Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 02-16-2013 at 05:45 PM
Bottling up my Pilsner, then I'll be doing an all extract Strong Belgian. Tomorrow I'll do the
partial mash APA. I love it when my sister in law flies into town for the weekend and takes my
wife out o...

I just like good beer. I'd rather buy from Northern Lights, 12 string, Bi-Plane, or one of the
other locals here, but sometimes I'd like a Shock Top. I try to buy it from our local
independent store, ...

Two things....First I noticed you said use 3-4 quarts water in the mash for 2 lbs grain. For

I've been an extract brewer for 3 years. Austin Home Brew had the Kolsch PM on sale, so I

I got no advice, but I wish you all the luck in the world getting this taken care of. If it
were me, I'd be looking at a different attorney who at least wants to fight for you.
Posted in thread: AHS vs MWS vs NB on 01-27-2012 at 03:16 PM
I've used all three. Midwest doesn't have flat rate shipping, so if you're not careful the
price can jump on you pretty quick. AHS and NB...not really a big enough difference to tell
anyone one's bett...

I put a wedge under my fermenter on the first day. It helps the trub to mostly settle to one
side right from the beginning. But I also have an advantage in that I have my fermenter on a
shelf and siph...

I did an Irish Red just a couple weeks ago and used Wyeast 1084. It's still in the fermenter
though, so I can't really give you a critique.
