Posted in thread: My wife is awesome! on 09-02-2012 at 05:58 PM
You know, my wife got me started in brewing as well. She got me a couple of books on the
subject for a Christmas present, and said she thought I might enjoy it. Having now spent about
$1200.00 on home...

Very nice work there, bt. That weld is sexy! Did you think about keeping the original fitting
on the top, and making your new hole on the bottom of the keg? That way you could mount a 2"
tri-clamp on ...

I steeped some chocolate malt for a Double Chocolate Double Coffee Imperial Stout I did and it
turned out great. I would just skip the mash and steep @ 155-160F for 15-20 min. I usually add
my grain w...

Hard to say, but whether or not it mimics the DFH, it looks like it will be a damn good beer
regardless. I'm interested to hear how this one comes out!Thanks for the vote of confidence.
I'll post the ...

Just wondering why you're bothering to do a mini-mash.Chocolate, Caramel, and Roasted barley,

not too fam...

Just tried a sixer of this, the wife and I really liked it, so obviously, I want to try to brew

Hey guys,I know I'm prolly splitting hairs here, escpecially since it's only 1.6 oz we're

I took a few ounces of hops and steeped them in a gallon of warm water and then measured what
was left.Simple and direct, very nice. Thanks again for passing it along.

Any hop can be a boil hop for bittering, but typically, the ones with a higher alpha acid
content are used the most. This is to minimize the amount of hops used to get the desired
IBU's, thus lowering...
Posted in thread: Using dried whole hops on 06-23-2012 at 06:52 PM
I use whole hops exclusively. I plan on whole leaf hops absorbing about 0.1 gal / oz of hops.
