    ABOUT ME

  • Brewing since 2010!
  • I am recently retired and I was bored stiff. My son and I have been enjoying a few craft beers and he suggested that maybe I start brewing my own. I did a little research into it and soon found myself at my LHBS. I bought a starter kit and an extract with grains kit and made my first batch. It was a Midwest Supply kit called Octane IPA. When I transfered it to secondary I thought maybe I would get another kit and bought another extract with grains kit from Midwest. This one was their Noble Trappist Ale. Brewed it up, got it in primary. Turns out I did not get a good boil on the Octane IPA and it tasted like dirty socks but thank goodness the Trappist Ale can out unbelievable and I was hooked. In the year since I started brewing I have brewed 55 gallons.
    1. Octane IPA kit from Midwest. Horrible. My fault though. I did not get a roiling boil on my electric stove and it just was terrible.
    2. Noble Trappist Ale from Midwest. Fantastic. Saved a 6 pack and let it age for 7 months and it

    So if I make the assumption that phenols were caused by to high of fermentation temperatures
    for that yeast..will these dissipate with age in the bottle? I wish I could find out the yeast
    so I could s...

    You don't mention how young the beer is, but it obviously does not taste good. This is fairly
    common with young beers and especially common with new brewers. The first thing that jumps out
    at me is yo...

    The color of the beer being darker is pretty normal for an extract beer. Most extract brews are
    darker because of the amount of kettle carmelization that happens. As for your band aid flavor.

    Maybe you had to much volume. Maybe you didn't boil off enough wort. Sent from my SCH-I545

    simple and I u...

    Pitch 3711. It is a beast and will finish your fermentation. Anything temp from the 60's to the
    80's will work. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Home Brew mobile app

    Don't be cheap. Buy Beersmith for your home computer and for your mobile. It will be the bestv
    $33 you will spend. There is a reason beersmith costs money. It is vastly superior to all the
    free crap o...

    I had the same problem with my fridge but magically when it warmed up the freezer started
