    Magic Hoodie (Hat) #9

    High Gravity Stout. Dark Lord Inspired.

    So I'm looking to have a nice deep beer for my birthday next year (Feb 15th) and decided on a high gravity stout. Looking for a little feedback. Based this on some of the Dark Lord Discussions, but wanted something that finished out a little lower in gravity and had more alcohol warmth. I...

    In-Line Carbonation

    After getting my BYO yesterday, I read about the in-line O2 diffusion as well as the filtration article. I was thinking, why not build something that would do both carbonation and filtering at the time of racking? So the general layout would be: Corny w/flat beer Out Post => Water...

    Tetts and Ace IPA

    So I had these 2007 Tettnanger Pellets that were rated at 7.1% Alpha and tasted the hydro sample yesterday. Let me just say that it didn't taste like ~70 IBU's. I made a correction to the alpha (6%) and now it seems closer to what it should be. Anyone else have problems with maintaining the...

    Hop Bags

    What's the deal with people discussing how they get lower hop utilization with hop bags. I feel like the only “real” application for a hop bag should be for dry hopping in kegs. Instead, I have use grain bags if I’m going to use a bag at all. It contains most of the flower hops, it allows...

    Fermentis WB06

    Just saw it at the LHBS last night. On their website, they say it closely resembles a Weisenstephan Bavarian Wheat yeast. What do you think that it will mostly resemble. I was hoping to make a Wit this weekend. Should I try it out? Temps?

    Tried a new Pale

    I just pitched Nottingham on my Light Pale Ale that I made on Saturday. I did a quasi-partial mash technique where I "rinse" the specialty grains in a 180 degree bath before discarding them and it gave me an extra bump of .04 gravity points (over the expect OG). I used: .5 # Vienna .5 #...

    So I've been lurking on the site since I converted my old fridge into a kegerator and have had an itching to do my own. I had one of those nasty DIY kits with the little cube that made a 6-pack, but I really wanted something that I could enjoy, so I went to 's retail...
