  • 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.

    Well I just had a doozy today. Went down to the basement, notice a lake of beer on the floor.
    Apparently the picnic tap on the keg that held my IPA that I kegged last Saturday was faulty
    resulting in ...

    Well it is a good test of your sanitation practices, lol. If some bug hasn't started fermenting
    it yet, you may be good to go. I would taste it just to be sure. If it doesn't taste like fresh
    wort tha...

    I actually drank the last few drops of starter because it smelled that good.Did you need a
    blow-off tube for your butt hole?

    So where's the 5 gallons come in? Looks like a 1/2 gallon water added to the little bit of
    other stuff?Good question, I assume you make a concentrate then dilute it with 4.5g water? I
    also assume you ...

    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.

  • Posted in thread: Done in 4-7 days on 06-12-2014 at 04:29 PM
    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 ...
