  • Was first introduced to homebrewing when I was little and my mother bought my dad a kit for Christmas. We got to help bottle, which was always fun.

    Years later, some of my college friends started brewing, so I got involved, too. Now I'm out of college and working full time, and only brewing every so often. Currently I'm working with a lot of borrowed equipment, though I'm capable of doing a 10-gallon batch using multiple pots if I have to.
  • Belgian Golden Strong, Foreign Extra Stout, several different SMaSH experiments
  • Too much to keep track of.
  • Don't really secondary much anymore, unless I'm racking something over fruit or honey or somesuch. A nice long primary and overpitching makes beer just as good as a secondary.
  • Apfelwein in 750mL champagne bottles.

    Newark here (among the many). Been brewing for the last 6 years or so. Have my own home bar
    down in the basement, completely custom built. :D So glad to see all the DE folks here! (Now if

    Ah, crap! I missed the October meeting! Let me know when and where the November meeting is
    going to be. I'm up in Newark, so getting anywhere in NCC is a breeze! :D

    Yikes, I need to check this thread more often! If you're using whole cloves I'd advise using
    *more*, not less, as your flavor extraction is improved with more surface area. Powdered cloves
    have more s...

    Going to do a batch or two of my Irish stout this weekend. Going to try it two ways, both with
    and without oatmeal. Anyone have any experience with doing a big mash to get two batches worth
    of wort ou...

    Howd it go? Was it ready in 10 days?Yes! It was actually a big hit at the Halloween party! We
    had 20 gallons on tap for something like 150 people over the course of the night (we do

    Well, since it's Halloween time (almost!) I've got another batch of this stuff on the stove
    tonight. It's going to be a bit of a rush job, but I think if I double pitch I should be OK. XD
    We'll soon s...

    So I brewed up a batch of Liquid Stupid this past weekend and was only able to chill it to the
    upper 90's due to warm groundwater. I pitched 2 packets of T-58, said a brief prayer to the
    brewing gods,...

    HDYB is open until 7 on Thursdays. Don't know if that helps any.

    Where in MD are you? There's a LHBS in Newark, DE that you could go to if it's not too far.
    Look up "How Do You Brew."
