The Pub / Craft beer tap list app
« on: March 24, 2015, 07:03:58 PM »
Hey everyone,

I just wanted to get the word out on a web app I've developed. It allows users to post pictures of tap lists, and to see a feed of those posted by others. The idea is that most of the "real time" tap list apps out there are lacking, and scrape data from other sources, so it's not always accurate. I have used a bunch of them and they always seem to be behind what is actually on tap. Hopefully in the future the app could also be used by venues to post new lists as they change, as well.

Currently the app is in final stages of testing, and I'll be releasing it in a month or so. If you're interested, visit the site below and sign up with your email address.

Thank you very much!

Beer Recipes / Critique my "American Bitter" recipe
« on: October 10, 2013, 10:47:19 AM »
Hello Everyone!

I'm working on a recipe for a beer I'm calling an "American Bitter". It's probably closest to an American IPA by the guidelines, but I want a little more of an interesting malt presence in the beer. I'm looking to create something similar to Surly's "Furious" IPA. Let me know what you think / what you would change! Thanks!

Beer Recipes / American Black Ale Recipe (water profile?)
« on: September 30, 2013, 10:53:37 AM »
Hello Everyone!  :D

I am planning on brewing my first American Black Ale this weekend and have formulated the following recipe. I'm looking to make something in the realm of Hill Farmstead's James. Can anyone who has brewed this style give any tips on water treatment? I use distilled water and treat with CaCl and Gypsum (adding acid malt for pale beers), but I drop the acid malt and gypsum for dark beers. However, since this style needs to also have a firm bitterness, I'm not sure how to treat the water. Would a profile for a stout / porter in the mash and then add more gypsum in the kettle work? Thanks for any water recommendations, and any other tips!
