    Shelf life of GF beer

    My friend's mother has a gluten allergy, and asked me about brewing beer that is GF. My buddy and I were thinking of brewing her a 3 gallon batch of something, but were concerned about the shelf life. She doesn't drink very often, and we're worried that it may not age very well. Those of you...

    LAMP I got some free stuff

    So yesterday my dad told me he had a few surprises for me. Turns out it was four 5 gallon pyrex carboys. Three are graduated, and all four have a clear rubber like coating on them. Also an 8 gallon stainless pot. The only problem is that the openings on the carboys are large. Like 2.5 inch. I'll...

    I forgot my graff

    So I made a batch of graff on Halloween last year. I kinda forgot about it until a month or so ago. So it's been in bottles for three weeks and man is it tasty. I was a bit curious about how well it would hold up, but it's still very good. This is one of the better mistakes that I've made in a...

    Bell's 5l mini keg

    Does anyone know if the Bell's mini kegs are charged with CO2? A friend of mine had been wondering because he found one at a store near his house.

    Pumped up for Decatur tomorrow

    I just have to say it. I'm really excited for the Decatur craft beer festival tomorrow. I just saw a list of breweries and now i'm even more excited. Anyone else going to be there?

    So I'm getting a free vacuum pump

    I wanted to know if anyone has tried to transfer to a secondary in a carboy by pulling vacuum on the carboy and letting it pull the beer over. It seems like it could work very well with little to no chance of aeration. Any thoughts?

    What a wonderful night for a beer.

    Right now I'm brewing Orfy's Mild Mannered ale (or something close to it). It's about 65 outside with a cool light breeze. I'm sipping on a New Belgium Hoptober, and life could not be better right now. I'm thinking It should be dubbed the Mild Fall Evening Ale.

    Need help with a grain bill

    So I will be teaching my cousins husband how to brew all grain in a few weeks and he said he wanted to brew an American Amber. He said that he would like to brew something similar to Bell's Amber. I pieced together a rough recipe and would like your expert knowledge of grain character to see if...

    Help me determine the source of a flavor.

    So I recently brewed Ed's Kolsch. I tasted my first one last night and it was fantastic, and I found myself wondering where part of the flavor came from. It was a kind of strawberry grapefruit note. It was subtle, but added a nice finish to the beer. I used the WLP029 Kolsch yeast and fermented...

    Mashing in right now!

    So I'm on vacation this week, and what a better way to kick things off than brewing a Two Hearted clone! I just took a sample of the first all grain beer that I made (Ed's Haus Pale Ale dry hopped with 1 oz whole leaf cascade for two weeks) and it tastes amazing already. I can't wait to bottle...

    Yeast cropping

    I'm planning on trying a spontaneous fermentation later this year, and if it works I would like to save some of the yeast. I have an idea of a way to crop a sample of yeast to save. The reason I devised this plan is that I've heard that if top cropping yeast that it isn't recommended to hold on...

    Revvy is right... a lesson in RDWHAHB

    So on Friday I brewed my second all grain batch, Ed's Kolsch. The brew day went flawlessly I hit all of my temps and gravities. For the first time with this batch I made a starter using WLP029. The starter worked great and after 36 hours I had a nice layer of yeast settling a bit. I cold crashed...

    Danstar Munich

    Does anyone know a recommended temperature range for Danstar Munich. I've searched everywhere and can't find anything. I've got the water in my swamp cooler down to 55-58 degrees and my fermometer strip is showing 58 degrees and I'm wondering if I'm way too cold or what?

    French Broad Gateway Kolsch

    This beer is fantastic. I was in North Carolina a few weeks ago to visit a friend and I decided to pick up some local beer. I bought a bomber of each of the French Broad beers. It's around 90 degrees here today so I was in the mood for something light and refreshing, and this beer hit the spot...
