I for one am glad that a premium 750ml bottle of beer is only $11 (for say a St. Bernardus Abt 12 which is easy to get anytime and A+ in my opinion) instead of some insane original amount, or even...

2.5 years on and there have been a few startups in our area, but a lot of places have gone out of business (and only very recently after struggling since the downturn three years ago) .

Thanks guys, that's good news. Just out of curiosity, why is any water at all dripping through the airlocks? They are the 3 piece kind, and its happening on both of them.

Is trub loss generally the same regardless of 1, 2.5, or 5 gallon batches? Will trub amount effect ABV or Gravity, since its actually a solid (or are you precalculating in beersmith to compensate...

As an example, she has an aversion to Sam Adams Boston Lager and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. It's the amount, and I think the type too. Cascade are a lot more aggressive than East Kent Goldings even...

Thanks guys. It sounds like if I actually weigh the DME, grains, hops, invert sugar, etc I'll be ok. I have a nice (but inexpensive) digital scale that does grams, oz, lbs, klgs up to 8 lbs as...

Is 1 LB (pound) always by weight or by measure?

Do you guys generally call one LB (of say DME or grain) 16 oz (in a measuring cup), or 1 actual pound of weight on your precision scale?

Through my reading it seems that Dubels have Special B crystal malt and carmelized invert (candi) sugars. Both of which are dark.

'Malted' barley is 34lbs, but I'm guessing TJ was using imperial measurements, so it may have been more. We'd have to ask an agricultural historian. If he's saying 8-10 gallons per bushel, let's...

Nice article on Thomas Jefferson (and wife) as brewers - late 18th/early 19th century

Which White labs yeast for Tripel or Belgian Strong?

I'm a bigger fan of Piraat and St. Bernardus than Chimay (although still love Chimay!!). Have any of you compared the different types of Trappist White Labs (I think there are 3)? TY
