    Rum soaked oak chips.. Help

    So I plan on racking my pumpkin beer onto a nice bed of oak chips that I am going to soak with some rum of my choice.. My question is 1, do I have to sanitize the oak chips first? Or with the alcohol in the rum take care of that..? And 2, how much rum should I add to 1/2-3/4 of an ounce of oak...

    Dry hopping in primary

    Sooo, I just brewed my summer IPA a couple weeks ago and am ready to dry hop it with the pellets... I wanted to come here for opinions on doing it because I want the best possible aroma and flavor as I can get out of it.. It's going to stay in the primary and I was going to sanitize some marbles...

    Cloning New England Brewing Company's Gandhi-bot

    Bumpski!! I brewed this and let it sit for a few weeks after it was bottled and it tastes good... Good, not Gandhi... I have brewed two IIPAs, this being the second one.. And both have a similar taste.. It's a very fruity taste. But not a citrousy taste.. I can't put my finger on it to describe...

    Raspberry Wheat Extract Recipe Thoughts

    I am seeing a lot of fresh raspberries being used in a secondary... How do you sanitize and keep the beer from re-fermenting with fresh berries...?

    Dry hopping in primary?

    Here's a question... I'm getting ready to dry hop my DIPA and I was thinking about going the primary route instead of a secondary.... Now if I take my lid off to get my gravity and dump the hops in, will I introduce unwanted oxygen into the top of the beer...? Or not enough to worry about it..?

    Back to the beer... Thanks for your help Remmy.. I brewed this on Friday and my brew day went absolutely flawless.. Everything except my OG was perfectly spot on...

    Zero Carbonation

    I wouldn't say sweet, the beer has an almost thicker than normal taste to it... But then again this is my first go around with the heady clone.. So I'm not sure what it's supposed to taste like.. Alls I know is that it smells amazing and tastes good but flat....
