    Tight Scew on regulator!!

    Sorry I have not been on here in a while, moving back in with the inlaws put a stop to my homebrewing. But I can't take it any more, so I started getting things back together, when I realized the screw on the regulator would not screw in and out. I bought it from Austin Homebrew about a year...

    Swmbo thinks this will be better.

    Well, over the last few months things have gotten worse. The money issue has gotten worse. I make decent money, and swmbo makes aight money, but things have been going down hill for a while now. We don't own luckily just rent and the landlord really likes us, that's why we get a steal on our...

    Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

    Leaving in about 8 hours to go to Busch Gardens. Never been, and frankly can't wait. Anyone else been, and can tell me what I need to checkout. The Oktoberfest thing, and the beer gardens sounds cool. But whatelse?

    Dry hop with Williamette?

    I have an ipa i am getting ready to dry hop. It was bittered with Magnum, and aroma comes from cascades. Was debating on dry hopping with Willamette's, or just use cascades. The cascades are in pellet form, and the will's are whole leaf that's the reason I am thinking to go with the will's...

    Water flow meter?

    I am thinking about making a brew stand, but I just happened to have an idea. I want to be able to hookup a water hose, that flows through a water filter and then through a "water flow meter" into my HLT. So I can just hookup and watch the meter until it's where I need it. I need something...

    Bayou Classic Sp10 Burner Leaking!!!

    This is the second time I have used this burner, last week being the first. When I hooked it up today, and turned on the propane, it comes straight out the little vent hole in the red part of the top. If I cover that hole, and turn the burner valve open, it comes out the burner. Has anyone...

    Old School Budvar????

    My father-in-law, is an old school brewer. At least he has not brewed in about 10-15 years, and my wife said that he never brewed anything that was good. He comes over all the time and tries my beers, and loves them. But everytime he keeps asking me to make him some "budvar" Finally this...

    Microvestivus in Roanoke VA.

    Anyone going to the microfestivus, or has ever been. This will be my first year going. But I love to sample beers, and get ideas. And hopefully meet a few homebrewers.

    Raw Wheat berrys.

    I was at this country store, out in the boonies today, and saw the golden wheat berries. Whole wheat. I was wondering if I could use this in a beer, kinda like white wheat? Would I need to use 6 row to get better converstion? Would it taste good? Should I just try it? It was really cheap...

    Barley wine????

    This is a barley wine recipe, I came up with a couple months back before I started all my reading on the subject, and before I cam to hbt. I kinda wanted it sweet, and not extremely hoppy, so this is what I came up with. By the way, in my early days I didn't know better, so I mashed at 158...

    My first Kriek Lambic!!!

    I just went and forked out 7 dollars for my first Kriek, and my first lambic, and this thing is awesome. Kinda sour, kinda sweet with a very silky mouth feel. Cherry is very pronounced, not like eating cherries but still nice. SWMBO said it was good, and she will not drink beer. I just need...

    Dry yeast in the freezer?

    I think I already know the answer to this, but will it hurt dry yeast to be in the freezer. I store all my hops in the freezer part of my kegerator, and all my liquid yeast in the fridge part, but limited to space in the fridge, cause of the four kegs. I don't think it will hurt it but...

    Not quite a bottle bomb......

    Made some hard lemonade a couple of months ago, and bottled with coopers carb tabs. Been in my brew closet since, and was organizing it tonight, when i thought i would try one. Picked it up, cleared nicely. Grabbed my bottle opener, and "pow", as i was starting to pop it, it did it itself...

    Dry yeast starters?

    This is just hypothetical..... But could you make a starter with dry yeast. I mean i know it would work, but would it help start fermentation quicker? Or would it cause off flavors or anything? Could you make slants from dry yeast? I know that's its cheap, and would probably never make...

    Oh what a dumb thing I did.......

    Well last night, i took all my taps, shanks, and hoses off my kegerator, for a thorough cleaning. Well tonight, I rinsed and dried all the pieces off, and put my shanks back in, and then opened it up, and out the beer nuts back on, and then hooked up the hoses to the shanks, and the proceeded...
