  • I started making my own beer about two (2) years ago. Wall Street hit us hard, and I wanna keep on drinking beer. With the knowledge of my girlfriend, I started making my own. I really regret that all this time I have been drinking mass-produced beer. Better late than never. I have a strong scientific background, I am applying rocket science to beer making. I believe that there is a lot of room for optimizing the process.
  • My plan is to keep on gathering data and optimized my home brewing. I will make my own recipes and maybe set up my own mini-brewery with some PLC and automatic controls. Then I may move further, but right now I want to concentrate on knowing all aspects of beer making.

    You answer my questions. Thanks, Nil :tank:

    Hi guys, where should I add salts? Mash tun, water, boil or any combination? I guess that if my
    objective is to provide a kick on hop bitterness, I should add calcium sulfate to the
    boil.Thanks, Nil :...

    I plan to use 3.5 gallons of water and 50' of copper coil for wort heat exchange.

    Hey all, I need advice about an induction burner: what is the power that you would recommend?
    There out there a 1300, 1500 and 1800 watts.I wanna use it to control the mash temperature via
    a recircula...

    How long should I lager the beer? Some folk told me 3 months yet I think this is a long time.

    Just some thoughts (this is my first lager in 5 years as a Homebrewer):I tested the FG gravity
    with a hydrometer (needed a lot of volume). As I said, the FG gravity was 1.02. Cool...I tasted
    the beer ...

    I measured the FG yesterday ang it was 1.02. I'll start the DR today. Thank! NIl :mug:

    When shoulda I do the diacetyl rest, before or after lagering? I was thinking of a diacetyl
    rest for a week to allow the temperature to stabilize all across the glass carboy. Thanks, Nil

    Any hints on how it may taste? Still bubbling (15 APR 14) and going. BTW, I have been not quite
    lucky with CO2 forced carbonation. I plan to do natural carbonation (glucose) til I master the
    alternati...

    Update 14 APR 14: Wort started bubbling like hell in 12 APR 14 evening after re-pitching with
    the starter on 12 APR 14 morning. The normal bubbler was not enought and I have to replace it
    with a long ...
