Austin Homebrew will sell by the ounce if you want, and put your entire grain bill in one bag, if you want.

I prefer Ayinger, Wiehenstephaner, and Paulaner. Sam Adams last year was really sweet. This year it's much better.

Yup. Filter and force-carb in a keg. If you bottle condition you'll wind up with at least a little sediment.

It'll go in any kind of German ale or lager, most Belgians. You can even use it in virtually any beer that doesn't call for much hop aroma. Like stouts, porters, reds, whatever you like. Hell, a...

I have dogs. Hops and dogs don't mix. Leaf hops get little bits everywhere and I have to spend ages cleaning it all up. Pellets are better for me.

Hallertauer hersbrucker has been my go-to for a while. I think I could be totally happy just buying Hallertau, Magnum, and Fuggles.

I wouldn't mind a plate chiller and a chest freezer. Or a stir plate. But I already upgraded my kettle and burner, so I'm good for this year.

Stout Kettles. I just got a 15-gallon. Pricey? Yes. But the build quality is incredible. You'll never buy another unless you just need to go bigger.

100% here. One batch had a bit more sediment in the bottle than usual, one somewhat overcarbed, and one that I nailed the style I was aiming for, I just wound up not liking it very much 5gallons...

I've got Maris Otter and Vienna. With a bit of roasted barley, black malt, or 60L I can do most of the brews I want to. If I need anything else I'll pick it up per-batch.

Thinking about an Oatmeal Stout (primed with maple syrup). Then a Westvleteren clone. And then another batch of Oktoberfest. Maybe two batches - I love that stuff.

Heh. Nothing, I suppose. Honestly though, I'll wait to see the analysis. They've apparently got a really new softener that's supposed to be very salt-efficient. If the result is too sodium-rich I'll...

And I checked, there's no cutoff valve before the softener. I guess my dad figured he wanted soft water to wash his cars. The funny part is the city water...

Ok, so for the next two weeks I'm in a tiny place since my wife is doing some post-grad work in Chicago. Which means I'm migrating my brewing activity over to my parents' house, where there's loads...

My best so far is the Oktoberfest I made last March. Creatively lagered by moving the fermenter around my garage. Finally opened a bottle around the same time they were tapping the kegs in Munich.

For vanilla I would use bourbon, not vodka. Bourbon already has a lot of vanilla flavor notes, so you get more bang for your buck than with vodka.

If you have a local Penzeys (or other spice shop) you can get whole dried ginger root that you can grate with a microplane. Otherwise I'd say use about a one-inch cube of fresh and chop it finely....
