    ABOUT ME

  • Biological Science Technician (microbiology)
  • Really started getting serious brewing in November 2012. November brewed dunkelweizen. December got a hefeweizen kit (brewer's Best then did some of my own things). Did it new year's Eve. January, didn't brew. February did a roggenbier. harvested yeast from hefeweizen and dunkelweizen. March brewed brown porter. April brewed Robust porter. May brewed the Patersbier. June brewed the California Common and this month (July), working on TRYING to brew a Belgian Golden Strong Ale. Too many interests on what to brew. I figure in 5 years I might focus on a couple 2 - 3 beers to have year around.
  • Belgian golden Strong
  • I don't believe in them. Though i might consider if ever did a high gravity.
  • NB Patersbier extract, California Common
  • I have a keg.....

    maybe 3 days. I had blow off tubing on it in basement at 67 or 68 degrees F. At end of day 2 it
    looked a...

    Okay. Thanks. I guess I English sparge. I mash, drain. Add sparge water, sit 10 minutes or so
    after stirring, drain.

  • Posted in thread: First Wort Hopping with English Sparge? on 07-14-2013 at 04:18 AM
    Or maybe (just occured to me), mash enough for 5 gallons or whatever your batch size is, and
    that's it?

  • Posted in thread: First Wort Hopping with English Sparge? on 07-14-2013 at 04:17 AM
    What's an English sparge? I could Google or Bing it but...I figure let's see from home brewer's
    forum?! If it's 'quick sparge', kind of thinking batch sparge or no sparge or something.

    I was at a brew supply store today. Getting 1" blow-off tubing and priming sugar. ALMOST bought
    a package of newer yeast and start over. We'll see. I brewed a California Common style beer 4
    weeks ago ...

    So....Was planning on brewing a BGSA Sunday. Got a lot going on and kind of wishing I was going

    questioning my sta...
