  • I first got into home brewing about 3 years ago when a friend got me a home brew starter kit. I've probably made about 20 batches since, and just recently made the switch to all-grain.

    My best batch to date is probably a red wheat (I was shooting for a cross between a Killians' and a Blue Moon). It was a partial grain/partial extract syrup. I want to try to recreate it doing all-grain.

    I'm having family over this weekend, and need to keg two beers I've recently brewed. The first
    is a Blonde I brewed 10 days ago. SG: 1.055. I used WYeast US-05. Fermentation appeared to be
    done in abo...

    I made a framboise for my wife 1-1/2 years ago. Just kegged it yesterday. I like it, but my
    wife isn't sold on it yet (she said it's too sour, and not very sweet). I need to add sugar to
    it, so I pick...

    I've made this a few times. It's my favorite recipe. I like to add a little rye to my recipe,
    but I've also made it without and it turned out well (see my post on page 3 for the recipe I
    used). Amaril...

    I think I may have infected my beer. I dry hopped another batch of my Red Rye IPA about 1-1/2
    weeks ago in the secondary. I only wanted to dry hop for 1 week (3 oz of Amarillo...I didn't
    want to over-...

    Yo par383...did you brew this with Rye. Curious to hear how that turned out as I think it will
    add a really cool complexity. Let me know if and when you have an update. Cheers,NickFinally

    I'm new to lambics...I just brewed a lambic for my wife on Saturday, and at this stage,
    (primary fermenter) it's just any typical beer. I'm using normal yeast. The Lindemanns

    My plans of brewing last month got scrapped, so I haven't made it yet. I'm definitely brewing
    next weekend, though. I'm still going to try adding a little rye. I'll keep you posted.

    I really like this beer (the original). I haven't tried making the clone. I'm thinking of using
    this recipe as a starter tomorrow. But I think I want to add a little rye to the recipe. I want
