    Beetle problem

    I am a first year hop grower and have noticed a few beetle type insects chewing my hop leaves. Is there something all natural I can do to get rid of these guys? Also noticed the bottom leaves on a few of the plants are turning brown and dying. Thanks for any help.

    RIMS and Mash

    Recently did my first RiMS brew using a RIMS tube. I had to watch the flow pretty close because the flow would slow down. I used about a pound of rice hulls in a brown ale. Which normally would be over kill. I am using a keggle with a jbird false bottom and a 1.5" RIMS tube from Bobby. So...

    Blow off Yeast

    I recently finished a violent few days of a wheat beer blowing off into a 64 oz growler and the bucket it was in. The growler is now 3/4 full and it has about 2 " of trube / yeast maybe in the bottom. Since this is top fermenting, I would think this blow off collection would be rich in yeast...

    Bottling from a keg

    Does anyone have any comments on bottling from a keg and storing it at room temp? Will the beer go skunk like miller or Budweiser does? Usually it is not good to warm beer after it has been chilled. I use a bottle filler wander to fill from my Perlick faucet and it works great. I have a beer...

    Simcoe Hops

    I just got a bunch of Simcoe hops and I am trying to find some good recipes that use them. I have several other verities that I can mix. Such as amarillo, goldings cascade, fuggles, willamette, hallertau. The thing is I am not an IPA fan. That seems to be the main recipe that these are used...

    American Pilsen vs Briess pilsen malt. Does any one have any recommendations on these? The Briess seems to be sold out everywhere but American is available. Which is a better malt? My guess would be the Briess since it is sold out everywhere. Just don't want to buy a large quantity of the...

    1/2 Copper Union Question

    See the attached picture. The right union is 1/3 the price of the union on the left. The union on left is mostly copper / copper alloy. What is the right one made out of? Is is safe for boiling wort? Obviously I would like to use the cheaper right one if it is not going to leach lead or...

    Coffee Porter

    I am looking to add some coffee to my porter. I have read a few posts here about the right way to do it. Since all ways seem right, I am going to gamble. Espresso shots to the keg. Plus I am not a coffee drinker and can't make a good cup. Taste testing I realized I can't brew coffee worth a...
