    ABOUT ME

  • Ottawa
  • The Brewing Network
  • I've been brewing for just about 2 years now. Only been all grain brewing since January 2007. That being said, I've only been brewing good beer since January 2007. All the homebrew shops in Ottawa sell stale extract and even worse kits. So I made the switch and haven't looked back since!

    If you can't get munich try to get vienna. They're fairly similar. But don't brew this with 2
    pounds of crystal 60. That's way too much. It will definately not allow the beer to attenuate
    enough. I ca...

    Looks good to me, though I must admit (I'm on a bit of a cascade bender) I'd make 2 1oz
    additions. :)

    Good call bike n brew. For some reason I guess I forgot that the honey was going to dry out the
    beer.

    It's kind of hard to tell you if 3#s of honey is too much without seeing the rest of the
    grainbill. If you think that cal ale yeast is too neutral you might try the dry english yeast
    or maybe even sco...

    People usually recommend wheat to aid in head retention. Whether or not it actually works is a
    whole other matter. Either way it won't hurt. However I would change one thing in your recipe.

    I don't think Todd sells equipment, just ingredients. He does have a bit more in stock than his
    website shows though. Just send him an email and ask him if he has what you need. He's usually
    pretty qu...

    I ordered a tonne of stuff through Todd. He's got a great selection and is really willing to
    order other stuff for you if he doesn't have it on hand. Yes Defalco's is very bad for
    ingredients but they...

    Though this guy isn't in Kingston he's in Ottawa. If you buy in bulk I'm sure you could justify
    the roadtrip (come to Ottawa and see some real hockey! :P) www.skinaneybrewing.com is his
    website. He'll...

    We use cornies at the Real Ale Festival here. If you're pouring fairly quickly, one pint after
    another, just open the pressure release valve. If not, then open it only when you're creating a
    vacuum.On...
