    Beligian Wit Orange Chicken

    Slovenian Celeia Hops

    So our supplier at work sent us a box of these hops. Says it is a cross between Savinjski Golding, Aurora and Slovenian wild hops between 5-6%AA, but our box says 2.8%AA. Of course I don't know what those others are like either. I've been thinking of bringing home a couple oz's and brewing a...

    Homebrew Black & Tan

    I've tried it before and it didn't work, but now I have two beers with FGs that are different enough to pour a very nice black and tan. I have an Imperial Porter with an FG of 1.018 and a Pale Ale with an FG of 1.013. The pale is a little darker in the photo because a little porter is...

    It's Growing Time!

    It's been in the 80s for a few days (except today) and hasn't been below freezing for several weeks. Today I saw that my Willamette has grown up through the mulch, which means it's a good 6 inches already. My last season was cut really short, so hopefully I will have plenty of time to get a...

    I'm Going To Beer College!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's like Homer Simpson's dream some true! I will soon be starting a course at Siebel. I just got home from work and checked my e-mail, and found a message with my registration papers and links to order books.

    F-ing Hydrometers

    Shattered glass all over the counter... damnit! Why do these ****ers break so damn easily. Bump them into any hard surface and it's like they're filled with explosives, they just shatter all over the place like a lightbulb. Don't these people know that we drink before handling those things...

    Finally a Brewery Logo

    I have been thinking about it, and talking about it for a couple years now. I have made labels, but all have been lacking a logo. Well, now I finally have a logo. It's my first shot at it, and it is likely to change, but here's the rough draft. I really think it will look nice around the...

    Schwarzbier May the Schwarz-bier With You

    :ban: This is my first gold medal beer, in my second competition. I have been working with this recipe in some form since I began brewing. It was originally extract, but no longer really resembles the Black Lager of the past. Hops used were only because I couldn't get anything German, but...

    The Smell of Autolysis

    Smells like a mixture of dirty ballsack, vomit and a hint of mildew thrown in. I went to the LHBS a few days ago and got a batch of beer. As I was checking out, the gut says to me that they have a special going on, and I can get 2 packets of saflager for the price of one. I was going to use...
