    Brewing Classic Styles issues...

    It seems to me that if you can create a beer that meets the bjcp style guidelines for Aroma, Appearance, flavor, mouth feel and overall impression then, it should score well in competition regardless of what ingredients/process you use to create the beer. Once it's in the glass, the judges have...

    "leftovers" to make a mild

    I've thought about that. Since I don't have a dual regulator on my co2 tank, I'm thinking of using "natural" carbonation instead. I'm just not sure I want to wait for it to carbonate. :(

    "leftovers" to make a mild

    I'm on "Staycation" this week and I've decided to do some brewing. I brewed a Foreign extra stout on Monday. Then on Wed. I handn't had my fill of brewing so I checked my stockpile of brewing ingredients and came up with the following made from various leftovers: OG: 1.039 IBU...

    ever had the cops called on you for brewing?

    It was a joke... I thought the little smiley face in the bottom would have tipped you off.

    ever had the cops called on you for brewing?

    You see... That's how it starts. First they encourage you to report drunk driving and meth labs, next thing you know you'll be encouraged to report people who leave too many lights on (with the wrong kind of bulbs.), people who burn too much gas, and people with the wrong political views in...

    My Frigidaire Keezer - Birdseye

    Very nice... How did you mount the L brackets for the drip tray? I have a drip tray for my kegerator but I haven't figured out a good way to mount it yet.

    Thinking about a kindle but the books are $$$

    My daughter has a Kindle and she loves it. So much so that I've been kind of wanting one of my own. I recently discovered that I could cash in some S&H Greenpoints and get enough in Amazon Gift cards to cover the cost of the unit. My only hesitation is the cost of the books. I buy most of...

    Vienna Lager - Interesting

    Couple of questions: How many gallons did you actually end up with post boil? It'll be interesting to hear how far off the hops:gravity ratio is and how it affects the flavor of the finished beer. keep us posted. I'd love to see that recipe if you care to share. I'm planning to brew a...

    Lager emiting a sharp smell

    I'm a set it and forget it kind of guy. So, often I pitch the yeast, shut the refrigerator door, set the temp, and then don't open it again for two weeks. Sometimes when I open the door the smell is pretty intense. (Especially if I have more than one beer fermenting at a time.) But 99% of...

    Need a beer style suggestion for a picky SWMBO

    If she likes Miller lite... All-Grain - Miller Lite (Really Triple Hopped) - I haven't brewed it myself. But, according to the thread, it seems to be well received by lite beer drinkers. I might also suggest: Cream of three crops - I've made it several times and my friends really...

    Vienna Lager Eliot Ness Vienna Lager Clone

    Looks tasty... But, how can this be a "Vienna" lager with no "Vienna" malt?

    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    I've made this several times ( the original recipe ) and the corn flavor definitely comes through. I'll probably make another batch for a Memorial Day camping trip and I'm thinking of backing off on the corn a bit. My plan was to just bump up the rice and drop the corn to get the same OG...

    It's official, I'm having heart surgery on Feb 18th...wow, it's real now.

    Good Luck Revvy. I'll have a pulled pork sandwich and a homebrew on the 18th and you'll be in my thoughts.

    Deep Six Brewing System - v3.0

    I've seen these kegs when I was delivering some stuff to a McDonalds dist. center. They have Pin-lock gas in and liquid out posts, and Coca-Cola labels on them. I guess it saves the driver a lot of back breaking work unloading those Syrup boxes.

    1st post, 1st brew, 1st krausen on ceiling?

    I use HD/Lowe's tubing all the time. So that should be fine. Congrats on brewing your first batch. R.I.S. is a pretty big beer. Don't get too excited as drink em all to soon. Make sure to save a few and let them age a little.

    Dr. Pepper Clone

    Do you mix this in the glass, pre-mix it in a keg, or something else?

    Brew Day! I have a few last minute questions.

    1. yes you should aerate. I do it after the wort cools below to near pitching temp. I use a sanitized wisk. 2. I leave mine alone for two weeks then, I pull a sample with a sanitized turkey baster. If I'm close to my expected fg, then I'm good to go straight into the keg/bottling bucket...

    Brewing today - forgot yeast starter - what to do?

    I've done that myself a time or two. I've made the starter on brew day morning, Brew that afternoon, and then pitched the next morning. So far - so good...

    Going All Grain without Fermentation Temp Control

    I believe you should be able to do both. Spend the money on temp control. Then, you can piece together a modest all grain set up with very little money at all. You could do Brew in a Bag or pick up a cooler at Goodwill or a Salvation army store for a couple of bucks and with a little...
