    Grain Screwup

    So I was having a few homebrews last week and ordering grains for two separate brews from Texas Brewing. Turns out it must have been one too many because I accidentally placed the two pounds of Vienna malt on my second grain bill, which is a 100% MO pale ale. Now I have 12# of MO and 2# of...

    34/70 fermentation help

    I'm brewing my first lager this morning (a Marzen) and using two packets of 34/70. I know I've read before about pitching at 50F and holding there for two weeks before raising to 60F for a d-rest, but I can't seem to find it with a search . I was wondering what the forum's thoughts were on this...

    Leaky Faucet

    Total nube question but here it goes; SWMBO got me a kegging kit for Christmas from Keg Connection. It came with the CMB V3S taps which they recommended. However I'm pouring my first pints after building my keezer and I'm getting a leak right by the tap handle. Can someone let me know...

    BCS ESB Recipe

    Trying to put together Jamil's ESB recipe and he calls for "English Pale Ale LME (3.5L). I don't have a LHBS so I'm looking online and all I can't find any. Does anyone have a recommended substitute? I've seen MO LME, Alexanders Pale Malt Syrup, and Muntons Light Malt Syrup readily available...

    Selecting Kegging Setup

    So I've been brewing since last Christmas and the wife just asked what I wanted for this year... so obviously I turned my thoughts to kegging. I'm thinking to start small with a Keezer conversion and 2 kegs with another line for carbing. Everything I've read has said to go ahead and begin with...

    Strong banana flavor with Belle Saison

    So I've brewed two different saisons and used belle saison yeast. Both have come off with strong banana flavored. Now the most recent one was just transferred to secondary last night and I will leave in secondary for another 6-8 weeks before bottle aging for at least that long. I'm hoping the...

    Country Boy Cougar Bait

    Absolutely love this beer and would like to try to few it at home. Does anyone have a good clone recipe? Country Boy won't say much about the recipe, and all I have is "mostly base malt with few unfermentables." They also say the only hops are willamette and cascade in the boil with no dry hop...

    Noob Brewer here looking to brew first IPA and first beer wholly from scratch ( at least as far as I know) and I'd like some feedback on the recipe.
