The brewery in Newport (the actual brewery, not the bay front restaurant) is pretty good. It
gives me a chance to try their beers that I normally wouldn't see in stores, and their samplers
allow me to...
Posted in thread: What 3 things have you done since you started brewing, to make better beer? on 10-30-2012 at 09:43 PM
1) fine tune my brewing process. 2) keep consistent temps while fermenting. 3) don't sweat the

identical, and made...

I'd go with a blow off tube. Even if you could've gotten away with it, it really isn't worth
the hassle of cleaning up krausen off your walls, floor, ceiling, everywhere. I do it for all
of my beers f...

It was like drinking liquid smoke. Was struggling through the whole thing. On a good note, it
