    What’s everyone brewing

    I just tapped a California Common and a Kolsch and bottled "Thing"--what was supposed to be a kettle sour, but fermented out on it's own before I got to boil it. Next month, I'll put my daughter's 21st birthday beer on tap. It's a four year old Barleywine. Then I start on my other daughter's...

    Reusing Unwashed Yeast

    During the pandemic, I've made some changes to my brewing process. One is to modify recipes to use what I've got on-hand to minimize trips to the homebrew store. Part of this includes reusing yeast. In White and Zainasheff's "Yeast", it is advised not to reuse yeast without washing it. IOW...

    2020 Lagunitas The Waldos' Special Ale

    I've been buying a case of this beer for the past few years when it comes out in April. It's a shame it only comes out once a year. This year's batch is down from 11.7% to 10.8% ABV. As best I can recall from last year's batch, the aroma is nearly the same or maybe a little more dank...

    New Tap running Foam

    A longer hose will result in lower pressure at the faucet, so, all other things being equal, a longer hose will foam less than a shorter one. Is the beer coming out of the faucet quickly? If so, try a longer hose. Temperature also affects foaming: the warmer, the more foam. Does the left side...
