    Why was it illegal to brew in the summer in Germany?

    In German, lager also means storage, as in storing in a warehouse. Many breweries still store beer underground in cellars and/or caves in the sides of hills. Erlangen has a beer festival on a hill that has a single road snaking all over it. They serve beer from "beer caves" as well as the...

    Show us your Mead in a photo!!!

    Here's a pic of a batch of Charlie Papazian's Barkshack Ginger Mead I made in January 2006. Almost 15 years old! It came in at 7.6% ABV. It is smooth and dry, but not tart in any manner. The ginger is still present, but on the lighter side. It still tastes great! In comparison, Canada Dry...

    Best way to reduce gravity after the fact?

    Just to add a point, I find that when I boil outside in high humidity my boil off is greater than .5 gal every half hour. That's what brought me to adding water to lower the post-boil gravity.

    Anybody use Omega Hefeweizen Yeast? OLY-021

    I know it's an old thread, but I just check mine...I got 10 gallons of non-drinkable HW. So far, I've used Omega 5 times and every batch has failed. I just dumped 5 gals of Belgian Blonde Ale about 15 minutes ago.

    A man wakes up in the hospital bandaged from head to foot. The doctor comes in and says, "Ah, I see you've regained consciousness. Now, you probably won't remember, but you were in a huge pile-up on the freeway. You're going to be okay, you'll walk again and everything, however, your penis...
