I always think that a stout is a great first brew. Roasty flavors mask some first timer mistakes and the dark color hides cloudiness (no clearity concerns). I love reds too, but those attempts...

www.stpats.com. The 9" are $25 a pop. They were very fast getting them to me, and use UPS. As a UPS guy, that's a big plus.

3/4" Stainless Coupler

My wife says that I can be long winded, so I appologize in advance.

One of my co-workers told me how much he enjoyed a sixer of Mirror Pond recently. I told him that if he liked that beer, he really should try the Bridgeport IPA. It's been about a week. I haven't...

I've got to say that I've tried the mash hop technique and concluded that it was a waste of perfectly good hops. Granted, my palate is not trained as well as a certified beer judge's, but I know a...

I don't sweat the trub. You'll leave it behind in the primary when you transfer to secondary. Some people say that some components of the trub are essential for the yeast.

Let that beer sit a while. I know exactly how you feel, anxious to taste the fruits of your labor. Heck, I usually have 1/2 of a batch on tap before week 3. But bottle conditioning takes time. ...

I mill every malted grain that goes into my mash. I was a little surprised when a shop owner told me that he does not mill his wheat or rye, instead puts them uncracked in his mash. Has anyone...

Auburn is roughly between Sacramento and Tahoe on I 80. It's nice here. Still has the small town feel, at least for now. Seems that is disappearing in most places, propably coming here next.
