    I brewed this on 12/15. Though I bumped the molasses up to 3/4lb. I didn't have any Target on
    hand, so I substituted with Nugget. Also, double pitched S-04. I might prime with local honey
    rather than ...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle capper far away... on 07-12-2013 at 03:36 AM
    So I have an IPA fermenting at my parents house since I can regulate the temperature better
    there. Anyhow, I brought my bottling equipment to their house and in the midst of bottling,
    realized that I ...

  • Posted in thread: First time: What can I make/plan with these? on 11-27-2012 at 11:25 PM
    Your list is similar to something I just brewed. Im moving at the end of the year and wanted to
    use up stuff that has been taking up shelf space in the kitchen/fridge. Its something of an
    ESB:6.6lb. g...

  • Posted in thread: Hurricane, hops and yeast on 11-15-2012 at 11:47 PM
    I didnt have power for 10 days. Im wondering if my hops/yeast went bad. The house is older and
    it was very chilly throughout the house with no heat. Id hate to lose my hop stash, but I dont
    wont to ma...

    I feel like there is some biscuit malt in the grain bill.

  • Posted in thread: No fermentation yet... 78 hours and counting on 08-16-2011 at 11:09 PM
    I made a Black American Ale over the weekend and still didnt have any activity as of this
    morning. Fortunately, there is a HBS near my office, so I bought some yeast (among other
    supplies) at lunch ti...

  • Posted in thread: Post infection or krausen in seconday? on 06-24-2011 at 09:33 PM
    Tuesday, I racked a porter to secondary after six weeks in primary. I just noticed today that
    is has a thin krausen layer on top. I kind of freaked at first, but I dont believe it to be an
    infection.

  • Posted in thread: Coriander and Orange Peel on 06-22-2011 at 02:29 AM
    I brewed a wheat today for the first time and added Coriander & Sweet Orange Peel in the last
    10 minutes of the boil. I put it in primary and pitched a Belgian Wheat Yeast. Through reading
    about Coria...

  • Posted in thread: What gives head? on 04-19-2011 at 10:27 PM
    Hops (especially with high alpha acids) create head. So if you're brewing an IPA, you generally
    dont have to worry. Certain grains/malts also help with head, such as carapils or torrified
    wheat. These...
