  • I feel in love with beer when I was 20 years old. Of course I had consumed what many call beer before then, but it was at this time that I traveled to London to visit my girlfriend studying abroad.

    On the flight I chatted with a nice fellow from London who told me about English "bitters" which were served warm and flat. I was less than enthralled.

    Once there, I decided to check out the pubs. Besides the good eats and great atmosphere, I realized that they pumped their beer (cool!) and it was in humungo glasses! After about a week of downing whatever I pointed at, I discovered the delicious concoctions were, in fact, bitters, special bitters, esb's and so forth!

    This made me try to seek out this exact type of beer when I went back to school in Philadelphia (with little success), but in the process I grew to love all types of beer.

    Be careful, a friend of mine was teaching in Korea and she broke one of their unwritten rules
    and was kicked out of the country 2 days later. I don't remember exactly what she did, but I
    think it was ...

    Hah, unfortunately I don't know how to distill liquor and don't really have much of a desire
    to. I mean, I like it with samgyeopsal and whatnot, but I wouldn't waste my time making that
    stuff either.A...

    I have the newest edition of the book as well. The class is going to be Korean female English
    teachers. I'm looking more for something pretty and eyecatching as they don't know anything at
    all about b...

    So I'm an English teacher in Korea and I have a class with Korean adults coming up. I decided
    to share my passion and let them brew with me. In the downtime I am going to let them watch

    Currently having a similar problem with WLP001 and fermented at 60F (though I pitched at higher
    temps). 12 days in, I'll let you know how it is in another week...

  • Posted in thread: My WLP001 tastes like a Belgian. What happened?!? on 07-09-2010 at 12:04 AM
    Yeah, there are too many factors. I actually stopped harvesting my yeast because I wanted to be
    100% happy with what I was brewing before reusing. I also stopped using WLP001 for the most
    part and jus...

    A glass thermometer right next to the side of the carboy, or even touching the carboy is
    absolutely no indication of what the temperature is inside. I really think the fermentation
    kicked off before t...

    Hmm, interesting that US05 did that all at assumably low temps. Do you remember what you
    fermented at with that batch of US05? I am fairly sure this is WLP001 since it was from washed
    yeast from my la...

    I have a glass thermometer right next to the carboy. You very well maybe be right about the
    temp not dropping that fast, but within 48 hours no more water was leaking in from the airlock
    either.Let's ...
