    Kettle Peach Sour?

    Ok, we have crates of peaches in at our local store, and we are having a crazy idea of trying to make our first kettle sour, and then use the peaches in infuse some more flavor. However, I have no idea how to make a sour, never tried making one, but I love drinking them. Can someone, anyone...

    Small c02 and picnic tap?

    Anyone have a link to a small c02 and picnic tap that will allow us to serve out of a carbonated keg outside of our keezer? Say for small one day get togethers and doesn't make us take the whole kegerator?

    BlackBerry wheat lacking flavor

    Hey everyone. My buddies and I biab, made the wheat beer that is attached to this post with a can of vintners BlackBerry puree. Batch 1, last year, was nothing short of great. This batch, now with RO water and a bit of gypsum, lacks flavor. Beer looks good, smells good, but has no real...

    Water Test

    Alright, @brandtrepair sent a sample of his well water off to Ward laboratories, and, well, we don't know crap about water chemistry. Below is what they found. What can you tell us about this? We make a lot of IPAs, NEIPAs, and pale ales. Want to test our hand at this water chemistry stuff...

    Jalapeno Beer - Questions

    Alright, we've been asked to make a jalapeno beer, which we've never attempted. I'm debating what I think a good base for this beer would be and am looking for opinions or recipes or input of any kind, essentially. Do you just make something light like Cream of 3 Crops or do you go with an IPA...

    Electric BIAB Questions

    So, my buddy and I both brew, and we typically do our brew days together. Currently, we both have 10 gallon pots, bags, and make 5 gallons at a time. Here is what I'm interested in, and I'm curious (I didn't see any posts about one) if it's possible. So, let's say we move up to making 10 or...

    Grain Mill recommendations

    Alright, what does everyone here recommend on the grain mill side of things? We do BIAB, 5 gallons at a time, hopefully scaling that up in the near future to 10-15 gallon batches. Any upgrades or DIY stuff that we can do so we can hook a drill up to it would be grreeeaaaat. Thanks!

    Blackberry Puree addition??

    Hey guys, my wife had my pick up a large can of Blackberry Puree, brewers best I want to say, but I don't know off hand. What I'm curious of is when the best time to add this is, assuming in a secondary? Thinking of making a variation of the cream of 3 crops with a little of the puree, and...

    Pale Ale BIAB

    Thoughts on this? Too basic? Going to do several of these simple grain bill beers with different hops, SMaSH essentially, to get an idea of what each hop brings to the table. This will be a 5 gallon BIAB brew in a 10 gallon pot. Beersmith didn't kick me out water volumes, which sucks. Any...

    Brew stand and burner

    Any burner recommendations? Currently doing 5 gallon BIAB in a 10 gallon Bayou SS pot. We are using a generic burner like one would get for frying fish from Cabelas. Would want to be able to move to a 20 gallon pot and 10 gallon batches at some point....maybe.

    Water report

    Is this good, bad, or ugly? We are just moving to 5 gallon BIAB so I figured we'd complicate it a bit more and look at water chemistry. Thoughts?

    Secondary vessel options?

    Alright, so I've read that we aren't supposed to secondary in our white plastic buckets. So, I'm curious what everyone recommends? I've seen some negatives about the big mouth bubbler, so I'm not sure I want to go that way. We are moving to BIAB in a 10 gallon pot, making 5 gallon batches...

    House Party / Need recommendations

    Hey everyone. So, as fall is rapidly approaching, we are thinking of throwing a little pre-harvest party (we're in farm country), and I want ideas on what to brew. I'd light the smoker, make some pulled pork and maybe some ribs or something. We'd have guests bring some beer/liquor of their...

    Alright, so we're new to this, and I'm hoping for some insight and guidence along the way! We picked up at Mana Freezer, Model C70DW A0 I have no idea on the cubic feet, but I know it will hold 3 of our 5 gallon kegs. I'm wanting to take the lid off, add a collar to have our taps in, and...
