    American IPA Pliny Light

    Huge amounts of tropical fruit and dankness. This is the second time I have done an IPA with Galaxy and it works very well with Simco and everything else here. Next time I brew this I will give some attempts to dry the beer out more to the 1.010-1.012 range. You can easily drink this beer hand...

    American Brown Ale Oatmeal Brown Ale

    This is my take on a blender of a Janet's Brown inspired hoppy brown ale that is more towards the "dank" and resinous hoppy spectrum. I would buy this beer in mass quantities if it was produced commercially, instead I have brewed it 4 times (5 gallon). Mine is assumed 65% efficiency as I do...

    Im hooked! Again

    Just tasted my first mead (3 weeks in primary) and now I'm as hooked as brewing. It's a 10% dry with local honey from a friend who keeps bees. This thing is awesome at 3 weeks and cloudy, I can't wait for 6-12 months. Oh and I get the honey @ 3lbs for 5 bucks and support him with some homebrew.

    I think i finally caught some!!

    I put out an Agar plate open on my back deck for about 10 hours one week ago. I then closed it up and let it sit in my kitchen upside down and sealed until last night. I had an interesting mix of what seemed to be two small patches of yeast and various other molds. I re-plated the two colonies...

    Real wort starter question?

    Brewed a 1.060 SG IPA today and made a Real wort starter with WLP001. This is my first attempt at this as I ran out o time yesterday, but not my first starter. How long should I let this thing ferment out 8, 16, 24 hours? I normally leave my starters on the stirplate for 24 hours? Thanks in advance

    Odd stirbar question.

    So I used my stirplate for the first time last night with a Belgian Trappist WLP500. I used a small magnet from a computer hard drive that I believed to be stainless. My starter seemed to be end up a weird non light DME color and after I pitched "dumb" I noticed that the stir bar had turrned...

    STONE bottle label removal.

    Just in case anyone gives a S&!%. A long soak in Star San and a scrub will remove the labels from STONE bottles. I only bottle a couple beers per batch so reuse is key. Just my two pennies.
