Posted in thread: brewing at a different location than where the wort will ferment? on 01-27-2011 at 05:18 PM
I have done this more than once with no apparent negative side effects. Pitch the yeast and

infect that wo...

Nugget Nectar is super delicious. I don't know much else about Troegs, though

I might have to start saving my pennies and get the whole kit seen here: much would I save if

Posted in thread: must you strain wort into primary on 02-24-2010 at 08:36 PM

I'll check the gravity today, I just hope I'm not down to 1.005 or something. That wouldn't

at least 1.060. My local homebrew club buys grain in bulk from Mid Country Malts near Chicago

through a carboy neck all the time in order to dry-hop certain beers. 2 litres of grape skins

Well I gone and done it. I got my dream job in Austin and am moving in a month or whatever. Now
I need to know, what clubs are out there in Austin? I have been brewing pretty decent brews for
