I learned my lesson by buying Craft Beer on sale from the Beer Store. It was on sale for a reason and I tasted that reason on the first sip.

Black IPA in a week or so. Using Amarillo and Centennial @ 20, 10 5, and flameout. I am going with Horizon ( 11% AA ) @ the 60 min. mark to kick it off.

Do You Care About LCBO Strike

Just like the topic says, me as a homebrewer do not care if they go on strike. However, I don't want them to go on strike because it will hurt the small pro brewers in this province. I never, ever go to those bastards called the Beer Store, but I am a regular customer of the LCBO. I am in there twic...

They must be hurting in sales of their regular piss beers. Good, I hope it continues. I won't be buying this beer.

After brewing IPA'S for a few years now, it is a big change sampling this beer. It turned out okay, just hard to get used to the citrus hops not being in your face.

I kegged my clone and am now using Gelatin for a few days. My clone had surprising bitterness. The citrus hop taste is light, but I guess this is the style. I'll update more after it is carbed up aged a bit.

I plan on getting a dozen or so cases of beer ahead for the summer. I don't brew much in the summer. I couldn't fathom getting that much beer ahead. Quite impressive.

I made a similar brew yesterday. I used Amarillo and Centennial because I have 2 lbs. each of these hops and no Cascade. Other than that, it too is bubbling happily away. The wort had lots of hop aroma,

Double brewday on the weelend. I am brewing a lager from a stepped up smack pack of Wyeast Urquell. Never used this yeast before. The other one is my standard Blonde Ale. I am using up all my older 2 row and specialty grains. It is that time of year to use up all my old inventory of malt. Nothing is...

Noticed workers working on the outside of a building next to the Post Office in Millbrook. This may be the future home of this Brew Pub. I'll check it out soon.

I have been homebrewing for 30 years and I must owe the gov't thousands of dollars in tax revenue. Too bad for them, they don't deserve it.
