  1. just bottled my last farm house ale for the summer, will be saving a few to enter the state fair home brewers contest this sept. that is......if I don't drink it all....
  2. Man i'm sorry to hear about that, my shepard is hitting 13 now and when she goes I dnt know if I could ever find another awesome dog like her again
  3. one of VERY few glasses of my Fantrastica Farmhouse Ale
  4. and I thought I was flying over Anartica there for a moment, Whew!
  5. Rick has finally exposed himself to us all!
  6. my looking forward to farm house ale leaked out of the mini keg and into the bottom of the fridge. I did however get a few glasses, and thought about licking the remaining up bcuz it was so good, but the bottom of my fridge doesn't look so good nowadays

      I did quit brewing til October, so now i'll go crazy

  8. beer wars

    probably 1/2 ounce tettnang @ 60 min. and 1/2 ounce cluster for aroma @ 10 min. depends too on the extra grain additives, would they be in ounces or pound? i'm assuming ounces? or you cud do halleratau @ 60 min., Tettnang @ 20 min. and cluster @ 5 min.
  9. this might work since i'm a non smoker, I don't have to worry about blowing myself up drinking a beer
  10. I use a sawz all but make sure you're not drunk, u may mess up some of the bottles, plus use protective gear to protect the plastic bottles from further damage
  11. beer wars

    throw in some tettnang and cluster hops ( favorite in Mexican cervezas and lagers ) and do a White Labs Mexican lager starter
  12. when I use the LBK's, I just refrigerate 2 gallons of tap water the day before
  13. I was suppose to have a sampling session this last saturday but no one showed up, so I drank all of it! at least I can get 100% positive feedback that way
  14. No! I haven't!!! I wish I would have thought of that! Maybe its where the " cidery" taste can be coming from too? And all this time I was thinking my ABV was around 5-7 % and with that fuel adjunct added it could have been around at least 7-10 %!!!
  15. I basically did a small hopped up northwest pale ale. turned out pretty mild, but I didn't want to turn it into a wacky ipa, which isn't hard to do. and did use the wyeast northwest pale ale yeast, and quite frankly really didn't notice a huge change in flavor profile like I was hoping. next time i'll save a few bucks and just use under the lid yeast
