  1. I was very thankful only one of mine exploded. I am still finding glass from that. I was just amazed to find glass imbedded in wall on he opposite side of the room.
  2. Sorry to hear that Phil, but you did the best thing. After my last bottle explosion I am watching all my bottles very carefully.
  3. I use filtered water from the refrigerator. I bottle in 12oz and 22oz glass bottles.
  4. I think I just might have to try a few of those. Nice selection.
  5. I work from home so the drive to the LHBS is a nice escape so I just go there as I need to, I only plan 1 or two batches at a time.
  6. Great job! That one does seem to take awhile to condition but it really is pretty good for what it is. A bit of lime does wonders for it also. Keep at it and you will be as 'messed' up as the rest of us. :woohoo:
  7. Do a quick search on 'online beer supplies' you will find tons of them.
  8. Are you up by Sioux City, Ia they have this place http://www.wineandotheroldthings.com/ there could be others. It sounds like that is the area you might be in if Omaha and Lincoln are that far.
  9. Ink, I know you like Stone so wasn't sure if you had ever tried making this one. http://blog.stonebrew.com/index.php/stone-15th-anniversary-escondidian-imperial-black-ipa/

But if it's weird and kinky I'm all for it. :chug:Cascadian dark ale, or a India dark ale or one of the other names they call them. I am sure you could do something weird or kinky with them.
  11. I have stirred and not. I have noticed no real difference.

  13. Not to bad actually. I ended up destroying a 6 pack + with getting over zealous with a wing capper.
  14. There are great, patient and very understanding people here. We all have our moments but someone will always answer questions honestly.
  15. "mtsoxfan" post=386833 said:OK I stand corrected. Black patent malt is kilned to the point of carbonization. Use in small quantities. Still haven't seen it advertied as burnt, but burnt it is.... I'm feeling smarter already.. It is burnt and gives a burnt note, I used it for my CDA. I have a stout in the works I am using midnight wheat to get the color without the burnt flavor. Also using Carafa II and MFB Kiln coffee.
  16. "BrownstotheBone" post=386837 said: "RickBeer" post=386814 said:No. Drink it after 48 hrs. in the frig. Hummmm.... never drank one IN the fridge. I'll have to try that! :silly: It's much better than in the shower!
  17. Let that one condition for about 8 weeks. It will be much better then. To me the Hop Head part of that brew was a bit misleading. I expected more hop bitterness from it and it was never really there. It was good but just not what I expected.
  18. I have pitched yeast at 90f I would not recommend doing that but the yeast was fine I brought the temp down to 70f within a hour. Everything seemed to be fine. You should be ok. The standard around here for fermenting is 3 weeks in the lbk and 4 weeks CCing at room temp. Since you are using a cooler you really should invest in thermometer so you can tell the temps in there. Mid 60's seem to work well for fermenting with the (standard Mr. Beer yeast). Oh and welcome! :borg:
  19. I have never thought of asking them, but I may have to try this out. One of the brews I am working on cloning is a local brew house and this my get me a step closer.
  20. Not all that 'odd' http://www.twistedtea.com/ The only thing I really drink other than beer is tea, I have never tried something like this but would be interested in seeing some recipes.
  21. Hop away. I am sure a few here will link the hop utilization graph ( I don't have it handy). I have an extract brew I use 7 hops with. There are people that do more. Brew it how you like it. :banana:
  22. "alb" post=384527 said:Congratulations! But I'll bet you're not really done. It seems homebrewers can't help tweaking things just a little from time to time! :gulp: Oh isn't this the truth. I have an IPA recipe I love but I am still messing with it, I am on version 4 now.
