Posted in thread: Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale on 09-28-2013 at 04:56 PM
Ed: I brewed a citrusy IPA recipe of yours and a Pale ale previously. Both were great! I like
your beers better than any of the brew pubs. I love your work! I've been brewing all-grain in
keggles for ...
Posted in thread: Real problem, can't find a beer my wife doesn't like! on 09-28-2013 at 04:47 PM
If your wife likes your beer, consider yourself lucky. She will be supportive of the
hobby/obsession. If she didn't, resentments may smolder. I am brewing at least 11-12 gallons at
a time now in keggl...
Posted in thread: ( advice ) wife doesn't like me home brewing on 09-28-2013 at 04:42 PM
I've got it so that my costs (not including my labor; it is a hobby) are about 1/3 of what it
would cost to buy craft beer. I buy my 2 row malt from a brewer in 50 pound sacks. Otherwise
buy in bulk o...

As others have said, be careful with your sanitizing, including your hands. I put my carboys on
a table in the cold garage overnight (cold crash) before racking. All the yeast settles out.
Then put yo...

I sure wouldn't just take a wild yeast and put it into a batch. A small experimental batch
might be in order, using your "wild thing" to make a starter. You might well have other things

Anything with 50-60,000 BTU works fine. If you are using keggles for pots make sure that it
sits on the cooker completely and is nice and stable. Some don't and 15 gal of boiling hot wort
spilled can ...
Posted in thread: Keg for fermenter? on 08-14-2013 at 12:00 AM
I am fermenting 12.5 gallons in a Sanke keg with a blowoff tube for the first time. The beer is
a hopped rye- O.G. 1060. I used two pkgs. of Safale 05, which I've used a few times before with
Posted in thread: US-05 (dry) vs WY1056 (liquid) - My tests/results on 08-13-2013 at 11:38 PM
I was using Wyeast smack packs for ales, rye, and IPA. The smack packs were fine but expensive
and I had a smack pack blow up when I smacked it and had to use what was left because of the

We have a profusion of wild hops growing in the mountains where I live. I thought that you
couldn't use hop cones that have been pollinated. A brewmaster at a major regional brewery said
that you coul...
Posted in thread: All Grain Keggle Set Up or Blichmann? on 07-30-2013 at 08:03 PM
I made my own 3 keg setup for a ridiculously small amount of money and it functions great. For
the mashtun, cut the top of the keg (about a 10" circle) and use the cut-out piece for your
