    Arugula Saison Experiment

    Yes, very interested. How'd it go? Also, could you get the peppery taste of Arugula simply by fermenting the Saison warm? (I think it is warm for peppery saisons.) Or how about "cheating" and adding black peppercorn to the end of the boil?

    adding cider to beer, bad idea?

    At an Irish pub in Berlin I used to order a Guinness with a "shot" of cider. Yummy.

    What's a better capper?

    Bench capper all the way. Ruined a batch thinking my porter bottles were properly capped with a wing capper. 4 weeks later tasted the oxygenation.

    Brewing using Birch twigs and leaves + other trees. Is it safe?

    There is birch vodka out there. You could always add that to the bottling bucket. No worries about the branches or leaves! Some trees' leaves can be bad when using too much. In survival school, the instructors mentioned pine needle tea, but said you can not use too much or else you'll get very...

    Red White and Blue Independence Day Beer

    I do an IPA a couple times a year with hibiscus in it. I've done it with 2oz and 4oz (both at 15 left in the boil). Both have tasted great, and both were red. Interestingly, all my American friends who tried it loved it but couldn't identify the "spice." My Indian (subcontinent) friend took...

    Water or Vodka for Airlock?

    Vodka everytime. A liter bottle of okay-tasting-perfect-for-airlock vodka here costs three bucks. I'd rather use that than Star-san.

    Dry version of Tennessee Whiskey Yeast (White Labs #WLP050)

    @Double_D, Austin homebrew said "likely the CO2 throwing off the hydrometer reading." I had never heard of that. Have you?

    How many gallons of homebrew in 2016?

    8330 gallons +5 gallons of Belgian Golden = 8335. For the record, I think jmill thinks this thread is just for how many gallons he's brewed this year. @jmill, this thread totals all the gallons we've all done this year.

    Brew Bucket by SS Brewing Technologies

    Anyone considered pour the hot wort into the Brew Bucket and chilling in there, instead of chilling in the kettle then transferring?

    Dry version of Tennessee Whiskey Yeast (White Labs #WLP050)

    OK, so I did the KC on 1 May. Today (14 May here) I took a gravity. I think I have a problem. The original gravity was 1.049. Today I got 1.030. Is my fermentation stuck? This is the yeast I used, link here. Here's the description: Should I add another packet of a different yeast (I have...

    Honey in brewing

    I take the honey, which I buy from the local market in a place called "Доктор мед" or "Doctor Honey." A big multi-use spoon dipped into a plastic bucket, which pulls out delicious and beautiful honey. For carbonating, I put the requisite...
