    Need Advise: Belgian-American IPA

    Hi All, Brewed a Belgian-American IPA based off of Randy Mosher's recipe from Radical Brewing. After 10 days in the primary, it tastes pretty good, but I was really hoping for a better mix of a Belgian/IPA, but this beer is really more on the Belgian side. The other issue is I added some...

    Thoughts on cider fermentation

    Hi All, Can I get some opinions on the attached pic? Doing 3 quick 1 gal batches while my 5 gal batch ages. Added S04 and fermentation has been going strong and now starting to slow slightly. What are your thoughts on the clarity? Two jugs have cleared well, but the first is still very...

    First timer; Brew kettle question

    Hi All, First time brewer here. I searched the forums & didn't have any luck. Is it a must that I use a 5 gal brew kettle for a batch? In other words, I have a large stock pot, but it will not hold 5 gals. Can I prepare this batch like this or do I have to invest in a larger kettle?
