    Kettle Sour Help

    I want to make a Kettle Sour. I know some purists are against it but when people cut it down for being cheap and easy. I thought "Cheap? Easy? That sounds like me." So not planning on hitting a style or cloning anything. If you're in Canada Russell's The Kettle Sour is about what I'm looking...

    Beer Engine and Cask Questions

    Really love British cask conditioned ales. If I went whole hog and got a pin and a beer engine I have some questions. 1. Most beer engines I see for home brewers are 1/4 pint pulls. It's going to be mostly me drinking it so I'm going to have a CO2 breather on the pin (CAMRA be damned) and...

    Questions abut 100% Nelson Sauvin APA

    I just got 2 oz. of Nelson Sauvin. To my knowledge I’ve never had a beer with this hop so I was thinking of making an APA with it. Not a SMaSH but a fairly simple grain bill and then 100% Nelson Sauvin. Thinking 20 g at 60 minutes, 20 g at 20 minutes and 20 g at 5 minutes. I’d like to do this...

    Anyone Have a Recipe for Belhaven Best?

    On my recent trip to Scotland whenever I couldn't get any thing on cask I was drinking Belhaven Best on nitro and really came to like it. So much so it pushed me over the top to get a nitro set up. So next up is an attempt to clone Belhaven Best. I see recipes for their 80/- and St. Andrews...

    OK I've got my stout faucet installed. I've got my English Summer Ale at 55 F and ~ 1.2 volumes of carbonation. I've got my Beer Gas cylinder down in the car waiting to go home. (not in the sun). My question is what pressure do I push the beer at? Oh normal Danby 4.2 cu. ft. conversion...

    Need Ideas for Serving Real Ale out of a Pin

    I'd like to get into real ale and serve it out of a pin at the correct temperature. I'm either not applying myself or I don’t have enough friends but I can’t go through a pin in 2 to 3 days so I’ll need a cask rebreather. I don’t have a cellar so I’m going to have to keep it artificially...

    Looking for a Candian Connection for a Cask for Real Ale

    Kind off kicking around the idea of getting a Pin one day to make real Real Ale. Watched a BTV a few months ago that showed the process really well with the keystone bung and the shiv's etc. Well the BTV advertising worked because now I'm ready to plunk down the money for a Pin and the...

    Need Help Developing an English Summer Ale

    I'd like to make an English Summer Ale for summer. Only problem is I've never actually had an English Summer Ale. I've read the Wiki which says it's like an English Blonde. Only problem I've never had an English Blonde. It also says it's sort of half way between a Bitter and an American...

    Holy $h!t - Westvleteren available in Canada

    Just stumbled across this at my hometown bottle shop: "Abbey of Saint Sixtus of Westvleteren brews are considered the rarest in the world because, as they say on their site, 'The Westvleteren "Trappist" is sold exclusively at the abbey store, and only after having made a reservation by...

    Yeah Magpie is Back (Sort of)

    One of the beers that got me into HomeBrewing was Magpie Ale from Big Rock. (A Rye Ale.) Specifically the lack of it. About five years ago I went looking for Magpie and found out they weren't making it any more. And I said "F this I'm making my own." And thus began the obsession. Now...

    I was listening to Dr. Charlie Bamforth talking about Real Ale (among other things) on the Sunday Session and decided my next beer was going to be an attempt at a Real Ale. I can figure out a general recipe for an Ordinary or Best Bitter but I still have some specific questions. Dr...

    Question Maintaining Mash Temp in a Direct Fired RIMS?

    After two plus years using a converted cooler and the stove top for AG I just got two 10 Boilermakers and Camp Chef burners to go outside. I use one of the Boilermakers with a false bottom as my MLT. First brew last weekend I initially hit my strike temp spot on (with BeerSmith’s help) but...
