    For all you yeast harvesters, which beers on the market have viable yeast inside their bottles, which can be harvested and used?

    Okay...why the heck is it that most breweries bottle their beers in 12oz bottle, when an actual pint is 16oz? All my barware is 16oz or larger, so why the heck wont these brewers pony up another 4oz and sell larger bottles? I mean pints are perfect sizes, so what the heck? Yeah, I know, we...

    New Mash Tun

    Well, I was getting tired of being restricted on my mash volumes with my 5 gallon Rubbermaid set up, and dont have the room (indoor brewer) to build my scupture I designed, so I decided to change my mash tun. So, I picked up an Igloo Ice Cube 48 quart cooler from Sears online for $24.99. (Yeah...

    Band Aid Taste / Yeast

    There has been much debate over the "Band-Aid" odor/flavor in many infected batches from a great many people. And so far I have had to dump one last summer because of that exact problem. It was said that this problem comes from bacterial contamination, or from not rinsing your equipment...

    Okay, I just used my new Shirron wort chiller tonight on my Hop Rod Rye and MAN is this a great chiller. Straight off the flame out, and into the chiller, and I cant believe how cool the wort came out. Talk about a time save and a quick chill. My immersion chiller is out of business for good...

    Rye Stout

    I had a friend over and gave him some of my Hop Rod Rye. He ranted and raved over it, saying it was one of the best beers he ever had. He said it had a nice fruity aroma and taste (Thanks to Wyeast's 1272) and spicy Rye flavor. But, he likened it to a stout, and said he would take mine over...
