Don't get me wrong, Fuggles is probably the most versatile hops for any UK beer and I love 'em. I've just found that after doing this red recipe 3 or 4 times, that NB really stands up better. Again,...

I usually buy at least a pound or two more of what base malt/extract and a pound or two of extra dextrose. Had to bump up the post boil gravity by a few points on a recent beer and I made a mini beer...

I would consider omitting the roasted barley and upping the CaraRed and CaraMunich evenly to adjust for it. I used 4oz of roasted barley in my red and it's more to the Southern Brown profile than...

I'm with the others who said the bittering hops is a little (ok a LOT) over the top. I'd definitely consider omitting the first Galaxy addition if nothing else.

Now's a good time to get an Octoberfest going. I've got at least 3 more beers on the brewing deck, but I'm thinking about subbing out the planned Belgium Pale for a peanut butter porter.

I used a combination of S-04 and WLP004 for my Ryerish Red. Long story short - I didn't have enough time to make a starter and my OG was over the WLP004 threshold, so I also pitched a half pack of...

I did 1 tab on my last dry hopped beer and it was mostly clear, so I wanted to see if 2 would bring out similar results with the PtE. I didn't have high hopes and it really doesn't matter to me. I've...

Here's the way I think in regards to clear beer. If the beer tastes as good as I intended and the brew day was successful (i.e. uneventful), then clear beer is simply an added bonus. HOWEVER, if the...

They're already bottled and in storage. I'd hate to uncap them all potentially introduce something worse than it already is. Can you think of something I can blend it with (in the glass) that might...

Swamp Water Mead

Back in December my neighbor brought me 9lbs of honey that came from the AL gulf coast (Mobile area). I have never seen honey this dark and create crystals so quickly. I swear it looked like a porter...

I'm so lucky that we have a local brewery that will sell bulk grain to homebrewers. I can pick up a sack of 2 row for $35 and a sack of MO for $45 (and yeast is free). They will also sell us bulk...

New Hops

I went crazy one day and bought several pounds of hops that I've never tried. I have an idea for a "tropical" IPA using Madarina Bavaria and Huell Melon as the late additions and dry hop. Has anyone...

Forgive me for not reading through all 33 pages but has anyone subbed MO as the base malt? I still have a fair bit of it left and would rather not add more to my inventory as storage space is at a...

Dark honey

I have about 9lbs of a very dark and sweet honey. It is NOT buckwheat, but rather a wild flower varietal from the gulf coast. It smells a little like liquid malt extract, but the flavor is very sweet...

You're living on the edge man. I won't even let someone in my garage when I'm brewing if they don't have closed-toe shoes on. I'm the perfect example of how important it is.

Do you carry a full...
