  • We're getting the hang of AG, but it still involves a lot of lifting. We need a solution that requires lifting nothing heavier than a pint glass.
  • Two batches of AG pilsner. Gotta love that Saaz...

    I made a batch of graff a couple years ago with some fresh apple cider using 3787 (Westmalle)
    yeast. I put in 1.80 lbs of extra-light DME and steeped 1 lb of crystal 40L and 2 oz of
    Carapils (must hav...

    The gray stuff in the second add is probably hot or cold break. No worries. I would have put it
    in the fridge, but if you sealed it up hot it is *probably* not contaminated with airborne
    critters. 24 ...

    Stainless everywhere - when will the temptation stop? When it hits my porch, hopefully :-)

    I've also ordered from Ritebrew a couple times...I live in De Pere but work in Kaukauna so I
    can't always get to the House of Homebrew before closing time. The pickup at Ritebrew worked
    pretty well, a...

    In Green Bay...picked the Willamette last week (8/20), the Liberty 8/29, and the Cascades 8/30.
    Good amount of yellow in the base of the petals and in the glands. In general I wait until a
    few of the ...

  • Posted in thread: Spike Brewing 12.5gal Conical Fermenter Giveaway! on 09-01-2014 at 03:46 AM
    I was at one of the local breweries this weekend (Badger State, in Green Bay WI) and saw their
    1-bbl conicals. Very sexay, but a little too big for me. 12.5 gal, I could do!

    Looks like I need to check HBT a little more often, or have fewer homebrews before logging in.
    Almost missed out!

  • Posted in thread: 150 quart cooler on 08-02-2014 at 11:22 PM
    150 quarts? Are you fermenting barleywines in a half-barrel? :-)A pound of crushed grain is
    about a quart (give or take), and 2 qts water/lb (at mash out) is about as thin as your mash is
    likely to ge...

    In my experience, Citra is more melony than citrus when used in the boil. I can't speak to when
    you dry hop with it.I made a witbier with fresh lemongrass stalks instead of any citrus peel
    and it came...
