    Brewday gone bad - Burned wort?

    Well, I just drank a cup of warm wort! I guess there is a first for everything :) When I opened the fermenter that is cooling down in the tub, there is a hint of a burning smell of it but I did not detect anything seriously burnt when tasting it. I will just pitch the yeast as usual and see...

    Brewday gone bad - Burned wort?

    Oh, man what a brewday I had to day! What was supposed to be a longish 5 hour brewday with a rather long mash schedule (BIAB) has turned out to be 9 hours and will end up in around 10 hours total! During the start of my boil, my electric heating elements gave out so I had to boil the 6...

    I really liked the smell of Columbus and the wort so I think this one will turn out well! The boil was fairly vigorous but it would be interesting to hear from some of the experts if this 90 min boil for the Pilsner malt is no longer needed? At least this is the first I hear of it...

    Recipe help

    So, this is what I have come up with so far. I want to try single hopping with Columbus since Beersmith states that it was engineered as a substitute for Centennial. I have adjusted the hop alpha acids based on their age and storage methods so the precentages are a bit lower than you would...

    Good point on the session beer definition bobbrews. I just looked it up and this is what Beer Advocate came up with: I suppose that I am looking for something similar but with an ABV of around 5.5 percent. And those pointers on the hop schedule was exactly what I was looking for. I will...

    Good suggestions! The Brewferm Blanche is good for wheat beers so I could use that one. What about hop amounts? That is what I am most concerned about. I do not want to overdo it with these hops since I want these to be session beers. Is that perhaps not such a big issue?

    Recipe help

    Hi guys, I am trying to finish off some of the supplies I have before ordering new ingredients and I need some help on formulating a recipe out of this mess! What I am basically looking for is a session beer on the hoppier side in the 5.5-6% ABV range around 5.5 gallons. I have just been...

    Norcold Kegerator Conversion

    Did some reading and of course I still have to find the coolant lines on the inside :o The model number is RS-17DL4SA and I have not found it on the norcold website. This is probably an European model. Will give them a call tomorrow. Here is a picture from the front.

    Norcold Kegerator Conversion

    I got a used Norcold fridge that I am converting to a kegerator with a 2-tap tower. I'm trying to figure out if I need to worry about coolant lines with this fridge. I have tried the corn starch / alcohol method without seeing any results. Do I have to worry about coolant lines on the...

    Recommendations for American Craft Beers?

    Yeah I know the question is a bit open ended but it's on purpose. I've just recently started exploring beers so I want to try out as much as I can and I'm open to tasting all styles. But since I am going to USA I of course want to try out the domestic/local beers. Btw, I will be staying in...

    Hoboken / Jersey city, beer bars

    This one sounds spot on! Thanks for the info.

    Recommendations for American Craft Beers?

    Thanks for the suggestions! Can't wait to try some of these out! What about beers from breweries such as The Lost Abbey, Russian River, Southampton Public House, Avery, Allagash, Climax? Can I get any of those in New Jersey / New York? Climax brewery is at least located in NJ so I must be able...
