Ugh no one likes to hear a tale of woe like that. It's worse that it was sooo close to being
drinkable too. I've had a 100% failure mishap at the very beginning, when I was boiling wort,
but not in an...
Posted in thread: White Labs WLP013 London Ale really stinks on 11-28-2013 at 05:12 AM
I made a couple starters tonight, one with WLP013 London Ale. It was a bit chunky and cottage
cheesy looking, and it smelled a bit sour. I haven't brewed in a long time, but I used to use
WLP013 all t...

Glad to see so many others going for it on Friday. I also have no interest in descending into
the madness of the crowds. We have throttled back on our initial enthusiasm a bit and are only

After a massive hiatus, I'm dusting off my equipment and getting ready to go out all on a
ridiculous TRIPLE brewing day this Friday. I'll be doing a porter, an imperial IPA, and a

This entire thing is a humiliating fiasco. I hesitate to even fully explain what happened, but,

Wow, hadn't looked at this thread in ages. The beer was actually pretty good. It ended up
having a "flaw", diacetyl, which gave it a butterscotch flavor. The funny thing is, that flavor

Yeah, that's what I thought at first, but when I turned it around, it didn't seem to want to
engage at all, like the other end was too short to reach the post. I might try that again just
to be sure t...

I just kegged two brews! Before I did, I took a part the beer side ball lock connectors to

anything, so I thou...
