    Cold Brew in Carboy

    I cold brewed about half a pound in about a quart of water. You need to let grounds settle and then add to taste

    What craft beer do you secretly despise?

    I still like them, but I enjoy other beers. I think as home brewers we look at the complexity of the taste and how it comes together. When we taste a beer, we notice things others don't. For example we went out to dinner last night and I had a choice of BMC or a Sam Adams IPA. I took the IPA. It...

    My beer will NOT carbonate - no matter what! Part2

    I use Yoops method. 30-35 psi. I taste at 24,36, 48 60 and if necessary 72 hours. Are you sure you have no leaks and are using co2 and Not beer gas? You could also Add priming sugar and let it sit at about 65-68 for a few weeks. Make sure you fill head space with co2 though not beer gas...

    Marris is going to change the character some. My beers have a bread taste when it use it
