  2. That fresh hop beer had some wild yeast in it from white labs but I don't think it was supposed to sour it... Drink ASAP.  I gave one to a buddy and he said it was really fizzy but he only had it in the fridge for a few hours and he said he was carrying it in his back pocket, rookies... 

     

    PS, yes I know everyone can see this.  I have no shame

  3. Starting judging at a local comp.

      Ive been busted with lotion in pics before. This however is sun tan lotion. 

       

      This is a pergola which hops will grow on. We have zero trees in our yard so we need shelter from the sun. This is a small one, a practice one for possibly a bigger one later

  10. @MiniYoda what do you brew? 2 gallon batches? 5 gallon batches? All extract? Partial or AG? Have you ever done a BIAB? How big is your kettle?

    1. Creeps McLane

      Creeps McLane

      So.... forgive me for prying but why do you have to shut down? Theres yeasts and styles that ferment above 65. My saison is at a steady 75 right now. Cant you just make a pale ale and throw some saison yeast in it? If it gets hot, great! If it stays pretty cool, great! Wheats, wits, and pretty much any belgian beer ferments warm. Brewing based on the season is half the fun.

      well, thanks a lot... Now I have 8 cans of HME coming to my house.  Now I just have to decide how to split the cans.  4 in a 5 gallon batch for approx 5.? ABV or two and pick up some grains for a p-mash. Happy to finally try my Kolsch yeast!!!

  13. I was watching an episode of brew t.v. on youtube, a series by northern brewer. they were brewing a super hopped ipa all grain 5 gallon recipe using 19 ounces of hop varieties!!! and 22 lbs of grain, which is almost dble the grain bill! I can't imagine how that turned out???

    1. Creeps McLane

      Creeps McLane

      We brewed a 10 gallon recipe with 19 oz of hops and I thought that was freaking insane... My buddy just brewed a double IPA.  I know that had a crap ton of hops too.  Ill have to let you know how much exactly

  21. hey Creeps! man i'm telling I've been watching those videos on youtube about brewing with the Grainfather, and man.... that is nice!! just wish it was a 10 gallon set up, but still basically takes out a lot of extra hard work. this would be especially perfect just for an all grain bill, and if one does extract just do other way. i'm biting my lips.........doesn't help with this disease and all Lol!

      Grain father is nice and all but I think BIAB is the way to go. $200 kettle, http://www.homebrewsupply.com/amcyl-15-gallon-brew-kettle-w-3-piece-ball-valve.html , outdoor cooker, wort chiller and you're basically set. We're talking under $350. That kettle is the one we have and we've done a ten gallon batch in it easily. Hold temp like a mofo too. We have an outdoor cooker and an indoor induction burner, induction takes longer but you're in the comfort of your own home. We installed a range hood though too. Oh and I got a canning rack from wal mart for $12 for my false bottom that I just use for mashing. 

  22. was on ebay earlier this morning, and Target is selling Bavarian Wiessbier for $5.68/ can plus $4.00 shipping, but I got 4 cans free shipping, then theres a sales tax of about $2.00, still 4 cans for under $25.00!! limited quantities

      Just bought 5 cans. $28 total with our red card and free shipping. Thanks for the heads up
