    When I visit my buddy in New Orleans usually our first stop is Port of Call. Pretty well known

    Quite a few people, including me, went the eBay route. Might take a week or two to find the

    Leaving early and going to the gym near work is an easy way to avoid traffic at least on the
    way in. Definitely look into getting some audiobooks. I used to travel 70-80% of the time for

    Single Tier HERMS that I finished last summer. Makes life so much easier and after spending

    I don't think anyone has mentioned Kolsches and Alts yet. Both of them ferment well in the high
    50's to low 60's.Obviously the more you can control the temperature the better, but plenty of
    people bre...

    For anything that is dry hopped with more than 1oz I have had good luck attaching a paint
    strainer to the end of the racking tube that is in the keg. I use a hose clamp to keep the bag
    on and it catch...

  • Posted in thread: Is adding spice to a beer in secondary or at bottling a sanitation problem? on 11-20-2011 at 04:53 AM
    Just wanted to let you guys know that I believe that adding raw spices in the secondary caused
    some off flavors in my pumpkin ale. I've made the beer a couple of times before but never added
    any addit...

    I really like Beer Alchemy as well. Currently use the mac, ipad and iphone apps. All work great
