    ABOUT ME

  • A regular dude who likes beer and loves the fact that he lives in microbrew heaven.
  • Computers,making beer
  • Taking crap from people I'm smarter than
  • Pretty much anything with heavy guitars and completely inaudible lyrics.
  • American Psycho, The Big Lebowski, Conan the Barbarian, The Patriot, Ratatouille
  • Married With Children, Game of Thrones, Pretty much anything that's NOT Glee
  • The only books I've read in the past 4-5 years have been enormous text books. And those are definitely not my favorite.
  • Wife got me a True Brew kit for Father's Day. 2 years later I decided to use the kit it came with, which was OK. Waited 3 more months then decided it was time to do an AG. Stone Ruination clone. While typing this it is still conditioning but it already tastes so damn good it amazed me that I could create something like that. Addicted immediately.

    Yeah I was checking them periodically like I said. The carbonation felt a little weird but like
    you stated, 3 weeks should have been plenty.One thing to consider though... my pint bottles
    seemed sligh...

    No I definitely used just under 5oz. I did sound uncertain in that post, sorry. I remember
    weighing out to about 4.75oz of dextrose. I fermented for 2 weeks in primary (i don't usually
    use a secondary...

    Well after much deliberation I decided I under-carbed this one pretty good. Couple that with my
    OG of 1.065 and I got a very boozy ale. I really think my perle and London ale yeast
    substitutions have ...

    Well I just finished brewing this recipe this morning. My God the honey aroma was amazing. The
    whole thing smelled just like honey wheat bread. My gravity after cooling the wort was a bit
    high though,...

    How long did you ferment for?Ah. Good question too.

    You know, I forgot to ask... what it's the size of the boil and the sparge?? I'm still pretty
    new at this. I didn't seem to see it in the OP.

    Just bottled this recipe last weekend. Cracked open a bottle today and boy is it delicious. I
    screwed up the hop additions, accidentally adding 2 ounces of centennial at 45 minutes instead
    of 30 and 2...

    Cool. I'll give that a shot. Thanks for the advice. I really dig friendly atmosphere here. One
    more question. I don't have the the capability to ferment at 61. The lowest I can keep it is
    between 64-6...

    New to the forums. I'm going to try your recipe this weekend for my 2nd ever AG brew. However,
    due to availabilty, I will have to substitute Perle for Challenger and WLP013 for the Danstar
    Windsor. Cu...
