    Filtering between Fermenter and Keg

    I am generally brewing Extract IPA's or Pale Ale's. Some are full syrup malts, some are DME's. I ferment in a Firmzilla, without pressure fermentation, blow off tube into a 1 gal carboy 1/2 filled with Starsan. From this I push to a keg, through a CO2 push into the firmzilla - direct into a...

    First custom recipe - Pale Ale...thoughts?

    Hello, I just started home brewing with craftabrew recipe kits but I haven’t found what I’m looking for in a beer. My favorite beer I’ve had so far has been Buoy’s Pale Ale from Astoria, Oregon and so I’ve done a lot of research into making my own first recipe. Before I begin buying...

    How to make my beer less bitter after brewing

    I recently brewed up some pale ale and the taste came out more bitter than expected. The beer is definitely drinkable but I would enjoy it much more if it was a little less bitter. What are some solutions to this problem?

    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...

    Understanding Yeast Fermentation Temperature Ranges

    Hey everyone! I’m really new to home brewing: I’ve brewed twice with others and I just set my first solo batch in the basement to ferment 3 days ago. Two more days til I add the dry hops!

    My first brew!

    Brewed up my first batch I have ever done. Did the American pale ale kit that comes with the more beer deluxe kit. Can’t argue against a name like that! FREEDOM. Hoping everything turns out awesome! Fermenting in the dark in the basement for the 2 weeks. Biggest step that I learned, crack a beer...

    No Aroma!

    This is the weirdest outcome in 65 batches... Wanted nothing but a session pale ale instead I got a weird beer without any aroma. Considering the 8 oz of hops this doesn't make any sense. Anyone wants to give a 2 or 3 cents? Recipe Specifications -------------------------- Boil Size: 12.42 gal...

    To Filter or Not To Filter

    Question is as the title states but here is my problem statement: I brewed a Citra Pale Ale and Cider for a wedding. Both pretty straight forward, both came out tasting great. After cold crashing, I drew some samples Cider was clear, beer has was about 50% clear but I was fine with that. Fast...

    American Pale Ale Lemongrass + Hibiscus Pale Ale - perfect for spring patio sipping

    This is a great beer to sip on the patio as the weather gets warmer. Super easy drinking beer with great color and flavor profile. I didn't add any of the lemongrass or hibiscus until the last 5 days of fermentation along with my 1oz of centennial dry hop. Head has a nice subtle pinkness that...

    "GoldenEye" Pale Ale

    Yes, I am that guy that named his pale ale fermented with WLP 007 after a bond movie... haha, i'm sure there's been thousands of us!

    American Pale Ale In The Pines West Coast Pale Ale

    Hey everyone. This is a great autumn beer with a really nice pine flavour from the Chinook and Simcoe, along with a slight bit of grapefruit that's not overwhelming (like some IPAs can be) I had some friends by on the weekend and they went through over half the keg, so I'll be making another...

    Amount of rye malt

    Just planning to use rye malt for the first time. What do you think is the best amount (% of total grain) to use when I am looking for a slight but noticeable influence on beer taste. I know that high amounts of rye can cause wort separation problems, but how low can you go not to lose the rye...
