    What beer(s) have you lost interest in since homebrewing?

    All of them until now. I haven't had a home brew sense last April. Time to get back into it. I still like all the commercial beer, including Bud, Miller and Coors. Plus all the fancy stuff.

    Dry Hopping Question

    I dry hop all the time. I sanitize the scissors and hop package and funnel. I dump them in and thats that. My last batch I dry hoped with hop plugs. So I had hop leaves to deal with. I put the syphon into the middle of the beer and syphoned from there. Eventually it clogged. Iv had no off...

    American Pale Ale Lake Walk Pale Ale

    Does beer get any better then this stuff? My latest batch boiled down to a little less then 5 gallons by mistake. Now its thicker and malt yer witch balances out the bittering hops even better. The taste is explosive and citrusy with a big nose. It has a thicker mouth feel and slightly sweeter...

    if oxygen feeds yeast, why not shake constantly during fermentation?

    Some guys are leaving the air lock off and putting a sanitized piece of aluminum foil over the top of the carboy. I'm doing that on my latest batch so the fermenting beer can breath. If you leave the air lock on and shake, I dont think it will give the yeast oxygen. The yeast used all the...

    Overnight Mashing

    I bet your beer is going to very dry. You may get a little sour going on. When iv left my cooler full of spent grains over night, it got a little funky smelling. Bacteria love sweet wort. In your case, ones you boil the wort, your golden. You may discover a new recipe.

    Giving it a good stir?

    No matter where the braid is, it doesn't affect the dead space. All the fluid will drain out the outlet.. until it reaches the outlet level.

    Put some cheap beer in a growler and dry hop it.

    My cousin was talking to a guy that did this and the beer turned out great. What a great idea.

    Can I figure my cooler dead space this way?

    I measured my dead space by measuring the water left in the cooler after I emptied it. I Tilted the cooler to get even less dead space. I mash with the cooler flat then tilt it when sparging.

    racking to a secondary? really?

    I made a patch of Cascades/ Orange Pale ale from the recipe section, using just a primary. I dry hopped in the primary and every thing. I left it in there for about a month. It was clear when I kegged it. I aged it in the keg for another 3 weeks. Its the best beer iv ever brewed to date.

    Will this be safe?

    Was it designed to hold a lot of weight with the prongs being there? Why would they even sell it if it wasn't safe?
