    ABOUT ME

  • The Colony, Texas (DFW area)
  • Brewing,Console Gaming,Music,Guitar,Slow Pitch Softball
  • Murse (Male Nurse)
  • Reno Wilson
  • I like all kinds of music, I shy away from Hip-Hop and Speed Metal, and those guys that dress up in
  • Not enough room. I like movies a LOT.
  • On my DVR:
    Lost
    The Office
    30 Rock
    Good Eats
    Burn Notice
    House
    Family Guy
    The Simpsons
  • Again, not enough room.
  • Inspired by Good Eats, a show on Food Network, my first batch was a New Castle style Brown Ale kit, and I immediately upgraded to a 7 gallon boil pot and added a carboy for secondary fermentation.
    I bottled the second brew about 3 months later, An Irish Red called "Eric the Red" by the magazine I got the recipe from. Had a brain fart moment when I needed to cool the wort down. Since I was doing the full boil I couldn't add ice like I did with the kit, but we got it down with a bathtub full of Ice water and I set up plans for some sort of chiller.

    I decided on a CounterFlow Chiller and built it myself for about 50 bucks, with no soldering. Of course then I had to brew another batch even though I haven't even cracked the first bottle of the Red yet. So I set out to write my own recipe. We'll see how successful it ends up being , for now we'll leave it at this: it's an Rosemary(the herb) IPA that came out a bit too amber in color to be IPA.

    If you really want Honey flavor then pastuerize the honey and add it to a secondary and rack
    the beer on top after your FG is reached.

    If you want a higher alcohol beer, I would suggest you add some vodka or Everclear to the glass

    The only advantage I'm aware of for making a syrup is that you sanitize it and won't get off
    flavours from contamination.I'm pretty sure this is incorrect. Table sugar is Sucrose, a
    disaccharide, whic...

    Quick notes about your honey.1. Use a honey that you like the flavor of.2. Flame out option is
    fine but you will end up with a VERY subtle honey flavor as the CO2 from fermentation will
    "scrub" the fl...

    I have decided that I will give brown sugar a go to so if that helps with the flavour at all,
