    What I did for beer today

    shared my Saison with HBT!!! A recipe that turned out well for me. One of those, "I wish someone would invent taste-o-vision for the internet" moments. Doing an Irish Red with cherries tomorrow, i'll keep you all posted.

    First Saison

    That's what I was thinking, it laces nicely, tastes great, but the head disappears after about five minutes. No biggie for me, it drinks just as well and i'm sure my fishing buddies (who i'm trying to convert to homebrew) will enjoy it as well. On a side note, it smells like a fresh sliced...

    Ipa stuck at 1.030 help me plz

    That's the problem with transferring to secondary before reaching FG. I think you lost a lot of your yeast, but if they pooped out before you reached FG, that suggests your mash temps where a bit high and left some sugars around the yeast couldn't eat. If you want to get that gravity down you...

    First Saison

    Here you go, all I have for notes on this one. My comments are a bit lacking in detail.... it is pretty straightforward. Like I said in a previous post, this one is lacking in head retention, so I may consider Carapils somewhere in the recipe at some point, or leave well enough alone. Cloud 9...

    First Saison

    Clove at first, followed by a semi-sweet / spice flavor (think peppered banana and papaya), and finishes citrus. Could use a bit of improvement in the head retention department, but overall one of my finer brews.

    PSA: Check your tank's weight after a fill

    Also, I have found that those paper gaskets sometimes included (by OxArc at least) are typically old and leak.... invest in a teflon gasket. Perhaps this time I can use my tank for more than one keg! :off:

    Some help with my water report?

    As far as flavor in concerned, my tap water is pretty good, no off flavors that I know of. I was just curious if someone can help break down my water report for me and what it means to my home brewing? http://www.cityofml.com/ArchiveCenter/ViewFile/Item/1028 (I am on Well 4, if that helps)...

    What I did for beer today

    I made my first Saison. Basically went with some pilsner malts, wheat, and centennial hops. Pitched 3724, so it's a pretty basic saison. I guess I will see what happens.

    Want to Get Into Kegging - Need Feedback on Potential System

    Some great replies so far, and a lot to think about. I do have a keezer setup already, and so far only plan on using picnic line until I build a skirt for my keezer. I suppose if 5' of serving line isn't enough, I can always replace it later once I have the line in-hand and can get an accurate...

    You know you're a home brewer when?

    That is how I got most of my bottles. Rather than buy brand new bottles, I just shopped for filled ones with water soluble adhesive and pop-top lids. Saved a bit of money on shipping, and they came pre-filled! I still find replacements this way...some people I share with seem to forget to...

    Want to Get Into Kegging - Need Feedback on Potential System

    I want to start kegging my homebrew. I've got my system dialed in and am regularly whipping up some delicious homebrew. I want to step my game up a bit and am looking at getting into kegging to free up some storage space. I have been doing some shopping around, and I stumbled across a kegging...
