I've made a similar strawberry blonde several times, and one time had a happy accident of forgetting the last hop addition. But when I'd open one or pour it from the keg, it smelled of fresh...

Ten gallons of trouble here! It's nice to see more people enjoying this recipe. I made teo batches, so I did one with champagne yeast and one with Montrachet to experiment. I'm thinking of...

I live 2 miles from the Michigan Brewing Company, and for what it is, it is a good beer, IMHO. On Monday, I can get a mixed case of their craft beers for $24 out the door. They have a wide...

You could bottle carb. But you can't bottle carb and back sweeten unless you use a non-fermentable sugar like lactose. Yeast are lactose intolerant, in a manner of speaking. If you don't kill the...

I routinely siphon hot wort onto onto bagged ice. I discussed it here once and people cried bloody murder. My theory is that we use bottled water all the time in brewing. Bacteria could end up on the...

We all think the worst when we're forced to break a cardinal rule. I have lamented over many batches that turned out fine.

Good to know. I let mine go for over a month, but it sounds like I didn't need to. It's quite interesting with a dash of cinnamon or even nutmeg in the glass before you pour.

I'm reasonably certain they are cascade. They smell like cascade to me, and my brew friends agree. Plus, homebrewers in Michigan grow cascade, and all I know about this guy is that he was growing...

I wouldn't over think the math on this. This is a backsweetened take-off from edwort's apfelwein (sp). Make more than you need, and drink the rest, whether it's backsweetened or carbed or neither,...

It will effect the flavor, but it will be fine. I went with champagne yeast just because that's what woodchuck uses.

Easy and cheap way to keep still wine on tap

i have a lot of lids that don't have a pressure relief valve, so I just keep my spare gas quick connect in the kegerator and use that as a pressure relief valve. It also won't fit on the liquid side.

Thanks for the advice all. I kegged it, but when I drew a sample, it hadn't cleared well. It was racked onto whole strawberries and watermelon juice, so I'm not sure it's just yeast. Should I wait...
