Had the chance to visit a few places in Düsseldorf the other day - travelling with friends from the Braustelle in Cologne and hitting no less than 7 brewereies and/or brewpubs.
A short train ride up, and then we went to work at Alter Bahnhof, or "Gulasch", a recent addition on the other side of hte Rhein:…Continue

Hey Guys -
Someone nominated my little beer soaked blog on Bucks Happening's 2012 Happening List which means that apparently someone out there actually reads it! If you have a second and want to see me win, voting is open until February 29th! You can either vote for me in the Blogger or Twitter categories...or both if you feel real adventurous. We wouldn't want a non-beer-blog to win this would we?
The Hulmeville is also nominated in the Beer Bar category so you should…Continue

After being delayed by Ms. Irene for a couple of days, I finally made it back to Germany on Tuesday morning. The week itself was pretty uneventful, but with the return of sommerwetter - summer weather - I decided to go for a little 4 hour drive to an old favorite - Bamberg in Franconia!…
Hello Fellow Brewers:
I’m writing to let you all know about the bi-annual Draught Horse homebrew contest. This year we have partnered up again with our friends from Philly Beer Scene magazine and Coronado Brewery. The event will take place on June 7th at 7PM. Last time we had 14 brewers and over 200 people attending the event. We would like to see this event grow this year and I’m sure that all of you can help us get there!
Please send me an email…Continue

I have an existing recipe for a Pale Ale that I made back in August that I liked very much and would like to try it again except I want to add some more fermentables to bring the OG up a little.
1 lb US carmel malt
1 lb US victory malt
6.6 lbs LME
1 oz cent
2 oz cascade
OG = 1.046
FG = 1.016
So what I'm thinking to either add/increase something to bring the OG up to say 1.054-1.058. If I were to take a…Continue
Last Sunday afternoon I did up a Brewers Best oatmeal stout kit. The biggest problem on brew day was that i was supposed to steep the specialty grains for 45 mins at 160 degrees. I did that for about 25 mins before the temp had started to drop off so I turned the heat up just slightly on the stove to bring the temp back up, got pulled away from the kitchen, and the temp ended up going much too high, like above 180. So I killed the heat, topped the level off to 2.5 gallons and started boil…Continue
Happy Holidays to one and all! I have never had an Anchor Steam brew before and was lucky to be at a Christmas Eve party this year and they had a keg of it. Well I love this beer and of course now I want to take a poke at brewing it. However from what I'm reading it is made with a lager yeast which ferments at 58 degrees and I don't have refrigeration to accommodate my carboy (not yet anyways :).

Earlier this month, I got to take part in a bulk grain buy on Homebrew Talk. I picked up two 55lb sacks of 2-row base malt. Now that I got these grains, I was trying to figure out how to store them. I think I would be ok just leaving them in the bags until used, but I think the bags are vulnerable. I am keeping them down in my basement. My basement is not finished and could get wet if we had wicked rainstorms.…Continue

Just a reminder to all you ALEiens, tickets for the craft brew fest go on Sale Dec. 6. The event is march 5, 2011.
Maybe we can organize to go as a group or something?
Also, the past few years I've volunteered to do setup on friday. That means taking a day off of work, but if you have the time to take it's worth it. It's usually it's not too labor intensive, hanging…Continue
