    I don't think there is anything wrong with your beer at all. The bubbles / tiny white patches
    on top are perfectly normal. Besides, the nice thing about beer is that even if it does get an
    infection, ...

    Alright, well the weird thing is that last week, there was no carbonation in the secondary. I
    drank a pint just to taste it, and it was flat. Now, there is a ****ing head on my beer.
    Something ferment...

    I have brewed 4 beers so far. The first 2 were great. However, for the 3rd and fourth, I let
    them age in secondary for too long.The 3rd was a wheat ale, with low OG and also hopped very
    lightly(1 oz)....

    Listen man - I hear you and I don't mean to come across the way I did. The whole thread started
    up about the legality and spawned off from there, so if you aren't concerned with that than we
    are aguin...

    [QUOTE=Optimus_Pwn;2604814] Do you believe that there is more harm in drinking a shot of
    applejack compared to drinking a glass of apple cider? If the alcohol levels are equivalent,
    the only differenc...

    First and foremost, the question was, is it legal. The real answer was.... no it is not.My only
    other goal in the matter was to make sure people knew there was a risk is freeze distillation,
    which the...

    so I found what I had read from annie proulx book regarding the statutes for federal law and
    freeze distillation. This would of course supercede State law. Again - I concur that the chance
    of Johnny l...

    You do remove the grains before you boil? It's not clear.Oh, I'm sorry. Yes, I remove the
    grains before I boil, or else you get tannins or something. I actually brewed my dry irish
    stout today. I adde...

    Thanks guys. I'm brewing it right now. I just added all the grains together, and I'm glad that
    it'll work out. Anyways, what is the advantage of grain brewing as opposed to extract? Is it
    just a more ...

  • Posted in thread: To Mash or not to Mash, That is the Question on 11-06-2010 at 05:12 PM
    There is mashing and there is steeping. The difference between the two is enzymes. If you
    aren't using a base malt to provide enzymes, then you are steeping. If you have enough base
    malt to convert th...
