still waiting for trivets

Well, I haven't brewed it yet since the stove trivets I ordered aren't in yet. (blah blah blah) But here is hoping. Hey Canman! I bought the 64 litre aluminum stock pot sold at Canadian Tire at a reasonable price. I did some research into using aluminum and have concluded that the risk of contaminat...

New Batch time - cooking on my wood stove

Hello forum, been a bit since I posted so I thought I would drop a line on my newest path to beer. A couple months back I stopped brewing after a big fiasco with my propane burner. Luckily, the fiasco did not involve the fire department though the huge carbon mess left me with three days of intense ...

an interesting side note

Brewer's yeast slurry is supposed to be very rich in B complex vitamins. Alcohol is a blood thinner. My wife suffers from a rare blood disease where she is deficient in B6 and B12 vitamins and therefore clots easily. She is on blood thinners daily for the last 6 years. It just occured to me that she...

rectangle cooler - pros and cons

pro-48 litre container holds all my grain for a big 60 litre brew session (even when making my 7% Robust Porter) con- the seams have come apart at the top of the container thus exposing the insulation - no real biggy if you are planning on monitoring your mash every 1/2 hour for temp. If you can fin...

one last thing

I don't know if this will apply to you or not Jay as I don't know how well stocked you will be, but my experience as a retailer tells me to do some things really really well rather than try to do a bunch of things really really poorly. One way you get loyal customers. The other way, you end up with ...

Jeff??? Where is my porter recipe??? Please help me.

I went to search for Irish Red's Fatman's Chocolate Raspberry Porter recipe and couldn't find it. I then searched porter in the recipe index and didn't see it there. I didn't see my recipe either. I searched for stumpwater jack's midnight porter and didn't find it. Since this could be close to a dis...

all things dark and beery

I am looking forward to seeing those recipes. If it isn't too much trouble, could you post your brew notes as well. I have yet to brew with fruit and I have promised my brother-in-law that I will try to make up a raspberry beer for him. He is the one that introduced me to the KLB raspberry wheat. Th...

Brew it man, brew it!

My first brew experience was with a can of stout extract I bought 3 years prior. The resulting beer was good despite the fact that I should have used more fermentables in the brew (long story). My friend just started brewing because he found 8 cans of extract on sale for a buck each. (they came from...

Oh my God, that sounds so good!

Raspberry Chocolate Porter? Raspberry Chocolate Porter? Did you really say Raspberry Chocolate Porter. The only raspberry beer I have had is Kawartha Lakes Brewery's Raspberry Wheat Beer. It is amazing, but I am a porter/stout freak and your porter sounds delicious. Is the recipe a family secret or ...

Hardcore, you are a freak :) Jayhawk, the keg in the back seat of the car rolling to yer buds house is a really good natural high. (and not too bad as far as work load goes ;) Tom, thanks for the link to the malt page. I will check it out soon. By the way, Freon is absolutely correct about kegging. ...

malty malty malty

Grats on getting going Blur! I hope you keep up with this rewarding (hic) hobby. In my extract brewing, I really liked using all malt in the beers because I prefer malty ale. It made the beer a little more expensive, but it made the results more to my liking. I would use two cans of liquid extract i...

Malts around the world

I have a cheap grain source from a maltster in Ontario if I buy 25 kilos at a time or more. It brews really good beer but I wonder about the other two row and six row malts from around the world and what they would do for my beer. Just curious. I have also found a real lack of information on how to ...

Wow, Anyone looking for a brewery...

A church in my hometown is for sale. It is a beautiful stone building and has been on the market for years. Many times I have thought, about how it would make a great brewery or restaurant/brewpub. Ok, the reason I posted this is that the price is right. The congregation is currently building a new ...
