    Beer for cooking

    My Wife uses beer for cooking often, more in the summer than the winter. Since summer is coming up I have been wondering if I could help her out. She is always grabbing my homebrew either from my bottle stash or from the tap and using it in her recipes. She always has to make it go flat and...

    Alaksan Hopothermia

    I just had one of these last night while meeting with my son for a late night hang out at Applbees. I really enjoyed this beer, so much that I want to brew it as soon as I can! However I can't seem to find a recipe for it. Right now I am still brewing extract so I am hoping one of you has a...

    Brew log sheet and/or software

    I am looking for a simple brew log sheet. I have been brewing extract brews and I plan to go to all grain by summer. I would like to be able to log all of my brews in a notebook. I am currently working on one of my own design but I would love to see some others. I am also looking for...

    Better head retention

    I am getting ready to bottle my third batch since I have gotten back into brewing. The first batch had very little foam throughout the batch. Just barely a thin line and made it look like soapy dirty water. It tasted fine, but I got a few strange looks from my friends and relatives. The...

    I think I killed my beer.

    I brewed a batch of Honey Ale on Saturday. Using Wyeast 1056. I knew it was going to be warm yesterday and today and that I would be away for work, so I kept moving a thermometer around the house till I found an area that I though would be nice a cool. The thermometer is a radio shack...

    Converting to all grain

    I am getting all the items together that I need to convert to all grain. Today I picked up a 10 gallon igloo cooler, I scored it from my sister because she is moving to Arkansas. (it has the Lowes logo on it grrrr) I am trying to figure out which way to go for my false bottom. Should I go the...

    Carbonation is too light

    I am not really sure what happend. I bottled an Alaskan Amber Clone using WL1007 yeast and the carbonation turned out very light. I checked a bottle after only a week and it was not carbonated at all but there was a slight fizz but the beer was flat as a board. I then let the bottles sit for...

    How long to clear

    I transferred to my secondary (glass carboy) last Saturday and I really do not think it has cleared all that much in the week that it sat there. When I first transferred it the fermentation kicked off again and I had to install a blow off tube. I am starting to wonder if it will clear any more...

    Cold house

    My house has problems with the heaters. They are just not reliable and the landlord is going to put in a new heating system this summer. Right now we use infrared heaters in the big areas and smaller space heaters in the small rooms. This works ok but it is still not a consistent heat and I...

    Found some more stuff!

    I have been searching the nooks and crannies trying to gather up all of beer gear. The last time I brewed was 8 years ago. We have moved three times since then so the gear has been scattered all over the place. The last few items I found completed my kit and I am ready to brew in two weeks...

    Getting ready for a brew session

    I have been out of brewing for a while. My son came to me one day and said "hey Dad, remember when you used to make beer?" "Yea" I said. "Why did you stop" he asked, "well son life got busy trying to raise you and keeping a roof over your head and working two jobs since your mom can't work...

    What would you do?

    I have an older Acme mini fridge. This thing is great and I have never had any problems with it. I want to use it for kegs but it has a box style freezer unit. There is not enough space below it to fit 5 gallon kegs. I have thought about trying to bend the unit down or try to open up the box...

    3 gallon corny ball locks

    I have two 3 gallon corny ball lock legs in great condition. I never use them but I have hung onto them for years. I am in need of a new regulator for my CO2 bottle and funds are kinda low right now. So I was thinking about taking the kegs to the brew shop and see if I could trade them for a...

    Dead regulator

    I have not used my kegging equipment for over 6 years. So I have a couple questions... I know my CO2 bottles are long past their test dates. Are they now useless or can I still exchange them? I also remember that my gauges and or regulator leaked and I think replacing it would just be the best...
