Ok, here's the deal. I have preached and preached about common sense in home brewing. I have shouted from the counter top. I have ranted I have raved about not spending too much. I have tried to show you all that you can...

video of the beer temperature logger // next extent it to become a fuzzy logic controller and maybe other things.. Made with Arduino Uno R3, EthernetShield, and a prototyping board, Dallas 1-wire digital temperature sensors, wire, zip ties, no hot glue this time - but I may employ it to help hold in place other puzzle pieces.

Cheers!

These are probably 5 yrs old. They started growing hops their 2nd year.

I think I just had an epiphany - the #1 required tool in beer brewing is not grains and hops, and fermentors, but rather a towel!

Don't forget your towel!

I brewed up a porter yesterday; one of my most active fermentations so far. I plan to add some cold pressed coffee to it and bottle it for my beach vacation next month.

There was a massive water main break a few days ago, and they are advising us to boil our water. It's also pretty hot and muggy out. So, just like the French/Belgians of the past, who had no clean water and needed hydration after working in the fields, I'm drinking (and brewing!) a Saison.

Trying to squeeze in a 2nd brew today too - my 2x Gold winning Witbier.

If you haven't already switched to BIAB (or at least have the technique in your brewing arsenal) consider this: I just finished brewing an all grain kolsch from the thought "I should brew today, what should I make?" firing along my neural pathways to 5 gallons of wort chilling in the fridge, cleanup completely done, sitting in my recliner drinking a lovely farmhouse from Three Barrel brewing and posting this in about 4 hours! That's barely longer than it takes to brew an extract kit! I know I'll be fitting a lot more brews in after work now instead of waiting for a free weekend...Slainte!

My BIAB brew days usually go six hours from getting my stuff out of the basement to putting it back when complete. If I pre-stage my water/pot and have my grains crushed and ready to go, I can cut about an hour off of that.

thanks!  it works well, you just won't want to fill it to the top without some kind of a lid, because it takes time for them to soak up...  and they will fall out, also periodically take it out and let the hop juices flow out, kind of like making tea :-)

This is an amber ale I brewed up a few weeks ago, and my first kegged beer. I like the shorter carbonation time of kegging...but I need to put more Co2 on this keg. The LHBS didn't have the specific malt the recipe called for so I had to go a little darker (it called for Munich malt extract, and I used a "Vienna" for the base). Overall I like it and look forward to finishing the keg!

I find kegging carbonation is superficial as opposed to bottle priming I have been kegging for 3 yrs now recently wanted to try bottle's just to check what's the fuss is all about, my my carbonation is full and lasts longer when bottle priming also hops aroma is distinguishable in bottle for me that is..

+rocco moco​ But why try to brew alcohol in a beer? Either add alcohol to beer, or brew the beer yourself.

Almost all homebrewers started this way; A couple of cans of malt extract, some specialty grains we didn't really understand, a package of dry yeast, a kettle, a plastic fermenter and a dream that we could make great beer at...
