Sure, but I'm still pretty clueless at this point :)


I think I can make it work by insulating the pot, but we'll see how it goes. I also expect to get a propane burner sooner or later, but I'd...

That reminds me of when I was in Reykjavik in 1971. Everyone wanted to practice their English on me, and one guy asked, "You're from Canada? Do you know Frank Zappa?"

Well, it was funny at the...

I have an old-school electric stove. I figure that with insulation and possibly a supplementary 1500W heat stick, I'll be able to control boils well enough.


There are stainless pots on that...

Today I joined facebook just to hook up with SOB and get in on some purchases in the future. I'm just starting out, though, and it may be another week or two before I brew my first batch. (Probably...

I thought my google-fu was pretty good, but there are southern ontario grain suppliers listed here that I couldn't find online. Thanks, guys :)

BTW, I'm in Hamilton.

Hmm, now I've been reading this (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/improved-boiling-stovetop-53683/), and if I can brew on my electric stove, then I'll go with 5-gal batches from the start. The...

That's actually what I'm debating right now. Can I leave 2.5-gal of wort in a 6-gal carboy for 21 days? Once the fermentation stops, won't the large surface area on top invite oxidization?

I'm...

I ran across the Brew House website a little while back, and their kits do look pretty good. I'm tempted to start with some 2.5-gal extract batches, though, since I'm dying to try out some of the...

So do homebrewers ever filter their beer? I was thinking that the ubrew spoiled my beer not only by rushing it but by filtering it. Could it still improve in the bottle even if it was filtered?

That cost around $100 CAD before the bottles I bought. But remember that beer is expensive in Canada, it was actually a savings.

U-brew shortcuts

Just to see what's involved in brewing beer, I did a 10-gallon batch (Heineken clone) on-premises at my LHBS. It was interesting on brew day: they used a malt extract and added the hops in pellet...

Thanks for the recommendations. The Pilsner Urquell I'm very familiar with. I have to admit that the research I've been doing on beer has been very pleasurable so far :)

I lived near Hay River NWT in the 70's and we used to get the tail end of Chinooks around this time of year. It could warm up to 0C for you, but of course it won't last long.
