    What I did for beer today

    Moved some of the Irish Red I brewed last month to the bottle. I usually keg the first five gallons and keg the rest. As I had been consuming 2L soda bottle samples I thought I may have removed more than I thought. Bottling over three cases is not what I intended. Beginning to plan my steam...

    Every batch I make is sour

    Maybe it is the prehopped kit. Try an extract from a different source company. Then brew it only after you have sanitized per above.

    What came in the mail for you today?

    I wanted to try out some brewing gloves. To get free shipping I socked up on supplies I go through regularly. I will brew a 12 gallon batch and keg five. I then bottle the rest using carb tabs right from my conical.

    What to do with standard upright fridge/freezer

    I converted a refrigerator into a fermentation chamber years ago. I added a stand of roughly 15 inches or so. Upon that secured stand sits my conical. Once I am ready to package my finished beer that extra height allows me to bottle and fill kegs via gravity. I have a computer fan that sits on...

No longer can that type of delivery service be expected. I lucked out. But it was clearly luck. Everything...
