    Will fan make chest freezer more efficient ?

    Ideally, you'd have the fan in the fridge come on before the compressor runs and then for a while after if turns off. You could also put a fan on the compressor coil (if they are exposed) of the fridges, it would help in hot weather. Putting a fan in the electrical enclosure with the...

    Hops Group Buy in Chicago #2

    I too plan on eating up a split. I'm thinking of trying to get good at berlinner weisse.

    Citra hops are starting to let me down

    Let's just say that I won't be using my homegrown hops any more. I think they gave it a grape drink (yes, "grape drank") flavor I don't really like.

    Costco...craft beer?

    It used to be (and may still be) that you can only get the Two Brothers sampler case at Costco. I know they have it at the one in Bolingbrook IL.

    Batch Sparge Volumes. Not Understanding Needed Volumes

    You'll only need a few quarts of the hot water to preheat the mash tun, not the whole volume. At least that's what I do.

    Group Buy in Chicago #9

    So the average is around 3.5 sacks per person. I'm just realizing how many people that is. Awesome. Round of applause for the organizers...

    Group Buy in Chicago #9

    Is anyone ordering Mugwort? Has anyone in the past that still has some? I'd like a look at it, since it grows like crazy all over the city as a weed. If it's the same stuff, I might have to start harvesting it and drying it, to sell for $26/lb....

    Group Buy in Chicago #9

    I don't think I have access yet... I guess I meant that my options other than the group buy are pretty slim.

    Group Buy in Chicago #9

    My options for buying whole sacks are pretty slim, so I'll likely only buy two. I'm interested to see what else there is available. I'm guessing we can't buy a whole box of dry yeast and split it up?

    Citra hops are starting to let me down

    Did another ipa today with both Mosaic and Citra. Added some homegrown Cascade as well. In a few days I'll dry hop with the remaining Mosaic and Citra. I'll be reporting back here once they are ready to taste.

    Citra hops are starting to let me down

    A couple of things I'd like to mention here from my very limited experience with both hops. I'm pretty certain that Two Brothers Sidekick is made with just Mosaic. If you can get that, it may provide a starting place for working it into your recipes. It will also answer some of the questions...

    Any chance of Mosaic being available in bulk?

    2013 Hop garden photo thread

    I've got Cascade going gangbusters this year. I'm in the Chicago west burbs and I'm wondering if anyone else has harvested yet...

    Wet shaving thread.

    I've been on a bit of a binge with shaving. I've goat a black tip superspeed, a red flare tip superspeed and a silver flare tip superspeed. More recently, a Canadian ball end tech showed up. The handle was hollow, and split down the side, so it's more of a six piece, since both the shoulder...

    Spoiled Wet Hops?

    I harvested last week, put them in paper bags and gave them out for free, I hope they don't look like that now...

    Goose Island - Insights From Inside (sorta)

    So my friends didn't tell me, but they booked a private tour with one of the brewers with Goose Island (Brewpub) for my bachelor party. It was amazing, the guy was so cool, instead of the usual 1ish hour tour, we had a long, detailed tour (where we were able to nerd out about water chemistry...
