Using Beer Burp to Help Judge a Beer?

This just goes to show that learning never stops. I can state with conviction that I have never heard or read about this method in decent circles. But I am choosing to tackle this odd sensory evaluation technique because I have noted myself doing this and even discussing with close friends, usually after too many

Aging Your Homebrew Beer

Hey Bob, before I attempt to answer this question I just want to let you in on a secret. If I could really answer this question, I would be retired on an island somewhere with few people but great access to brewing supplies. And not to spoil the ending; I don’t have a clue! But

Brewing Beer With Fresh-Picked Hops

MEMBERS ONLY

Thanks for the fun question! This topic is a great reminder that beer has been brewed way longer than our scientific understanding of raw materials, brewing, and beer. It wasn’t long ago that landrace hops, or hop types indigenous to an area, were the norm. In these days, brewers knew very little about the brewing

Keys To Brewing A Great Weizen

I also love hefeweizens and enjoy brewing and drinking weizen beers! Weizen is definitely a yeast-driven style, where fermentation products really define the flavor profile.

Kräusening For Homebrewers

MEMBERS ONLY

Kräusening is a lagering method with two main uses. And both are based on the same basic technique of adding some beer in the “high kräusen” stage of fermentation to beer that has undergone primary fermentation. The attenuation level of the beer being kräusened is what divides the two uses. Let’s start with beer that

Question About Cleaning Copper

MEMBERS ONLY

Many brewers and cooks love copperware for its heat transfer properties and attractive appearance. One of the downsides, however, to copper is that pretty, honey-like color turns brown over time and requires polishing to restore the shine. And sometimes, the brownish tint turns green. The good news is that brown and greenish-brown copper surfaces are

Priming A Keg With Sugar
