    How does it taste? Also, do you use a plastic or glass primary?I had an Irish red get severely
    oxidized after 9 months in a plastic fermenter. It was completely undrinkable. I seem to

    I bought a 6 pack of some aldi beer in a green bottle and the first one was rather sweet. i put
    most in tin foil but this one got mildly skunked but i kind of dig it. before it was skunked it

  • Posted in thread: Is it good to use any household bleach for sanitizing on 10-14-2010 at 06:32 AM
    It's a pretty good cleanser, but lousy as a sanitizer. Don't get me wrong... bleach will kill
    almost anything, especially when acidified, but it has to be rinsed so thoroughly that you will

    All-grain is cheaper in the long-term, but you will have some additional start-up costs and it
    will take more time.

    Hefeweizen is good, and has the virtue of being ready to drink soon. If you don't like the
    phenols and esters of hefeweizens, you can make an American Wheat by using something like S-05
    instead of hef...

    Mashing 10% rye is a mistake that you won't make again.5% is PLENTY.Too much of a pain to
    lauter, or you don't like the taste?

    Wierd. I did the same thing with milk and hibiscus tea, thinking it would taste and look pretty
    cool. It curdled in seconds. I would say that it's the acidity, but when you say mead doesn't
    curdle the...

  • Posted in thread: Random Thoughts: High Gravity Rye Beer on 10-12-2010 at 06:41 AM
    Well... I can't come up with a reason not to brew this beer. I've altered the grain bill a bit
    to increase gravity and lighten the color. I hope to make a roggenbier from later runnings
