Re: Brewing Equipment For Sale

One brew day a year should do it. With all the new Ontario breweries opening up, these should sell fast.

Re: Kawartha Craft Beer Festival June 20 2015

I waited 45 minutes for a Vienna Lager and they ran out. The brewery beside them ran out very quickly. Yes, I am sure next year they will serve beer quicker and bring way more beer. There was a water cooler there but it was warm. I assume it was for rinsing glasses. We left early because of lack of ...

Kolsch. Pils malt, munich and vienna with Tettnanger hops. Took just over 3 weeks to ferment out. Wyeast 2565 takes longer to finish than my lager yeast.

Build Bigger LCBO Stores

I hear a lot about shelf space being limited in most or not all LCBO stores. My solution is to build bigger stores. I mean big LCBO stores. If the LCBO is serious about Craft Beer, make the stores bigger. I mean they certainly have the money especially with a monopoly on spirits for one. Take Total ...

Re: What're you brewing right now?

Brewing a Kolsch with Wyeast 2565 with the exact same recipe as my Pilsner. Just a simple experiment to see how different they taste. The reason for doing this is the last time I made a Kolsch, it took longer to make than my Pils did.
