Use it as the liquid in your smoker pan for smoking meats.
Interesting, if it had flavor...

Drink it, dump it, or gift it.
I would never gift this beer, even to my uncle!

All Grain Brewing / What to do?
« on: June 18, 2018, 05:45:16 AM »
I have 44 beers of a horrid beer I made.
A honey wheat that has no taste, it’s over carbonated. It has no taste.
What can I do with this?

I'm growing Cascade, Centennial and Columbus in my back yard.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
 They've really taken off, but it also been really dry lately. Time will tell after this string of storms goes through the area.

Beautiful beer indeed!  What’s the secret?
Secondary fermentation.

Have you ever used anything like whirl flock or Irish moss before? It helps big time.  I remember when I struggled with clarity.
Bravo.
I didn’t use either of those. Just a secondary fermentation.

You could always make a few small 2'x2' boxes and put soil in them and then plant your hops in there.
YouTube has some great videos about growing hops.

I did a one gallon Summer solstice light ale, I replaced the .5 oz of Williamette with 1 oz. of Citra.
Looking forward to this beer, I think its going to be a great summer ale.

1. Patience. Patience. Patience.
    A good beer takes a good length of time.

2. A watched kettle never boils, but an unwatched kettle always boils over.

3. If you're unsure about doing something, ask your friends here on the boards.

4. If you don't worry about your beer, you don't care.

5. Don't sweat the small things, clean and sanitize them first.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: New Brewer - why do you homebrew
« on: May 08, 2018, 01:43:37 AM »
My buddy and I got into brewing because we love drinking beer, but we also wanted something to do as well.
If you think about it, have you seen an ingredient label on the beer you drink the most?
We wanted to know what goes in our beer, see what tastes good, find out what we like, and have some minor shenanigans.

We call it, "man cooking". It's fun, and definitely a constant learning experience.


Have fun, is the big thing. Enjoy the brew and then enjoy a brew.
If you're not having fun making beer, you're doing something wrong.


Prost!

Any historical recipe from Ron Pattinson. This is one of my personal favorites:

http://barclayperkins.blogspot.com/2016/02/lets-brew-wednesday-1957-whitbread-ipa.html

This is leaps and bounds better than any "Session IPA" being produced by US craft breweries right now, and at 1.036 it is really easy to make it disappear by the liter.

My second choice is an adjunct lager or cream ale. Once you have a dozen or so brews under your belt and are making good beer, you will be amazed at how flavorful and enjoyable the style can be when you're not trying to intentionally make it taste like water.


I was just talking about how beer would have tasted a hundred years ago.
There was limited availability of resources, money as well.
You made beer from what you could grow, or use a little of the excess crop.
I figured is wan't too high in ABV, or very clear, either.


I'm going to check out these vintage brews and see what's out there.

General Homebrew Discussion / One brew that is a must.

Just bottled our last two batches this past week.
First brew was a Russian Imperial Stout.
Then, Imperial Blonde Ale - this is the best one yet. Definitely a keeper for the fridge.
Honey wheat
A Belgian Saison.
Have a Daredevil IPA - in a one gallon fermenting.
Have a Irish Red to brew, but what is the one beer that everyone should brew, just once?
