    i have 8 gallon but sometimes find myself wanting a 10. An occassional 90 minute boil and a
    once in a while 6 gallon batch (to split into 2 kegs) makes that happen. I never thought I
    would do a double...

    I brewed a Saison a week ago today with wyeast 3724. OG - 1.048. I kept the temp at 90. I
    checked the FG on Friday and it was already 1.008 (recipe predicted 1.013) so I cut the heat
    off and it is now...

    I recently tried Ponce, and World Beer Cup Gold medal winning Saison from Quest Brewery in SC
    and I fell in love. So much so that I immediately went to LHBS to get the ingredients. Anyway,
    I will be a...

    I made a stout that I wanted to age until August but company came and I went ahead and tapped
    it early. There is over half of it left in a 3 gallon keg. If I just shut the CO2 off and close
    the valve ...

    I soaked some oak cubes in bourbon 1.5 yrs ago and ended up with some leftover bourbon. The
    cubes sat in it for probably couple a months. I assume I could just use this for my next
    bourbon barrel aged...

    a word of caution...if you keep reusing bottles the neck will eventually break. I even have a
    bench capper and had one break while opening. I have no idea how many times that particular
    bottle had bee...

    I have read that NS is an interesting hop that can mimic a white wine. I have used them before
    but I also had some Galaxy in the mix and don't recall any white wine flavor. That beer was a
    4%ABV made ...
