Just did the survey. Will be brewing this weekend for a friend's upcoming party in July, instead of going to the conference.

What I did for beer today

Cleaned taps and lines. Tapped an Irish stout and checked gravity on my ESB. Gravity and flavor is good on the ESB. Should be able to get it in the keg tomorrow.

The Morebeer single hop kit beers come with a bittering charge of magnum I believe and then feature the "experiment" hop as a late addition(s)

This was an extract beer. I steeped in RO water with a tsp each of CaCl and gypsum. I'm figuring my problem came from the fact that I got a lot of husk material in the steep, then boiled it with the...

Tannic - Does it age?

I am usually an AG brewer. But recently I wanted to try something Jamil Z. had suggested. His contention is that all other things being equal, you can still make an extract beer equaling the quality...

I've tried 005, but on a bitter, not the brown. I like 013 for darker beers, 002 for hoppier/copper/amber stuff. I switch from 002 to 007 if I want something that ferments drier
