    Drinking straight out from fermenting keg

    Hey folks! I'm just woundering for curiosity sake. Have anyone tried drinking out from their fermenting keg as a final product with their beer already self carbonated/ forced carbonated? I guess if you dont mind the yeast why not? But mabye cutting of your pickup tube a little bit.

    Harvesting Wild Yeast

    Generally it’s nice to brew with predictable ingredients in controlled conditions. You purchase your ingredients, follow your process, pitch your yeast, and leave your beer in a temperature stable environment. After some time the yeast consumes all the sugars and leaves behind its own flavor...

    Gelatin Fining - Cold Versus Warm

    In my last article about gelatin, I explained how it works (physically and chemically) and proved that a short boil does no harm to it, busting a common brewing myth. After multiple positive responses, I decided to do an experiment to bring more light into another commonly discussed, gelatin...

    Hefeweizen Yeast Selection Experiment

    One of the beers that made me enter the hobby of brewing was a nice and fluffy Paulaner hefe-eeissbier. It was the first hefeweizen I tasted and I fell in love instantly with the style: phenolic, estery, wheaty, refreshing, bubbly… simply delicious. Since then I tried to brew some examples of...

    I have been brewing for some 5 years, 2 of those also as a head-brewer at a local brewery. I don’t have any official education supporting my brewing skills, I gained all of them myself, reading forums, books and articles like this, but most importantly, by experimenting. The information you get...

    Brewing by the Numbers | The Law of Averages Part 1

    The technical side of brewing has always been the most interesting to me. I enjoy the process (and the drinking), but the science behind it has always taken the limelight. I was reading the recipe for Biermuncher's Aberdeen Brown Ale...

    Wort Aeration & How To Build A Free Pump

    One of my favorite aspects of home brewing is the ingenuity that can be used throughout the process. Some people have the finances to buy the biggest and best equipment, some like me do not. For me, the fun comes in when I can use some ingenuity to come up with a way to do something cheaper and...

    Help - Is this an infected batch?

    Hi Homebrewers - so I’ve finally dusted off the equipment I’ve had stored for years to try out my first 5 gallon batch. Took the easy route and picked up one of the Coopers IPA kits where you just need to add DME and pitch the yeast. Got to thinking that this was too easy so I harvested some...

    So I brewed a shot of beer

    Hello fellow beer-makers, Some of you may have seen this post I made back in July chronicling the brewing of a quart of beer. This did really happen, and the beer was perfectly adequate, but upon telling my brother of my triumphant micro exploits, he responded with a sigh, a roll of the eyes...

    Steam Beer-style Fermentation in Flat Pans

    I was looking at experimenting with fermentation techniques, and I began wondering about fermenting in flat, open (kind of) containers. Anchor Brewing Co. successfully ferments their Anchor Steam beer this way. So, it got me wondering: Has anyone here tried fermenting beer in flat, stainless...

    Acerglyn

    This is my first go at an acerglyn, and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. I thought it would be fun to do kind of a sweet/savory thing. Instead of using water, I'm using Cold Brew Coffee. I want to get kind of a breakfast feel, so I'm doing the coffee, some black pepper corns, some...
