    Temagami Portaging

    We are canoeing 8 hours away from where the nearest motorboat is allowed so the fishing is going to be awesome. Its a very strange feeling to know that in 8 hours the only stuff I will have for a week is what I schlep in on my back. That being said, we are not paddling hard every day. Long...

    International Dark Lager AG - Headstrong Munich Lager Clone (Ale Yeast)

    This was my first attempt at a clone. I decided to try mainly because the stupid LCBO isn't carrying this any more because it "isn't selling well." The guy who told me this recommend a schwarzbeer as an acceptable substitute. Yikes. Not that there is anything wrong with a schwarzbeer...

    Serious Career Advice Request

    Hello: A little bit about me. I'm 28, have a philosophy degree ( :drunk: ) , a job history in sales, and have been playing poker as my fulltime job for the past 18 months. I have been doing quite well but don't really see a serious future in it for me. Frankly I'm afraid to go "big time"...

    Stockpile of awesome Food

    Hi there, I request assistance. I like to cook, and go on binges here and there (see my other thread). But, I get really sick of "the same old thing." I'm also very lazy and don't like to take more than an hour to cook (although If I'm brewing I will use the downtime to marinate etc.)...

    My Latest Cooking Kick

    I tend to go on cooking binges (like I do with most other things). In the last 4days I have made - 1: Pot Roast with roasted potatoes, carrots, onions, Rosemary Au jus sauce 2: Beef Stroganoff with egg noodles and a Borscht with Sour Cream. 3: Beef fried steak with fries and...

    MoBasic Beer

    Howdy: I'm going to make an assumption - Many of us are guilty of of going too far with a recipe. We (I mean me) need to "get back to basics" as it were instead of going "hmm, maybe this special B with a little Munich and a little light crystal might be nice. I am thinking about making a...

    Visual difference between Lager and Ale Fermentation

    Ok. Call me crazy. I've used both lager and ale yeast many times before but my most recent batch has one brew with ale yeast and one with lager yeast. The difference in the activity in the 2 worts is very interesting...It almost looks like the lager yeast are working in tandem to create a...

    False Dunkel - Mashing in right now!

    Hey all: Well, I decided to brew today after all. Creativity trumped laziness. Hey, it can happen :) 2 batches, one mash. There is a commercial brew I enjoy called headstrong munich lager, which I am not trying to clone (not even close :P ), but I think it is something of a dunkel, but...

    Thermometer calibration

    Anyone else really distrust their thermometer? Here's an easy way to gauge (I know precision is what we seek, but lets get serious shall we? ;) ) the reasonable accuracy of your thermometer. I read this info off of a "How not to kill your baby" pamplet - you know what I mean. Household...

    Air Headspace in Secondary

    Well: I underestimated the quantity of pale ale in my primary - I thought I had 23L, it turns out I only have 19L. I blame the trub. How did I figure this out? When I racked into the 23L secondary. I now have ~4L of air at the top of my carboy. I'm not going to cry or anything but...

    Princess Auto Corona Mill

    First off: any Canadians who have never been to Princess auto are missing out. It is the coolest place ever. I had never heard of it until I asked for a cheap place to buy a grain mill. Wow - I described it to my girlfriend - "imagine entering the best shoestore ever, now make it for...

    Overly Bitter IPA

    Hi all: SG 1.055 6 gallon batch Hop additions. 1.75oz cascades @60 min. 1oz fuggles 20mins, 1/2oz fuggles at flameout. So, it is a little too bitter for my tastes. Tastes really good otherwise. Is it a horrible crime to add an extra gallon of boiled cooled water to cut down the...

    Mashing too hot?

    I have read that a higher mash temp will result in more unfermentable sugars in my wort. I realize there are a lot of variables that hinge on style, but I was going for a dry stout, may have overshot my mash temp (maybe not, I need a new thermometer) and am curious what my FG might be if I...

    Jacking it!

    No, it's not what you think sickos :ban: I racked my 23L carboy of wildberry mead (which has a beautiful rose crystal clear appearance and tastes great :) ) into a 19L carboy beacuse it's all I have on hand and it was racking time. So: I've got ~3 1/2L of ~14% that I racked into a big...

    Non-Alcoholic Beer?

    First off: I'm not interested in making the stuff. I'm just curious as to how it is made. The closest I can come to guessing is that they brew a low gravity beer and then do something akin to distilling away the alcohol. My parents were drinking some over the long weekend here and I...

    Looking for Chili Experts

    Hello All: I've got a chili stout in the primary right now and I'm just curious about the spice/taste you've managed to get from your chili brews. I guess I'm looking for taste feedback and curious about the taste/burn balance. FYI, my stout is about 1.040, with 10 long red chinese...

    3 brews in 6 hours - Parti-on-gyles!

    Well, I had a fun day. 3 brews. ~22 pounds of base grain for 3 runnings, a little maple syrup, a little brown sugar, and some CHILLIES! I'm not beside my brewlog right now so I'll have to wing it: 1. I.P.A. ~1.055, 1/4# Munich, 1/4# special, 2oz cascade, 1 oz fuggles (aroma) 2...

    Grain Milling Problem

    :( Well folks, I'm frustrated. I bought 2 25K sacks of grain and was excited about making 2 batches tomorrow. I thought I had all my variables in order but now that I'm trying to crush my grains I'm finding out it is a logistical nightmare. My options: A) Take it to a brew shop...
