    Do you want to make an ale or a mead?I have a chamomile mead in the primary right now. I
    steeped about a fistful of chamomile flowers 10 minutes in 2 gal hot water and pulled them out.
    I added 5lb hon...

    Funny things I've overheard about beer? Every RateBeer post I've read to date counts in my
    mind. Ask two posters about one beer and get three answers, each of which contains at least one
    of these word...

    How much bottling sugar did you use? How warm have the bottles been? You will probably oxidize
    your beer if you do anything to it now... and one batch of low-carb nectar is better than five
    gallons of...

  • Posted in thread: No Hop Taste or Aroma! I'm Perplexed! Help? on 03-19-2014 at 04:32 PM
    I find I get the best hop aroma when I add the aroma hops five minutes before, and again just
    as, I stop boiling. Give that brew another try with .5oz aroma hops each at five and zero
    minutes, and coo...

  • Posted in thread: What's in my beer? on 03-15-2014 at 08:54 PM
    Don't dump it unless it tastes foul-- and not even then unless it has aged a few months and
    still tastes foul. That doesn't look all that bad, and I am going to guess it's just
    yeast.Also, get that ca...

    Man, sorry to hear about your beer, really a bummer. I used this yeast 4 times over by top
    cropping and have nothing but good things to say about it! Dont give up on the strain.+1 to
    this, especially ...

  • Posted in thread: how long did it take you to get good? on 03-12-2014 at 03:11 AM
    I've never had a batch that didn't taste good with the exception of a Christmas beer that had
    spices and orange peel in it. It was one of my first beers and it just didn't taste good at
    all. I dumped ...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling... on 03-11-2014 at 04:12 AM
    Off-topic, but worth mentioning if you get bottle bombs: if your are adding the corn sugar per
    bottle, you're probably adding it as powder or carbing drops and then filling up with beer,
    right?I sugge...

    NO INFECTION!I let it right for another couple of weeks and it ended up being long hanging
