  1. I'm doing alright, you don't need to wait for it to swell up before you make the starter.
  2. I finally found some time since Nov 2012 2.5 gal Jamil's Evil twin clone 2013 total : 2.5 gal pipeline : 2 gal Wee Heavy 1 gal IPA 2 gal Saison

  4. Dump them into a trash bag and throw it in the dumpster. Sometimes I save a few cups if I'm going to make some bread.
  5. basic brewing is good. you might want to check out brewingtv on Northernbrewer.com

I guess the main draw back would be having to replace the filters every time, but it looks like an easy way to clarify beers without the wait time. http://morebeer.com/view_product/5759/103554/Beer_and_Wine_Plate_Filter_Kit_ Or this one http://morebeer.com/view_product/16769/103554/Beer_and_Wine_Filtering_Kit I've never seen the need for one, especially once I started Kegging. As long as you don't move the keg around a lot and are using a pretty flocculation yeast (llike I usually do), all beers after the first 3 or so usually come out crystal, you could watch TV through it, clear. Pushing all that beer from one keg to another also always seemed like a waste of CO2 to me, as well. Filtering is definitely one of those things that never seemed, to me, worth the money or effort. I agree, that's what livers are for.
  7. C120 will definatly effect the flavor if you need color use carafa special 2
  8. no you don't need a diffuser, but the beer should be cold. I have had my regulator set to 11 psi for the past 8 months and I get perfect pours every time.
  9. yep just hook it up to your desired PSI and leave it be for a week or two and your ready to go.
  10. Welcome, Now you know what green beer taste like. Give it another 3 weeks or so and I'm sure you'll be happy with it carbonation and conditioning take time and with that time come great things including head retention, in the meantime why not brew another batch to help with the wait.
  11. I'm a 1/4 mile south of Michigan, When I was looking for bottles some time ago I went to a liquor store and asked if I could buy there non twist off deposits from them they had no problem with it! .10 cents each $2.40 a Case might be worth looking into just be sure to wash them up real good
  12. What else went into this Christmas time Ale ? Pine Trees and reindeer :silly: Seriously I'm looking forward to hearing how it comes out too.
  13. So you brewed it 2 weeks ago and dumped it already ? Probably wasn't even done fermenting yet....
