Posted in thread: Cold-Brewed Coffee - A Reduction? on 08-27-2015 at 02:50 AM
You mean reduce it by boiling for an extended period? Have you tasted boiled coffee?
Posted in thread: Anyone growing Haskap berries (aka honeysuckle)? on 08-22-2015 at 10:09 PM
Does anyone have experience brewing with these? I've been growing a couple bushes of
honeyberry, goumi berry, aronia, seaberry, elderberry, currants, gooseberries, rhubarb,
cornelian cherry, rose hip,...

Sounds like a plan! The bottles were primed already?
Posted in thread: Interesting hop combo or a total mess? on 08-19-2015 at 09:30 PM
I agree with both those points, m00ps, but it sounds like the OP has already brewed this? I

but you ...
Posted in thread: 2015 Hop garden photo thread on 08-14-2015 at 11:09 PM
My hops trellis came crashing down this week! You can see in the first picture that it was kind
of straining the shed where it's attached. I guess the weight became too much and the whole
thing came d...
Posted in thread: Drying out beer to get the ABV up for longer ageing on 08-14-2015 at 07:41 AM
I wouldn't think you'd want an imperial stout to be any lower than 1.011! Even that sounds
quite dry for a big, big beer. I'd call it good and move it to bottles when you're ready. I'm
still opening b...
Posted in thread: Forgot to sanitize my re-hydrated yeast recipient! on 08-14-2015 at 07:37 AM
You have a very good chance that everything will be fine, I'd say. All the sanitation steps we
take are just to improve the odds, but there will always be various microbes hanging out in our

whirlpool addition (between 2 and 4 oz).
