  • Been brewing since 2008. I started home brewing due to my love of craft beer. I thought it would be cool to learn about the different ingredients that go into beer to help broaden my palate, as well as having the ability to brew exactly the beer I would like to drink and to experiment and overall just to learn as much about beer as I can.

    When I first started homebrewing I had digestive issues. I didn't get diarrhea (though I
    certainly had "looser" stools), but my stomach would gurgle something fierce throughout the
    day, loud enough th...

    I believe it was Jamil Zaineshef who said a lot of digestive issues with homebrew can be caused
    by unconverted starches in your beer. The yeast can’t metabolize them, but your gut
    bacteria has a...

    Let’s not forget that you also want to prevent temperature swings. I know my basement, at
    least, the temperature will fluctuate a good 5-10 between daytime and nighttime temperatures.

    Sure the beer may be done fermenting in 4 to 7 days, that seems pretty typical even on the
    homebrew level. That doesn’t mean Stone is done conditioning the beer etc. Did they
    specifically state ...

    Totally agree with Spartan NHC is not a good comp for getting feedback. Best place to get
    feedback is from a Homebrew club, or having someone who is a judge it, and give you feedback.
    Just make sure y...

    Alright. Here's my final word on this. Maybe ignorance is bliss in my case. Maybe I've been
    making and drinking flawed beers all this time. I can accept that. I'm certainly not going to
    pay an entranc...

    You can't judge the quality of your beer based on your own opinion? I don't know about you, but
    I don't have the best palate. Whereas most judges are at least partially trained to recognize
    certain fl...

    However, I disagree in some ways too. To say that just because"someone spent year tasting and
    studying beers and they 'thought' my beer was too buttery or phenolic"....... It is not that a
    quality, ex...
