    s-04 or US-05 for a Texas Brown Ale (Brown IPA)

    I find S04 to be a great yeast. It should leave the beer with a little more sweet and malty flavor then S05 will, and I love that yeast as well. As to killing the hops? I don't think you have anything to worry about with either yeast killing your hop flavor or bitterness.

    Chocolate Banana Stout

    You could also use cocoa nibs to really get a chocolate flavor....

    NEW StrangeBrew Elsinore Thread

    I use the same temp probes and xlr connectors that are used on The Electric brewery build, in fact I purchased them from them. My question, as I know nothing about Raspberry Pi, but am intrigued, and about ready to re-do my stand as I want to go to 100% electric, will those probes work with a...

    Desperate plea for Keggle help! (Rust??)

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to respond and at least look at the thread. I feel a little bit better now. Think when I get home I will chill my Beer Mail and start a Phosphoric Acid bath in the bottom of the keg for a few minutes. Will report back if it goes haywire!

    Desperate plea for Keggle help! (Rust??)

    Thanks for the replies everyone, perhaps this may help. The top was cut off with an angle grinder and the keg was pre-filled half way with water before cutting began. The keg was just purchased from a brewery and was dirty inside. To my knowledge it has never been exposed to a flame as...

    Desperate plea for Keggle help! (Rust??)

    Ok, I shot a video of this last night, so if you watch the video you can see a good example of what I am talking about. Start watching at about 2:20 to about 3:00 if you do not want to hear me babble. I have a SS keg that I have cut open, installed a sight glass and spigot. Once I cleaned...

    Video me and the kid did of All grain Batch

    To me, this is NEVER a bad thing :P I noticed a jump as well in efficiency once I had my own grain mill. I haven't adjusted my recipes for it yet as I am still going for consistency. Once I make a batch a few times and I am hitting the same numbers then I will adjust to my new efficiency.

    Video me and the kid did of All grain Batch

    Good job! I've always called Perle - Pearl hops. Another thing I like to do, especially since I am outside, is when I put my strike water into the MLT, I put the top on and let the cooler absorb some of the heat. Then I will add my grain and get to my mash temp. Good to see another SW...

    Need help with a Citra APA

    +1 I concur and would also point out, IMO, only dry hop with leaf with Citra. 1 oz for say 7-10 days is good, 2 oz I think is better. Stay away from dry hoping with pellets when it comes to Citra. My experience, as I have done both several times, the pellets lend a "cat piss" smell, rather...

    My Irish Red Ale

    Your grain bill is fairly light, at only 8lbs. I would say you could do .25 Carapils to achieve a decent mouthfeel. Really it depends on what you are looking for. I think most of us see Irish red, not a heavy beer. You did say you were looking for a seasonal (Winter) beer, maybe you want it...

    Ripping the guts out of a mini fridge

    I have tore apart three mini refrigerators now. One, a Sanyo, had the same sort of lines that you are describing. Not only did the coils run on both sides, but it also ran across the top (obviously, a closed system). These lines are RIDICULOUSLY thing and fragile. If you do not have to take...

    5 Gal Sanke Style keg

    I was given one of these, and wondering, do they have much monetary value?
