    ABOUT ME

  • St. Louis
  • I started brewing around the first of the year and really love it, it reminds me a lot of cooking, there is so much you can do to create interesting beers and I can't find nearly enough time to brew.

    I am married and have 2 children and one of our favorite things to do is camp. We have a Coleman Santa Fe pop-up camper and we try to go at least 7-10 times a year and visit mainly Missouri State Parks.

    I work in IT but my real goal is to open a restaurant or diner of some sort. I love to cook and while I do not have the most sophisticated palette but I do enjoy creating and serving great tasting food.

  • I took some gift cards I got at xmas and bought a homebrew kit from the lhbs. I already had a turkey fryer and a 4 gallon SS pot so I was ready to roll. I currently have your standard 6.5 gallon plastic pale for a primary, a 6.5 gallon carboy and a 5 gallon carboy for my secondary fermenters. I also have a 48qt Igloo cooler that I converted to a MLT.

    I like to make APA and IPA's but want to start branching out to some other styles.

    OK so they didn't rise like I expected but I think that is because I screwed up and had the
    seam side down. When I bake sandwich loaves I slice the tops so that some of the gas can escape
    and I think ...

    Nothing I love better than commenting on threads started over 2 years ago but I have two loaves
    of this working right now, by the time I get home tonight they will have risen for 23 hours. I
    did 2 cup...

    This blonde ale I did finished at 1.003 or 1.004. You wouldn't even know it was a 5.5% beer it
    tastes so light and crisp.

    I have used it many times in the past and knew it was fast but I guess I had forgotten. I have
    some Pacman yeast I have been using and that takes a good 8-10 days before it's done.

  • Posted in thread: Nottingham yeast is a BEAST! on 05-26-2010 at 03:33 PM
    The krausen is gone, the yeast has almost completely dropped out and the beer went from 1.041
    to 1.007 in less than 48 hours! I don't think I have ever seen notty work so fast before. :ban:

  • Posted in thread: Noob Question on 03-04-2010 at 09:30 PM
    Not sure how many ounces, it was about a cup though. I had it in the house so it was around
    68F. Wish I could say I was patient, just donít have enough time in the day!!The longer you let
    the beer cle...

    great idea gila, I will try that tonight.

  • Posted in thread: Beer carbonated in the carboy before it was done. on 03-04-2010 at 03:38 PM
    If it is carbonated, maybe the carbonation is just pushing your hydrometer up further than what
    the gravity is and thus giving off an inaccurate reading. Either way, your gravity is probably
    staying w...

    I have noticed a small amount on beers that have finished in the past, but not at this level.
    Combine the large amounts of co2 with the fact that I need to shave off another 8+ points and I
    was a litt...

    I brewed a 10g batch of beer 2 weeks ago and I split it up among two carboys and pitched my
    yeast. Everything seemed to be going fine except last week when I tested the gravity, one of
    the carboys was...
