Hi everyone, long time no see.

I recently did my first all-grain batch, a belgian strong ale, and it was a tremendous success. In fact, a bit too much so. We got an original gravity of 1.103,...

I haven't been on in a while (I need to change my signature so it doesn't say this hasn't happened yet), but the brewoff was a huge, huge success. We brewed at my friend's house, and he has two...

Grandpa's woodshed apple smoked porter

I posted a thread recently about my first bad beer, but I wanted to post something about a truly fantastic beer I brewed. I would encourage people to try something like it. I smoked three pounds of...

Thanks for the input. We used actual chocolate, and some chocolate malt, but not a ton of either. I think we used 10 oz. of unsweetened chocolate, and maybe 4 oz. of chocolate malt. We sanitize...

First bad beer

Well, it finally happened. We brewed a bad beer. Some have been not so great, but this one is bad. It was supposed to be a chocolate porter, and we did it pretty much the same as the ginger...

Flip top bottles-can you reseal?

I couldn't really figure out how to title this thread, but if you have flip-top bottles, Grolsch style, and you open a beer, but then recap it, how long will it stay good? My instinct says not long,...

I don't think you can harm a beer by leaving it in secondary too long. It just clears out better. The yeast will stop working when it runs out of food and will slowly settle to the bottom, but I...

Johnny Depp--Even when he does a bad movie he does it HIS way. Never the same performance twice.

Meryl Streep--An obvious choice, but extremely talented nonetheless.

I've never had a hangover from HB, but it's because I've never gotten drunk off of it alone. One night though I had three Humble Pie Imperial Stouts (7.5% ABV) and two Seamus's (3.5% ABV) before...

Cheap all-grain equipment

Ok, so we've decided to go all grain. I know we'll need some kind of propane burner, a large pot, possibly with the capacity to lauter as well as mash, and a wort chiller. I've read a lot about...

Ferret, I've got a heavy schedule of brews ahead of me, but I think I might brew this sometime in next winter to have it ready for spring. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I actually have brew plans...

One thing that I've noticed that I don't like about pellets is that they jam up my strainer. The little tiny bits of shredded hops get into the little tiny holes, and it takes forever to strain it...

Hmmm.... I just did that search myself, didn't find much useful info. But as far as I'm concerned, no real benefit. Again, just one man's opinion, but it's been tried, and it seems to play out.
