    Good Beer of the month club?

    Thanks for the advice everyone. She decided against the BOTM club and is instead sending him to a go-kart track to drink and drive fast :tank:.

    Good Beer of the month club?

    Cousins birthday is coming up and he is really starting to get into good beers. His girlfriend wants to get him a subscription to a beer of the month club so she asked me. And I have NO idea. Sure, I can google all the clubs. But it would be nice to get some personal experience.

    Using oak chips, chocolate, and vanilla for the first time

    I have .5 lb of chocolate malt in it, with another 2-3 oz (recipe calls for 2) of bittersweet ready to go in. I really think that its about done fermenting. It started hard and fast (11+ bubbles/10 seconds) so I decided to move it into my room and cool it off for a cleaner taste. At this point...

    Using oak chips, chocolate, and vanilla for the first time

    Really? Nobody has any advice? What about just the oak chips, I can figure out the chocolate and vanilla.

    Using oak chips, chocolate, and vanilla for the first time

    I am brewing a chocolate bourbon porter right now, been in the primary for 6 days so far and its doing good (.006 above what beersmith said the FG will be). Once it goes into the secondary I will be adding some vanilla bean, chocolate, and the chips, I have questions on each. The recipe called...

    Need help finding a good recipe for a bourbon beer

    Good to know. I am looking for the underlying bourbon flavors, not just bourbon liquor, in the beer.

    Need help finding a good recipe for a bourbon beer

    Thanks for your help. I would rather do the oak chips over just pouring in bourbon, I think the flavor will be more what I am looking for. I'll go to my LHBS on monday and see what he has available.

    Need help finding a good recipe for a bourbon beer

    I want to start on a good winter brew now. I want it to be something warm, heavy, and high alcohol (around 10%). I was thinking I would try a bourbon stout, maybe add a small hint of chocolate to it. But I dont know where to begin. I looked through the recipe database here, but everything was...

    Fruit Beer watermelon wheat

    I went to 21A with my cousin and had a glass of the HORHW. I liked it so much, I bought a 6 pack and brought it home. Cracked one open when I got home, and it tasted noticeably different.

    Fermentation in the secondary

    Just the way 21st amendment does it :D. Man, I wish I could have found a clone of hell or high watermelon from them.

    Fermentation in the secondary

    I've never brewed cider, I had no idea that fruit flavor was so delayed.

    Fermentation in the secondary

    Makes sense. I dont want to jump the gun and over-fruit it. Thanks for your help man :mug:

    Fermentation in the secondary

    I was under the impression that once it was racked, you left it alone. But I guess I dont see any reason I couldnt add more watermelon puree if I feel it needs it. I sure smelled and tasted good right after I racked it. I was able to get a decent idea of the final product because some CO2 stayed...

    Fermentation in the secondary

    I hope so. I didnt really taste any out of the primary with 2 or so cups in there. I am hoping another 3.5 cups will be enough. I am tempted to add another cup for good measure but I am more worried about too much watermelon than not enough.
