    Yeah, one thing I really keep meaning to do is brew another Belgian ale, put it in bottles, and
    forget about it for a while. Those definitely age the best.

    Wow, it's already been four years? My first son was born the day after my last post on this, so
    I haven't brewed as much as I used to.I also almost exclusively keg now, so I don't have a big
    stockpile...

    I went ahead and used it. Kegged yesterday and the beer seemed fine. :D

    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...

    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
    doing a dou...

    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
    Christmas wheat beer...

    I bought some powder peanut butter and plan to try brewing this again with it, hopefully early
    2014.

    Three weeks will probably be long enough to get it mostly de-oiled. Something else to try is to
    skim the oil off during the boil, because it wants to float on the water. Just ease the heat
    back a mome...

    This entire thing is a humiliating fiasco. I hesitate to even fully explain what happened, but,
    it's kinda funny, and maybe someone else will learn from my mistakes.When I initially took
    apart the con...
