I've rediscovered the joys of extract brewing since my daughter came along. She usually takes three hour naps, so I can get a batch into the fermenter while she's down (assuming I do some sanitizing...

I'd say Willamette is a little earthier and spicier than EKGs and pretty similar to Fuggle.

Honestly though, I have a habit of doubling up a Fuggle style hop and a Golding any time I'm brewing...

Five gallons in the fermenter after a near-perfect brew day.

This was the first time I had used Amarillo or Simcoe, and I kept sniffing the hops. The tropical fruit aromas are amazing! I can't...

So after my first decoction mash I've got a question... how the heck do you keep temps consistent with your plan?

Yup, I think a fan is in my future... just as soon as my beer thaws out and I clean out all the beer snow.

Froze my keezer -- probe location matters!

So I built a keezer last summer, and I'm still tweaking things. My temperature probe has been sitting on the hump, and with a noninsulated wooden collar on top there's a pretty significant temp...

I still do both, it's mostly a matter of how much time I have. AG usually takes me about 1.5-2 hours more than an extract batch, and that can be enough for me to not have time to brew. I can...

Lager fermentation in water bath

Hey all,
