Nope. We keep the house about 72 degrees year-round. I have a seamless metal pan I put the bucket in, add water and an old t-shirt tightly secured to the bucket for a swamp cooler. Drops the temp...

Well, Brewsmith figured out a previously successful recipe using extract, and converting it to all grain, as basically a no-sparge brew-in-a-bag. Since extract brewing is essentially the same with...

Concentrated all grain wort boil?

I've done some all grain full volume batches, but kind of like the convenience of stovetop brew sessions using extract, mainly for the convenience of a rapid cool-down to low 70's to pitch yeast. I...

Just remove the pressure relief valve and put in an appropriately-sized drilled stopper and an airlock. Easy enough.

Heart's is convenient to me, to say the least, and for their size they've got a lot of stuff, but I'll admit they're not falling all over themselves to make you...

If that's the case, that's a relief. I bought the kit based on the reviews, and I've been struggling with finding a decent brown ale recipe. After some iffy results, I'm hoping this comes in good....

I figure the Coopers Stout is what it is, and I just don't like it. It's more drinkable than the brown ale.
The hops I got looked like they might have been a bit stale. Smelled good, but not as...

Do you ever dump beer just because of taste?

I've got a brown ale I brewed (extract) based on two other batches, with this one as a compromise between the two (one too mild, the other a bit too "roasty"). The one difference is I used so-called...

I said screw it and bumped the pressure up to 30 then go out and periodically shake it for a few minutes, listening for the gas. I'll do that all afternoon. I'm suffering from acute sobriety. I had...

I'm leaving it on because what other choice do I have? I've read comments about sugar priming in the keg vs forced carbonation, and figured since it helps to let it sit awhile anyway after kegging or...

Okay. Second batch kegged up. 1/2 cup of corn sugar in a cup of water in the bottom of the keg. Filled the keg to almost full, purged and sealed up tight with about 4 blasts of CO2, bled one last...

Well, it's in the keg at 45 degrees as of this morning. I'll leave it sit a few days. The glass I pulled and drank last night was absolutely clear. The first glass I pulled I tossed.
