  • I got into home brewing in 2005 or early 2006, I bought some equipment while I was a junior at The Ohio State University.

    My first brew was Russian Imperial Stout, from a kit. It came out way too over carbonated, had off flavors, low alcohol.

    Second was a brown ale malt extract. It came out at least drinkable, hard slight off flavors probably from complications while dry hopping pellets in a glass secondary.

    third was A Bell's Oberon Clone. My technique was as good is it gets extract brewing wise, I had done all 3 brews almost back to back and this was going well, good starter, good pitch and initial ferment, everything. Only problem was, this recipe had only 3-5? oz of saaz hops for 5 gallon boil. And, For some reason I either cut the priming liquid volume down or cut the whole recipe down an it ended up under carbonated. It got better as it sat, but it took a while.

    I thought I ruined a nice batch of cascade pale ale with my auto siphon. I never strained the
    hops out of my wort and after sitting 3 weeks in the primary, I had a hell of a time racking to
    a bottling...
