    First cones!!!

    I have some full size cones on some of my Centennials already this year (second year). I hope that they don't peak very early? If they get large, early does that mean that they have more time to develop more of the potent lupulin?

    I want to brew Boston Lager, but it needs to be an ale...

    I am an all grain brewer with a few years experience under my belt. I absolutely love Sam Adams Boston Lager, and I want to brew it at home. The problem is at this time, there is no real practical way for me to brew a lager. Now before I get a bunch of messages from people telling me how...

    Falconers flight

    It is a delicious hop. Think simcoe meets Citra meets Amarillo. Fantastic

    Where to buy hops buy the pound?

    I have used Farmhouse several times, and wholesale hops, both are good, no complaints on either except maybe for certain varieties on hand at different times of the year, but that's to be expected with the simcoes and such.

    How's this for a jacketed fermenter?

    For everyone who is suggesting a fridge instead of the jackets, have you ever wrestled a snake with 11+ gallons of wort? My guess is no. The jackets are the way to go! The only concern I would have is the vessel sweating, but that should be easily overcome.

    Homebrew Internet Video Channels

    I had no idea that this thread even existed! Thanks to DantheMan again for his nice compliments. I don't post videos as often as I would like, often I feel I have nothing major enough, or enough new ideas or techniques to justify a video. Maybe I should do more short videos instead of fewer...

    Barley Crusher issue

    The only time I had the same problem with my Barley Crusher was when I started malt conditioning, I was wetting the grist and waiting one hour to mill. Had a hard time getting the mill to prime. Now, I wet the grist, wait 10 minutes, and I have not had the slightest issue since. Wet milling...

    Oxyclean is amazing

    I really prefer to use PBW, because there are no added scents at all, and it seems to rinse a bit easier than OxiClean, BUT, for the price difference, I will take Oxiclean any day of the week! Works just as well. I have a water softener, and have never experienced the scaling that others...

    Affects of overpitching yeast

    If your beers are finishing lower than expected, you could possibly have some kind of infection. I use a refractometer when making starters. I always use 1.040 as my SG, no problems yet, knock on wood....

    Two questions on dry yeast

    I did a split batch once. Split a 10 gallon batch of APA, fermented 5 gallons of it with a rehydrated pack of US-05 and the other with a healthy yeast starter of Wyeast 1056 (WLP 001 Equivelant). I am here to tell you the differences between the two beers was very obvious. The US-05 beer was...

    Craigslist ad

    That is some serious money...and to sell it at a big loss like that? My brew stuff is all home made and looks like something Doc Brown invented, but hey, it works!
