General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Better Beer Scores-Craft Beer U
« on: February 24, 2012, 08:59:15 AM »
This is gonna help me too, I was gonna post about the same thing but you beat me to it. I don't really care about the BJCP exam right now, I've only been brewing for about 9 months and I want to become better at judging beer, appreciating every flavor in it, and detecting off-flavors. I don't know anything about the course but for $200 its not really expensive. Any comments on it?

I tried those once too. I used 4 tabs per bottle and after 3 weeks there was almost no carbonation, if any. After 3 more weeks carbonation was good though, but corn sugar is way better IMO.

I live in Mazatlan, Mexico, a small town on the west coast, and I see that everyday. A lot of americans come here, and some even live here, and I've never seen ONE trying to speak some spanish, they expect everyone in here to understand english. Of course most people here do speak at least some english, since its a touristic place.

I'm actually american, but I've lived here all my life, so english is my second language. I try to practice a lot cause I like to travel to the US pretty often. Mostly because of the beer. ;)

Haha, I'm new to the hobby too. My first batch of pale ale was about 8 months ago, I read Papazian's and John Palmer's book before I started brewing, so I thought I knew what I was doing, but it was a disaster, I actually ended up throwing it away. Tried again the next day and that one came out really good. It became an obsession after that.  ;D

For me it wasn't a specific beer, but a place. Venice alehouse in Venice beach, I was amazed by the beer in there. After that I started reading about beer styles, and found out about craft beer and home brewing. I still don't remember what beers I had in there, I just kept telling the waitress to surprise me and they were all so good. The waitress was hot too.

Thanks a lot for the tips, I hope I can have it ready by christmas to share with my family.

Nah, I guess I can get away without it. I've only been homebrewing for about 4 or 5 months so I'm still learning a lot.


General Homebrew Discussion / Best way to have an ale ready in 3-4 weeks.
« on: November 24, 2011, 06:01:56 PM »
Hi, I wanna make a batch of beer this saturday (haven't decided on the style yet, probably a brown ale or a porter), and I want to have it ready for christmas dinner, so I have about 4 weeks. It has to be bottle conditioned since I don't have a keg. I always bottle condition for at least 3 weeks, I've tried the beer after two weeks, but its always better carbonated and tastes better a week after. I always do primary and secondary fermentation for a total of 2 weeks, so thats 5 weeks. What would be the best way to make it in four? Any suggestions?  ???

Cheers!  ;D
