    RIP Hydrometer #3

    I broke quite a few hydrometers in the past :drunk: but now have a plastic one that works really well and no worries about dropping it :)

    "Spike Your Juice"

    Commercial examples of Sour Beers???

    If you want something local try Bridgeport breweries new Stumptown Tart. It's delicious and should be easy to find in the area.

    Weak Bottles

    Yeah I use a wing style capper but I've never had this problem before. Guess I'll just have to be more careful which bottles I use. -Archroy

    Weak Bottles

    Hey, so my last batch of beer I bottled had some really weak bottles that either broke when I capped then or when I tried open them. A few days ago I opened one and the top broke off and cut my hand pretty bad :mad: I'm pretty sure it is just this one type of bottle, has anyone else had this...

    I recommend a plastic hydrometer if you can find one, the glass ones break too easily

    Question about cheddar

    I think it should firm up with drying and aging, I wouldn't worry about it. My cheddar that I just made is doing that and my curds on this one were a mess. Still I think I'll wax it tomorrow if it's dry enough. -Archroy

    Weissbier Bee Cave Brewery Bavarian Hefeweizen

    I just poured a glass of this and its good stuff even though my fermentation temps got out of hand. Fermentation was stuck for a few days when it got cold in my apartment because my thermostat sucks. Even so it came out alot like a Paulaner Hefeweizen when it finally finished which is what I...

    What brands of store-bought milk work for making cheese?

    I don't think that organic milk is better for cheese making any more than organic milk is better for drinking. Personally I would rather use organic for my own cheese making because I think its better quaility but thats up to you. I would use raw milk if I could buy it for a reasonable price...

    Has Anyone Tried Rogue Dead Guy Whiskey?

    Sounds good I'll have to try that, Rogue's spruce gin is good stuff but that's the only liquor of theirs I've had. -Archroy

    Bridgeport Hop Czar

    Hey everyone, I had a Bridgeport Hop Czar the other day and thought it was pretty damn good :mug: Really hoppy yet balanced, I'm not a huge ipa fan as I usually prefer stouts or wheat beers so I don't have a large base for comparison. Has anyone tried this and is there a recipe for something...
