  • For the last year or so my brother in law has been making very simple Cooper's homebrew kits with pretty good success. He doesn't tinker with them just follows the instructions. I just built a bar in the basement and decided to try my hand at it but will be tinkering with the kits to try to produce better brews.

    I've been lucky so far. My 2 best friends ALWAYS bring at least a sixer of some very good micro
    brew when they come visit. They drink what they want from the beer fridge and even hint at what
    they thi...

    A good friend of mine has been drinking "homebrew" as of late and has been telling me how good
    it is. I use homebrew lightly since he actually orders it from a brew your own place and all he
    does is a...

    It seems that anyone who is interested in drinking my beer arrives at my front door complete
    with their own glass and stays until either I throw them out or the beer is gone.

    I am planning on ordering my first rhizomes this year. I have been growing veggies for years
    and with my brewing hobbie I thought it would be an interesting addition to my garden. By-laws

    I wasn't expecting a fully carbed beer after a week but it is usually drinkable and my pipeline
    was low. When I opened it, it was almost flat. I guess this one is just going to take longer.

  • Posted in thread: wheat beer carbing? on 02-10-2010 at 02:12 PM
    I bottled my first wheat beer about a week ago and it seems to be taking a really long time to
    carb up. Does wheat beer usually take longer to carb? I am not worried I am just going to let
    it sit unti...

    I've had some pretty good luck with crashing for 2-3 days at about 2 degrees celcius.

    Now if western Canada could do the same... what gets called cider in BC isn't cider at all,
    usually.If you're talking about that Grower's suger water than yup not even close to cider.

    I love bottling. Yah it takes some time and it can get a little messy at times with all the
    sanitizer and caps and things but I usually try to save the last bottle of a previous batch and
    open the fir...

    I don't see why you couldn't produce either a dark ale or a lager that has a lower OG and still
    tastes great. Almost all of my beers start of below 1045 and no one has ever complained about
    the taste....
