  • I've been at it on and off for about ten years since my wife decided I needed something to do with my time other then get into trouble. rnrnI started with a few easy ones and kept at it. Took a break for a year or two and get back into it. Had a few more successes and then ran into a wall with a few terrible batches.rnrnRather than work through it I packed it up for awhile and am now getting back into it.
  • I'd like to brew something in between an Imperial Stout but with the sharpness and potency of bourbon.

    So, some people lose their keys, wallet, maybe a few bucks at the track. I lose Cider.So, last
    night I came across an overlooked carboy of Cider I did in the Fall of 2012.I got the top off
    of it and t...

    A few years ago I was going to do the whole "CO2 tank outside of the keezer with the
    distributor in the keezer" project.Things changed but I still have the cable.I think keg
    connection charged me clos...

    I have four shanks that were "rescued" from a keezer due to be pitched. Didn't have a proper
    wrench for the job so the collars are a little scratched up. Believe they are Stainless
    Steel.Unsightly? A ...

    It's kind of absurd to make the comparison of processes based on what commercial breweries are
    using Um, not it isn't.If it was then books like "Brew Like A Monk" wouldn't exist and
    certainly wouldn't...

    With BIAB, I don't ever recall having to use rice hulls or attempting to free a stuck mash. If
    fact, the possibility of a stuck mash doesn't exist in my world.We can go back and forth all
    day about wh...

    All grain is all grain.With traditional MLT brewing, you drain the wort from the grain. With
    BIAB, you remove the grains from the wort. Other than that, they are the same process.With AG I
    don't ever ...

    The thing that drove me to brewing AG was, thankfully, BIAB.I just found the process cumbersome
    and mainly just too derivative from BIAB. Why would I want to continue doing something that was
    derived ...

  • Posted in thread: Brewing first all grain, very overwhelmed on 08-27-2014 at 06:14 PM
    Learning the basic mechanics of all grain I've found is easier to teach if you cut out as much
    stuff that's not wholly necessary.With that said, I might suggest just not sparging for the
    first run.Cal...

    I've had Wyeast fully within the date of viability be DOA.It's hard to know with 100% certainty
    what happened prior to me getting them so it's near impossible to say what actually happened.My
    LHBS was...
