    FotHB XIV: Lambic Pentameter

    @DrGMG sorry I havent had much time to relax lately. I have enjoyed both of the IPAs but sadly have not had time to sit down and crack into the other 3. Maybe I should pencil in some time this Friday :)

    STC-1000 heater output not working

    What are you feeding into the relay? With how I have mine wired, I have line voltage into the relay so when it turns on it outputs the same, line voltage. I have mine wire as it is below. Line is Maroon, Neutral is Blue and Ground is Green(120VAC).

    Fellowship of the Home Brew XIII: Never Give up, Never Surrender!

    Enjoying an @Atlantatopher Amber Eyes after a late night of working. This is a great amber, perfectly balanced, definitely crushable. I haven’t had a beer I’ve disliked so far. Sorry it’s taking so long to get through them 😁.

    Show us your campers!

    Still mid conversion but been using it all summer! Just need to get cabinets installed, tint windows and finish the bathroom. 3-way fridge, 400W of solar, mounted inverter generator and a diesel fueled heater. Wish I had more pics to share, had to steal this one from the wifes instagram.

    Candi Syrup, before/mid/end of boil?

    Im also in the "end of fermentation" boat. I treat candi syrup as any other flavor adjunct that I choose to spend money on. I wouldn't add vanilla beans or fruit to the boil so why would I add an expensive syrup to the boil? I'd like to think that subtle flavors are preserved better as has been...

    My IC's lines are touching the top of the boil kettle, what do I do?

    Silicone can take pretty high heat(600°F) so as long as they arent in direct contact with the flames they should be fine. I have my tubing hooked up for recirc during the last 10 minutes of my boil to sanitize my plate chiller and have not had any problems in the last two years. *Quick edit to...

    FotHB XIV: Lambic Pentameter

    I didnt get any hints of oxidation. Even though the pic looks like it may be oxidized I promise its just my old phone/poor basement lighting.

    Found this hiding in the back of the fridge! Pleasant surprise to end my brew night and probably my favorite out of everything I recieved(still have the quad to drink though). Pm incoming @Atlantatopher 😁

    FotHB XIV: Lambic Pentameter

    Finally got to crack open my first @DrGMG. Sorry for the awful pic(not at all the color it is in person) but this WCIPA is awesome. I’m usually not a fan of any IPA but every one I’ve gotten so far in FotHB has me rethinking my view on them 😁.

    12 Beers of Christmas 2021 Edition

    Ill be rebrewing the Juniper Rye Bock this week sometime 😢. Should have plenty of time to mature still. First batch is going to live its life as a higher proof beverage. Has an odd off-flavor that is a blend between sour and metallic with a weird bite after swallowing. Ill keep it around to see...

    Maple Wine - Discuss?

    I made a 6 gallon batch of maple wine with syrup I collected myself(end of season so darker than anything you will find in stores), I followed TOSNA 2 protocols using Belgian Strong Ale yeast. Turned out fantastic. I aimed for a final gravity of 1.005, depending on the yeast hitting its...

    FotHB XIV: Lambic Pentameter

    Getting the cucumber sour started while enjoying @Atlantatopher house-spouse rice lager! This beer is fantastic. Definitely could put a few of these down.
