    Cloudy Beer

    Ive made over 100 AG brews in the past three years, and have had some pretty good results. But after a 3-5 month break, of the last five brews Ive made, four of them have come out cloudy. Why might this be? I dont recall changing any processes, they all taste fine, they all just look like...

    Two Year Old Beer Finally Comes Good.

    About 2 years ago, I started toying with the wild Brett from the bottom of Orval bottles and brewed a mighty sour tripple. Sadly, the brett got into everything and EVERY beer started off good then ended up sour after about 6 weeks in the bottle. So.. I got all new gear, problem solved. But while...

    My old reliable 40litre rubber maid mash tun is showing signs of ware and will need to be replaced soon. I would like to make double batches and am considering my options. With the efficiency gains that we now understand come from a constantly stirred mash, I was looking at making a mash tun...

    Wheat Flour

    Ive made a witbier I'm kinda keen on and was gonna re brew, but I thought I might substitute some of the grain bill for plain flour to lighten the finished colour.

    0minutes Yeast Lag

    On the weekend, I cropped the 3" krausen of yeast off the witbier that has been happily chugging along from 1050 down to 1015 and hoiked it in to the 1076OG Belgian IPA in the fermenter sitting right next to it. Yeast took off immediately. Airlock activity within minutes and within an hour there...

    In my quest for tasty strong belgian beers, Ive managed to make lovely pale Belgian quaffers up to 10%, so far.
