We all love beer and we all love food. So, I am posting my Chili recipe. This is quick and simple. It also the most requested meal from my wife. So, enjoy
Yes, we are an official AHA Home Brew Club. We are found at http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/directories/find-a-club . So, if you are in the Mount Washington Valley area and were thinking about checking out a club, give us a call. We are doing a small intro seminar at Silver Lake Home Center May 13th, 4pm until when ever. It would be a good time to stop bye.
Is it an oxymoron when you are brewing a light ale, (color, ABV) while drinking Dogfish Head Raison D’Etre (8%), and my own All Amarillo IPA (7.4%)?????????????????????
So, for valentines day my wife brought me to my favorite beer store and said go inside and get yourself a mixer-sixer. Being a beer lover, (my wife says: ”lover=snob”), I couldn’t wait to crack one of these new to me beers. But, alas, someone had to give my 3 year old a tub, while my wife made dinner.
So I cracked my Victory Hop Devil IPA, and put my son in the tub. So while my son was in the tub, I could finally relax and enjoy my Hop Devil. Now my bathroom is pretty small, and the toilet sits elevated on a platform. So try to picture this: I am sitting on the step up to the toilet, reading the latest issue of Yankee Brewing, and sipping my beer, which was sitting on my makeshift bar: the toilet seat.
Ok. So I went through a phase where I could afford liquid yeast. I made all the provisions to collect the spent yeast and refrigerate until next brew etc. etc.. Then the economy tanked, and tanked bad. I lost hours at work which equated a 28% pay decrease. So, brewing came to a halt, and so did liquid yeast. I started using dry yeast, as much of the posts I have read, said there was no problem with dry. So I decided to start experimenting with dry yeast.
I just brewed an Amarillo IPA (2 weeks ago) and used Safele 05, as a substitute for my liquid 1056. Original gravity = 1.063, Final gravity 1.006!!! The best I have ever had!!!!! I kegged this IPA today, it may be a little young but it tastes great, and is the result of this drunk blog post!!!
I am a new android user and when I was looking at the must have apps, I came across this one. http://greatbrewers.com/story/beercloud-mobile-app I need this, if only for the coolness factor. Elevate yourself to the next level of “Beer Snob/Nerd”.
Well last night I took the plunge. I completed my very first all grain batch. I had a yeast starter that wasn’t ready for sometime, that had to be used on that day. Therefor I started at 5pm and didn’t get done until 11:30pm. It was a long night but, I feel that it went well. The O.G. was much better then I expected. When I checked on the fermenter this morning, it already started. This what I brewed, Cream Ale. This time next week I will update the F.G. and get ready for kegging.
Kegged it yesterday and got a F.G. 1.006, can’t wait to start on it.
