    Three Floyds Brewery

    3 pm saturdays it seems. I mean, it's not a tour for brewers really -- you know the standard "what are the four ingredients for beer" type of deal. But, I enjoyed the POV about the brewery's niche in the greater beer community.

    Three Floyds Brewery

    Yea, the lord admiral nelson was pretty much the exact beer I've been looking for... or maybe I'm just missing ESB's from my time in london. Up until now, I've sworn by Mac and Jack's, but damn I liked the admiral...

    Three Floyds Brewery

    I read something the other day saying that they might start bottling the L. A. Nelson.

    Three Floyds Brewery

    Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I visited my brother in Chicago and Saturday we ventured into Indiana to visit the Three Floyds Brewery. I highly recommend checking them out if you get the chance. Nice people, simply amazing beer, and a great vision. Many breweries make good beer -- but 3F's...

    American Honey

    Anyone tried this bourbon and honey based liqueur? I bought some on impulse, and not being particularly fond of it, except maybe as a digestif, I've started experimenting. Simple deliciousness: 1-2 shots (depending on personal taste) of American Honey Pint of carbonated apfelwein The honey...

    Attack of the Elephant Farts

    False. I had errands to do at Cub. Edit: I lie. That was the other day. Eh, I go to firehouse by impulse.

    Attack of the Elephant Farts

    What'd you guess from the name? lol. Let's just say, it was pretty dumb of me to start the batch in my room. Oh well. Tried the first bottle of centennial blonde yesterday with a friend. "This might be the best beer I ever had," he said. That made me both happy and sad... there be souls which...

    Attack of the Elephant Farts

    I started my first batch of Apfelwein while here at school. It was in my dorm room closet. My room is essentially a concrete box with a window at about 3.5 ft. So, I assume, the air beneath the window was displaced entirely by CO2. My roommate's bed is low enough where he sleeps below the window...

    Apfelwein Bread

    I used Montrachet in the Apfelwein as in the standard recipe. Was in primary for about a month. I don't know if the yeast flavor would be more pronounced with other strains?

    Apfelwein Bread

    I just made two simple french loaves using the yeast cake from my Apfelwein. I used a slurry based on the remains after racking as a substitute for the water called for in the recipe. The whole house smells like apple, and I got a wonderful rise while in the oven. Has a nice hint of apple to...

    Strange find

    The plot thickens.

    Apfelwein cut with Kefir

    I hope to do the same, but I just tried this little mix yesterday and was pleasantly surprised! I imagine fermenting a beer with a starter based on kefir would create a lambic-like quality.

    Apfelwein cut with Kefir

    Deliciously tart, highly alcoholic, a clean finish, and probiotic! If any of you also make kefir, give it a shot. I do 1 part kefir to 2 parts apfelwein.

    Hydrometer breakage

    I broke my first hydrometer today. Why am I so dumb? I was pulling it from a soak of tubing, thief, auto siphon, etc and a tube caught. Slipped and poof, little black pellets everywhere. :( Maybe I could snab a new one and some miscellaneous gear from craigslist... Could use a new propane...

    Rapid airlock activity at 3 weeks

    Plan is to roll up with 5 gallons of Centennial Blonde and 5 gallons of Apfelwein both bottled and ready to go. Hopefully I'll give my friends there a easy introduction to homebrewing (that they hopefully wont forget...), and then have an eager audience for more tasty experiments for the rest of...

    Rapid airlock activity at 3 weeks

    Ok, that makes me more at ease. Although, I do need to bottle in the next week and a half since I'm heading back to school in Minnesota and would rather not drive halfway across the country with carboys full of alcohol.

    Rapid airlock activity at 3 weeks

    I have a batch of Apfelwein which is at the 3 week and 1 day mark in primary. The airlock activity seemed to die down about a week ago, so I opened it up to take a gravity reading, which was sitting right around 1.002. Now it is bubbling quite rapidly -- at least once every 10 seconds. I'm...

    Cold crash in primary?

    I have a centennial blonde in primary on its 8th day. The yeast has settled quite a bit, but there is still a significant haze. A flashlight shinning from the top down reaches through about 1/2 of the carboy. At this point would cold crashing it in primary be a good idea? I was thinking of cold...
