    Hey guys I haven't been on very much lately. I usually do most of my posting and browsing at work, and I just started a new job which has been much busier and harder to find the time. I just thought I would make some time to share a new recipe that I put together and the results. I called...

    Fermenter size for 3 gallon batch

    I decided for the winter months, I will do my brewing indoors(did one brew outside in -30 celcius.. not fun). Because I just have a standard stove top, I don't think brewing 5 gallons would be very effective. So I am going to do 3 gallon batches and see if this works a little better. My question...

    Roasted Barley Coffee

    I knew I would be making one of these threads eventually. I really don't think this is an infection and might just be floaties, but would like a second opinion. Took my first gravity reading of my Irish Red and beer looked like this. I noticed there was still some thick krausen on the sides so I...

    SMaSH Recipe

    It seems like my Irish Red is being pushed back a bit. A bunch of friends decided to do a gift exchange for Christmas this year. To make matters worse, they want to make it a home made gift. Luckily, the guy I get to give too is a beer drinker. So I decided this was a great excuse to brew...

    Name that grain!

    My aunt spent a few weeks in Germany and brought back a pound of grain. Apparently they eat it as a beer side snack and she thought my dad would like them. He wasn't a big fan but knew I was into AG brewing so he passed them my way. Problem is, she has no idea what type it is. I am guessing...
