  • I'm work in the field of emergency services, as a paramedic, in New Hampshire. I've had the chance to live in Europe for 2 years and taste many of the brews that Northern Switzerland and Southern Germany have to offer. Something I would go back and do all over again if given the chance.

  • A buddy of mine sponsored a club league basketball team I played for while living in Switzerland. He brewed THE BEST beer I have ever tasted. Since then, I've been hooked on refining the process to brew something close. I'm currently using a large Coleman cooler with a CPVC manifold with 2 large 40 qt pots to go along with my turkey fryer.

    Hit it with gel. The first 2-3 pints will pour off looking like Mississippi mud but the rest
    will be crystal clear. I usually allow my gel to work for a week before pouring my first pint.
    But if you d...

    I'm no yeast expert but I would not reuse yeast that have just completed such hard work on a
    very heavy wort. I would have made a starter with new and healthy yeast. They may have stalled

    conviction let ...

  • Posted in thread: Bitter recipe. Very first recipe on 08-31-2016 at 03:00 AM
    Those are all fairly mild hops when it comes to alpha acids. Meaning that they don't impact a

    Geez, I guess I'm one of the few people that has made the jump back from all grain to extract.
    It's a huge time commitment issue, as well as cleanup process in all grain. Since I have a
    young son, who...

    Are they ready to be picked?- likely not- if you want to know for sure, pop one off and
    inspect. The pic further up looks close- this is a chinook from this morning - still quite
