    My RV-based brewing adventures

    Hi all, I hope this is the right forum for this. My family and I are moving into a fifth wheel trailer and selling the house! But I sure dont want that to end my homebrew career. I thought I'd make a YouTube channel to share the fun. I'll do some how to videos, and share tips on conquering some...

    Considering a foray into BIAB

    I have successfully brewed 8 good batches of extract after 2 near misses. A few ambers, porters, stouts, a wit and an IPA. The wit was a Brewer's best kit and had the steep to convert step, which, sounds to me like a partial mash? The concept of gaining more control over my beer and not just...
