    ABOUT ME

  • Started with a Mr. Beer kit in college, after I made that, I waited a few years till I was in Grad School, and it all started with me going apple picking. Getting some unpasturized cider, October 2011. I then had made 11 cases of cider in 1 season, and I ramped up my beer brewing after that becuase I loved the taste of beer and I love cooking. As of 5/13/12 I have gone all grain, and I am not looking back

    IIPAs are normally dry-hopped, typically with 4-6 oz of hops. And IIPAs are typically better
    fresher. And I have noticed a significant deterioration of hops around 2-3 months after dry-hop

    According to the German Purity Laws Reinheitsgebot, it would not be considered a beer, but then
    again a lot of things would not be considered a beer. As to what you would call it: A fermented
    beverage

  • Posted in thread: Bigger boil???? on 02-13-2014 at 03:58 PM
    If you are doing extract, I typically only boiled 3. I ended up scorching the wort which gave
    it dark colors, however I was able to remedy that by adding the wort in the last 20 min. As far
    as getting...

    Blonde Ale? Its super easy to make/great starter beer, and its really nice and drinkable. You

    If you want something of Coors Lite, might I suggest a Blonde Ale... You will get more of the
    malty flavor with that, and I have found it to be very drinkable even by people who don't

  • Posted in thread: How long is Star San good for? on 02-13-2014 at 02:09 PM
    I have kept mine for a month, even two. The bottle says you can store it longer, as long as its
    covered/in a sealed container. I typically keep it in a spare corning keg or spare carboy. I
    also keep a...

    It looks pretty cool. To be honest, if you just use some PBW and fill it completely and leave
    it there for an hour or so... I don't think you will have to worry about seeing in there
    correctly. If you...
