Well, I followed your advice and dumped it in the back yard. We're due to reseed anyway.

Well, I did something really stupid. Last time I brewed, I forgot to throw out the spent
grains!Anyway, I came back to find them moldy, as moist, carbohydrate-laced mixtures are wont
to do, and smelli...

K, it said on the label to only use lysol on surfaces like tile and kitchen counters, and not
to use it on plastic or food. Since the smell is gone, I think I'm okay. I just needed a little

I have a 10 gallon Igloo mash tun that I found had mold in it this morning (must have left it a
little damp last brew day). I instinctively responded to the mold by spraying a rag with
kitchen lysol a...

simply hated that acidic environment. I had to dump mine.I will definitely try it again later,
with a mor...

I have five gallons of it gone dry in my fermenter. I tasted some from the hydrometer without

I'm going to ...

I'm interested in doing an IPA with Australian hops (part of a Team Fortress 2 themed beer
series I'm making, and this is to be the Sniper's beer), and I keep coming across Galaxy hops,
which sound re...
Posted in thread: Do all Lambics/Sours need to age for >1 year? on 05-16-2010 at 06:13 PM
I'm a relatively new brewer (about 4 months now) who just went all grain, and I just tried a
lambic from the liquor store and really liked it. Yes, it was Lindeman's, but that was all they
had and I d...

Thanks for the recipe. It's my second all grain (first was Haus Pale ale!), and it's fermenting
very well. I came out with nearly 6 gallons (too much sparge water, most likely), but I came
