  • My dad used to homebrew while I was growing up so I guess I was always fascinated by the art.

    I'm a beer lover and living oveaseas, it is difficult to get good beer so I decided to make my own!

  • Posted in thread: Wort Temp vs. Fermentaiton Chamber Temp on 10-01-2012 at 07:52 AM
    Funnily enough, I was thinking of the exact same thing this morning. I did a brew last night
    and because I live in the tropics where the ambient temperature if always over 30 degrees, we
    are constantl...

    Thanks...good points.

  • Posted in thread: Can I recarbonate beer? on 09-29-2011 at 08:16 AM
    Kind of a dumb question but here is my reason why. I recently brewed a batch of brown ale. It's
    good but not much head and missing something. So I added a spoonful of maltodextrin and after

    Gelatin. You can skip the whirfloc and everything else. 3-5 days of cold temperatures with
    gelatin and your beer is like glass.How does gelatin work? I've never heard of this

    I am using PET bottles for my bottling and already after 1 day in the bottles, you can feel
    that they are quite pressurized. Just wondering what the rate of carbonation is over a week? I
    added 3/4 cup...

  • Posted in thread: Hot alcohol taste!?? on 09-18-2011 at 07:35 AM
    I've had the same problem with mine. Fermenting in hot tropical countries is a problem and
    trying to keep it below 25 degrees is difficult (77 F). Mine has a hot alcohol taste as well.
    OG was 1.072 an...

    Because many of the people here are brewing All Grain or are doing full wort extract boils,
    neither of which allow for adding water (or ice) post boil.Thanks. I realized this after
    talking with my fri...

  • Posted in thread: Ice to chill wort? on 09-10-2011 at 04:26 AM
    I buy bottled water for all my brews in the 1.5L bottles. I freeze 4.5L of them, add them to
    the wort (have to cut the plastic) and it brings temp down to the perfect temp to pitch. Not
    sure why more ...

  • Posted in thread: what is the most "water conserving" method of cooling wort quickly? on 09-10-2011 at 04:17 AM
    I don't understand why people don't just freeze a 4L of filtered water like I do and add it to
    the wort instead of spending gobs of money on wort chillers that also waste so much water. It
    brings the ...

  • Posted in thread: Should I add maltodextrin to an IPA? on 08-14-2011 at 02:05 AM
    I did some searching but couldn't find a thread for this topic. I recently made a brupack IPA
    but added 22L instead of the recommended 19L so I am worried it might be a little on the thin
    side. It is ...
