    ABOUT ME

  • Brewing,Snowboarind,Computer Programming,Traveling,Turntables
  • In early 2011, A friend and I dreamed of one day brewing our own beer. By late 2011 we put our pennies to good use and bought a Ale Pale kit through an online site. Our first brew was done on the side burner of a grill. New and naive to brewing, we forged on to a tasteful Pale Ale. rn rnSince then, we have upgrade to a glass primary carboy, as well as a 5 gallon glass secondary. We have also invested in a outdoor burner and started doing full 5 gallon boils. rnIn the beginning of 2012, I started working on DIY projects. I built a MLT, bought a bigger kettle, built a stir plate and made the jump to all grain. rnHomebrewing is one of my favorite hobbies, I love every detail about it. I love researching and reading on all things from the chemistry of the mash to different DIY projects. I'm always looking for ways to improve my brewing.

    ahead and order plenty to get the job done and then some since they're not locally available.

    Love this!What's the over all available height? My original ferm chamber turned into a 4 keg

  • Posted in thread: unwanted high gravity of a stout? on 03-23-2015 at 01:09 AM
    Yeah, I think I over think things. Top off was about 3/4 gallon. I mean with an extract kit I
    can't really over shot a gravity since sugars aren't being converted. In future I'll take pre
    top of gravi...

  • Posted in thread: unwanted high gravity of a stout? on 03-22-2015 at 11:17 PM
    I just brewed a canyon cream stout.. The gravity came in a 1.065 after I had topped it off to
    slightly over 5 gallons. was something along the lines of 16 ounces of specialty grains @ 170F
    for 30 min6...

    something new com...

    Thanks. I need to renew my membership to WVHBC, as I didn't pay this year. Wasn't able to make
    it to many meetings with a new born.As for doing it AG, I'd need to do more research, not sure

  • Posted in thread: First time brewing 10 gallons - Help wanted on 03-17-2015 at 04:23 AM
    yeah.. going to go ahead and straight double and see where it gets me. Hard to stomach the
    price tag.. now to convince the lads to split the $100 price tag 3 ways and still give me half
    the beer. :D

  • Posted in thread: First time brewing 10 gallons - Help wanted on 03-17-2015 at 02:13 AM
    So the more research I do the more it looks like i CAN simply double the recipe... Atleast
    start their and dial back grain bill or hops, but being an ipa if it ends up slightly hoppier I
    think i'll be...
