I need to look into it more. I would have to generate a membership list and see how events where nonmembers show up work. Would probably start charging 5 dollars a year for dues to cover the insurance though ...

Does anyone know of someone who could work on a chest freezer? I don't want to just throw it out but feel like it would cost more to fix (at a repair shop) then it is worth. ...

[quote]The Cascade wet hop pale ale I brewed a couple weeks ago has turned out pretty disappointing. I used 6 ounces of them at both 10 minutes and flameout hoping to get some nice flavor/aroma out of them. Tasted after fermentation had finished, and it was a very bland beer. So I dry hopped with 2 ...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
So it appears that I lost my lager chest freezer this past weekend. It climbed up to 67 for the diacetyl rest and didn't go back down. Hopefully it broke then and not when my lager was fermenting. The Vienna lager tasted fine before the diacetyl rest so here's to hoping. :cheers: I did buy a ton...

re: What should I know about the Sierra Nevada beer camp beers? - Fratastic423

[quote]I am going to make a starter in a few days. I am not sure if I am suppose to throw the whole batch in or skim off the top and just use the sediment.

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
Things Frat learned this week: 1. If you pitch enough yeast into a lager, it will still ferment really quickly at 50 degrees. Brewed on Saturday, moved to a diacetyl rest yesterday as the wort had dropped to 1012. 2. I need friends to split brew days with me, brewing 10 gallons is too easy no...
