Busy day all-grain...success!

So I have two small kids and my wife works opposite hours lots of days, so I'm finding it increasingly difficult to do full all-grain brew days. So last month, I fit a "brew day" in on a busy day. ...

Interesting thread. In my case, some of my bottle conditioned beers have a slight "plastic" taste, whereas my kegged beers taste premo. Sometimes I wonder if these tastes are all in my head as...

I'd be cold storing fermented beer and krausening with fermenting beer. The krausen batch would only be a 10 minute boil and should cool very quick due to the low volume. The 2 4 gallon batches...

So I'd like to have a couple of batches of nice IPA this summer, one in June and one in July...but I'm usually way too busy in the summer to do much brewing. So here's what I'm thinking of doing:

I guess for me, I don't brew beer just for beer, I brew to brew--if that makes any sense. Mixing extract in water skips the most foundational part of brewing, in my opinion. But hey, for each his...

First "No Sparge"...why haven't I done this before?

I was feeling extra lazy today, so I did a "no sparge" instead of my typical batch sparge. I've been leary of trying this because my mash tun is only 36 quarts. I had 11 lbs of grain and I filled...

Primary and age in the same barrel?

I watched Michael Jackson's Beer Hunter--Burgundies of Belgium--and if I understood him correctly, lambic brewers do primary and aging in the same barrel. Has anyone tried this?

Coopers Ale Yeast review

Decoction and hsa?

So I'm doing a decoction mash right now. For those worried about hot side aeration--how can you not be adding O2 with all of the stirring and transferring that takes place in decoction mashing?

One time I aerated my wort @ 200 degrees (dont ask why) and that batch never developed oxidation flavors-even after 7 months in the bottle. Since then, ive never worried about hsa.
