    Cigar City maduro oatmeal brown clone attempt

    On reddit a user posted this..don't know if this is you: What I did since I did an extract recipe was I used 3.15 lbs of Maris Otter extract from Northern Brewer, and 3.15 of Amber Extract, since the grains would give the beer the darker tint. Its in the bucket bubbling away as we speak, so...

    Wasn't it 63% 2 marris otter? That's the original recipe...which yeast have you been using?

    Cigar City maduro oatmeal brown clone attempt

    Well ended up having to run to my lhbs, the wyeast 1968 I ordered from Northern Brewer wasn't viable, my starter did nothing. They were awesome and gave me a credit for it, but had to run out and get Wlp002 for it. Used the new pure pitch packets which wasn't bad. But so far it has the right...

    Question regarding Growlers

    Well in Florida home brewers are allowed to give away their homebrew as I've participated in many beer fest's with homebrew pavilions and all I'm doing is giving away free beer there.

    Question regarding Growlers

    I have friends, family, and followers who are wanting to purchase my beer, but of course as a home brewer I cannot "legally" sell my product. What are the laws, restrictions or whatever when it comes to selling custom growlers, and then filling them as a thank you for the purchase of the...

    Convert from Barbed Regulator to MFL

    This is the regulator I'm using. I've tried looking around but can't find any solutions short of adding a piece of tubing to the barb with another valve and a 1/4" end in order to connect each end of the gas line with an mfl connection. Any ideas or am I on the right track?

    IS THIS A GOOD DEAL? Co2 Tank

    Yea looks like the 20# might have a sticker on it from Airgas, so lets see if I get away with it, if not I'll act none the wiser if they do catch it :D

    IS THIS A GOOD DEAL? Co2 Tank

    Yea I just called Airgas and they told they'd charge me $20 for the "hydro" and $20 for an exchange on the 20#. So $55 for a 20# tank full ($15 for the 20# + the $40) And if I exchange the 15# too for something similar or even smaller, then I'd be getting 2 tanks for under $100 bucks full.

    IS THIS A GOOD DEAL? Co2 Tank

    I got a picture of the sticker and the 20# is over 15 years out of hydro, still worth it you guys think?

    IS THIS A GOOD DEAL? Co2 Tank

    I have someone local to me selling a used 15 and 20 # co2 tanks, empty a few years out of hydro, and $30 for both tanks. A little bit of surface rust on them, so they look decent. Thoughts?

    Some more washing questions

    That would actually be pretty good...but I just did my first wash, and what I did was add the water to the trub, bottle my beer, then I poured it into my bottling bucket and let it settle down for a few minutes and just poured off of the spigot on my bottling bucket. You can save yourself one...

    Yeast Washing Question

    So if I'm reading that article correctly that means that all 3 of my jars has more then enough viable cells to use for my next batch? I did the usual add water to bucket, swirl, let sit, and then poured off 4 jars from the spigot on the bucket. It left a lot of dark trub on the bottom of the...

    Yeast Washing Question

    I finally did my first yeast wash yesterday and I did the typical 4 jars, to 2 jars, but when I finished moving everything into the 2 jars, I decided to combine 2 of the original 4 into one just to see my results, and its pretty interesting what has come out. What do you guys think, do I look...
