    Growing hops in Oklahoma

    This is my bed setup... This is late afternoon so as you can see, it will receive partial shade during the hottest part of the day. I plan on waiting until the hop bines get some length on them to put the poles up

    Growing hops in Oklahoma

    So I decided to try my hand at growing hops in Oklahoma. I couldn't find any articles from anyone who had grown in OK and with our crazy hot weather I'm not entirely sure what to expect. The area I placed the beds will give the hops sun until about 2pm and then the area will be partially...

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    After a 3 week primary and a 1 week crash cool in a secondary with gelatin, I kegged this tonight and it was crystal clear. The aroma was great and the hydro sample tasted awesome! I followed the recipe to a tee with 1 exception... I dry hopped the keg with 1 ounce of cascade in a nylon paint...

    Belgian Blond Ale SWMBO Slayer - Belgian Blonde

    This is how it looked after 3 days in the keg. The flash made it look kind of red for some reason but it's definitely more of a golden color. This picture was really more to show the clarity. This was my first time using gelatin and it turned out pretty good

    American Amber Ale Broken Leg House Amber

    Out of curiosity... What schedule did you use for your fermenters to get a 3 week turnaround? I was thinking maybe 10 days in primary and 7 days in secondary with the last 3 days of the 7 in the secondary being a crash cool with gelatin? That would leave 3 to 4 days to carb? This will be my...

    American Amber Ale Broken Leg House Amber

    So i just finished brewing this and put it into a primary. I ended up with a little shy of 6 gallons (including 1/4 gallon yeast starter) and a final gravity of 1.058. This is the first amber ale that I have brewed (about my 10th all grain batch in all) so I was wondering... what should the...

    American Amber Ale Broken Leg House Amber

    So I just picked up the ingredients and plan on brewing this tomorrow. The only change I made was the yeast. I'm using Wyeast 1272 American Ale II. Ive never used it before and I like to experiment with new yeasts! Here's my question... How quick can I expect to go grain to glass? I'm...
