The place is exactly the same. 12 taps of craft brew, 10 beer vaults full of beer. The fantastic wednesday $6 pint night is still on and the $5 cover charge has...

To my surprise the place was closed and small A4 paper stuck on the door, saying something about payment of rent and...

    Wyeast 1056 V Us-56

    Hi Guys I'm yet to use both yeasts and compare. I was just after anybodies opinion as to whether the finished product turns out pretty similar (in the end). I was reading in the latest copy of Zymurgy about their comparisons between dry and wet 56. They seem to conclude with limited data and...

    Ground Corriander

    I attempted a Hoeggarden-y style beer with crushed corriander seed and orange peel. But the corriander spice seems to have all but disappeared by the time I bottled it. This did not happen when I used ground corriander in a previous attempt. The current attempt was with: ESB Fresh Wort Wheat...

Im not sure what exactly what the problem is, or what is causing it. Ive tried different yeasts and different styles of beers...
