  • 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.

    The other day, I wanted to drink a couple sour beers, so made up a yeast starter to save the
    dregs. I'm up to 4 different wild beers represented in that starter, so far.

    Does "standard" cleaning of fermentation vessels (glass or stainless) and "standard"

    1 - a few 3 or 4 years back they got their computers hacked and a large amount of their
    customers credit information was compromised. They didn't inform the public or their customers

    Well, I'm mashed in. This is my first brew day in months. And my last two brew days weren't
    even at home, so I can't remember how long it's been since I brewed on my home turf. I'm
    excited.20 lbs. Pil...

    Just about ready to harvest. It won't be much, since we had such a hot and dry summer. If I
    have a quarter ounce after it's dried, I'll be surprised. I'll probably use it all to dry hop
