  • I got into home brewing after i tasted my grandpa's home brew. I continually researched the process for about a year prior to brewing my first batch. Man, i wish i would have just started brewing instead of reading. But i must say, all that reading sure paid off. Everyone i have had taste my Porter has said "This tastes just like a commercial beer.". If they only knew that first batch was really just an hour of boiling some pre-hopped malt extract. So Easy!rnrnCurrently, i have three primary's and no secondary. I bottle and keg my brews. E-Bay rocks for the keg set-ups. I got the complete two keg conversion kit with keg and CO2 for $275. I seriously felt like i was ripping the guy off.rnrnI am currently in the process of researching all-grain brewing and equipment. The problem with extract brewing is it is too easy. And, i figure i can't get one of those cool blue ribbons brewing malt extracts.

    A very ambitious plan. Looks like they'll have about 80 beers. I've been going for five years
    and even restricting myself to beers I've never tried is a stretch. Last year, I only sampled
    dark beers t...

    We use a Little Chief electric smoker. For our last batch we cut up a roast into strips and
    used straight Teriyaki sauce as the brine. It sat overnight and we smoked the following day for
    10 hours at ...

    If you think there's a slow leak, I'd turn one of the bottles upside down. If the cap leaks,
    then you should see some liquid the next day.+1 again on rousing the yeast and giving it a
    warmer place to ...

    the bottle. I am not planning on dumping them. However, i am considering carefully transferring
    them to ...

    First thing I'd do is rouse the yeast by turning the bottles over then rolling them in your
    hands. Then move them to a warmer spot somewhere in the 70's, and check back in a couple of
    weeks. My capper...

    Yeah, the bottles are designed to be re-capped (not twist tops). The bottles have been
    carbonating for about 7 weeks now. They have been stored in a dark closet at room temp, approx.
    65 degrees. I am ...
