Yeah, one thing I really keep meaning to do is brew another Belgian ale, put it in bottles, and forget about it for a while. Those definitely age the best.

Wow, it's already been four years? My first son was born the day after my last post on this, so I haven't brewed as much as I used to.

I also almost exclusively keg now, so I don't have a big...

Ugh no one likes to hear a tale of woe like that. It's worse that it was sooo close to being drinkable too. I've had a 100% failure mishap at the very beginning, when I was boiling wort, but not in...

White Labs WLP013 London Ale really stinks

I made a couple starters tonight, one with WLP013 London Ale. It was a bit chunky and cottage cheesy looking, and it smelled a bit sour. I haven't brewed in a long time, but I used to use WLP013...

Glad to see so many others going for it on Friday. I also have no interest in descending into the madness of the crowds. We have throttled back on our initial enthusiasm a bit and are only doing a...

Who's brewing on Black Friday?

After a massive hiatus, I'm dusting off my equipment and getting ready to go out all on a ridiculous TRIPLE brewing day this Friday. I'll be doing a porter, an imperial IPA, and a Christmas wheat...

I bought some powder peanut butter and plan to try brewing this again with it, hopefully early 2014.

Three weeks will probably be long enough to get it mostly de-oiled. Something else to try is to skim the oil off during the boil, because it wants to float on the water. Just ease the heat back a...

This entire thing is a humiliating fiasco. I hesitate to even fully explain what happened, but, it's kinda funny, and maybe someone else will learn from my mistakes.

Wow, hadn't looked at this thread in ages. The beer was actually pretty good. It ended up having a "flaw", diacetyl, which gave it a butterscotch flavor. The funny thing is, that flavor actually...

Yeah, that's what I thought at first, but when I turned it around, it didn't seem to want to engage at all, like the other end was too short to reach the post. I might try that again just to be sure...

Ball lock hose connector missing a piece?

I just kegged two brews! Before I did, I took a part the beer side ball lock connectors to clean them, and I think I heard a piece fall out when I disassembled one. I couldn't find anything, so I...

I have been using this same burner for about four years now, on and off, mostly off lately. I was going to just buy a new piece, but I'll give your re-pressurization suggestion a try first.

How about a wheat beer with a Belgian yeast? Slightly exotic, but should be easy drinking.

Oh yeah, we did spin that every which way and try to get as much air in there as possible. It didn't seem to make any difference. I really do want to get this fixed or get a new line/regulator, if...

Well, the new tank didn't make much difference. I also blew it out with some compressed air but it was already pretty clean inside. I'm thinking it is a bad regulator now. I said screw it for now...

I filtered the grounds. I'm not 100% certain, but I think leaving them in could lead to unwanted bitterness. EDIT: Or maybe a burnt flavor, actually.

My mocha porter turned out pretty well, but I think I let it sit in the fermenter just a little too long, and it went a bit odd. It's good, but the aftertaste is a touch off.
