    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.

    Apropos of nothing - Rolaids would be an interesting salt addition. They would add calcium (via
    chalk) and magnesium and then soothe your stomach after a pint. Seems like a win-win. N_G

    I always add the prosciutto when it comes out of the oven. I find that cooking it ruins the
    texture.When I've had it in nice restaurants they add it as it comes out of the oven as noted
    by schematix. ...

    Niagara on the US side is, frankly, run down and in need of serious gentrification and
    rehabilitation. Was there last year and oh-boy.... if it wasn't for the falls..... The hotel I
    stayed at the Giac...

    Strip some 16 gauge solid copper wire from some 3-wire in-home wire stuff from home depot or
    lowes and use that. You can buy it by the foot at the home stores. I did that and my immersion
    chiller is s...

    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.
