Mike, whatever you do, promise you will go to Slows. Try to go during a slow time of day to reduce your wait time. But even if there is a wait, wait it out. Opt for a seat at the bar if that will reduce your wait too. Once you tuck into your ribs (opt for the baby backs), pulled pork, mac & chee...

Galaxy DIPA. Hop aroma has faded a little, but is still very much there.

This is a great hop.

Well the batch is in the fermenter, and unless I read my hydrometer incorrectly (which there is a good chance of) I somehow got an SG of 1.800. I only used 3.5lbs of the liquid malt extract and 2.5 pounds of granulated cane sugar. Unfortunately we could not get dry extract in time and ended up usin...

I wired up a dual stage ranco a while back and im very happy with it so far. I'd strongly recommend to anyone that they invest in a S/S thermowell. I played around with having th eprobe in the air, taped to the carboy and in the carboy. The freezer/heater kicked on far less frequently with the probe...

Re: Kettlevalve installation

I just picked up a kettlevalve and kettlescreen along with a brewmometer to kit out my 34L kettle and was wondering if anyone has installed these before. I see the instructions for the valve recommend either a 7/8 inch hole saw or a step bit. I've looked up step bits and they appear to be the best ...

Racked an Ommegang Hennepin clone to secondary. Very happy with the flavour/aroma profile. The WLP500 got it down to 1.007. Now chilling it to 35F for 2 weeks of conditioning/flocculation. Also whipped up yet another batch of Apfelwein. I may add some spice to this once fermentation is complete. Cin...

To get the relevant facts straight (yet again): The CFIA enforces the Canadian Food & Drugs Act, and it's associated Regulations. The Canadian Food & Drug Regulations do not provide guidelines for Potassium Ferrocyanide, with respect to beer. However, they do provide guidelines for potassiu...

The Bell's was surprisingly good given its low ratings on BA and RB. It struck me as a tasty and refreshing cross between a hoppy blonde and pale wheat ale, so I can see why it gets marked poorly as an APA, since it does not conform to that style very well (aside from the fairly strong astringent b...
