    Re-use oak spiral from cabernet

    My first search leads me to little oak flavor left, but they smell fantastic! Just like the wine. Has anyone tried reusing these in a stout or other beer? I make more beer than wine and would like to see if reusing this would be worth it.

    First fruit beer

    The last time I made a fruit beer, I made a peach wheat and used the canned fruit. The beer tasted like the inside of the tin can. Took a year to drink it. I won't make that mistake again. Either using frozen or boiled fresh fruit in my next brew: Cherry Brown

    Hermitage Single Hops Series

    I saw these at Bevmo in Scottsdale. Picked up one of each. Never brewed with these hops before so I think its a great way to know what the beer will turn out to be like before brewing.

    Recipe Critique Please: Honey ginger IPA

    I was going to go with 2oz candied ginger chopped up per the book. I'm starting to think EKG should not be the bittering hop addition. Suggestions? Anything outside of a high alpha?

    Recipe Critique Please: Honey ginger IPA

    I was looking to make my first IPA and found an idea in "Radical Brewing". There was no recipe just "make and IPA and use EKG exclusively. Add 2 pounds honey and ginger to secondary."

    Orange Blossoms in beer

    Still haven't heard from four peaks brewing. I tried making a tea of orange blossoms and didn't get much flavor. a few handfuls for a cup of water might not have been near enough. Putting this idea on the back burner for now, but not giving up on it totally.

    worst beer you ever made

    Taste your canned fruits before use. My peach wheat wasn't beer. It was licking the inside of a can pint after pint. Lesson learned.

    Orange Blossoms in beer

    I called Papago brewing co and they use extracts from a company (something like McCormick, I forgot the name) for the orange and vanilla flavors in that beer. I told him why I was asking and he actually suggested using coffee flavoring syrups if I want to replicate that flavor on a homebrew...

    Orange Blossoms in beer

    Has anyone used actual orange blossoms in the boil? Would that give flavor at all? Thinking about using the blossoms from a buddy's tree after they bloom in a wheat beer. Thoughts...
