  • Hubby and I tried brewing about 20 years ago with all extract kits and were never happy with the beer we made. After about 3 tries, we gave it up. Then just recently I got the bug again after hearing about a book on NPR about home brewing in 1 gallon batches. I always hated throwing out 5 gallons of bad beer but I figured 1 gallon would be easier to dump if the beer was bad. So now I am brewing with a 2 gallon fermenting bucket, 1 gallon jug and 12 qt. stockpot.

    I recently brewed a Golden Ale using an American Ale yeast. It was brewed 2 1/2 weeks ago and
    the krausen has not completely dropped yet. It looks really strange, all lumpy as you can see
    in the pictu...

    Okay, I think I've got it now. Thanks a bunch for your input.

  • Posted in thread: Need help in understanding hop additions in recipe on 08-30-2013 at 08:23 PM
    So that would mean a total of 5.64 oz and then 3.36 oz. correct?

    I am preparing to brew a saison ale and the recipe is a bit confusing when it comes to the
    hops. It reads as so:5.64AAU Hallertau hops(1.41 oz/40 g at 4% alpha acids)3.36 AAU Hallertau
    hops(0.84 oz/24...

    I am going to recreate the Chocolate Cherry Stout I brewed a few months ago. However, this time
    I plan to add cocoa powder to the boil rather than cocoa nibs in the secondary. How much cocoa
    powder wo...

    Did you have to add yeast for bottling? How much cacao & cherries did you use?No, I did not add
    any additional yeast at bottling. I made a one gallon batch and for that I used 12 ounces of
    frozen blac...

    Thanks for the advice. Looks like I'll be asking Santa for a BIGGER brew pot for Christmas.

    This is my problem, I have been brewing 1 gallon all-grain batches. I have been using a 12 qt.
    stock pot to boil my wort. I now want to make a five gallon batch and I'd like to know if I can
    do my mas...

    It spent 4 weeks in the primary then 2 weeks in the secondary with the bourbon, chocolate and
    cherries.

  • Posted in thread: Chocolate Cherry Stout question on 11-19-2011 at 12:02 PM
    Just to follow up on my Chocolate Cherry Bourbon Stout. I opened up the first bottle last
    night. It was nicely carbonated after 3 weeks in the bottle at around 70 degrees. It tasted
    awesome. This bein...
