Equipment and Software / The Zymatic has landed!
« on: February 19, 2015, 09:40:20 AM »
Received the Zymatic demo unit yesterday.  I'm working through how to use it and hopefully I'll brew with it this weekend or early next week.  Should be a real learning experience!

General Homebrew Discussion / Help Denny and Drew write their book!

Drew and I are hard at work on a new book called "Homebrew All Stars" and we'd like to ask for your help.  We need to develop baseline demographics about how you brew.  To do that, we've created a survey at .  If you have a few minutes, please take the survey and help us out!  Thanks for your time!

General Homebrew Discussion / New cleaning products
« on: January 28, 2015, 09:46:10 AM »
Well, new to me at least!  I was recently sent a box of samples by Craftmeister, part of the same company that makes BTF Iodophor.  They sent me powdered oxygen wash (like PBW), powdered alkaline wash, and a bottle of the oxygen wash in tablet form.  1 tab per 3 gal.  I want to tell you that this stuff is fantastic!  It dissolves thoroughly and easily, rinses with little effort and most importantly does a killer job of cleaning!  I have no idea how the price compares to PBW, but I can tell you that I will be using this stuff from now on.  It's So much easier to dissolve and rinse than Oxiclean that it kinda makes me not want to use Oxi any more!  If you have access to this stuff, definitely give it a try.

Sorry to sound like an infomercial, but this is something that most people don't know about that will really improve your cleaning.

Going Pro / Where's Tom?
« on: January 26, 2015, 05:05:50 PM »
I had a chance to visit Tom Schmidlin recently at his new brewery, Postdoc.  Also had a chance to talk with Marc, who's doing sales.  Most importantly, I got to try the whole lineup of beers, which were uniformly excellent!  Beatiful brewing system, too.  No wonder Tom looks so happy.

General Homebrew Discussion / A homebrewing milestione
« on: December 20, 2014, 10:17:36 AM »
after nearly 17 years of homebrewing, it's finally come to this....there is nothing home brew related I want for Christmas!  I have all the gear and ingredients I could want or need.  In a way, it's kinda comforting!

Beer Recipes / Seeking Old Ale recipes
« on: December 09, 2014, 10:15:05 AM »
I was just gifted another 3.5 lb. of matsutake mushrooms and I think I'm going to go in the opposite direction if the Golden Shroomy...use an old ale base.  That will be a bit more like the wee heavy base I use with chanterelles and I think the funkinees of the matsus will complement the beer (we'll see huh?).  If you;ve brewed an old ale you were really happy with I'd love to see your recipe!

Ingredients / Golden shroomy

Well, the next mushroom beer is underway....a Belgian Golden Strong with matsutake mushrooms!  A friend dropped off 3+ lb. the other day (gotta love living in OR where you can just go out and pick them!).  I chopped, vacuum packed and froze them yesterday until the beer is brewed and I'm ready to use them.

General Homebrew Discussion / Icezilla SPAM?
« on: December 03, 2014, 02:50:12 PM »
Anybody else getting spammed by Icezilla?  I'm getting 3-4 emails a day to my various addys.  Sure, I like to know about new products, but this is too much.  They have ensured that I will never buy their product.

General Homebrew Discussion / Homebrew All Stars
« on: November 21, 2014, 12:24:29 PM »
I'd like to hear some thoughts on this...what makes a person a Homebrew All Star?  Is it winning awards?  Is it somebody you've heard of or is it somebody who has great ideas whether you've ever heard of them or not?  What  makes a person an All Star?  What's an All Star idea?  And who do you consider to be Homebrew All Stars?
