  • Posted in thread: Can You Brew It recipe for Lagunitas IPA on 10-31-2015 at 04:59 PM
    I did the recipe on the OP and have had it in the keg for a couple weeks now. It's a good beer,
    but if I were to sample it without knowing what it was, I wouldn't be saying "That's a
    Lagunitas IPA." I...

  • Posted in thread: First brew IPA all grain time and fg? on 08-02-2015 at 02:08 PM
    For what it's worth, I just wanted to pass along some kudos for jumping straight into all grain
    for your very first batch. I did extract and partial grain for about a year before making the
    switch. I ...

  • Posted in thread: Gelatin in Primary vs. Keg on 07-11-2015 at 02:01 PM
    I've got a batch that I'm ready to cold crash and subsequently keg. And in further search of
    clear beer, I'd also like to use gelatin. My question is on sequencing. I'd rather not transfer
    to a second...

    What brewery was this?This was Beerworks in Boston. Right across the street from Fenway. It was
    on tap there as "Bambino"

    My goal is a fairly easy to drink IPA, bordering on a Pale, no caustic hops, in the vein of a
    Founders All Day. Leaning towards the First Wort on the Simcoe to mellow the acrid but pull the
    flavor (an...

  • Posted in thread: Possibly underpitched? Repitch or dump? on 01-04-2015 at 03:55 PM
    I see no problem with re-pitching at this point. But... you might also give it some time. If
    the pack swelled after you smacked it, then that's an indication that you do have viable yeast.
    Also, not s...

  • Posted in thread: First Time Brewer...Long time drinker in Illinois on 01-01-2015 at 11:30 PM
    My first question is do you have the right equipment to do a 7 gallon batch? That's going to be
    pushing the limit of your standard carboys or ale pails that are usually geared for a 5 gallon
    batch. Yo...

  • Posted in thread: Carboy exploded!!! on 01-01-2015 at 11:23 PM
    Is this just further evidence to suggest that fermenting in an Ale Pail is a much safter/better
    way to go than using a carboy??

    (I always rack to secondary) One other thing you may want to re-consider... After reading the
    advice of many of the elders on this board, I've done away with racking to a secondary - even
    when I'm dry...

    +1 on just ditching the carboy and going with an Ale Pail. Glad you weren't injured.
