  • I was an extract brewer in the late 1990's. Then I had kids... I am now looking to start brewing again with the idea of having an all-homebrew bar in our basement (slated to be finished August/September '09).
    My recent rekindling of intrest in homebrewing has made me think that I need to make the jump to All-Grain brewing, so I'm currently amassing as much info and ideas as I can in preparation for my first All Grain brew.

  • Always wanted to try homebrewing; in 1996 my fiancee got me a homebrewing kit. Between 96 and '01 I made 20 or so batches, some good some bad. Tried meads, enjoyed the fruits of that labor tremendously.
    Currently rediscovering the art, and looking forward to brewing my first AG batch in July.
  • All grain!
    I'd like to do an AG version of an IPA I made to try and replicate my favorite bottled beer in the world, Shipyard Fuggles IPA. My version was good, and I'd like to perfect it. I also love a good stout, I know I'll be brewing lots of those.

    It's been suggested that a cold crash of my AG Pumpkin Ale would be a better way of clarifying
    the brew than racking to a secondary.I've never done a cold crash and actually know very little
    about it....

    This^^^^^.If you have the means to do so, you can clarify the beer nicely (without a secondary)
    by cold crashing it in the primary 5 days at 35-40*F prior to bottling/kegging.Clarity IS what
    I'm hopin...

    What type of beer?I would just leave in primary until you are ready to package. You don't want
    that extra head space in the secondary, even if you use co2 to purge. I wouldn't risk it.
    Unless you plan...

    Hi all,I was going to rack my latest 5 gallon batch of brew into a secondary, but I planned
    poorly: All I have is a 6.5 gallon carboy right now. Would squirting some CO2 into it before
    racking protect...

    So... The fact that it's been swollen for a bit, kept at room temp for a couple days and
    chilled for a couple days won't harm the yeast...?I'll definitely make a starter if the yeast
    is still good!

    Hey all,I was going to brew on Tuesday, so I smacked my WYeast 3056 Monday afternoon.Tuesday
    turned into a no-go. Wednesday got hectic too. Wednesday night, after realizing I wasn't going
    to brew into...
