  • Best friend got me into brewing. Currently using a fairly standard set up and have only done kit brews. 3 carboys, 1 fermentation bucket, 1 bottling bucket, various pieces of necessary brewing equipment - 20 qt stainless stockpot, hydrometer, thermometer, etc. Recently acquired a 10 gallon stock pot and turkey frier. Looking forward to doing my first all grain.

    @speedy2782 - It actually turned out really well. There was just a touch of honey and the
    additional grains gave it a bit more punch in terms of ABV. The additional hops provided, in my
    opinion, a mor...

  • Posted in thread: Any kit recomendations for a Scottish Wee Heavy Ale on 07-24-2010 at 09:04 PM has a good Scottish Wee Heavy. One key is to be patient. The yeast that
    shipped with this was the Nottingham and during the time that I brewed it was when everyone was
    having proble...

    I've noticed that using Safale S-33 and Danstar Nottingham dry yeasts impart an "earthy" flavor
    to the beers that I've used them in. It's to the point where I am considering using US-05 in
    everything ...

    @Revvy - I really appreciate your post and I understand completely what you're saying. That was
    kind of my point with this thread. At bottling time... we're dealing with alcohol at a minimum
    of 3% by ...

  • Posted in thread: Question about Infections & Bottling on 06-28-2010 at 12:20 AM
    This may seem like a dumb question, but I've been thinking about this and I'm curious: What
    types of infections are possible at bottling time? Consider this: If we're dealing with beer at
    the time we'...

    This may seem like a dumb question, but are you getting your temp (below 30) without a Johnson
    controller? If so, do you actually need one? I ask because I have a larger (40" tall or so)
    dorm size fri...

    Interesting... however, I did aerate the wort for about 40 minutes before pitching. I've
    noticed that if I get good aeration, I tend to get more vigorous fermentation at the beginning.
    And, believe it...

    Thanks for the replies, gentlemen. The vote is don't water it down and so it shall be.The
    fermentation has slowed down finally and it looks like I have 4 gallons of fermenting wort.
    Room temp is just ...

    Brewed Northernbrewer's Imperial Stout on Monday night. Woke up this morning and went to take a
    look and unbelievably, the blow-off tube had... blown off. Fortunately, not a huge mess, just
    kind of a ...
