    Isn’t a T58 a helicopter engine??

    I think I’m going to brew 20 gallons of this once things warm up, might as well brew it to last the summer right?

    @rhaop most saison yeasts like a bit of heat to bring out the saison funk, I'd try a bit warmer. In fact I brewed my recipe once and fermented it out in my garage when I lived in Phoenix, the ambient temp out there was around 90, it was fantastic!

    @curmudgeonvt I leave it on the yeast, I've never secondaried a beer unless it's to rack it onto fruit!

    Hey guys, I'm amazed this is still going strong, I've been busy with life lately and haven't gotten on here lately, anything I can help with?

    Cream Ale Heileman's Special Export - 70's Retro Beer - Extract & All Grain

    This may be on tap for the holidays at my place, all I need to do is get off my tail and brew it, nice and simple recipes make me happy!

    If you promise not to tell anyone my secret, I'll let you in on it..... I rarely use Pilsner malt anymore, I mostly use plain 2-row, used golden promise once after buying a sack for doing Scottish ales, and even used Munich malt as a base as well, it's all really good in this recipe!!!!!! :tank:

    I swore I replied to this earlier, maybe I never hit submit.... My experience is this beer is quite consistent, did you follow the same schedule for temps and times? That is one thing I do every batch, for all recipes.... And is a key I've found in the quest for repeatability. :mug:

    I keg my beer, then bottle off the tap for long term storage on a few champagne bottles. Never had issues with oxidation

    First All Grain Brew

    The only bits I can add to this rather well assembled list is: 19) after chilling to pitching temps add yeast pop in your airlock or blowoff tube and move to your fermentation area 20) NOW you may crack a beer! I've seen too many brewdays (my own included) go all wrong because the brewer...

    House Beer

    I still brew my pale ale referenced on page 1, bout I'm now more likely to have my mild recipe on tap... Or the saison... Both are in my recipe pull-down

    I judged a beet beer in a homebrew competition once, though it scored very well on all the technical aspects I personally wanted to dump it... I love beets prepared all different ways, but the beet beer was too much, like fizzy purple dirt. Hopefully this experiment goes well and doesn't...

    Hello from Arizona

    That sounds like you are on the right path, I would recommend joining ASH, I was a member when I lived out there, great bunch of homebrewers, and a lot of experienced brew rig guys to help you along. There are homebrew clubs out here but nothing of the caliber of ASH.

    I'm glad you are enjoying it! I'm a firm believer in keeping things simple, they tend to be better in my opinion, I've seen recipes with a dozen different grains and a load of different hops, I doubt anyone can pick up on the flavour each grain can provide, let alone taste each hop varietal... I...

    You will have a fine beer at any rate, and then we can see if the efficiency can't be improved through a few changes, usually a finer crush on the grain is the best place to start
