    Default Any Home brewers?

    Anyone here also homebrew their own beer? Or wine, whisky, vodka, moonshine .

    Here is my last batch for the summer. Its a light ale with citrus and lime. Imagine a mix of blue moon with a bit of lime after taste. I am trying to play with that crisp refreshing flavors.



    I hope it comes out okay because this is the first time I bottled my brews. I hope the sugar that I have to add to get carbonation does not effect the taste. Most of the time I empty my brew into a keg when its done. This time I wanted to enter it into a contest.

    Let me know if there is any home brewers on here. Maybe we can share our creations.

    I've done a batch of wheat beers (1st batch, took an easy recipe) and a batch of Raspberry Wheat (which is still bottled, awaiting the perfect time). I plan on becoming much more active, and look forward to experimenting also.

    I brewed my first batch earlier this year, it was an Indian Brown Ale. Turned out really well for being my first time. I had a few that didn't bottle quite right and had a bit of a funk to them and I could have filtered everything a little better but they tasted great and I had good feedback from friends..

    Thats what I am worried about. I have never bottled my drinks before. Also this was a small amount so I hope my math is right when it came down to adding the right amount of bottling sugar.

    Any of you going to try to make a IPA?

    it's really not difficult, my problem was that i sanitized and reused a few bottles with screw off tops hoping it would work. Some were ok but others didn't create a tight enough seal...

    My best friend and I belong to a local home brewers club, we've only been to a couple meetings and just ordered stuff to start.

    I'll post in here again once we make our first beer!

    I actually have 3 one gallon IPA batches going at the moment. All three of these beers use the same grain bill. The only thing I changed was the type of hop I used with each. I calculated each batch to have the same amount of IBUs (bitterness) since I am looking only for the hop characteristics. It's the first step in designing my own great recipes and one small step towards a successful brew pub.

    I've done 4 batches (5 gallon each) so far and they all are great. My latest batch (double brown ale) just finished carbonation. If you have any questions or want to share some recipes PM me.

    So far I brewed: IPA, Red Ale, Pilsner, Brown Ale
