    Double IPA Stone Enjoy By IPA

    Just had my first pour of this a few days ago and it's a definite winner. We made a gigantic wlp007 starter but didn't finish quite as dry as I would have liked, about 1.012. Even so, a fantastic recipe. I had a bottle of actual Enjoy By 4/20 that we did a side-by-side with on 4/19, and the...

    Firestone Walker Union Jack IPA

    Gotta say I agree. I was all stoked to try the DFH IPAs and they honestly left a lot to be desired, particularly compared to the style of IPA you get all over San Diego. I'll take a Ballast Point or Stone any day of the week.

    good brewing iPhone app?

    BrewPal is right up there as far as one of the best bucks I've spent in pursuit of homebrewing.

    As a Systems Admin: This is my kind of beer

    That sounds like it would go great in my "#include <beer.h>" pint glass. ;)

    Well Looky Here... SN 30th Anniversary Stout

    FWIW, they are actually 25oz bottles, so you're getting more than you bargained for! ;) I bought two, drank one and will age one for a year or so. I thought it was very good. More hop profile than I was expecting, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Growing hops with dogs???

    My dog hasn't shown any interest in my hops whatsoever. Also consider that the vast majority of cones will grow well off the ground. Can't imagine this would be a problem.

    What do you do with the spent grain?

    Dogs are opportunistic eaters and have simple stomachs that will digest just about anything. Regardless of what the raw foodies will have you believe, small quantities of grain isn't gonna hurt them and certainly isn't "lousy" for their digestive system.

    SWMBO vs. Homebrew

    I have found the key to keeping my wife happy with my brewing is to keep a constant supply of apfelwein available for her and her friends. She likes the beer but loves the apfelwein. ;) That and moving the brewing outside.

    Growing Hops in planters

    FWIW, I planted some cascade and willamette last year in large ceramic containers and they did about as well as everyone says first year plants will do. They sat outside all winter with a layer of leaf mulch over them, and as of a couple days ago have broken ground again. I plan on letting...

    Obligatory First AG Thread w/ pics

    Finally got all the equipment together to give all-grain brewing a try. Like many others around here, decided to make a batch of Edwort's Haus Pale Ale for my maiden voyage. In all, things went really smoothly. No real surprises, and I managed to hit my efficiency and gravity right where I...

    American Pale Ale Bee Cave Brewery Haus Pale Ale

    Just gave this a try for my first AG recipe. Things went great and I hit the OG right on, 1.052. Realized after I got home that the Cascade hops I bought were not as potent as those used in the original recipe (5.4% AA vs 6.6% AA quoted in the recipe), so I added ~1/4oz of magnum hops that I...

    Cheap & Easy 10 Gallon Rubbermaid MLT Conversion

    I finally got mine put together today and it works great. Not leaking a drop. After spending days searching in vain for a 5/8" SS washer, it dawned on me to try and find a "close enough" metric equivalent. Found a 16mm stainless steel fender washer at the first place I tried (Ace Hardware)...

    Beers with pop top (pry off) bottles

    It's pretty easy to tell. A couple hints: * Twist off caps almost always have some sort of indicator - an arrow or the word "twist" or something to that effect * Twist-off caps have visible "threads" on the sides, running at an angle to the bottle itself. Of course, if you're in the...

    BMC Flowchart

    The older years might be selling for $600 on the second hand market, but you can get a 2009 bottle on ebay for less than $250. My brother paid $240 for his...
