  • I have always loved drinking beer, the flavors are amazing. When i got into college ( I went a Christian college where drinking was forbidden but they never said anything about brewing), my roommate and I started started making mead in the basement of our college. It wasn't long before we bought our first beer making kit and ingredients. Since then, I've upgraded, graduated college, got married, and started my career in education but still making beer.

    Hey team, I'll be heading to Dallas for Thanksgiving this year and have been asked by family to

    So I'm taking some root beer to a fourth of July part where some of the kids are allergic to

  • Posted in thread: Imperial Stout: Too long in secondary?? on 06-11-2010 at 10:52 PM
    I had an imperial stout in the secondary for about 7 months. When I bottled, there was quite a
    bit of trub on the bottom of the carboy but I figured there was still enough yeast for it to

    distribution of p...

    Okay, I'm sure someone in this monstrous thread has already asked this question but I couldn't

    I've heard the argument that it resuspends the yeast and gives it more opportunity to ferment.
    I know what you're saying though, I'm just wondering the benefits or negatives.

  • Posted in thread: Shake the Fermenter on 05-11-2009 at 05:56 PM
    I know people have posted about this in the past but is it alright to give your Primary
    Fermenter a little shake every once and a while? I'm not talking about picking it up and
    shaking it vigorously, ...
