On my third paycheck I splurged, bought a deluxe kit from Maryland Homebrew, a 5 gallon kettle, and everything else. Then I did a sour as my first beer, and it'll be aging until its anniversary most likely.

    Thanks for all the advice everyone! We took the bittering note to heart (especially as our
    yield was a bit lower than expected), and used Magnum at 60. We did a BIAB mini-mash with
    Vienna instead of M...

    Haha yeah, it'll be...something. I mean ideally we'll get something akin to a cascade brewed
    cali common, but could really go any direction on the bitterness.Any thoughts on the base
    extract / grains?...

    So a buddy of mine and I are brewing a wet hop beer using what he was able to grow in his
    garden. By all accounts the hops look and feel good, so we wanted to come up with a demo beer.
    I'm banking off...

    I'm doing a kinda odd wit. Sweet orange peel instead of bitter, fermentation with WLP400 and
    Brett Lambicus, and dry hopping with Saaz. Hallertau as the bittering hop, Saaz at 15-5-0 in
    the boil. Oran...

    Admittedly I keep the acidulated malt there as it was in the original malt bill for the beer.
    Only changes are from Sparkling Amber to Rye otherwise. It's more to make sure I have a similar
    beer to wh...

    Posted this over on BA, but wanted to get thoughts here as well!Both are, somewhat dramatically
    if you're being super strict about style, altered versions of recipes I've enjoyed in the past.

    So, I've been a bit bored and been wanting to try a sour mash gose. However, given the variable
    results of sour mashing I figured maybe extract + specialty grain would be an easy start.Since
    I have to...

  • Posted in thread: White Labs Trappist & Brett Lambicus in a "belgo" Oatmeal Stout? on 12-24-2013 at 02:52 PM
    So a professional brewer is letting me use some of their wort to make a different
    interpretation of their oatmeal stout. I decided it would be interesting to try a Trappist
    yeast in combination with b...
