  • I work full time part of the year and go to university the rest, where I study History, English, and French. I have a small property in a little fishing village where I grow my own vegetables, keep hens, brew, and work on improving my land. I'm happily married to a photographer / reporter and enjoy various outdoor activities, in addition to reading and music.

  • Posted in thread: Home-malted wheat beer - stuck fermentation? on 12-15-2015 at 11:23 PM
    Hi guys, I'll get right to the point, since I suspect this may be one of those
    paranoid-no-problem threads. I've got a weisbier on the go that I started using 60/40 wheat
    malt / marris otter. I malted...

    Well, they're finally bottled! Two weeks to go and we'll see the results.

    Wine and cider, eh? That should be interesting. I'm sure the flavour carried from the wine to
    the oak on its own would be sufficient to add character.Mine is ready to bottle. I'm just
    waiting for some...

    Hahaha yeah, it certainly took some time... I would be willing to repeat the process, but only
    until I get enough gear to make it easier.

    With -4.45 in my bank account, a bag of marris otter malt, one bag of wyeast British Ale yeast,
    and some cascade hops, I set about brewing my first batch of all-grain beer the day before
    yesterday. I ...

    Thanks for all the advice. I'll also order in Magnum's book, in addition to Phil's. I don't
    mind rhetoric so much. I'm getting my bees in a 4-frame nuc, which means I have to make a
    conversion box (al...

    Interesting idea. As they're medium toast, I assume there is some room there for further
    development. I bet soaking them in the bourbon or even a very peaty scotch would also impart
    some interesting f...

    Virginia has a grant program for new hives. You can get $200 for each new hive you put in, up
    to $2400.I wish this was the case for me. That would pay for the bees, hive, and still give me
    a bit of ca...

    To decide my oak I just added 50% more than the package recommended. I wanted a very oaky
    flavour. Seeing that yours (HappyCider) lost some of its flavour in a month, I hope that mine
    will retain it b...

    Subbing. I'm working on convincing my wife we should move out of the city on the edge of the
    burbs and get a bigger house with a massive lot. With the massive lot comes tons of veggies and
    hopefully b...
