    Tim's Blue Ribbon- A Crash Course in Brewing Lager

    I hear you on that Zacster. I have "sampled" my way through many a keg to get 1 full pint of delicious lager.

    Specialty IPA: Red IPA India Red Ale

    Finally got this one back into the brew schedule for a second time. I did the original recipe. Brew day went well so I'm expecting it will be as good or better than I remember. Thanks again for the recipe!! Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Specialty IPA: Red IPA India Red Ale

    Finally got this beer in the keg. This beer is soooo good!! if you are on the fence or have it on the schedule to brew later, you have to brew it now. This is one of the beers I have brewed that I would take over almost any commercial red/IRA beer I've tried (and i live in Portland, OR, home of...

    Specialty IPA: Red IPA India Red Ale

    I finally brewed this up and so far so good. Smells great even so early in the game. I'm 10 days in. I just threw in the dry hops today. I did an OZ each of Simcoe, Amarillo and some homegrown Centennial instead of Cascade. I can't wait for this one. Perfect time of year for this style too...

    Two Tier Brew Rig Build!

    I know this is a crusty old thread, but I like your system! Are you still brewing on it? I'm thinking of putting together something similar and wondered if you have ever felt the need for a grant? I have seen some guys with the same/similar set up and I don't think Ive seen anyone address...

    Jamil's West Coast Blaster

    I made this recently and have to say I havent been this happy with a beer I've made in a long while. This beer is along the same lines as Bear Republic's Red Rocket or maybe a slightly less malty True Believer from Ninkasi. Its delicious! If you are remotely considering making this beer, do it...

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    Don't worry. It's probably just "green." I've done this recipe a couple times and have gotten a funky odor too. Not sure if it's the Nottingham yeast...It only lasted for a little bit and then fades away.

    Brew All Grain RIMS System

    Hmmm... There are other threads on this forum and others that have RIMS plans for free. That being said, I don't think they give explicit info on where to get the parts or give close price estimates. That would be helpful. I'm not a tech savvy person so I would need plans to be idiot proof for...

    Brew All Grain RIMS System

    Apparently this is not the most popular thread...I just stumbled on their website. Looks really cool but I cannot find any reviews. Anyone using this thing?
