    Stillwater Classique Clone?

    Finally tapped this keg! Final recipe was 5.5G based on 80% efficiency with water adjusted roughly to 'light and hoppy' according to brewer's friend. OG: 1.040 FG: 1.003 ABV: 4.8% IBU: 20 SRM: 2 5 lbs pilsner malt 1/2 lb carapils 1/2 lb bonlander munich 1/2 lb rice flakes 1/2...

    Saison du Tracteur yeast?

    I'd bet theres some clear candi syrup or table sugar too.

    Stillwater Classique Clone?

    Summer is soon upon us and I can barely restrain myself from replacing all the liquid in my diet with Stillwater Classique. Does anyone have a good clone? Between their website and a few interviews I have gleaned that it might be an updated recipe for a beer called National Bohemian, an...

    Saison du Tracteur yeast?

    No idea about the yeast, but I'll vouch for the beers deliciousness. Here in Ontario we get a little bit of TDD on draft and this is always a treat. I do know they dry hop and carbonate very heavily on this one! Happy harvesting.

    Double IPA 2 x 7 Centennial IPA

    Kegged this up a few days ago, extremely happy with the results. Loosely based off of a Ruination clone. Ontario has one hop farm that sells direct to anyone, and based off these juicy green Centennial pellets, they know what's up! Check out www.clearvalleyhops.com. 6.5 G batch (lots of...

    First Lager

    Thanks for the tips! I'll push the ambient up to 48F for fermentation to target 50-52F wort temperature. Same goes for the D-rest. Up to 60F. I was contemplating lagering in the keg, but I don't have enough space. Only two lines and two kegs means I can only have what I have on tap now...

    First Lager

    Hey all, I've been at it for about a year and have finally decided it's lager time. I wanted to start off fairly simple, so I opted for a sort of American Amber Ale to be fermented Lager style. It won't fit any particular style guidelines but it felt like something I might want to drink...

    First Long Term Sour

    Brewed today. Dropped Pilsner Malt to 5 lbs, adjusted IBU's down to 10. Target OG 1.059, hit 1.054 due to a heavy handed top up. Pitched Roeselare only with no starter at 67F. Fermenting at an ambient 70F. Looking forward to tossing in some bottle dregs this evening. Thanks for the advice folks...

    First Long Term Sour

    I'll skip the 3787 in primary. Why bottle with that over Champagne yeast? I was looking forward to a 'free' pitch. Nice avatar by the way, a great tribute for a great artist. Sent from my SGH-I747M using Home Brew mobile app

    First Long Term Sour

    Thanks for the great responses! I'll be sure to keep an eye on the oak level as the beer goes along. I chose the light toast and a small dose in hopes that things wouldn't get out of hand after a year. It's a shame the Goudenband is pasteurized. Ontario, Canada, doesn't see a whole lot of...

    First Long Term Sour

    Laying down my first long term sour sometime over the next week or so. I was hoping to make something along the lines of a sour Belgian Golden. Mashing around 156F. Plan to diversify bugs with a couple good commercial sours (good excuse to consume some of the Liefmans Goudenband and La Trou...

    non alcoholic beer

    Slightly O/T but Erdinger makes a pretty tasty non-alcoholic beer. Their sales rep said they use a unique process, might be worth researching. Sent from my SGH-I747M using Home Brew mobile app

    Any greater toronto area homebrewers?

    Guelph here, but I work in Oakville. There's a club in Cambelleville I believe, but I'm not a member. Sent from my SGH-I747M using Home Brew mobile app

    'Dark n' Stanky' India Brown Ale

    Really excited to have kegged this a few days ago! Aimed for a slightly darker colored, full bodied IPA with piney, resinous hops. Can barely wait to tap in another week and a half. Aiming for rustic, didn't bother with Irish moss or a significant cold crash. Hydrometer samples indicate we...

    New to kegging, faulty regulator?

    I recently switched to kegging and am in the process of carbonating my first brew. I'm not sure what I should or shouldn't be seeing as I go along so I thought I would check in with the experienced keggers on the forum. My setup is a converted fridge with a pass through tap, 4' of beverage...

    Thinking about switching to kegging...

    Thanks for all the help. I recently found someone nearby on kijiji trying to offload a converted fridge with lines (sanke fitted unfortunately), a 5# tank, regulator and one pass through faucet for $200. If everything looks good it will make a good starting point with room for expansion. A pair...

    Thinking about switching to kegging...

    I've been brewing for about six months now and started with a bottling setup. I recently moved to a new place and it's a bit smaller than the old one. I no longer have a laundry sink to wash bottles in and don't really have the room to store all the beer! The bottling process and fiddling with...

    Berliner Weisse Predicament

    I could set it back up in the bath in the upper 70s. See what happens. I'd really like to bottle by next week so it won't conflict with me trying to pack the rest of my life.
