  • Been brewing for about 3 - 4 years, but only intermittently, as it has been difficult to find the time and the cash as a student, so I am still learning things. I don't have the equipment for full mash so I do mostly extract brewing, and partial mash with specialty grains. I could drink nothing but IPAs, but I need to branch out more and am slowly playing with more recipes and styles. My setup is sparse, with some plastic fermenting buckets and a single 5 gallon glass carboy. I have only brewed maybe 15 or so different recipes, but I am trying to get into a more regular habit. I don't have a kegerator or great temperature control where I am currently living, so that restricts the time of year I can brew, but all in good time...

    (the summary of those 5,000 posts, though, is, no, it is fine to sit on a yeast cake for a good
    long while. assuming you're storing it at fermenting temps or lower, before you run the risk of

  • Posted in thread: Found this recipe and had a question please on 01-24-2010 at 06:59 PM
    I am trying to understand this recipe. I read that it boils for 90 minutes...the first hop
    addition is at 60...does this sound right? I have never done a 90 minute boil before so I
    assume it boils for...

  • Posted in thread: Chocolate Stout review from Stout experts please on 01-16-2010 at 03:45 PM
    I think the truth of it is, the burnt flavors of roasted barley can over power any chocolate
    flavor from the baking cocoa (or at least mask it, so they compliment but the chocolate is not

    I second the above, your yeast should be fine. Now that it has gotten started it should take
    care of its own business.When you say you added "semi-sweet chocolate," do you mean like
    chocolate chips, o...

  • Posted in thread: What is your experience with peated malt? on 01-11-2010 at 11:35 PM
    Could you use the peat as a steeping grain?I mean, with so little of it in the grist it is not
    really adding a whole lot of sugars. So why not do some mini batches and steep the peat malt
    instead of m...

    Thanks! I ended up mashing at about 150, or that is what I aimed for.. I think it might have
    been off a bit, maybe closer to 152, but damn close... I forgot that the beaker I usually
    measure my gravit...

  • Posted in thread: IIPA Recipe feedback on 01-11-2010 at 05:13 PM
    Thanks for the input. I had planned on starting the ferment down around 62, and ramping it up
    every few days until it was around 70, and it will probably take a solid two weeks for the
    ferment, if not...

  • Posted in thread: Dry-Hopping: Does it Matter for Bottled Batches? on 06-05-2009 at 12:57 PM
    It just fades... I dont know where it goes, its a beer mystery... The worry of CO2 carrying off
    hop aroma isnt in the bottle conditioning, though, as you're right, it is a closed system. It
    is when yo...

    IC works well for most folk. If you have a decent length of hose hooked up to your IC, get
    yourself a large tub or bin, put it close to your brewpot, put a layer of ice on the bottom,
    coil all of your...
