Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 02-12-2014 at 05:16 PM
It's funny when people talk about homebrew like it's a sub-category of a beer style. One day my
boss was talking about a past co-worker, who was a homebrewer, and said "I can't drink
homebrew, that st...
Posted in thread: US-05...what's with this peach flavor?!? on 02-03-2014 at 02:30 PM
Definitely going to give it a try at the upper end of the range. Like I said before, I usually
sprinkle the yeast cold straight from the refridgerator. I'm just wondering, what effect does
this have o...

I may try rehydrating the dry yeast again too. I did it for a beer a while back and I swear
there was a yeast aftertaste even a few weeks in the bottle, so I haven't done it since. I'm
guessing I was ...

I brew three gallon batches. So, as far as pitch rate goes, I sprinkle 1 pack directly to the
carboy...no rehydrating. I figure that's more than enough. I'm not over pitching am I?

I like peaches too...just not in my beer :). Or any fruit for that matter...Fermentis lists 71
degrees as an upper limit for ideal. I guess I'll try up near 70 and see what that gives me. If
I still t...

I guess I've just had it in my head for whatever reason that the lower side of the range is the
way to go for clean ales, and never noticed the peach thru all the hops. Regardless of what

So lately I've hit a slump using US-05 and I'm wondering if anybody could help me out.The last
two blonde ales I brewed had what I would describe as a fruity/peach-ish off flavor. I used

Janet's Brown Ale...The chocolate malt and C-hops are a killer combo. So damn smooth for the
ABV. Only homebrew so far I just can never get sick of.

So...I'm looking to get going on a Christmas ale. I love Bell's Christmas Ale and would really
like to make something similar. I've searched all over the internet and have found nothing.
Anybody know ...
Posted in thread: Ever regretted a "craft" beer purchase? Why? on 09-18-2013 at 02:33 PM
Seems most places around here these days have the mixed six pack...so you've only wasted a
purchase on one beer...not six. This year I dumped two pumpkin beers after 1 sip, but I went in
with the uder...
