    Rebel Brewer

    I've placed 8 separate orders with RebelBrewer this year and the service has been terrific. The prices are very competitive, and they have terrific turnaround time. I placed my last two orders on Monday nights, received a FedEx shipping confirmation on Tuesday, and delivered Thursday (Going...

    Mash Temperature too high

    Brewing BierMunchers Sierra Nevada clone and my HLT was accidentally at 180 instead of 160 (temp probe didn't go in far enough so the burner didn't shut off) and I recirculated for about 10 minutes. Took a look at the mash temp and it was at 169 (Target of 154). Is this salvageable?"

    My portable display with 3 taps

    Built this out of maple the past two weeks. The shanks/faucets are through a piece of Redwood that I had in the garage. Above the faucets is plywood that I painted with chalkboard paint. I just need to varnish the frame. Kegs will be in a garbage can with ice

    Should I be using a starter?

    Two questions on yeast starters. 1. I have never used them and haven't had any issues using Wyeast smack packs, any reasons I should switch to using starters? 2. I do 10 gallon batches, but split up my batch into two 6.5g better bottles. What would be the best way to do a starter and make...

    Just force carbed for the first time

    Just force-carbed my first keg but did not hear any sound through the regulator. The gauge was showing the PSI I wanted and the valve was open to the keg but I didn't get any noise. When I was done I released the pressure through the second valve on the regulator and it definitely was flowing...

    It's BREW DAY

    Brewing an Extract Pale Ale right now. Just pulled out my bag of grains from steeping and getting my water back up to a boil. Wanted to brew yesterday for 777 but just didn't get around to picking up stuff. Got the yankee game on TV, the pot on the stove, and my homebrew brown ale, so life...

    First brew a succcess

    Well just popped open a bottle of my first homebrew (English Brown Ale, 1 week in primary, 3 weeks conditioning in bottles) and it came out great. I have been so swamped with work these past three weeks (16-17 hour days) that I haven't even had a chance to get my second brew going. Hopefully...
