    Thanks for the reminder, I'll definitely try and account for that. I'm thinking about trying out Citra hops since I've never used them before. Perhaps Citra and chinook? I'll muddle the idea around...

    I think it's finally time

    I've finally worked out the logistics to brewing beer in my space and time constraints. I'm going to keep it small (2-2.5 gallons) so that I can fit the beet into my smallest keg. From there, I'll...

    Totally digging the setup! I can almost smell the grains. I would totally be down to a brew day, but I'm willing to bet we're not local to each other. I'm in Virginia.

    The four things that come to mind from minimizing foaming are:

    pour height
    beer and glass temperature
    cleanliness of glass

    The colder the beer and glass, plus the lower the...

    Hearing numbers like that make me think there is more at work than SG for krausen formation. Perhaps it has something to do with protein formation in different beers?

    twenty years? I'm afraid I don't really know. Technically, if everything is sanitized and done properly beer and cider should keep for that long, but I can't say that they'll all taste good. From a...

    Best of luck on your endeavor! Might I suggest brewing something you intend to age, that way when you have a kid you'll have a nice big brew waiting for you? Cider also ages well!

    I get that, and you COULD naturally carbonate in a keg, but that's a whole nother can of worms. I force carbonate, but I've found that keying in the pressure vs temperature lets you pick from a wide...

    I'm thinking about a scotch ale (think Founder's Dirty Bastard) to sip on for the cold months. Stout sounds good too, glad it turned out well! Hope to hear back on the amber!
