General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Drinking Only Homebrews
« on: March 21, 2014, 06:22:12 AM »
i prefer my homebrew, but i like trying new beers and getting an idea of what i want to brew next. or if i have a recipe in mind, i like to hunt down a similar beer and try it before i buy anything for it.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / strawberry milk chocolate stout
« on: March 20, 2014, 06:06:46 AM »
Hey guys. so I did a strawberry Milk chocolate stout, partial mash, and i used 3 lbs of strawberries. i froze them before hand, then i added them to the boil at the last 15 minutes. they are now sitting in the primary. i didnt taste much strawberry when i tasted the wort, and i was wondering if the flavor is going to be more prominate from sitting in the primary or am i going to have to add extract? my goal is to avoid extract if i can. i believe extract flavors taste weird or can be over powering.

Events / bottle exchange?
« on: January 30, 2014, 09:22:47 AM »
anyone in the lakewood or littleton, colorado area know of any bottle exchanges or wants to start one up? i have a friend who is starting to get into the beer world with me and i have heard of bottle exchanges. I know that it is a good way to try new beers and meet new people. Any thoughts? (if you follow me on other sites and saw these posts already, i apologize)

thanks everyone. i think i will play with it, definitely. i love fruity 'girly' flavors, but that one was too much. hopefully i can tone it down. :) i cant wait to try it.

i was looking into brewing an apricot beer, but i tried one from Pyramid and it was really perfumy.  is there a way to make it so its not so over powering and taste like perfume? i want the flavor, the sweetness, but i dont want it to kick me in the mouth with floral. any good recipes out there or am i reaching?

I have had the Emril collection for almost 10 years now and it works great for me.  I also like that diamond plated stuff for skillets. I dont think these are too expensive (all gifts) but they have lasted me quite some time and still sturdy.

Thanks guys. I do have one question. Would anyone drink a beer I'm trying to make: Hibiscus Hellhound. It will be a blonde, with hibiscus, lime and habenero. My inspiration is a lime habenero hibiscus cheese cake I made and it was so good. So Iwonder if the flavors would be just as good in a beer.
