re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread (ADMIN: Sticky Requested!) - Fratastic423
Its getting close to Friday afternoon, almost the weekend. Anyone have brewing plans? My plan is to brew 10 gallons of an American Pale Ale based off of a recipe that LA Homebrew shared. I haven't figured out the hops yet but I have Simcoe, Cascade, Amarillo and Centennial at the house and I ca...

I bought the B3-23A-30 plate. I had a couple of friends recommend buying two 20 plate ones and connecting them in series, first with ground water the second with ice water. While that works really well, I didn't want to deal with 2 plate chillers. So I went with the 30 and will just cycle the wor...

I posted this on FB last night but for those not in my brew club's page. Here is my almost complete new system. [img]http://i744.photobucket.com/albums/xx83/bwinch1/Brewstand.jpg[/img] I have to attach the control panel (after I change a switch out to make it function the way I want). The ...

[quote]let me follow up with a more general question. What are the reasons for going with an ale yeast for primary then adding bugs vs adding both at the same time?[/quote] It depends on how sour you want the final product to be. If you throw enough bugs in immediately, they will start to eat so...

[quote]Could I ferment with regular saison yeast for a couple weeks, then rack to a secondary onto peaches and add bugs?[/quote] Of course.

True, but I have a version of that on tap now. I just had a conversation with my dad. Apparently I committed to making a Watermelon Kolsch for a party in a few weeks. Might just make a basic pale ale in lieu of trying to work with a Koslch yeast. ...

I felt like I was robbing a dude today. Felt by for him, didn't seem like he wanted to sell his system at all but circumstances forced him. But whatever, I have a new brew system. It barely fits in the car but it fits, which is all that matters. Can't wait to brew next weekend ...

re: Tacoma owners are mighty proud. - Fratastic423
I swung by All Star yesterday on a whim to take a look at the Tacoma's on the lot. Only had 4 there which seemed odd. My friends who have them really enjoy them, so I figured it would be a good option since I do not feel I need or would get the use out of a full size truck. Going to swing bac...

I could tell right away with the previous batch that something wasn't right. So you could just take it out of the barrel and cold crash it right then. The major thing is that you have to keep it full, or dose it with co2 all the time. ...

This morning I got antsy again with my barrel, and since there is little activity I decided to top off the barrel with the extra wort from the brew day that I had saved and fermented with some so5. The barrel is now basically full, hopefully that doesn't cause any issues. I need to just relax abou...

Went to the beach this weekend so no brewing. After a 7 hour trip home from Pensacola with a stop at Old Rail to ease the frustrations from traffic, I did some beer checking. The blonde ale that I didn't like the aroma of so I dry hopped last Thursday tastes really good. Glad I dry hopped it....

re: Michael Cox of Zonal Marking/ESPN on what US needs to do to improve - Fratastic423
Completely agree with his argument. Hopefully we will see our players get the recognition and chances to play in Europe, because if we are going to rely on MLS we will continue to be the same old American team that wins on heart and effort rather than true talent. ...
