    Has anybody ever used corn or corn cobs during brewing?

    It is high time in Northwest Jersey for tons of good sweet corn. I was thinking of cutting some kernels off of a half dozen ears in the mash for an ale I am making to see how it does. I would be using about 5 pounds 2-row, one-pound caramel, and six ears worth of corn kernels. What do you...

    romanian beer

    I read over that message and read the signature line and was thankful I don't feel that way about Romanians or hippies. Romania, te iubesc.

    romanian beer

    In my week in Sighisoara I did find that I was constantly drinking tuiga of some quality or another, depending on who was looking for the bottle. I brought home about a liter and it is going too fast...

    romanian beer

    By Silver Black I meant Silva Negra. May be the Ursus black you are referring to, but the bottle had no mention of Ursus. It was brewed by Silva. Maybe I just like mild pilsners? Heck I even enjoy a Bud sometimes, but I sure loved Ciuc.

    Need Pressure Relief O-ring For Sanke Tap

    I am having a leak through my pressure-release valve on a Sanke tap. It appears to be a standard tap. I see that you two are discussing replacing an O-ring. My question is, How do you get that release valve off?

    romanian beer

    I just stayed in Romania for a week and I much preferred Ciuc to Ursus. In fact, I could not get enough Ciuc. I brought two home. One for now, and one for a chance meeting with a thirsty Romanian. Are you drinking any Silver Black? I hated the Redd's. Too lemony. Any leads on Ciuc...

    Samuel Adams Noble Pils

    Just stopped at Friday's to grab some appetizers. The manager reduced the price of Noble Pils pints to 2.50 cause nobody buys them! I had two!

    Whats your carbon footprint... about beer, really.

    At first I was going to come up with some angry reply to what you just wrote, but you are entitled to your opinion. Also, I am too busy bringing a bowl of kitchen waste out to my ugly compost heap! I don't consider myself a hippie *********, but I do feel that it is important for all of us...

    Right Under My Nose (Commercial Beer Recommendations)

    Got out of my day job with three hours to spare. I picked up the George Hal and Co. Prize Old Ale. I have never tasted anything like this in my life. This was the Old Ale I remember seeing, and I will have to compare it with the one mentioned earlier. Goes good with my ham and mashed...

    Nice! This week I will check out anchor porter, hacker pschorr, and weihenstephan! I also bought a Founder IPA but found out it was twistie tops!!! Good beer, but useless bottles.

    Right Under My Nose (Commercial Beer Recommendations)

    So here in Brigewater, NJ we have quite a few liquor stores. There is even a Drive-thru. I have been unable to find a good beer selection. Yesterday, however, I stepped into a Super Saver Liquor on route 22 next to the Ace. Oddly enough, the first box of beer I saw was a Rye beer. The small...

    My Ugly Junk- Corona Mill Station...

    I have an equally ugly Corona mill set up. What I also have is an old huffy stationary bike. What I am thinking of is pedal power. I was never taught to be the most mechanical person in the world. Could anybody on here with a mechanical inclination get me started? I would imagine I would...

    When does it stop?

    I am in Central Jersey. I brew when I can with hops growing at two of my friends' places - one in North Jersey and one in North Central massachusetts. My style is to use local ingredients when I can. I would love to buy some of those hops from you this fall. My first AG batch is fermenting...

    tap water vs spring water

    Here in North Jersey there is a natural spring in the state park running from a pipe 24/7. This is where I get all my drinking water. Does this still have to be boiled? I would think for AG brewing it would not work right? I am new to this, and would like to learn more.
