    ABOUT ME

  • A second foray into the brewing scene. Loving it all so far. rnrnI picked up the hobby again in 2008. I've tried it all - Mash in an igloo cooler, gravity and pumped, fly-sparge, batch sparge, and BIAB. Currently doing recirculating BIAB on an hybrid propane/electric system with temp control. Been turning out amazing low and mid-strenght beers and plan to continue doing so. I am focusing down on the British Bitter and Mild styles of beer after finding ECY18 - the East Coast Yeast British Mild strain. Love it! 5 gallon batches and kegging everything!rnrnI'm up to over 80 5-gallon brew-days now. rnrnNext steps forward include:moving from wood to metal for my BIAB stand, adding an integrated bag-hanger, and running my kegorator lines up to the kitchen for easier access.

    Finally had a chance to tap this keg. Very good dry hopped amber ale. The large amount of
    crystal malt wasn't an issue with my pitch of 1968. I very much like, very much going to get
    hammered on this ...

    I like the extra effort shown on the extract recipes. Good luck to Coldbreak and to me!

  • Posted in thread: What is your Favorite IPA recipe? on 06-22-2015 at 01:10 AM
    Maybe not a super traditional IPA... but you can't go wrong with an Arrogant Bastard clone from
    the CYBI threads. It won't break the bank on hop costs and it is darn tasty.

    I dunno about your recipe, but If you google Tasty's session Janet's brown ale you'll find a
    really nice citrusy American ale at that gravity that you will really enjoy. Take a look at it
    for inspirat...

    Pivo Pills, any version of the Dale's ale from Oskar Blues - Our local Carton Brewing's 077XX
    DIPA is amazing. Six Point's Resin will roto-till your taste buds off with hoppiness if that is

  • Posted in thread: Why did VV/Brew Cube fermenters fall out of favor? on 06-04-2015 at 09:02 PM
    Some people are put off by the inaccessible hollow with-in the neck below the screw-top section
    of the gamma lid opening. People are concerned about thoroughly cleaning those areas. I agree
    that the w...

    How did you achieve this goal? "Heater must be disabled if pump is not on". Seems like you'd
    need another SSR in there somewhere, or did I miss something clever?
