Posted in thread: yeast reccomendation on 05-30-2012 at 06:18 PM
Why all the hate on liquid yeast products for hoppy beers? The recipe looks something like it
would turn out an American Brown, or Hopped up English Brown ale. If you want to go for a
cleaner and drie...

You would most likely need to buy new hoses and disconnects to get the kegerator that comes
with the half barrel to dispense beer from a 5 gallon ball or pin lock keg. Hoses and
disconnects are genera...

Force carb some water with a touch of yellow food coloring, bottle, and serve. Then wax poetic
about how it's the best beer you've ever made, and how you can't wait for them to try it and
tell you wha...

First off, I applaud your efforts for jumping into all-grain head first. While a Belgian Tripel
is going to be a difficult beer to pull off even if you have your process down, let me throw
out a few t...

It is possible to over pitch, a topic which has been discussed at length on the forums. In this

off during ...

Posted in thread: Belgium IPA extract recipes on 01-09-2012 at 12:45 PM
I am not sure about converting to extract, but I have a Belgian IPA in bottles right now that
is pretty fantastic. In place of the Pilsner malt you could probably just use Extra Light DME
to get the r...

I am going to second the recommendation for Maryland Homebrew over in Columbia, MD. They have a
huge selection of specialty malts, and sell their hops in vacuum sealed packs. The Flying
Barrel in Fred...
Posted in thread: How do you determine your next brew? on 10-24-2011 at 01:11 PM
I like to pick a yeast and use it in consecutive brews with progressively higher ABV% or IBUs
until the yeast reaches a beer from which there will be no return. For example, WY3787 was
