    Well, being the impatient person I am, I went ahead and just ordered one bag of Bairds
    Vienna(no Best Malz in stock), and one bag of Best Malz Pils, grand total of $73.27 for 110# of
    grain.:ban:Best o...

    Well she's chuggin' away now @ a burp every 3 secs. Moral of the story, aerate your wort
    properly, and do a starter, which I did not.

  • Posted in thread: Where to score kegs for keggles? on 07-09-2008 at 10:19 PM
    I scored three kegs from a micro brewery. They take kegs out of service regularily. Try and
    talk to the guys brewing, tell them you're a homebrewer looking to build an all grain rig. I
    lucked out and ...

    I liked the recipe so much, I though about purchasing more grain, enough for two batches, less
    the Chocolat malt and Carafa. I would mix it all up and vacuum pack 1/2 of it for a future
    batch. I wonde...

    I feel like I just raised the dead. I had what I believe was a stuck fermentation. I analyzed
    what I did. Cooled wort after boil w/ IC. OG was 1.069 adjusted for temp. Pitched lager yeast @
    70 degrees...

    I've brewed 3 all-grain batches, and am drinking the first one. Being able to craft such a
    complete beer is addicting! Like learningmore said, the biggest change for me was your time
    brewing will be a...

    I always take a hydro reading, I just got carried away and forgot to take one before I primed.
    The reading after I primed was 1.019. After digging around and checking my Beertools software,
    the primin...

    Brewed an all grain Weizen last week.(Bee Cave Weizen). Its been 8 days and fermentation
    stopped after the third day. EdWort's recipe calls for an F.G. of 1.009. Well, I had a brain
    fart and I primed ...
