  • I learned from a family member. We did a 5 gallon all grain batch of amber on the stove. I was hooked. Soon after I luckily stumbled on some used brew kegs for sale in a local home brew shop. Started making 10 gallon batches and study books on it etc. rn I've made several beers usually based on but not exact to recipes I've found here and there. I mostly brew quick turn around ales. I got into making mead a little bit. The honey is from my bees at this point. I'm still learning and really enjoy brewing.rnrn Thanks to HomeBrewTalk.com and all the members.

    Maybe tint the windows of your brewing area this way all of your carboys might benefit or
    bottles too. Just a thought. I like your idea. I would think tinting would be good for a few
    hours or the occa...

    bctdi, Thank you for elaborating on my windshield analogy. I find it interesting that plane
    windshields are a combination of glass and plastic. I've been driving over twenty years and
    luckily I never ...

    When I think of a glass carboy I think of something that is not able to absorb anything and
    something that does not excrete anything. After I clean a carboy I believe that it is truly
    clean. I can see...

    I stepped on a piece of carboy glass this year and it sucked but I still love my glass carboys
    and carboy handles. I question plastic. I know that there are different grades and what not but
    I like th...

    around the internet a bit. I found some of the stoneware bottles selters Nassau. None had
    labels but the appr...

    I was at a homebrew party last night and my friend showed me this bottle he got from a basement
    he was cleaning out. They said he could have it. The cork looks good to me. He said that what

    I couldn't ignore it any longer. Just thinking about it now is making it hurt. It is much
    better though. I was walking on the side of my foot because I didn't want to make it go in
    further. I'm so gla...

    If there is a community of farmers near you may be able to spend some time with them to get
    some experience and they may let you put a couple of hives on the edge of their property. Since
    I got into b...
