    SWMBO is a brewer now

    After years of helping me with some of mine, the Mrs is brewing her first batch- a big, hoppy red ale inspired by Velvet Hammer. She has done 90% of the work and I've only helped her with a few things. (I did design the recipe for her. She is still a noob.) This either means she will let me...

    Destiny on XBox One

    If anyone is playing the game, I was thinking of starting a clan for homebrewers. At the very least, it'd be cool to make some zymerologically minded friends on XBox. I'm ShepherdBook74 if you are down to game.

    A tragedy has occurred in the beer universe...

    A few months ago, my son wanted to help me with bottling day. Though I thought we had washed his hands very well and that I observed him carefully in every step, that batch fell victim to a gusher infection. Since I've never had any such problem in ten years, I cannot help but conclude that the...

    Homebrew Clubs and new NHC Rules

    Brewing Confesional

    I've been brewing for ten years, and most of my beers (say 85%) have been extract-based, including many canned kits (doctored up, of course.) Never in that time have I tasted "extract tang" until after Cooper's bought out Mr. Beer. In fact, I've frequently (not on here, I don't think) argued...

    Paying for a membership here...

    ... it is so freakin' worth it! I paid for mine a while back, but I never went into my settings and turned off the ads because I've never really minded them. But last night, I got a wild hair and did it. It makes the forum so much more enjoyable. The header ad is fine- but I never...

    Mirror Pond/ BJCP Guidelines question

    So I picked up a six-pack of Deschutes Mirror Pond last night. It's a truly great beer. But the more I drank it, the more I was bothered by the category it is listed in. The BJCP lists this is a prime commercial example of a category 10A. But in terms of color, abv, and ibus, it could easily...

    Brewers in Midland/Odessa and surrounding towns

    I recently joined Basin Brewers and I'm having a ball. I don't see any other members posting on HTB regularly, so I thought I'd start a thread to get folks into contact with the club. The website (http://basinbrewers.org) is just ok, but to get into contact with the members, there are two other...
