    Another one bites the dust

    Just finished up my 4th all grain. They just seem to get easier and easier. This was my first time using anything other that barley(I was making a wit.) I'm glad I read up on here to put some rice in to keep the mash from sticking. Boy was it hard to stir. It felt like I was mixing cement...

    Wheat

    Brussels

    I just got home from a wonderful weekend trip to Brussels. I managed to visit the Cantillon brewery, which was one of the oldest and more intimate brewery tours I have ever done, not to mention that the owners/operators where extremely nice people and even gave us an umbrella when we left...

    First all grain bottled and labled. *caution nudity*

    Threw these together last night with a friend of mine. They fit the bombers perfectly. Shi*storm is what I'm calling my operation. I know it's not the cleanest of names but I work on the flightline in the air force.....my vocab isn't the cleanest. CHEERS!!!:tank:

    quick Thank you!

    hey guys I just wrapped up my first all grain and I had a blast. I was nervous the whole time, we were fighting off rain, I batch sparged instead of fly sparging because of my mistake not preparing. But in the end there is a carboy in the spare bedroom bubbling away and I have no doubt it will...

    Good First Recipe?

    Hey guys I finally have all of my all grain equipment together and in a couple of weeks I plan to do my first brew.
