Posted in thread: How do I use fresh guava (and a couple other fresh fruits) for brewing? on 10-26-2014 at 08:21 PM
I'd love to know how your results were from using these fruits - especially the guava, as I
have a couple of prolific trees in my yard right now. I'm planning to freeze ~15-20 pounds for
a future sour...
Posted in thread: Summer/Winter Solstice Clone on 05-12-2013 at 08:01 PM
An earlier poster mentioned possibly using WLP029 kolsch yeast, and I'm considering the same
thing. Has anyone tried that with this recipe? I have some extra 029 in the fridge, so I'll
report back if ...
Posted in thread: Anyone brewed with UK Admirals or UK Pilgrim Hops ? on 04-29-2013 at 04:32 PM
My thoughts right now are bitter with Columbus and flavor with Pilgrim, shooting for about a
6-6.5%, 50-60 IBU beer. At one point I was considering dry hopping with something that would
add a touch of...

So kike, did you do this brew? I'm considering using both Pilgrim and Columbus in an IPA and am
curious how yours turned out.

Well, in case anyone drops by and wonders what happened.... I ended up bottling a six-pack
because I want to have something for a homebrew tasting I'm doing with friends in a couple
weeks. The rest is...

Not sure if this is the best forum, but basically I'm curious to get thoughts about a beer I
have in secondary. It's sort of a spiced cherry winter ale, definitely on the darker side. At
the end of th...

Ooh, I like that setup - thanks for the picture. To update the situation, I transferred the
beer 2 weeks after brewing (so 12 days post explosion). Since the SG was 1.030 at the time of
explosion and ...

I hadn't given that a look... I have a similar airlock that's not being used right now, and
yeah, it's a smaller opening than I would've thought. I just never thought it would be possible
for a hole -...
Posted in thread: Need advice after blow-off tube FAIL on 03-04-2012 at 05:15 AM
Yeah, it's one week today, and it's the first time I checked the gravity since the mishap. I
usually don't check within the first 1-2 weeks, so I just don't have a good feel for how
quickly it should ...
Posted in thread: Need advice after blow-off tube FAIL on 03-04-2012 at 05:02 AM
I'm brewing my first high gravity beer (OG=1.080). My friend and I went to get large diameter
tubing at the brew shop, and we were told that a size that would fit onto the top of our
airlock would be ...
