    Hush Puppy Cream Ale

    It is very light and crisp, makes a wonderful hot weather beer that is very drinkable without putting you under the table and with more flavor than a light beer.

    15 Gallon Polarware Brew Kettle with fittings and ball valve

    I have a 15 gallon polarware brew kettle that I have barely used since I have only done 2 10 gallon batches. I am asking 150 since it is in such great condition. Please PM if you are interested or need shipping costs. I would only ask the actual cost to ship to you. Thanks,

    It's done (first batch)

    I really depends how much you drink and what types of beers you like, the heavier the beer the longer the what time. My extract brew time is around 3 hours from beginning to end with a 5 gallon 60 minute boil so i can do two brews in one day pretty easy. That being said when I started brewing...

    It's done (first batch)

    I quickly learned to buy the equipment that I would want and would grow into... saved some major bucks that way even though it was a little more expensive up front. Some of my overspending included buying a 4 gallon kettle followed by a 7 gallon rather than just going to the 10 gallon. From your...

    Don't be afraid to give the beer time in the bottle, there are some great you tube videos of a guy that opens a bottle everyday to show the progression over time and it is worth a watch for the new brewer.

    It's done (first batch)

    For a wheat beer I would let it sit in the secondary for a week. The bottle side is a little harder I usually give at least 21 days but I open one bottle at first to check the carbonation before chilling the whole batch, if the sample is good to go I get the rest cooled down in the fridge a good...

    It's done (first batch)

    I only have 6.5 gallon carboys and have never had to worry about the exra headspace, the big concern is making sure your siphon line is submerged at the bottom to not cause any splash or excess movement. As for the secondary helping to clear the beer, I have found that my wheat beers from...

    Storing ingredients

    PS I have not ever had a problem holding a kit for an extra week in fact I have 2 in my fridge now that are several weeks old :D

    Storing ingredients

    I keep the whole works in the fridge especially if my grain is already cracked, otherwise the rest is pretty stable in a cool place until you brew. I keep several ingredients on hand in case of emergencies and haven't run into any issues. Liquid extract has a timeline on it so you want to make...

    10 gallon extract batches

    I use my 15 gallon kettle on a camp chef stove and have no problem getting to a boil and then some. For my 10 gallon batches I still run them through my beer software to properly scale the amounts. I have found that just doubling does;t always get the same numbers as the volumes are bigger which...

    American Blonde - Specialty grains or no?

    I make a cream ale that uses very light specialty grains to add a little body and flavor creating a very light color beer. The specialties I use are 6 oz Caramel 20, 6 oz White Wheat Malt, 6 oz Pale Malt and 4 oz Flaked Corn with a pilsen or extra light DME, finished color is very similar to the...

    Raspberry Extract

    I use a blackberry extract for my blackberry wheat ale and I use a full 4 oz and let it sit for a good couple of weeks before we get to it. Extracts are tricky and I do have to agree that you have to taste to preference as some extracts are much more powerful. Just taste as you go and give it a...

    It's done (first batch)

    Wheat beers are traditionally a little cloudy so a secondary is not necessary as was stated before, that being said I still run my wheats through a secondary to get them a little cleaner... My friends have a harder time telling my brews form production brews if they are super clean and I have...

    Beginning Kegerator question

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the parts from kegconnection... their prices seem almost too cheap.
