hey all, ever wanted to see your name in a brew book? I plan on adding a Tips,tricks and Advice Section to My up coming book, i have many tips myself but i don't feel that i have enough to justify adding a chapter.This is where all of you can get the chance to share your Best Tips, Tricks and Advice on brewing! If you would like to see your name in the Book, and share your tips here is the format i would like you to use.This is to make sure you can get credit for your tip.


(Your First Name and Last Initial here)
(your City and State here)
(your tip here)

So it would look like this if i were to do it.

Always Re-hydrate Dry Yeast, Do this by Boiling 2 cups of water,then cool it to around 80 degrees, Sprinkle your dry yeast on top, and let it set. When it has all sunk to the bottom gently stir and your yeast is re-hydrated and ready to Pitch.

So lets see all those tips! If you don't feel comfortable posting it in this thread feel free to Email it to me at [email protected]

I'll add one when I can think of it, but you may want to do a search for this kind of thing. I've seen a few threads about your favorite tips and tricks pop up in the couple of years I've been here.

I would do that but this way is easier to make sure that everyone who does share a tip gets recognized in the book, hence why i went with the formatting i listed above.But i know what you mean. I just don't want to make anyone feel like they are not being properly credited for their input! Also this prevents legal issues from using someones tip without permission because if they post their tip they must want to share it in the book.

As a relatively new brewer, I can offer a couple that I learned very quickly.

When you buy your first homebrew equipment kit, buy a wort chiller. Not only will it significantly cut time off your brew day, the clarity benefits of a good cold break are undeniable.

Join a homebrew club. The advice of others and the opportunity to brew with experienced brewers are worth the membership dues.

Enter your beers in a BJCP sanctioned competition. I was talked into entering four beers (the first four I'd ever brewed) in a large local competition. My American Brown won gold in the style! That's one hell of a motivator. The other three didn't do so well, but I received impartial notes from BJCP certified judges that have improved my beers since.

Avoid Boil Overs. Keep a spray bottle of water next to your brew kettle on brew day. If the wort starts to foam up, give it a few sprays from the bottle to prevent a boil over... then turn down the heat a bit!
