    First cones of the season already!

    I have a Cenntenial and a Magnum that both have hops buds like that on them and a golding that has some smaller ones on it as well here in Kansas. I am kind of hoping to get a double batch out of them this year. They are all second year plants.

    Is it to early for a lot of buds?

    I have 3 different hops plants that are all in their second year. They are growing great but are already all loaded with hops. I know that harvest is usually not till late August to sept. So my question, is it possible that I will get an early harvest??

    Irish Red Ale St Fuad's Irish Red

    I brewed this recipe with just one change. When I went to brew I found that I only had 6 # of Vienna Malt America on hand so ended up using that and 5 # of 2 row. It turned out great and I can not wait to brew this with all Vienna. Thanks for the Recipe.:rockin:

    I hate choices, need advise

    Ok, after much deliberating on this mater I went to the LHBS and bought some sorbate. I decided to keg anyway (that was the original plan before SWMBO stepped in) and just get a travel CO2 catridge for the LHBS to take along. This will allow me to sweeten it to her hearts desire and still take...

    I hate choices, need advise

    OG was 1.056. It is currently pretty clear but can still see some clouding. As for the cartridges, I have thought of that but have the bottles on hand, but still an option. DAMN one more choice.

    I hate choices, need advise

    Hey all, this is my first cider and so far all has gone well, It taste great to me but a bit to dry for SWMBO. I started this the weekend before christmas using Nottingham yeast, racked it to secondary middle of January and have let it sit since. For the last 2 weeks it has sat at a reading of...

    First Partial Grain

    This is the first beer that I ever home brewed and it was a partial grain stout. Very tasty if I do say so myself :mug: . I have two more brewing now and one on deck. I am addicted completely now.

    Pretty excited...

    The beer looks great SK. I have to say this is truely an addiction. I had a buddy that had a Mr. Beer kit and made a batch that I thought was pretty good but I thought " I can do better".
