Re: MWC Home brew thread

what i got going is called west coast pale ale.
linky___ http://www.mrbeer.com/product-exec/p...flavor_profile

what i was talking about earlier is pretty much what all the MRbeer lovers are saying, they say keep it 2 weeks in the fermenting keg then bottle and let it carb for 2 weeks then basically let it sit at room temp for 2 weeks to let the flavors get along with each other.

i will be picking up that "how to brew" book they sell it at the local home brew shop. when i get some extra cash

Re: MWC Home brew thread

Hey now! I did not realize there were other homebrewers here! Well, since I've been provoked . . .

Currently on tap:

German Sticke Alt
Sweet Stout
American Wheat
Rogue Dead Guy clone (bascially a maibock)
Centennial IPA (Bell's Two Hearted clone)
Batch 100 Barleywine
American Brown ale
Belgian Strong Golden ale

In the fermeters:

Robust Porter

On deck to brew:

January = Simcoe IPA, (because there is not enough IPA in the world)
February = ESB
March = Marzen/Ofest

That's as far as I have planned out right now. Probably two or three brews in April and May before putting the equipment away for the summer.

Brew on!

david

REW, are you aware that How to Brew is available free online?

http://www.howtobrew.com/

That said, supporting John by purchasing his book is a good thing if you have the cash.

Re: MWC Home brew thread

Personally, I prefer the dead tree edition. Not to say that the online version isn't useful, but I do like printed media if I'm doing some serious reading. And, as you say, the author does get a few pennies for it.
