Drinking one right now, and....

Thanks for the responses! I've got one going right now, and I agree with you slothrob - I think it's just a perceived blueberry flavor. It's funny because the only time I actually detect blueberries is when I'm thinking about blueberries - otherwise it is an orangy/mild spice taste. Almost a FrootLo...

Recipe for Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat?

Looking for an extract or partial mash recipe for a clone of Leinie Sunset Wheat. I'm not a big fan of wheat beers but I had one on tap at Applebees waiting for some carry out, and they put this huge slice of orange on the rim - I was skeptical when I saw that - but wow, what an awesome beer. It was...

Electric Heating Elements & brewing

Listerines, For those of you who are using electric water heater elements for heating water/wort/etc..., How have they been working for you? I've been looking at the 1500w 120v screw-in type elements to make my maiden voyage into all-grain brewing. Wottaguy has a cool-looking brewing setup on his bl...

Wottaguys Brewing Setup

Ron,

Your blog URL is in your profile....

EDIT:

I like the pics of your brewing setup in your blog, I'm getting some good ideas from it.

I really don't want to hijack Popiseed's thread with questions on it though, so I think I'll start a new one.

Jeff

I dry hopped once and the recipe I used said to use a small nylon hop bag to put the hops in. Boil the bag for 10-15 min to sanitize it, then put the hops in it, pull & tie off the string, and drop it in. You could also use a nylon stocking and just tie a knot in it. I had no problems with hop remna...

Not sure if you figured it out yet on your own, but I have several troubleshooting guides that talk about fruity flavors and aromas. I'm not a chemist or an expert on brewing by any means, but I have some references that I use for troubleshooting beer problems that seem to be pretty much spot on, an...

How to use a conical fermenter?

I have the Minibrew 8-gallon plastic conical fermenter. http://www.minibrew.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=5 I've used it once already for an IPA, which turned out pretty good but it had a faint sour apple aftertaste to it, probably acetylaldehyde that didn't get fully converted into ethyl alco...

I got pretty good results from adding a ball valve spigot with a bazooka screen to my boiling pot. I did the project easily myself and it was much cheaper than buying a brewpot with the valve already installed. The March-April 2007 issue of BYO magazine has a good article on this, but I made mine we...
