some i enjoy....

brew like a monk
extreme brewing
tasting beer
the brewmasters table
radical brewing
designing great beers

I have all these except for "tasting beer".  I would agree with phillamb168 that Designing is not exactly bedtime friendly.  Brewing Classic Styles and the Yeast book by Jamil Z and Chris W are also excellent books.  The Yeast book is not very bedtime friendly as it gets quite technical.

Congratulations!  Do you have a pub or do you bottle/keg your beers?  It would be fun to visit this summer since I live in Appleton, WI.   :)

I will be brewing up a Belgian Pale Ale today.

Wow, That fish looks delicious!  What a better way to still enjoy the smoking habit without having to weather the cold temps.  ;D    Of course, we will be here when you need your brewing fix.   :)

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: 1026 British Cask Ale yeast

I recently bottled an ordinary bitter that used the British Cask Ale yeast.  I have not noticed any sulfur flavors but I will have to try it again just to double check.

Yeh, but I've had that same bottle of Knob Creek for "at least" two years.  Most whiskey drinkers probably plow through a bottle a month if not sooner... so $40 is pretty inexpensive over that time frame... unlike buying a single bottle of Pliney The Elder, etc.  which compared to the KC, they are very expensive... one sitting and they're Gone.   :'(

I do the same thing with whiskey/bourbon/scotch.  I like to have some decent bottles of these in the house but can't exactly afford to drink them up quickly.  Plus, I prefer to drink beer more often than other stuff anyway.  I do end up spending some decent money on various bottles of beer which, of course, end up being drank in one session.  Either way I enjoy it all.

Ding, Ding, Ding,Ding.  We have a winner!

Picked one up today for $1.35 at the thrift shop in town.  Just started waxing the tops.  Great Idea! enough room for a manageable amount of wax, keeps it warm, and was cheap.

Awesome!  I'm glad to hear that it works well.  Finding one at a thrift shop for a cheap price is a definite bonus!

Do you burn stacks of $100's as firewood and pave your driveway with gold bricks too?

hmmm, that sounds like fun. Although the gold bricks in the driveway might provide a bit too much glare on sunny days.   :P

A friend of mine said that electric potpourri burners work well for melting the wax.  I haven't tried it yet but I figure it would be worth a shot.

I would say store on the side just like wine.

Welcome to the obsession, err hobby, and to the forum!  It is a great hobby with so much to learn.  Making all-grain brews is definitely more fun although requires more time.

Happy Brewing,

Bottled the Chamomile Pale Ale and the IPA on Friday.  Now I just need to transfer the Old Ale to secondary for some aging.

Sweet!  Looks like you are well on your way!  Hopefully I will be converting my chest freezer with a collar and tap heads this year.
