store "all your crap". even
    though she bou...

    see that's why I want to get 3 more Sanke kegs, fill em up, keep em cold and it should last me

    Try some gelatin finings, and after a few days keg it or bottle it.Just make sure you let the
    gelatin bloom in cool water before heating it up to make it clear. (Don't boil the gelatin)I
    sometimes use...

  • Posted in thread: What is causing the "Tart" flavor in my beer? on 02-03-2011 at 12:22 AM
    I normally get much higher extraction and efficiency than I should, but I just got a
    Barleycrusher malt mill so that should be slowly getting dialed back to a lower number as I
    figure out the right sp...

    I've shared one of my english milds with some guys at one of my club's meetings and they tasted
    it as well. All of the last three brews I did have that same tart character. The english mild
    and northe...

    I've brewed Hefe, Wit, English Mild, Northern Brown, Cream Ale, American Brown, etc. I've used
    Continental Pils, Maris otter, and extract kits. Some of the guys in my club say Maris Otter
    and wheat ma...

  • Posted in thread: How do craft/commercial brewers get their beers in stores so fast. on 01-14-2011 at 11:19 PM
    Almost nothing at the commercial level happens faster than it would happen at the home level
    with modest equipment expenditures. Home brewers have the obvious and huge advantage that their
    tanks will ...

  • Posted in thread: experimental english brown recipe.. what do ya think? on 01-02-2011 at 08:59 PM
    I like most of your recipes, especially the ones with Special B. To really get some plum
    flavors you might want to stick some caramunich in there. Some lighter colored crystal malts
    will add a little ...
