    The Answer Was So Simple, duh ..

    if you are making a clone beer, and you change the recipe, then dont expect it to taste anything like what you are trying to clone. People put a lot of effort into tweeking there clones to be spot on.

    60 Min/90 Min Boil Question

    your boil rate wont very. it will always be consistent. go off of that, as just boiling till your target is inaccurate. For one, your volume will go down as the wort cools. and then adding things, like a chiller, will screw with that as well. Your pot will boil off the same amount per hour...

    Too cold for wort chiller?

    i just brewed a barleywine the other day, it was around 8 degrees f. I kept my hose in the bathtub up until i needed it. Ran out, hooked up, and chilled away. No problems, but the hose froze within 2 min. of me shutting it off. I live on a farm, and hooked my hose up to the steel spiket out in...

Just use your down time during the boil to clean everything. use your down time during the mash to prep for the boil. make starsan, measure out additions, get your fermenter ready. Im...

    Apfelwein from 2014 any good?

    i just opened a barley wine that has been b ottled for 6 years. Beer/cider does not go bad in bottles. Especially an apfelwine. It will only get better. let it sit a few more years.

    Ever felt like just not brewing?

    happens to me quite often. Since it takes all day, i try to do 3-4 things at the same time to kill the dead time you get on a brew day. It can easily become over whelming and end up being a long, arduous day. My last brew day consisted of brewing, smoking bacon, smoking fish, working on the pig...

    Help on conical fermenter

    you can get a fast ferment much cheaper on amazon. Under $100 that right there would make me choose this over all the others. Half the price for the exact same thing, sounds good to me. Plus the SS bucket does not have a valve on the bottom of the conical. Just a drain valve up from the...
