  • Started recently a few months ago with an extract kit from the LHBS. I have always wanted to homebrew just never had the money or dedication like I do now. Am currently upgrading to do AG which is where I think I should have started in the first place. Next recipe is one I formulated...a IIPA with almost 20 lbs of grains and 6 oz of hops!!

    If you are connecting flexible tubing to the top of the bent cane that comes out of the
    autosiphon, you'll need to add a hose clamp there. The flow of beer past that junction will
    entrain air and caus...

    I would have left him, pitched and used this as an opportunity to name your beer...Dead "fly"

    sounds like activ...

    Having drank this many times now, I just can't see how the IBU's in this beer are any less than

    I was going to do just that! I was also going to add a Jamil's Brews section with all of his
