    Has anyone ever made a Saison?

    Thank you for the advice. I got the recipe from a beer a day calender and followed it. It sounded good. Next time I can go more true to the style.

    Going to be giving my Vanilla porter its first run.

    Has anyone ever made a Saison?

    I brewed one on Jan 24 and just racked it to my secondary. Not too sure if I need the secondary, outside of the fact I do not have my bottles ready yet. Here's the recipe: 6.6 lbs light malt extract syrup 0.5 lbs dme 2.0 lbs light candy sugar 1.0 oz powdered ginger root 1.0 oz bitter...

    help. I just broke my only air lock.

    Fantastic response time gentlemen. You are all my heroes. I have been able to create a blow off tube. Just needed to get input from outside the disaster area!

    help. I just broke my only air lock.

    I am about 30 min into my boil and I broke my only air lock. Getting a new one is not possible and the only person I know to borrow from is not home. Any ideas on how to make one? I use the standard bucket for a primary.

    If a recipe calls for 3.3 lbs of LME, how much DME would you use in place of it?

    Bad Bottles?

    I boiled my caps! Man, what a rookie move. I popped one open and noticed that it the seal was shriveled. Thanks for the heads up!

    Bad Bottles?

    Forgive me if this topic has been done to death, but I did not have any luck when I searched the subject. I seem to be having carbonation issues with my last two batches of brew, a red ale and a stout. With the red I have some that are very carbonated and some that are not at all. I am...

    My amber ale finally finished

    Hey it looks fantastic. Great color and clarity. I bet it tastes every bit as good as it looks.

    The Smell Is Torture!

    Thanks. That is fantastic news. It means I will be drinking them in three weeks. My wife is thrilled! :mug:

    The Smell Is Torture!

    I was aware of the cloudy nature, but I thought it would need more time for the flavors to meld. Am I off base in my thinking? It had spent two weeks in the primary. Would that have been enough?

    The Smell Is Torture!

    I feel for ya. I am in luck as I have two brews to choose from at the moment.

    The Smell Is Torture!

    Brewing more is a fantastic idea. I really want to, but I have two little ones that I like to hang out with as well. I can't wait until they are off to college. JK LOL! Time seems to crawl waiting for your brew, but fly by when it comes to your kids.

    The Smell Is Torture!

    I just racked my Blue Moon-ish clone into my secondary and it smells fantastic. I am going to have a very hard time waiting for this one. This is the first brew I have made without a kit. I got a lot of help and ideas from the forum. Thanks! I really need to start writing down my recipes...
