    Airlock / De-gas question

    So I plan on racking my mead into secondary in a few weeks and then bulk aging. My question i guess is the same for mead as it is my wines that are currently bulk aging. I want to get all the gas out so when i bottle there is no fizz. Ive heard 6 months to a year in the carboy should do this...

    Florida Brewpubs

    Red Light Red Light is hands down the best beer bar in orlando. Their new location has 20 taps, 2 beer engines and is dirt cheap. I honestly dont understand how they can make money. They sell 750 Belgians for $2 or $3 above retail. DFH 90min is $3 on tap for example. Its a GREAT place...

    Dogfish Head 90 or 120 min clone?

    We get it here pretty regularly for $10 a bottle. Also its served at my local beer bar for $14. Its an amazing beer and one that takes a while to drink. I think its worth every penny considering the level of intoxication you will receive from it along with the "glamor" of drinking such a high...

    Dogfish Head 90 or 120 min clone?

    Not only are the recipes out there for 120 minute complex (involving added syrups to achieve desired O.G) but they will set you back about $100 for a 5g batch. I would go for the 90

    Planning a Beer Tasting Night

    I've had 4 beer tastings at my place. I require everyone bring a 6 pack of commercial craft brew with a list of EXCLUDED BMC type beers. I print up a numbered sheet and assign each beer a number. After we taste each beer we give it a 1, 2 or 3 rating. End of the night whomever's beer had the...

    Pale malt addition to Belgian Blonde?

    Thats good.. After reading a bit more I am afraid I had seriously altered the flavor of this blonde by using Pale Malt. I took a lot of time brewing this baby so I dont want to mess her up.
