    Funny thing. I brewed a black ipa last weekend. I wanted a nice sweetness to the finished product. Traditionally you would use a north west yeast strain, but i went with london ale III because i wanted some english fruity sweet flavors. Turns out, london III attenuates more than northwest ale yeast... SOB

    Anyone on here have any insight as to a good digital pH tester?

    Cleaning 740 ML PET Bottles

    OMG, ive been in this forum for 5 years. I feel like a jedi. When someone posts a question, i just sit back and wait and then “boom” the exact response that i was anticipating comes. You can see it coming.

    Miller Lite

    3 zombies partial mash kit- $35 divided over your 19 bottles- $1.84 per bottle / $11.04 per sixer 3 Floyd’s Zombie Dust is probably like $14 for a sixer? I’m guessing thats $2.33 per bottle. Not bad my ipa I’m brewing tonight cost me $3.12 per six pack. Let’s just say that a sixer of two hearted is $10? I just bought a crap ton of beer from Tavour for approx $18 for a sixer. Im just kinda typing out loud right now. Following along at home.

    When i was dreaming of owning a brewery / bakery i really liked that you could just hoist out the basket and set it on something and wheel it over to the bakery.

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    I’ll say $1.15 per lb of grain= $28.75 columbus hops were home grown so I’ll say they were free even though the time and labor certainly would argue that cascade hops were free, pays to go to events and what not golding hops I’ll say $5 $20 for a lb of mosaic comes out to $2.25 for this batch throw in $5 to cover water chemistry and whirlfloc yeast was approx $14 Grand total- $55 its a 10 gallon batch- 1280 $0.04296 per ounce, $0.52 per 12 oz pour. $3 for a sixer, $12 per case

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    Pretty excited for Saturday’s brew day. I’m gonna try to go as simple as possible. Kettle, grain basket, hop basket, plate chiller. That’s it. No pumps, no sparge, no whirlpool. Let’s try simple for a change

    Miller Lite

    Ive waited, and i bit my tongue but now i will speak. I agree with @RickBeer. If you’re getting into homebrewing and you want to mimick bud light or coors, youre better off buying it in the store for the ridiculous cheap price. Wasnt this hobby a way for beer lovers to make the beers that they couldnt just run out to the store and buy? I get that these days its hard to not be able to find any style of beer in the liquor store but then most times i can brew any style for a fraction of the cost of the craft beer mark up. I guess i should mind my own business. Maybe the OP was asking because he wants to make a beer that he can share with others and be proud that he can make an easy drinking beer like a bud light. I did the same thing when i started so i could drink my homebrew with my father who has cheap taste. Im just sayin that if a person enters this hobby soley to brew a bud light like beer then theyre going to find out in a hurry that it is not economical, especially with MRB prices to do so and that person will more than likely leave the hobby quickly. Brew what makes you happy, youre the one drinking it, just be realistic in your expectations.

    Partial Mash

    Thata right, i think thats when he was working at miller that he was talking about switching over. i did hear on a different podcast that sierra nevada is experimenting heavily with cryo hops

    Saison de Frais

    I tried to just do the investigation but let someone else guess. Heres the problem with that. @Bonsai & Brew posted this around 8 or 9 pm right? Thats when all you old men drink your warm milk, take your liver pills and head to bed. Meanwhile im slaving away at work and at 1am when i got home i was delighted to have a little game to play. You guys were sleeping, i was winning. Go me

    Partial Mash

    Im 90% sure even sierra nevada doesnt use whole leaf hops anymore. Was it Mitch Steele who used to work there? Whoever it was, I listened to a podcast with him and he was talking about the transition of moving to pellet hops
