    Greetings everyone,I am looking to bottle condition a 8%+ stout for six to seven months while I
    do my tour in the middle east. My question should I just bottle in a typical grolsch bottle or
    should I ...

    For the grain aftertaste I suggest using a Secondary. Not only did I notice a way clearer beer,
    the taste cleaned up as well. My primaries would have excessive trub which even being very
    careful would...

  • Posted in thread: Harsh bitter taste from bottled ale?? on 02-09-2013 at 12:47 PM
    I second the Chloramines in the tap water. I also have noticed harsh taste since using tap
    water w/ AG. The local brew club hooked me up with a water profile and told me to use RO and
    adjust w/ salts....

    Put an ad on Craigslist for empty bottles. I have helped many new brewers this way or buy a
    case of decent craft beer and use the empties. Before you know it you will have cases upon
    cases of empties.

    By the way been doing BIAB for about 10 batches and love it. Just been getting alot of gushers
    for some reason since I moved to AG. Don't know if I am sucking yeast back into the bottles or
    what. Some...

  • Posted in thread: Back to Full boils w/extract on 01-27-2013 at 01:57 AM
    I guess I was vague. Do you all steep grains in same 5 gallons or separate? Do you cut
    bittering hops. Last time I did a full boil with extract it seemed watered down. Is there
    really a huge taste dif...

    Greetings everyone,Just recently got back into 5 gallon extract batches from AG to save some
    time and keep pipeline going. I have done two before with pretty good results. Any suggestions
    to the proce...

  • Posted in thread: Apple Cider with Beer? on 01-26-2013 at 01:20 PM
    It is called graff. I believe it is 4 gallons of cider and 1 gallon of beer but either way
    sounds delicious to me. I am getting the ingredients together soon and making a batch. There is
    a recipe on h...

    Which of the test would it be? W-9 Household Coliform Bacteria & Complete Mineral Test*That is
    the one that is close to 40 dollars but they have a few more for 10 dollars cheaper.

  • Posted in thread: Beer Foaming out of Bottle on 01-15-2013 at 12:49 AM
    Let them sit for longer. I had numerous batches do this once I switched to all grain. Usually
    six to eight weeks and you should be in the clear. If they are still doing after six then you
    should chang...
