    Would you brew in the bathroom?

    I plan to brew sometimes (winter and other weather conditions) in my shower. There is an exhaust fan, a drain and a water supply. I'll be using a 110 ebiab setup so power is easy as well.

    British Lager Yeast?

    Recommend a yeast to use, please

    Sorry for the late response, I've been way. Thanks for the input so far. I've never bought Stout malt before so had to look it up, it seems to be similar to Maris Otter and the Brown Malt is like 65 lovibond. So I was planning on using just these two malts. Nothing resembling a stout. I'm...

    Recommend a yeast to use, please

    Prize for a winning beer was 10lbs Stout Malt, 1lb Brown and an ounce of Calypso Hops. I plan on brewing a beer using these winnings, curious what yeast you'd recommend? I usually use White Labs. Thanks

    To those that participate or used to participate in competitions

    That's encouraging! Thanks. I've run out of the beer that I would've liked to submit to another competition. I certainly agree that the comments (and potential swag) are the best part of competing.

    Are the comments close? If I had more of a recent entry on hand, I'd submit it to another comp to see if the judges had the same comments. I wonder how flight positioning effects scoring and comments.

    I'd like to hear stories about your experiences. Do you commonly enter the same beer to multiple competitions? What criteria do you use to determine this? If you quit entering competitions - why? Thanks!

    Am I following this correctly?

    Thanks for all the input, I appreciate it and will certainly consider doing a kettle sour. However, can anyone comment if the process I posted of sour mashing was correct?

    Am I following this correctly?

    Thinking of brewing a sour, maybe Gose or Berliner. After reading lots, I still have lots of questions. It seems a good entry to the sour brewing would be sour mash. I'm going to list my understanding of sour mashing and please let me know if I understand it or not. 1. Mash in normally...
