  1. i went ahead and crashed....now that i think about it @Bonsai & Brew, you're right. the only time i've done that was for lagers.
  2. actual beer question. brewing hazy ipa and used US-04. inkbird set at 65 for 2 weeks. ready to cold crash, but should I do a diacetyl rest for a few days 1st at 68 and THEN cold crash? or doesn't make a difference, just crash it now. crashing b/c there a TON of dry hops in this recipe.
  3. Disagree about bottles. Nothing like waiting a month to try your brew in PET bottles and you discover a bad lid seal and it’s flat. Never has happened to me with glass. I would recommend start collecting glass bottles, a bench capper and an inkbird. If you want to go crazy find a mini fridge to hook it up to.
  4. hmmmm.....i don't know. maybe someone else has a comment about this. doesn't sounds overcarbed.
  5. sounds about right in terms of process. how long did you fridge them? some people suggest 3 days before drinking. what recipe?
  6. more info needed. how long did you ferment, condition/carb and fridge? how much sugar used for carbing? What recipe?
  7. Have clogged my racking arm many times. That can be a mess! But more hops so worth it.
  8. Someone actually asked a MRB question on the MRB forum and everyone is like....😲. LOL!
  9. uuuugh. that looks pretty bad. Could be it's just on top and bottling it was a good decision assuming you stopped well before getting to the gunk. good luck!
  10. I have a new pellet smoker that is pretty much amazing. I am also a fan of peated (Smokey) scotch. What if I put some grains on a cookie sheet in the smoker for a while for a low temp smoke? Maybe a smoked ipa? Is that gross? Or would that be remotely interesting? Should I just stick with ribs?
  11. i need to get to brewing. been a lazy butt lately when it comes to brewing plus I want the weather to be a bit cooler for outside brewing. and i started a business this year and that has taken most of my time as it should. still have 2 on tap in the keezer, but they're about to run out. just my friday rant, sorry!

    Older grain

    I have a sack of unmilled grain I’ve had for about 3-4 months. Does it lose any of its fermentable properties over time? Or is it milled grain that has a short shelf life?
  13. Nice! i still have a little Altbier left in one of my kegs. that was a good one. May step up and brew a kitchen batch this week. it's literally like 106 deg here right now. heat wave for a few more days.
  14. I just need 3 bags of ice. I use a wort chiller and submersible pump in a cooler. Works like a charm. Just a pain in the ass messing with it. I know. I could brew indoors and I have. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a nice chilly morning to brew outside? This fall for sure.
  15. damn..i have a Neptune Pale Ale that I have all the stuff for, but it's just too stinking hot here in NTX right now! I would move somewhere else in a few years, but we have too much freedom here in Texas! maybe a couple of months "brewing vacation" in a few years when I'm an empty nester? just thinking out loud and planning my life, sorry.
