    Yeast starter smells like cardboard?!?!?

    Any thoughts? It had been taking a slower time to get going vs. my bavarian lager wyeast starter, so I took a sniff and smelt cardboard. It's a belgian saison yeast from white labs. Cause for major concern?

    What is this gonna taste like? (I was shooting for an amber)

    I had a ground up bag of mixed grain I was saving for a banana flavored porter. After deciding to give more time developing that recipe, I threw the grains and 8 pounds of LME together with some left over hops for the hell of it. 2 oz 2-Row Chocolate Malt 8 oz Crystal 60 8 oz Crystal 120...

    Keg lube and mini co2 injectors

    The other day I noticed a leak in my keg set up. My freshly filled c02 tank was at zero. I emptied a c02 cartridge into it with my mini injector and popped on a pressure gage. 1 cartridge gave me 13 psi. The next day it was empty so I opened up the top and lubed up the top's o ring. Gave another...

    Re-using yeast cake after cold crash; possible?

    I've got a pumkpkin ale that I have plans to cold crash when the primary fermentation finally stops. It's been going for about two weeks. When the yeast finally tucker out, my plans are to cold crash it, rack it straight to the keg, and throw a porter on top of the cake. How cold can I crash the...

    Ever buy morebeer's "fresh extract", specifically the pilsner extract?

    I bought a 7lb bag of pilsner malt extract from morebeer as well as other shtuff... will update if they all come before two weeks (free shipping)... They say that selling two liquid extracts keeps the turner over rate high and products fresh. Mostly I was just excited to see a pilsner...

    Burton ale yeast... woof.

    I had more wort than I had planned when I made my pumpkin, which is trivial now because once that burton yeast got going it blew out about a half gallon. It's been fermenting for a little less than a week, and still has a heavy krausen. When does this yeast turn off beast mode?

    Group brew & swap?

    Would anybody be down for a brew and swap? Haven't seen a group brew on the board for a while, might be due for it. Is there a recipe, style or ingredient that could be the focus of the brew? It's getting cold, basements are getting at lagering temps... let me know if you're interested. :mug:

    Tell me what you think of this Pumpkin recipe.

    I'm stoked for this, I've been enjoying the hell out of shipyard's pumpkin ale. This will probably be a little more filling and pie tasting, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm still playing around with the recipe, this is it for now. Kettle Volume: 6.48 gal (S.G.: 1.052) Boil Duration...

    Berkshire River Ale, suggestions on cloning it?

    Anyone heard of or had this beer? Berkshire brewing company's River Ale? It's great but almost 5 dollars for a 22oz which sucks. It's got some underlying nutty flavors that I can't accurately describe. It's just a great normal beer, as craft beer goes. Has anyone had this, that can weigh in on...

    Electric motors and stirring/cooling wort

    I had been thinking about Jamil's wort cooling technique and about surface area for the last week. I love the temps he gets and the time he's getting them, but I don't want to buy a pump (even though I really really want one) and I don't want to clean the pump. So I've been thinking about other...

    Second AG, nailed OG, plus; guilt free wort chilling
