    I searched the recipe forum and found the following recipe posted by Cheshire Cat for what
    looks to be a very yummy Chocolate Stout: just wanted to see if anyone has any others that
    they really like...

  • Posted in thread: Recovering from poor dry hop/racking technique on 08-16-2014 at 06:49 PM
    So last night I went to keg a pale ale I dry hopped last week. This was the first time I used
    pellets instead of whole leaf. I also dry hopped in the primary. When I took the lid off the
    fermenter I n...

  • Posted in thread: Mold in my StarSan Container on 08-15-2014 at 06:57 PM
    I've been mixing up 5 gal batches of StarSan and keeping it in a sealded Homer bucket. The last
    time I opened it up I noticed I had some black fuzzy mold taking up residence on the inner
    surface of th...

    Tends to be on ths dry side then?I did a Saison over the winter. OG was 1.080. FG was 1.003. As
    I figure it.. it's nearly a 10.3 ABV. I'm having a VERY difficult time getting any sort of
    carbonation i...

  • Posted in thread: First Brew Looking for some Recomendations on 06-20-2014 at 03:39 PM
    The more batches I do, and the more experienced brewers I talk to - the more I'm convinced that
    just leaving it in the primary is the best way to go - even with dry hopping. I even tend to
    get better ...

  • Posted in thread: Coopers real ale on 06-03-2014 at 01:12 AM
    I just finished off a keg of Coopers Real Ale a couple of weeks ago. I used 500g of light DME;
    250g of dextrose and about 225g of maltodextrin. I thought it was a decent beer, but I don't
    know if I'll...

  • Posted in thread: Cream ale, American wheat or weizenbier? on 06-02-2014 at 01:24 PM
    I saw a kit/recipe on Northern Brewer (I think) for a Spotted Cow cream ale clone. I think the
    called it "Speckled Heiffer".. cute. It had good reviews and I was thinking of trying that. I'm

  • Posted in thread: Carbing a keg on 05-22-2014 at 11:13 PM
    My (limited) experience has been that trying to rapid carb is a a futile experience. Sure, you
    can get the fizzies in there. But it seems to me like time just makes makes for better beer. If
    you go nu...

    Might this be an example of the benefits in brewing in an Ale Pail?

  • Posted in thread: Making a pale ale, would appreciate help with recipe. on 05-18-2014 at 03:10 PM
    There's a beer that I fell in love with at a brewpub in Boston. I'd characterize the beer as an
    American Pale Ale. Nice hoppy flavor and aroma, but not much on the bittering.. which suits my
    pallate p...
