    ABOUT ME

  • Hoboken, NJ
  • Drummer. Ice hockey goalie. Brewer (duh). Sometimes cyclist. Married with 1 cat.

    I like beers on the sweet side. The very sweet, malty side. Dessert beers, you might say. Just how my taste buds work. I like syrups and flavorings. Also, lactose.

  • Began brewing 1/26/10, with a maple wee heavy. Brewed a few more times in 2010, with some good success. In 2011, my focus will be 2.5- or 3-gallon batches of all-grain brew, and I hope to brew at least once a month.

    Thanks, guys. The Coopers drops may just be the way to go for me; hadn't considered that. Maybe
    I'll use 1/2 a tablet for each bottle; as it's a heavy Scotch ale, I wouldn't want it
    overcarbed and pri...

    Hi Gang,In March, I brewed up a really big (10%) all-grain Scotch ale and bottled it, after a
    couple months, with maple syrup. I've used maple before and really enjoy what it brings. (FYI:
    I used a gr...

    I'd say you're okay. I didn't move anything around once I'd racked onto the PB mixture, though
    I'd considered it, but mainly 'cause there would surely have been some trub and "bad stuff"
    under there t...

    Congrats, Shaun! Sounds like your brew's a huge hit--even with the 'rents! GOOD going.@Ultima:
    Quite interesting, but it's probably not peanut-butter/chocolatey enough for my tastes. Nothing
    like brew...

    Nice! Beer fest and no food. Brilliant! haha.How're you going to add the cocoa, Skultch? I'd
    suggest boiling it at least briefly with water to somewhat sanitize it, then cooling it (or
    it'll kill the ...

    Shaun, how was it received by your guests (and you)? How 'bout yours, Skultch?Mine was just
    over two weeks in bottles and I had friends over Saturday. While I'd prefer more carbonation at
    this point (...

    Sick stuff, Mischief. Very interesting, though. Crazy to think that something airborne would
    just catch and blow the place to hell. Hmmmm.

    As soon as I'm done aerating (after chilling and then siphoning the wort into the carboy), I
    pitch my yeast and seal it up, all sanitized and whatnot. Guess I'll be safe enough, then.And
    for the recor...

    Ahh, so it has to do with the fermenter. In that case, I'm totally okay.I'd love to have a
    Barley Crusher or a similar mill that fits over a bucket. When I got the Corona (a
    desired/asked-for gift at ...

    Thanks, gents. I do use a Corona mill and catch the grains with a large Tupperware container,
    emptying the crushed grains into a bucket (that I re-cover with a lid placed on top) as the
    container fill...
