  • My in-laws gave me my first home brew kit for Christmas 2010. One of the best gifts ever. I upgraded to all-grain in May of 2011 and never looked back. What a great hobby. It combines my love of process, tinkering and, of course, drinking great beer.

    I used 3711 for my saison twice with great results each time. Highly recommend the French

    too warm and...

    You could still boost the alcohol content by boiling some DME in water, chilling, and then
    pitching directly into an active fermentation. Can't say it will do much for the flavor though.

    A 10-gallon all-grain batch of american pale ale that started out palatable and slowly devolved
    into a thin, watery, band-aid, and pepto bismol flavored disaster. Luckily we drank 3 cases
    before it go...

    The recipe refers to total boil time and count down from 60 to 0 minutes with 60 minutes being
    the beginning of the boil and 0 minutes being knock out (as soon as 60 minutes have elapsed and
