    ABOUT ME

  • Central Oregon
  • I live in Central Oregon and have been brewing about 4 years with a friend of mine who has been doing it about twice that long. I am recently venturing onto my own after not having "when-ever I want it" access to the brews. I want to specialize in Ciders as not many people in my area make them.
  • Traveling by any means,People watching,brewing.
  • Depends on the day of the week and who called me.
  • A buddy of mine got me started when I turned 21 and have been brewing for four years now. I have been just helping him brew and slowly learning over the years and am starting to make ciders as that is something he has never started doing.

    We have a list of every beer style possible and trying to brew them all.
  • Lots of cider. Any flavor you could imagine.
  • Strawberry Kiwi Apple Cider
    Apple Graff
  • Open Carboys
  • Sparkling Apple Cider
  • No keg set up yet...
  • Male
  • Single

    Realistically if you want your flavor to be noticeable for the pumpkin you'll probably have to
    put more into the secondary. I am not sure how much of it will be stripped during primary
    fermentation. I...

  • Posted in thread: Math genius for acid calculation? on 10-23-2012 at 04:38 AM
    I get roughly .458% acidity with my calculations. Not sure if they are right though. Here is
    what I did:First I found the concentration of each liquid (84% to 16%) then I multiplied 1.3 by
    .16 = .208 ...

    Welcome to the addiction!1. Sounds excellent!2. You really don't need a full packet of yeast,
    but over pitching isn't a bad thing... Sometimes I wish I had more. Also while at the brew shop
    I'd pick u...

  • Posted in thread: N00b cider secondary fermentation question on 10-14-2012 at 11:44 PM
    The only place you should be pouring it is down your throat. Or mine. :-) It's probably also
    some yeast activity that is producing more lees. If you bottle carbonate you'll always have
    some of that. I...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle cider in 2-liters? on 10-14-2012 at 11:38 PM
    The reason it goes skunky is mainly from the hop oils being messed with by the sunlight. I have
    heard it said (never tried myself as I have lots of brown bottles) that unless you hop your
    cider they s...

    Expect things to not go as planned and still turn out fine.

  • Posted in thread: First time Cider Experiment on 10-09-2012 at 06:16 PM
    The only problem I for see you having is you only made a half gallon. I'd let this one do it's
    thing so you have a good base for what it should be normally and then play with it from there.
    I hardly e...

    Cider is 100% fermentable. It will reach .995 if given the chance and if the yeast can handle
    the alcohol content. Read up on back sweetening if you feel it needs to have sweetness to it. I
    personally...

  • Posted in thread: Quick question: is this normal??? on 09-28-2012 at 12:39 AM
    I don't know that you can really define normal in brewing. Things happen the way nature intends
    and it doesn't always look the same. May have simular characteristics and seem the same but
    nevertheless...

  • Posted in thread: First failure ... on 09-09-2012 at 05:27 AM
    Yeah Sulphur is completely normal. It means your yeast are pissed off. Either from being to hot
    or not enough nutrients. Add a 1/2 tbsp of nutrient at the start and keep the temp lower.
