    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.

    Attached are pics of some shoots from my Vojvodina hops. The bottoms have black areas and the
    tops are turning light lime green and appear stunted. I culled them out and will start with new
    shoots. I ...

    And my Conlon 2-row is sprouting up as well! There are bush beans on the left side of the row
    because the row was a lot wider than I had thought it was when I was making the barley seed
    tape.Oh yeah, ...

    @signpost how do you brew sours? Brew just like normal, then toss in a souring bug like what
    I've probably got in these jars, and let it sit for a couple years?Yeah, that's the main way.
    Just brew up ...

    I love reading about this stuff. I've brewed a good number of sours, but still haven't gotten
    around to trying to wrangle local yeast. Maybe this summer or fall. Every time I think about
    trying it, I ...

    The one I've used most for re-yeasting is T-58, because it is pretty darn cheap. I know it's
    pretty far out of style for a wheat wine, but it really won't add any character when adding
    just a small pi...

    When I've gone without reyeasting a higher gravity beer, I've typically expected to let it sit
    longer anyway. So, I couldn't really tell you how long it took to carb.If you are nervous or in
    a hurry, ...

    I've bottled after more than two months without adding yeast without any problems in the past.
    But adding a little extra wouldn't hurt. Just don't add a while packet or anything.
