The Buffalo Theory – by Cliff Claven (Cheers)
“Well ya see, Norm, it’s like this… A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for [...]
Finally was able to purchase all the items needed to make my kegerator.
All the homebrew forums recommend using the Sanyo 4912M fridge which is available from Best Buy for $200 and with all the photos and tips there was no reason to doubt them. I must admit drilling a 3″ hole in the [...]
So I finally got all the needed equipment to convert my 70qt Coleman Extreme cooler into a Mash Tun.
Mash Tuns are used for All Grain brewing. So for a small budget I was able to build a nice piece of equipment to move myself into the next phase of homebrewing. All [...]
Last Saturday I brewed my 1st partial mash which was an Oktoberfest with guest brewer Gaylord Fokker. It was also my 1st attempt to move the brew process outside. For those of you who don’t live in the Northeast, this time of year gets quite cold at times. Conditions where 30 degrees F, 15mph winds [...]
I have been slacking on my posts lately, but about a month ago I ventured into doing my 2nd homebrew considering the disappointment I had with Homebrew Batch 001. This time around I got a lot of positive feedback from the forums on RateBeer with where my errors most likely occurred causing the [...]
So tomorrow I’ll be brewing a Belgian Dubbel. Destined for blueberry’s. But since THAT beer isn’t my brainchild, what I am excited about is racking my clone into the secondary and adding #15 of tart cherries! In two weeks it should be ready and I’m sure it will sell out fast. Since I’m not [...]
Bad news on my 1st homebrew — Its contaminated!!
How do I know? Sour taste!
Continuing from my last post:
Last week Tuesday(10/02/2007) I scrubbed all the bottles out uses a bottle brush and sanitizing solution and placed them onto the racking tree. On Wednesday (10/03/2007) I transferred the brew from [...]
Thanks to gaylord fokker for his inspiration for me to start homebrewing my own beer.
Luckily we live near a homebrew store and they where more than willing to ensure me that I was getting everything I needed and that I was capable to make my own brews. So basically I got one [...]
Well I posted about the Arrogant Bastard Ale before, but it just got a little better.
This is the OAKED version of the same beer, that is aged in American Oak Barrels… I appreciate a good wine that has an Oak flavor and to see this in a beer, I simply [...]
I have had this on tap before and was impressed how good this was. So I finally got the chance to pick up a bottle from my local beer store and I must say… its still really good.
As the bottle states, “Your Not Worthy”… see what you think!
