    Partial Mash recipie for a Wheat beer?

    Maybe I am not looking hard enough but I can't really seem to find one? Has anyone used one they enjoyed?

    Extreme foam -- for the third time!

    This happened with my first two Saisons and now again with my Scotch Ale. I opened the bottles and once it sets for a moment, it will just continue to foam out the bottle for several minutes. I thought the problem with the first two was too much priming sugar but I got it just right with this...

    Beer Cocktails?

    What are your favorites? The beer selections at the restaurant I work at are less than extraordinary because the boss obviously spends more time curating the wine list. But when the idea of beer cocktails came up in conversation he was all for it (for brunch) and said since it was in "my...

    4th batch -- some questions

    So previously I have brewed two saisons and a scotch ale, all of them from kits. So I decided to start putting together my own ingredients so I can learn more; so my last batch was just a basic pale ale. With my previous three, they each came with instructions from the brewing supply store...

    B is for Beer

    I've been a Tom Robbins fan for a long time and how WONDERFUL was it to see he made a children's book about beer. (A children's book for grown-ups or A grown-up book for Children the cover says) And I finally just got around to reading it last night. It's about a little girl who discovers what...

    My second batch - Each bottle was different!

    So my second batch of beer went much better than the first. I brewed a saison again because I had messed up so many factors on the first that I wanted to taste it done right. And some (!) were pretty delicious! I had various types of bottles. I had the little flip top grolsh bottles, regular...

    Priming Sugar -- Always?

    This may sound silly, and the problem is only arising because I am forgetful, but I went to bottle my third batch of beer today and I could not for the life of me find my priming sugar anywhere. The batch is from a kit and it made me wonder if ALL beer uses priming sugar when bottling? As in...

    Quick! So I forgot to punch my yeast packages...

    ...and allow them to swell 3 hours before hand. Wort is cooling now. Is it okay to let it hang out in the carboy for an hour or two before adding the yeast? Or is this going to mess everything up?

    Brewing in smaller batches?

    I wish I could brew everyday. However, I feel like that would just be TOO much beer (for my apartment) using the five gallon recipies I have been making. I don't have enough bottles, money, or room to do that. Does anyone here brew in smaller batches? I know they sell 3 gallon carboys...

    My first batch -- What went wrong?

    Greetings, First time posting, first time brewing, yadda yadda So I was able to drink my first batch of beer just yesterday. I realized quickly that I had messed up the cooling process and I did not activate the yeast properly. So when I went to open my bottles I was expecting the beer to...
