    ECY020 (Bug County) lag times...

    Ok, total (sour) n00b question here, but how long does Bug County take to get going? And (again n00b), how does it behave in the fermenter? Krausen? Airlock jumping? Slimy, viscous looking on top? A bit of background; last week I brewed up my second Flanders red/brown recipe and pitched a...

    Taking the plunge!!

    Since they're so damned expensive to drink, I've decided to take the plunge and dedicate some equipment to sour brewing. My first batch will be a Flanders red loosely based on JZ's recipe in BCS. I'm hoping to brew this in the next week, but I have a couple (albeit neurotic) questions. Mash...

    Holy Rhino Farts, Beerman!!! (an RDWer's guide to stinky fermentation)

    I'm posting this because I often see new brewers posting on the forums about foul smells coming from their fermenters. Obviously, when you're hoping that the beer you made is going to taste like the nectar of the Gods, smelling rotten eggs coming from the airlock can be bothersome to say the...

    Why do you make a starter?

    Ok, I've been discussing the different reasons that we make yeast starters on this thread, and it has me wondering..... I make starters to grow yeast, and don't pay much attention to pitching active yeast, as I do to pitching enough healthy yeast. Why do you guys make starters?

    BeerSmith 2 Cloud question

    I recently got BeerSmith 2, I love it, great software. I currently have a couple recipes in there that I've created since buying it, and I want to put them into the Cloud feature to share online. I'm sure I'm overlooking something obvious, is there a way to put an existing recipe into cloud, or...

    Time for big boy software... So many choices!

    I've been brewing for a couple years now, BIAB AG for the last ~year and use BrewPal for the iPhone. I like it, but I feel that I've sort of outgrown it. BrewPal does a lot for a phone app, but from what I've seen, there's many far better brewing programs out there. I've played around with the...

    Summertime Adjunct Lagers

    It's Memorial Day weekend, so summer's officially here (although you wouldn't know it if ya lived in Mpls today, cold n rainy). I'm guessing I'm like many other beer lovers out there, and summertime means lots of lawnmower beer. I'm wondering what everyone's favorite not-so-craft light lager is...

    So, what exactly IS Wy 3056....?

    I'm planning a brew using this yeast, based on the flavor characteristics Wy describes on their site. It seems like a good compromise, my wife wants a clean wheat beer, and I prefer one with some nice banana/clove flavors going on. Wy's website says that 3056 is a blend of a clean ale strain and...

    calling all disc golfers.....

    so i've noticed quite a few of my fellow home brewers are also fellow disc golfers, which of course kicks a$$. i'm sitting here cleaning up my bag, getting ready for my first outing of 2012, and i figured i'd start a new thread for us all to talk frolf.... and beer! it'd be great to have a...

    Burton Ale, first draft

    i'm planning to brew a 19th century Burton style ale for one of my next brews and began putting together my recipe this afternoon. since there's not many commercial examples or recipes of this style, i've been doing all the research i can. i've been reading 'Shut Up About Barclay Perkins' like a...

    Harvesting Yeast from commercial bottles

    I've been posting about this topic a lot lately, it seems that many brewers want to harvest yeast from some of their favorite commercial breweries. some really good craft breweries bottle condition a few of their brews with what seems like a gift to us home brewers. Rogue and Bell's are the two...

    anyone else as not excited for tonight's game as i?

    ok, i'll probably get a lot of $h!t for this, but i'm wondering: are there others out there who're less than excited for tonight's Super Bowl? anyone who would've liked to see a game with a good story line? like Harbaugh Bowl II? or the upstart Niners taking on the tired ol' Pats? or anything...

    'cool' temperature ale fermentation

    i've seen a lot of posts recently with the OP asking if his/her fermentation temps are too low. most of the time, their ambient temps are a bit low, but considering the exothermic properties of fermentation, they're actually fermenting right in the desired range for the yeast they're using...
