Dark honey

I have about 9lbs of a very dark and sweet honey. It is NOT buckwheat, but rather a wild flower varietal from the gulf coast. It smells a little like liquid malt extract, but the flavor is very sweet...

Not sure about mead or wine, but in beer, a little StarSan can actually provide a little boost for your yeasties. Hard to explain, but it essentially sanitizes some of the beer or krausen which the...

You're living on the edge man. I won't even let someone in my garage when I'm brewing if they don't have closed-toe shoes on. I'm the perfect example of how important it is.

Do you carry a full...

I believe you are spot on in that I need to reevaluate my process. I've gone over some of the more frustrating....ok maddening parts of the last brew days and 90% of it comes from me rushing to get...

No worries. I take every criticism constructively (or try to anyway). I've had this happen several times with this keg and the last time it happened it was due to hop residue and yeast clogging the...

Thankfully I have my brewclub behind telling me to get back on that horse (as well as you guys), so I think I'll stay in the game. The beer always turns out great and I should take pride in that I...

Update - The keg decided to be a little b*tch with the stout and won't hold pressure or force beer out the line. I didn't have the time or the patience to deal with it last night, so I'll get after...

The stout tastes great but only yielded about 4 gallons in the end. The mild is for my bro who lives about 400mi away. I might keep a few bottles, but I suspect he's taking the bulk. To be honest, I...

I think I will be investing in some rubber brew gloves and boots. Might as well buy a lab coat, a respirator, and some goggles too. I do have a reputation for being a homebrew mad scientist. I'm...

I forgot to mention that the metal skewer went flying into the fermentor at the very end while the wort was transferring from the kettle to the bucket. Yeah, it was less than sanitized. I'm thinking...

The last 2 batches I've done, I did as favors to friends and/or family and each brew day was filled with frustration and disaster of epic proportions. Now, I've been making beer for quite a while and...

He said under 3% was acceptable. I'm not boiling off the alcohol. Just seems sooooo wrong.

Near Beer

So my bro isn't allowed to imbibe but loves beer and has asked me to if I can do a near beer for him. I was thinking a bitter and mash low. Suggestions are welcome.

"Sorry guys. The keg just won't carb up and I don't think you want to drink flat beer do you?"

It's not a lie and you get to hog the beer. Win/win in my book.

I usually stick with the split and soak method (bourbon). I'm going to try the JD Honey Bourbon the next time I do it and dump it all in the bucket. Anyone else thirsty now?
