    I specifically bought a Coors because I want the Broncos to win. I was going to drink it
    tomorrow. Do you think that would be bad luck?

  • Posted in thread: Question about yeast starters, simply for the pursuit of knowledge. on 01-27-2014 at 12:23 AM
    So I was wondering, why is adding DME to a yeast starter recommended/necessary while adding
    table sugar to "proof" the yeast is considered unnecessary/a hindrance? Basically, how is
    adding DME to the ...

    Was it in a bucket? I don't think buckets have a good enough seal for long term storage like

  • Posted in thread: Why is Beer Smith giving me different results each time? on 01-21-2014 at 05:54 PM
    I was using Beersmith 2.2 and when I converted an AG recipe to extract it included a little of
    the specialty grains. Then later I was converting the same recipe and the specialty grains were
    gone in t...

    For most of us, homebrewing is a hobby, not a way to save money.True. Many of us home brewers
    did start off seeking to save money and found it was just as enjoyable to make beer as it was
    to drink it...

  • Posted in thread: What software? on 01-20-2014 at 05:49 PM
    I use a Mac and I have beersmith 2.2 (which is beersmith 2.1 on disc plus a free update). Not
    the cheapest software but I like it so far. I think on their sites theres a 21 day trial so you
    can test t...

    I'm trying to scale a NB kit down to a 2.5 gal batch. It's the British bitter. Calls for 3.5
    lbs Maris Otter LME late addition but I do not see a a Maris Otter except for the actual grain.
    Any help wo...

    So there is food grade and brewers grade grain. Brewers grade is the highest quality and thus
    what you want to brew with. I'm assuming that bakers malt extract is made with food grade grain
    (barely, w...

  • Posted in thread: First batch..with a question! on 01-08-2014 at 04:12 PM
    Since it scorched, chances are you were using LME (DME floats to the top and is much harder to
    scorch, at least in my experience) so I might think your beer might come out darker than
    expected but per...

  • Posted in thread: Best way to bottle condition at/above 70 degrees? on 01-05-2014 at 03:12 PM
    Nope, did not realize I would need a heat element until you all pointed it out to me. Kind of
    obvious yes since only on Christmas day did it get over 80 degrees here, my ambient temps
    wouldn't go that...
