    How legal is underage homebrew?

    I am 15 I don't know why my profile says I'm a twenty something woman but I'm not. It started when we had a lot of plums my mom wanted to get rid of the plums so we made wine. Then I had an empty fermenter so we made beer. I get the recipes and pay for half the ingredients but if a cop asks I...

    I want to use yeast rather than priming sugar for bottling

    I think you will have a hard time getting the timing right. Cool too early you get bottle bombs cool too late there might not be enough sugar or you will have to wait a long time. What's wrong with the standard method?

    Creating yeast strains

    This is the exact conclusion I came to earlier today! I think I could take some white labs super high gravity yeast which can take up to 25% alcohol pitch it in 15% alcohol repropagate, pitch into 20% repropagate 25% etc... As far as lab equipment goes my other hobby is chemistry so I have...

    Creating yeast strains

    There are many different strains of yeast available some produce more alcohol others less, some produce esters and others do not. How can a homebrewer go about creating a strain of yeast unique from a store bought strain? If I wanted a super yeast like the one used to brew utopias could I...

    Fermenation time for big beers

    1.115 is leaning to imperial stout status. I would suggest 3-4 weeks in primary, 3-4 weeks in secondary and 6-8 weeks in a bottle. A beer that big takes a while to ferment, age and mellow.

    Fruit beer of doom

    Interesting, beer that makes you angry. Except for the bouts of rage does it taste good? That sounds like a lot of citrus.

    New labels

    Hopped Malt

    I have never done an extract batch. The reason for this was I felt it was premade, like kool aid all I had to do was mix with water heat it an boil it. All grain brewing is easier than you think. I use a plastic bucket as a primary.
