    recipe suggestions

    I’ve made a few batches of apfelwein and graff, and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on a cider recipe to try next. Everyone enjoys the graff, but even after 6+ months of aging the apfelwein made me feel like I was handing out prison wine. Some of the woodchuck clones in the recipe...

    Natural gas setups

    Do we have a wiki or any sticky pages on for using natural gas for brewing? I’m looking for an example of a natural gas fired boil kettle for 5-10 gallon batches, but searching around the forums there are a lot of articles that vary wildly in usefulness and most are dead ends. So far I’ve...

I’ve washed and reused my safale dry yeast before and read...

    recipe feedback

    Looking to get some feedback on the recipe I brewed this weekend. I was hoping for hoppy pale ale that’s not too bitter, but I’m not sure how this will turn out. Also, this was my first time brewing with spring water instead of tap water and using a 1:1 ratio between gallons of water and lbs...

    Sour beer recipe

    After reading through Papazian’s “Sour mash\extract beers…” section I wanted to try brewing a sour beer and was wondering if anyone could share a recipe or suggestions. I took a look through the recipe database, but I didn’t see any extract recipes. I’ve been brewing with pretty good results...
