    ABOUT ME

  • Current brewing gear is a 10 gallon round cooler/mash tun, 8 gallon kettle, and a propane burner. I did BIAB for a while, and now I've repurposed the bag I used for that as a hop bag. Of course, I frequently forget to use the bag and end up with lots of loose hops in my kettle that also get into the fermenter. Oh well, every once in a while I remember to use it.

    Oh, and I will probably have the last bottle of my huge IIPA from last year's brew day. It took
    a long time to carb up, since it was over 10% ABV. But the 8 ounce dry-hop has held up decently
    over the...

    I'll be there along with another brewer friend. :tank:Is it bad that I'm going to try and copy
    a beer made by a different brewery than the one hosting the event?I had Brewery Vivant's MELA a

    That might be a little too densely planted. I would plant barley at about 100 pounds per acre
    or about 1/4 pound per 100 square feet. Planting that thick will reduce your yield so instead
    of getting a...

    Well, I just planted some seed today. I might have planted it a bit too densely, but it'll be
    fine. The picture below shows a row about 50 ft. long and 2 ft. wide. So, it's about 100 sq.
    ft. and I pla...

    Well, I just got around to using up the last of my vial of Bug County the other day. I had done
    a big split batch a few months ago, but had about 50 mL left that I wanted to use for a 3rd
    batch. And i...

    Just finishing up my spring break (I'm a teacher) and I'm happy to report I got 3 batches
    brewed in the week that I was off. And 2 of those batches are with BRY-97 rehydrated and
    pitched around 60F o...

    Empty carboy? My suggestion is to fill it. And soon.You should brew an amber ale with guajillo
    and ancho peppers. I screwed up the carbonation on a batch that I did, but the flavors are
    awesome. I've ...
