  • The Mrs. baught me a brewing kit for fathers day 2010. Brewers best American pale ale. After my first sip I knew I would love this hobby. I will eventually try all grain brewing but right now it only takes me aprrox. 3hrs to do a brewers best kit and my results have been very tasty. I have tried the Belgian triple that is just now getting very good. The IPA turned out real nice. Looking forward to many enjoyable HB's in the future.

    My pineapple IPA turned out much too carbonated. I even reduced the amount of priming sugar
    used.(Should have used no priming sugar at all.) The taste was decent but a little too acidic
    for my taste. ...

    I sometimes forget to kiss my wife goodnight but I never forget to kiss my dog. P.S. I never

    Looks like a normal fermentation to me as well. Good job.

    Yes I did adjust the amount of priming sugar used according to the pineapple label sugar
    content. I was worried about bottle bombs for sure. I love to add flavors to my bottling
    bucket. I've done it w...

    I just finished bottling 2 1/2 gallons of a pineapple IPA. I brewed a citrusy IPA and on
    bottling day I split the batch in half. I purchased some frozen pineapple juice concentrate and
    added 2 cups of...

    I used this yeast in an American pale ale and it took 60 hours to get any activity.Once it
    started it really took off though. Not sure I'll use it again though. Don't really like the
    slow lag time.

  • Posted in thread: Can you recommend a nice simple recipe with what i have on 02-14-2014 at 12:51 AM
    Citra hops are awesome! I have dry hopped by just pouring the hops into my beer in the
    secondary and then letting them sit for however long you like. When it comes time to bottle I
    just siphoned out t...

  • Posted in thread: Would you rather primary for 7 days, then secondary for 2-3 weeks OR...? on 02-10-2014 at 07:09 PM
    I have had good luck with 7 days in my primary and then 7 days in my secondary . I will let my
    beer stay in the secondary longer if I'm trying to pick up some flavors like oak or some kind
    of fruit.
