  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 10-24-2015 at 07:41 PM
    Brewing for the first time in nearly a year tomorrow. Making a stout for winter.

  • Posted in thread: What's the worst craft brew (commercial) you've had? on 05-31-2013 at 05:13 AM
    Usually a fan of New Belgium but I can't stand Shift. I dumped 2 of the 4 cans I had. I've
    never brewed a lager but this stuff had a horrible sulfur smell and aftertaste. This time of
    year I drink a l...

    They will mellow out with time. If it's an extract kit, most are made for partial boils. If
    you're doing a full boil you'll get much better hop utilization than planned and it will take
    some time for ...

    With an ale, I wouldn't mess with it too much. Worst case fermentation sticks a little. When
    the temperature rises your yeast will wake back up. I have a lot of trouble with this in the
    winter. My fer...

    I saw a boxer in a couple pics. Great dogs! Good looking build too!

  • Posted in thread: 10 days in the fermenter, no action in the last 5-6 days on 11-27-2012 at 05:38 AM
    I leave my beers untouched in the primary for a minimum of 3 weeks before taking any samples. I
    have hit my numbers without problems. My first couple brews I was transferring to secondary
    after a week...

    Dog treats. My boxer devours them.

  • Posted in thread: Question about dry yeast. on 10-05-2012 at 03:37 AM
    I have pitched US-05 straight in, and I've rehydrated. I prefer to rehydrate. The lag time of
    direct pitch is much higher for me and with my limited time at home I'd rather be around to
    make sure I'm ...

  • Posted in thread: Which motors for a Monster Mill 2-2.0? on 09-04-2012 at 04:04 PM
    Cordless drills aren't a great option for mills. I bet a corded drill from harbor freight would
    do the trick quite cheaply. I have seen a few set up on various mills and they do quite well.
    When/if th...

    "Joy of Homebrewing" by Papazian is a good starter book too. Maybe a little better for a total
    newbie because Palmer gets pretty scientific. Both are great books though and I reference both

Warm beer is infinitely colder than no beer at all.
