    Big wave golden ale?

    Nobody... Nothing? I am on the hunt for this one as well. I'd prefer an extract but am open to whatever at this point.

    Kona big wave golden ale

    I am looking for the same. Preferablly and extract. I drank this the whole time we were in Hawaii 4 years ago and got hooked. It just finally showed up at one of the local stores for $8 / 6pack. It is good, but not $8/6pack good :)

    Latest Brew... Big Double IPA

    OK I dry hopped this again last Saturday with 1oz of Simcoe and 1 oz of Amarillo. Dropped the temp down to 35 last night to cold crash and will be bottling this over the weekend. The aroma is fantastically hoppy, I hope it is maintained through bottle conditioning and I can't wait to taste...

    A good Fermenting Temp Schedule for a Kolsch?

    I brewed my first Kolsch two weeks ago and was planning to rack to a secondary this weekend, and start the cold crash/lagering late next week. How does one determine "as much time as it needs in the primary". I have heard that at times the Krausen will not drop with a Kolsch, so what am I...

    Latest Brew... Big Double IPA

    Actually after doing a little more reading, I am second guessing myself. I brewed this on 04/28 so it has been fermenting 3 weeks. I dry hopped in my primary and racked to a secondary about 10 days in. From the reading I have done today I am thinking that I may have lost some of the dry hop...

    Latest Brew... Big Double IPA

    Thanks for all the feedback on this. I racked this to a secondary mid-week last week and was sitting just slightly above the specified 1.020 FG. I am planning to cold crash and bottle this weekend. I will let everyone know how it is looking at that time. I will definitely take the advice on...

    Caramel Apple Hard Cider

    I just wanted to let Mike know (as most others have) that I have received RAVING reviews on this cider! "It tastes like I am drinking apple pie" was probably the most original... I let this thing ferment all the way down to 1.000 then back sweetend with 2 cans of AJC and the caramel. I was...

    Magic Hat #9

    I have been drinking this for a few weeks now and it is pretty darn good and is definitely reflective of the flavor of a #9. From the first bottle I felt like there was some kind of an "off" aftertaste but couldn't really put my finger on it, so I did a side by side tasting with Magic Hat's #9...

    Bottle Carbing Question

    not sure if this is the right forum or if it should go in the cider forum, but I have a general question about carbing. Do larger bottles carb at a different rate than smaller bottles? I bottled a cider last weekend that had numerous posts about bottle bombs if it is not pasturized at the...

    Latest Brew... Big Double IPA

    I guess starter is not the proper term. After I mixed in all of my extracts, I pulled a few cups of wort out, cooled it in a sealed container and added the yeast while the boil was underway.

    Caramel Apple Hard Cider

    That being said has anyone tried the oven pasturing technique in lieu of stovetop?

    Getting ready for my 3rd Extract (need recomendations)

    Here is what I went with I went with. I started another fourm to update on staus https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/latest-brew-big-double-ipa-408206/ OG: 1.086 (I got a reading of 1.082, but that was likely due to not being fully mixed at the time of the sample) FG: 1.020 Alcohol: 8.5%...

    Latest Brew... Big Double IPA

    I don't know when I will stop posting to the beginners forum, but I still feel like a novice so here it is. Yesterday, I started my 3rd brew (4th if you count my cider) and it was a Big Double IPA recipe from one of my local Homebrew supply stores. The recipe is below, 10+ pounds of...

    Caramel Apple Hard Cider

    I bottled this past weekend (21 days from the start). I hit a FG of 1.000 give or take. Based on the feedback on this forum, I was a bit nervous about the cinamon and concentrate. I boiled the 2 tsp. of cinamon for a few minutes, then ran it through a fine strainer, then multiple coffee...

    So who's worked in their main electrical panel?

    OK those pictures are pretty horrific, but are not indicitave of every DIY electrical upgrade that has ever been done. I completely rewired our old house from the weatherhead (wires that touch the house from the street) through the meter to the main panel and on to every switch, receptical and...
