    ABOUT ME

  • Did a 1/2 dozen batches about 10 years ago and have seen been playing with fermented foods and beverages on a small scale. I'm looking to get back into brewing of all types, but am most interested in inexpensive, simple things. I love to make and build project-type stuff that can help my brewing.

    Yes, I did a pale... well, I guess it was an amber because I couldn't get light DME at my LHBS,
    and it was great!

    I really enjoyed the 15 minute Cascade Pale Ale recipe recently and I'd like to do more 15
    minute boil recipes. They seem like a great way just to keep the keg full of something I want
    to drink.I'm lo...

    For everyone interested in ferm temp, this is supposed to be a warm ferment. Not 90 degrees
    warm but in the 70s more like. This type of yeast definitely does not favor the 60s either.I
    can attest to t...

    I'm making MoreBeer's Doppel Bock and have looked all over, only to find precious little
    information about how to actually deal with the lagering. I have a nice fermentation controller
    that's been han...

    So... I like the idea, and I am going to try it plain and simple but of course I am already
    planning on how to screw with it! I can get the qu yeast balls locally and I know that I need
    the enzymes th...

    So if I am going to do a long boil to drive off water, I assume that I boil until I get to my
    standard pre-boil volume and then start the usual timers? Will there be undesirable effects on
    the beer su...

    I did end up buying the "Big Ben" vintage capper on ebay ( I'm quite happy with it... too bad
    I couldn't find it locally!

    And oh yeah, this was my first batch for which I had done a starter.... I am quite upset at how
    this batch turned out on its way into the fermenter.

    I had used a few times before to calculate my mash water and strike temp. It had seemed to
    work, but this time it was way off.I was brewing what should have been a nice dubbel, but ended
    up with ove...
