    Too hot...Now what?

    I brewed an ESB, which I fermented with Danstar Windsor yeast. Due to poor planning, the beer ended up fermenting at 75-77 degrees. By the time I was able to get the temperature down, the yeasties were all done. As expected, the beer is very estery and bit alcohol-y. What's the best way to...

    Central/South American brewpubs?

    So I´m currently on an extended trip through Central and South America and I was wondering, does anybody (for the love of god!) know of any brewpubs in this region of the world? For the most part, all of the beer here is of the flavorless lager variety (and is mostly owned by SABMiller :()...

    draining speed

    I mash in a 5 gallon Rubbermaid round cooler with an SS braid and batch sparge. Do I need to be concerned about how quickly I drain the wort. If so, what speed is appropriate?

    Another primary to secondary question

    So I'm having one of those beginner's moments. I'm about 5 or 6 batches into my brewing career, thinking I'm getting how it works, and then I read through a few threads here and realize I'm missing something. So this is about when to rack from primary to secondary. I thought that you rack...

    PM in a 10 gallon MLT?

    After a few months of extract brewing I'm feeling like I need to move on to PM and then AG, so I'm going to build an MLT (good god, when did I start talking like this?). At any rate, I'm going to get a round cooler for the MLT. I will be making 5 gallon batches, and very likely some of my...
