The Pub / My gift to the AHA...
« on: December 20, 2011, 12:44:08 PM »
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that contributes to this forum. I give to you...the gift of graphics! :)

Have a great holiday!

Here's a link to the original size


The Pub / Moonshiners
« on: December 08, 2011, 09:09:58 AM »
Watched the first 2 episodes so far, since its highly illegal I can't believe anyone would let themselves be videotaped doing it, especially without their identity masked. Interesting none-the-less.

Anyone else watching this?

Pimp My System / Coolest Brewshed Ever?
« on: December 04, 2011, 09:43:56 AM »
In my search for ideas for a backyard brewshed i've run across some pretty interesting stuff but this is by far the coolest shed design i've ever seen. The prices are really high but understandable for the amount of custom work involved. I think its just one guy making them. Couldnt find the width on the site but you can order them from 6' - 12' deep.

So cool! Almost makes me want to start looking for a still for moonshine! *banjo music*

A lot more picts on the website: The Rustic Way


Commercial Beer Reviews / Left Hand Milk Stout
« on: September 25, 2011, 10:11:41 AM »
Just picked up a 6 of this and it was darn tasty, good mouthfeel too, quite silky, but if it had one problem it seemed alittle too over-carbonated for a stout.

Has anyone else tried this?

Equipment and Software / Brewer's Gloves?
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:11:01 AM »
Do any of you guys use brewer's gloves? I was thinking of looking for some that are maybe both water and heat resistant, do they exist? Do you have any favorite brands? Any info would be helpful!


Other Fermentables / First Soda Brew Day
« on: September 04, 2011, 07:05:55 PM »
My son asked if we could make soda since I brew beer all the time and I thought it was a great idea! I bought a couple packs of gnome soda extract (root beer and vanilla creme) and brewed the creme soda today.

He helped me with the whole process (which was easy peasy) and it didn't take long at all, can't wait to try it!

I highly recommend it if you have kids, its easy and fun to do and only took a few minutes. He is really excited about bringing some to school to share with his friends.

Ingredients / Irish moss storage
« on: August 22, 2011, 10:57:25 PM »
I have a small bottle of irish moss but the label doesn't say anything about how to store it. Does it need to be refridgerated? I've just been keeping it in my "brew tote" with the rest of my equipment since it looked like a dried ingredient.

How do you store yours?


General Homebrew Discussion / First brewing-related injury
« on: August 19, 2011, 09:33:02 AM »
A few days ago I was making a starter and needed to split it into 2 small batches since my main flask wasnt big enough. after they were both done boiling i went to pour the smaller flask into the larger one. I was using a towel to hold the flask, lifted to pour when it boiled over onto my hand. I didn't want to drop the glass flask on the floor so i held it and put it down.

Its a few days later and I still have some blisters but its healing. My first injury making beer in over 13 years.

stupid stupid stupid.

I asked for brewing gloves for xmas. don't let this happen to you, be careful!


All Grain Brewing / First all-grain brewday
« on: August 18, 2011, 05:16:36 PM »
Made my first all-grain beer today and damn it was fun! I don't why I waited this long to try it.

Everything went pretty smoothly despite using the dennybrew batch-sparge method... I'm kidding denny! In all seriousness thanks for the website, I couldn't have done it so smoothly without it, I even hit my target gravity right on the nose.

I was commisioned by my friends to make a Sierra clone for their wedding since its their favorite beer so I'm thinking about taking the recipe, designing a really nice layout and having it printed, framed and matted to go along with the 2 special 1-Liter bottles with labels to match. This part is a surprise and I hope they love it as much as i did making it.

Thanks to everyone on this forum for all of the great info!

Time for a victory beer! Cheers!

Commercial Beer Reviews / Full Sail Pale Ale
« on: July 04, 2011, 11:55:27 AM »
Bought a six of Full Sail Pale Ale last night on the way to a BBQ because i had never seen it before. A nicely rounded beer, both the flavors and bitterness were really well-balanced and i liked the hop flavor, not sure what they use. I only got to drink 3 of them because other people wanted to try it also but I will definately be buying this again.

I might try the IPA next time to see the difference, but the APA is very close to a session beer.

If you see this near you its worth a try.
