  • Posted in thread: Extract brew turning out darker than it should be on 12-28-2014 at 06:39 PM
    Check out german beer institute at this link for descriptions & pictures of various beers,
    including hefe's, etc... From what I've seen, not all wheat ales are created equal, ie light.
    Some do have m...

    Looks OK so far. I'd stay with kits or simple recipes until you develop a brewing process that
    works for you. Besides becoming familiar with the process of brewing itself. Then branch out,
    maybe with ...

  • Posted in thread: egg smell? on 12-28-2014 at 06:14 PM
    As for seismogenic, two weeks may likely have not been enough for the hydrogen sulfide to
    dissipate. Also, it could've used more bottle conditioning time lacking sufficient primary
    clean up time. But ...

  • Posted in thread: Dry hopping to improve a recipe? on 12-28-2014 at 06:08 PM
    Whether PA/APA/IPA, I like to use the same hops for dry hopping as used in the boil. Since our
    senses of smell & taste are so inexorably linked, I do that purposely to give a fuller
    experience. But ot...

  • Posted in thread: Stratified wort on 12-28-2014 at 05:59 PM
    The stratification is just trub, etc settling out before visible fermentation started. So when
    visible fermentation got going, the swirling action it creates naturally stirred it up again.
    Also seems ...

  • Posted in thread: Bready/toasty Pale Ale on 12-28-2014 at 05:39 PM
    No, the amount of different grains is OK. German grains to me have a fine toasted bread kind of
    flavor, like Munich 10L. Carared tastes like lightly toasted nuts to me. I also like the
    Bohemian pilsne...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling bucket ( do I really need one)? on 12-28-2014 at 05:29 PM
    But does the vacuum pump have a tube on it that goes to the bottom of the bottle? If yes then
    you certainly could. Otherwise, splashing into the bottom of the bottle is bad. The bottling
    bucket is eas...

    ^ What does it smell/taste like? I'm still a bit confused by the various color descriptions.
    Not to mention, raw sugar was used, then molasses began to be listed as well. Since some texts
    say the beer...

I have to admit this time of year is really starting to suck out loud. They always wait til Thanksgiving time to fuck me outta my last dime. This year is the worst ever. We got no tree,I know I'm not getting any gifts,had to shop at the cheapy store to get the kids something at least. Which is hard cause they're all grown. I got no beer ready,so nothing to drink. No cigs,no vodka,no bourbon...none of the usual. WE only have italian sausage to go with spaghetti tonight because of the food bank. There's no pity for a broke retiree. No $$ till 12/31,which does nothing about right now.
