2.75 Gal water at 175 degrees F.

In the sack I had:
2 lbs Briess smoke malt
1 lb Muntons Crushed Pale 2 Row Barley Malt
1 lb Muntons Crystal 2 Row Barley Malt

All of this steeped for 30 minutes with the temp never going below 166 degrees F.

Brought to a boil then added one 4 lbs can of Alexander's Pale Malt Extract, 4 oz dark molasses and 1 oz of Norther Brewers hops. Set timer for 60 minutes.

At 45 minutes remaining I remembered to add 2 lbs of Muntons...

crazy injun not-so-pale ale, the second time

So my goal this time is to see how much of a difference a slight change in hops will make. Same quantity and schedule, slightly different kinds. Basically I took the hop schedule I usually use (Magnum, 1 oz, 60 min/Amarillo, 1 oz, 30 min/Cascade, 1oz, 15 min) and substituted with hops I could find at the lhbs, matching alpha acid numbers as best I could.
I also now have a Barley Crusher barley mill, and hope to improve my efficiency. 75% would be great, anything above that would be icing on the cake. Not a very scientific...

In my last entry I discussed purchasing my brewing equipment and mentioned that I had brewed my first beer. I should again mention that I have brewed with friends before at their places but this would be the first solo attempt and first time with my own equipment. Even with that prior experience and the books I read and research I did as we started building this website, the first time, when it's just you and what seems like 5,000 different things to remember, while worrying about any possible source of contamination, it's a lot more stressful and difficult than...

Maple Blueberry Stout

So we brewed the Patriot Stout on 9/11. svossler and I got started about 10am at his maple syrup production facility, with some help from linknlog and vossybrew along the way. We managed to get the job done, although the day was full of unexpected hiccups.

First we found that the gas line to the stove was leaking. After careful consideration we determined that keeping all of our appendages was crucial, so we carried the half-heated brewpot to the other stove on the premises (of course it's good to have two stoves for circumstances like these). The boiling...

So my last blog entry was rather optimistic and while I was and still am very much dedicated to the goal of being able to legitimately call myself a master brewer, I am unhappy to report that I let a few months of inaction seep into the overall plan. It was a great summer and I did get the chance to enjoy drinking some great beer but unfortunately none of it was made by me. However, I am happy to report that I did recently complete at least a couple of the first steps in the long journey to master...

I'm liking the idea more and more of using homegrown ingredients in my beers. Since I failed to find a good way to use linknlogs oats and had to settle for quaker's instant oatmeal in my last recipe, I thought I'd give it another shot, this time with blueberries from my buddy svossler. I think a blueberry stout sounds like a spectacular idea. We're going to brew it on 9/11 this year, so Scott suggested Patriot Stout, and we're gonna make a ton of it (15 gallons), so it better be good.

There's a few different ways I see...

Brewing with Oats 2 (Belgian Oat White)

Well I've learned some more about trying to brew with homegrown oats, so heres an update to my previous post, Brewing with Oats.

Unfortunately, it seems that there is a lot of processing I'd have to do to get the oats ready for brewing. They didn't crack in the grain mill I used, they just kind of smashed into fuzzy sticky oat fragments. I think I'd have to cook them or thoroughly dry them before cracking, then cook them again to get some gelatinization going so that I could get some sugar out in the boil / mash. Not...

So my friend Brian (Linknlog) is quite the farmer, and this year he has a whole field of oats. I'm not exactly sure what he's going to use them for, but I couldn't resist asking for a sample to try and add a little bit of homegrown Allegany County goodness to my next beer. I know it's summertime, and typically oats are used in the dark, thick beers that you chew on while sitting next to the fireplace about mid-January, but I figured why not try to add some creamy smoothness to a more easy drinking, lighter beer, like a...

Ok, so the title above is a bit misleading - I have never even brewed a single batch of beer completely by myself before - but I figured I would start with an inspiring title and hope that through some hard work, and a lot of delicious fun, the title would eventually be appropriate.

Let me begin with some background on why I want to brew my own beer.

Don't let the authorities know, but my first taste of alcohol might have come a bit before my 21st birthday. I won't act like that is probably any...
