    Cooling Wort Fast Without A Chiller

    I use two different methods for cooling 5 gallons of wort down after boiling it. One for summer brewing and one for winter brewing. Neither of these include a wort chiller, as I have not purchased one yet. I thought sharing these methods just might help a new or even an experienced brewer out...

    3 Day IPA

    Back in October (2019) I pulled off a little brewing miracle. And one to be repeated, but preferably without the extra pressure of time. Yeah, yeah. A few months before, I had signed up (again) to serve homebrew beer at a fundraising event: The 10th annual Homebrew Extravaganza at Checkerspot...

    Taste-wise, is it too early to keg my stout?

    Hi all. 15 days ago I brewed a stout with Nottingham Ale yeast. I am hosting a St. Patricks day-themed party on Sunday so this would be kegged friday night, and was wondering whether it would be ready taste-wise? I have more experience with lower ABV beers with a quicker turnaround time, but I...

    Is my dry stout too "simple"?

    Hi all. I recently put together a keg setup and thus revived my beer brewing motivation for the first time in 3.5 years - great! I'm almost through the first keg and I'm looking to brew a quick turn around beer. I like roasty beers so the dry stout seemed like an obvious choice (roast to mask...

    Fun, consistent cider recipies from kits

    I've been experimenting with using kits to make tasty and fun ciders with consistent results (as the concentrates are rather consistent in flavour). I've mainly been using Mangrove Jacks Craft Series Apple Cider and Mangrove Jacks Craft Series Pear Cider. As far as I can see, these can be bought...

    First Beer kit did not follow directions!

    I started with a kit that had everything - almost. I got stainless tools and pyrex cups and bowls. The night before I made a yeast starter. Used Windsor yeast.The yeast started foaming in minutes at 75 degrees. It foamed into the air lock. after 24 hours it was still bubbling away. I steeped the...

    wort chiller flow direction

    This falls under the dumb question category. When hooking up an immersion type wort chiller does it matter if the water flows top of coil to bottom or from bottom up? Also, I saw a youtube video where a guy said that slowing the rate of flow actually cools better than having the water...
