    Today's recipe!

    Yoop, What Lipase did you use? I have calf lipase (which is recommended for feta) or kid lipase which is recommended by the person who wrote up that recipe. I don't know which one to choose.

    Guinness, yechhhhhh!!!!

    I still enjoy Guinness in the states. I'm just saying that it tastes more like homebrew in Ireland.

    Guinness, yechhhhhh!!!!

    They may say Guinness is Guinness,but if you never had a pint poured in Dublin then you never had true Guinness stout.

    Faucets directly connected to kegs

    yeah, I wasn't gonna keep the gas-in line connected. I was just gonna attach them to an already charged keg. It's mostly so I can pull pints from kegs in queue while waiting for space to free up in the kegerator.

    Faucets directly connected to kegs

    Awesome. Thanks for the sarcasm. No need to be a ******. I did google it. I guess I didn't have the right combination of words to get that result. I kept getting faucets and clamps and shanks and disconnects as separate pieces. Mostly I'm interested if it's possible to DIY? Thanks...

    Faucets directly connected to kegs

    Anyone know where I can get attachments to connect my faucets directly to the liquid out connect or know what's needed to DIY this?

    Wine from fresh juice

    This is a total newb question. I've only just started making wine and have been taking baby steps. I would totally get whole grapes and do it that way but I was under the impression I needed a press to do this. How does one, efficiently, get the juice out of grapes without a press?

    VA group bulk grain buy

    ut oh. I didn't know I had to specify yet. I definitely don't want 2-row. 1x TF-GPRM (Golden Promise) 1x BZ-WHT (Wheat Malt) 2x BZ-PILZ (Pilsen) 1x BZ-VIEN (Vienna) I got $169.15. Let me know if that's right. We get the 2,000# price since 42 bags hits that range, correct?

    Ireland Next Week

    I'm sure it's been asked many times before... Im headed to Dublin, Cork, Galway, and Cong next week and plan to go to Bull and Castle, Porterhouse, Guinness, and Jamison. Is there any other beer places I "need" to go to while there? Also, is there any must have bottles of Whisky...

    cutting rhizomes

    It might be really easy and I might be overly worried about doing it, but I haven't been able to find anything illustrating or instructing on how to clip some rhizomes. What and where do I cut from the rootballs?

    crazy idea?

    So after a few beers I've had an idea, which is always dangerous. Could Victory be used as a base malt to add a nice strong/solid nutty flavor to a nut brown or even as a SMaSH? Would it be too sweet or cloying or too overwhelmingly nutty?

    Results from juice, yeast and sugar experiments

    Kevin. It's Pete. Thanks again for having us over for that tasting. It was great. The wheat yeasts definitely mesh well with cider. Those were some pretty tasty ciders. I have a question though. How come you never use brown sugar? Does it leave a weird lingering flavor? With that cider...

    Made me a Pineapple mead today

    I've been dying to make a pineapple mead. You must keep us updated on how the yeasties mind the high acidic must. Also, on how the taste progresses.

    Vintner's Harvest

    Anyone ever use this? I saw an Elderberry can at the brew shop and I'm curious if it's any good. I love me some Elderberry wine.

    Nice article on Thomas Jefferson (and wife) as brewers - late 18th/early 19th century

    explains why they have a few hop plants growing in the gardens at Monticello. I'm always tempted to take a bag out there in August and sneak some cones and make a TJ beer.
