    What would you do with this stand? (Stainless find inside)

    Hi there...so I will admit that I have never put much thought or planning into building a brew stand so go easy on me. I have been brewing for quite a while using my archaic stacking of beer crates to have gravity on my side. Anyhow I was at a local recycling plant and I found this stainless...

    Other European beer crates...Store your homebrew in style!

    So I realized just how much I love these things while living in Europe. They are awesome for storing your homebrewed beer and travelling with them. I have several of these and can get access to many more if people have a desire for them. Not trying to make a killing off of these but I do have...

    One year hiatus...and I still got it!

    For various reasons, health/work/etc... I took about a year hiatus from doing something that I love..Brewing beer! I brewed this past weekend for the first time in a year and it went so perfectly that I can not wait to do it again. Brewed a Rye saison (from the recipe section here) using...

    Double Nelson IPA recipe formulating

    Hey guys I want to make a Big beer lots of hop flavor, lots of complex malt flavor and a big rye kick to finish it off. I came up with this recipe and wanted to see if anyone thought I was nuts or if this could potentially turn out interesting. It is 100% all nelson sauvin hops. I love this...

    Beer tools 1.5.21 update!

    Ready to start looking at my water in Germany

    Okay so I've been brewing for about 3 years now and I've been overall pretty pleased with *MOST* of my beers. There have been a few that have been coming out not as expected. Namely beers leaning toward the malty/roasty flavor profile and mouthfeel problems as well. My lighter color beers...

    Grow your own beer garden.

    I thought this was pretty funny...My friends on facebook all know that I'm a home brewer so when they came across this they posted it onto my wall. Seems like a nice enough idea but I can't imagine this thing holding enough ingredients for more than a 1 gallon batch of beer :) Still could be...

    Beer sticking around 1.026

    Hey fellas I threw together a random beer from ingredients that I had laying around after my old friend and brew partner left (he got out of the air force and left me here in Germany w/ nobody to brew with!) Anyway he gave me a bunch of ingredients he had laying around when he left and I tossed...

    Air tight transferring into the corny keg

    Here is how I've been transferring into the keg..wondering if anyone else does something similar. I'm so afraid of oxygen getting into my beer that I tried to come up with the most airtight transfer I could think of. It just so happens that a siphon fits perfectly into the end of a picnic...

    Wild hops in Germany

    Moving into a new house in Niersbach, Germany (I'm stationed here) I homebrew (duh that's why I'm here) and while poking around in the backyard there is a hop plant not trained in anyway just growing like a weed in the backyard. It had a lot of big green buds on it but each bud had some brown on...

    Belgium beer fest / Brussels Belgium Sept 3/4/5

    I know I know it's a tease to those that are in the states but I figured I would toss this up in case there are any others that are in Europe that would be interested in going. I have a hotel booked for the weekend at Brussels at Radisson BluRoyal and will be with a group of 6 people so if...

    To repitch or not?

    Wanted to make a post to get some ideas from those of you that might have seen this before. I brewed a beer several weeks ago and it fermented down to 1.015 according to the recipe you add 1lb of inverted turbinado sugar to the secondary. I did that and when I racked into the secondary I made...

    Take a look at this Wit beer plan por favor...

    Hey guys I brewed this recipe a few days ago and have it fermenting downstairs at a constant 62F. This recipe I got from my friend has some crazy fermentation plans and I was wondering what benefit this would have? I'm going to be racking to secondary overtop of some sanitized grapefruit peel...

    Partial mash and efficiency.

    I know the way to check your efficiency is via hydrometer reading but how do you know what your efficiency is with a partial mash? I'm just curious as how to figure out what my target gravity after my mash is supposed to be because of my malt extract not being added yet I'm not going to be near...
