A friend and I decided last night to brew the Project Dank from the last Zymurgy. The recipe calls for the Hop Extract. I know someone has used this before. Thoughts? Where did you find some?...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
After pricing it all out, I believe that I will have to wait to fully upgrade. the current system has copper nipples on all the valves. At 3.50 a pop from Lowe's I think I just decided how to have some consistency across everything. I just need like 4 more. CamLocks are nice and fancy but at 150 ...

[quote]Everyone knows you only want accidental jalapeno qualities in an IPA and not in a stout. I'm testing the process of clarifying coffee to see if I can use that for coffee flavor. It doesn't make the coffee crystal clear, but it take 90% of the color out and leaves behind the coffee flavors...

That's not a bad description actually. :lol: The coffee added a very veggie jalapeno quality, so my assumption is that they added green coffee beans via dry hopping. ...

Both carboys are pumping away with a high gravity pale ale (haven't tried to figure out it I made a mistake or the recipe was designed to make a 1070 APA). One a slightly old note, I got to try a Pale Stout over the weekend. I know some of you were talking about it a while back. We were not a ...

re: Made biscuits with rendered leaf lard. - Fratastic423
I bought some leaf lard from Iverstine Farms at the Farmers Market a few weeks back and have yet to do anything with it. I assume you just put it in a pot on a burner with a touch of water and slowly render it out? Then save rendered fat to use in biscuits? ...

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...
