  • All of a sudden I was meeting home brewers left and right. I got interested and was talking about doing it all last year, so finally my wife bought me a true brew gold kit with a nut brown ale extract kit. Three weeks later I was bottling and brewing my next kit: Oaked Imperial Stout. I've been doing all grain for the past year now and have become the home brewing manager for my lhbs, Mr. Suds Party Store! I look forward to many years of enjoying both the process and techniques, and of course the end result: A nice tall glass of beer!

  • Posted in thread: is another reason wort chillers work because they keep the lid off on 04-17-2012 at 06:55 PM
    I've found the best method is just to pick up the wort chiller itself and use that to stir
    with. You can feel the return side instantly get hotter when you do this and I get down to
    pitching temps wit...

    Yeah, sure why not? Cucumber is a light flavor though, so you might consider juicing some of
    them to make up a portion of your water. Let us know how it turns out! :mug:

    Well you could always do a decoction mash with the MO. That would bring more of those
    melanoidins back in.

    So much light on that beer! :(

  • Posted in thread: First AG batch recipe question on 03-06-2011 at 05:12 PM
    Look up SMaSH recipes - Single Malt and Single Hop. Lots of people do this and make great
    beers.

    Not really. My first AG took that long and was full of similar complications. It's just about
    getting the new process down. Even now it takes me 6 hours because I take my time and enjoy the
    process. H...

  • Posted in thread: What exactly makes banana flavors? on 02-14-2011 at 03:18 AM
    Yeast produce different esters at certain fermentation temps. These esters usually have a
    fruity characteristic. Hefeweizen yeast often produce esters of banana and clove. You were most
    likely drinkin...

  • Posted in thread: Still stuck after re-pitch on 02-09-2011 at 05:04 AM
    I had luck with a stucky after transfering to secondary. Probably because it roused the yeast.
    Try that if nothing else, but don't drain it. Bottle it up after the appropriate time, drink
    that shiz an...

    You could definitely take DannPM's suggestion! But you'd also be less 2 liters of good beer
    later. Did you ferment in a bucket? Sometimes the seals are crap, so please remember, airlock
    activity is NO...
