  • I started brewing in early May, 2011. My brother and I went to our local brew shop and purchased a brew kit with two buckets and all the necessary equipment.

    We've brewed a number of extract and partial mash brews, and are currently assembling the necessary equipment to make the leap into all grain brewing.

    It seems nothing can go right with this brew. was supposed to have an OG of 1.060, but I only
    hot 1.050. I'm not totally sure what the problem was, but I suspect either my thermometer was
    giving me ...

    Wow, sounds great, buddman! Mine is more of an afterthought (definitely not a clone), but I
    hope it comes out tasting at least a little like the innis and gunn. Oh yeah, very expensive!
    Cheers!

    Okay, so rack right onto the rum and oak, then remove the hopsock and continue to age. How do

    Yeah, I may actually go with just cherries, and if not, then definitely cherries and
    blueberries. Thanks for all the tips! :mug:

    Awesome, thanks, all! I'll definitely freeze them, and maybe do a little star san or something
    too? Cherries sound good. Maybe I'll do that instead of the strawberries. Hmmm, I guess maybe I
    should on...

    Hey gang,I recently purchased Northern Brewer's American Wheat AG kit: was thinking about
    racking off two gallons to add fruit to in secondary, but I was worried the higher hop
    character of an Ameri...

    Yeah, I've heard both extremes (very little rum to a lot), but I'm probably going to go on the
    light side. There were a ton of specialty grains in the beer that I do want to come through.On
    the other ...
