    Selling my 5 keg system that has everything needed to get kegging right away. Here's a list of
    the items included:Chest Freezer: Large enough to fit 5 kegs and the CO2 bottle. Freezer is
    used, but run...

    Wow.. I cannot believe that noone has mentioned Yuengling yet. If you're going through PA,
    definitely pick some up. It's America's oldest brewery! I can't really say that it's my
    FAVORITE beer, but I ...

    The big thing to remember when working with yeast is that you want the most STERILE environment
    possible. Although StarSan works great as a sanitizer, you won't get the best results by simply
    using St...

  • Posted in thread: How to make a Saison red? on 05-21-2010 at 11:03 AM
    It's really hard to get a true red color in your beer. The beet juice is a very interesting
    idea. Not sure what it tastes like, but it would probably do the trick in making your beer red.
    I have also ...

    Check the batch's gravity for the next 2-3 days. As long as your beer's gravity is stable,
    you're safe to bottle. Just make sure that it is not still fermenting as you'll be looking at
    creating bottle...

    I used to go out in to my garden at night with a headlamp, chopsticks, and a glass of cheap
    beer. Any of those little bastards near my veggies, well, you get the picture.Do you like
    sushi? Drinking ch...

  • Posted in thread: I've Got Hops Already on 05-21-2010 at 10:46 AM
    Definitely weird. Then again, I'm in Cleveland where we get frosts through June 1st. I suspect
    that the worm castings and compost tea have something to do with this. Those are both nature's
    ultimate f...

  • Posted in thread: Hop Shoots... on 05-21-2010 at 10:43 AM
    No need to worry at all about only 1-2 bines coming out so far. If this is your first year with
    the hops, you may only get a few actually coming out of the ground. They will not branch off of
    each oth...

  • Posted in thread: conditioning on 05-20-2010 at 07:32 PM
    As long as the hydro readings aren't moving and the beer has reached the target FG, you're good
    to go. You can bottle at anytime as long as you know for sure that the beer is finished
    fermenting. You ...

  • Posted in thread: New Brewer on 05-20-2010 at 07:29 PM
    There's absolutely no reason to wait. You'll have much more control over the finished product
    by moving into all grain brewing. The only thing you would need besides what you currently have
    is a mash ...
