    ABOUT ME

  • Tucson, AZ
  • Just your run of the muck low budget home brewer.
  • Cars,Brewing,Reading,Photography
  • Systems Engineer
  • Got into home brewing just by chance "because it seemed fun". Has been a blast so far, we have a simple kit comprising of a SS brew pot, a plastic 6.5 gallon primary, 6.5 glass carboy secondary and a 6.5 gallon spigot bottling bucket. The only upgrades from the kit we have made was an auto-siphon (man that made it better). All brews we have made, and plan to make for a while are kit beers. Currently considering getting into kegging and building a keezer.

    All good advice above. Just be prepared to be disappointed in your scores (I know I was the
    first couple of comps that I entered). You could very well end up scoring off the charts, who
    knows. But if ...

    Good notes, thanks! To be honest, I just thought it would be neat to try and enter a contest
    and get unbiased feedback. In the end, my friends love our beer and I love our beer.. mission
    accomplished....

    I am interested in entering some beers in home brew contests that provide feedback and the
    like. I am fine with mailing the beers in, driving within a few hours of Tucson AZ or anything
    like that. Any...

    What's done is done...no worries about the AA. I believe gelatin will work best when the beer
    is chilled. Finish fermentation, chill and then add gelatin.Why are you trying to clear the
    Watermelon whe...

    That is exactly what I thought I should have done. I will do this with my watermelon wheat and
    Irish Red, the question is... what to do with my Alaskan Amber that I added the gelatin to
    yesterday (aft...

    I know.. yet another gelatin thread. So here is my case (I did search btw) brewed up an Alaskan
    Amber Clone extract brew. No Irish Mos or anything like that during boil. Fermented for 7 days

    If it were me, I'd likely buy the parts seperate and just build it like I wanted for not that
    much more the first time. That being said, with what it sounds like you are planning to do,
    replace both t...

    I know my tastebuds have evolved quite a bit over time. I used to love everything sam adams put
    out (minus the cherry wheat yuck!!) but now I can't remember the last time I bought any. My
    wife support...

    Fact: Samual Smith Oatmeal Stout is a seriously badass beer.Yessir... wouldn't change a thing
    about it. :mug:

    The wife and I brew together. She takes an interest in just about any hobby or activity that I
    pick up. When we brew, I do most of the work and she makes sure I don't forget anything. When
    we bottle, ...
