Advocate of, participant in, and fanatic for the craft beer movement. Just starting to homebrew, and I am certain that this next step in my beer journey will be even better than those that preceded it.

comment Time It Takes Brett C to Ferment
Congratulations sir, you just picked up a 200 rep bounty. Thanks for your thoughtful and complete answer. I think what I take out of this is that it's going to take multiple iterations of trial and error to see how I can get what I want. I'll take your advice and see how this goes. Thanks sir!

comment What malt should I use to get a red beer?
I think it depends on how you interpret his question. If he really means he wants to make a red ale, then as far as I'm concerned that red color is tied to a particular flavor (at least for me), and that flavor would be the makings of the malty backbone of anything from say an all-malt Irish red to a heavily hopped imperial red. If he does actually mean he wants a red beer, regardless of the flavor/style, then that seems like an odd question, but my answer below will color his beer red anyway.

comment Using bacon in beer
+1 for the "Lastly, I will win." Definitely going to use that from now on.

comment Weed Aroma/Flavor?
Agreed on the Summit. I used some in a black IPA yesterday, and when I opened the pouch it smelled like citrus weed. As did my basement.

comment Massively Over-Carbonated Beer…What Do I Do?
There was a lot of CO2 in the beer even after 24 hours, so I think that CO2 coming out probably pushed out a lot of the oxygen.

comment Airlock Alternatives
Taking credit for inspiring this. Booyah. I ended up using the one airlock I had, and I'll deal with it if I decide to brew again this weekend before getting my LHBS

comment Massively Over-Carbonated Beer…What Do I Do?
I was hoping to have a little boy or girl amber ale, Dean. Got my turkey baster and my malt extract all ready to go. It's the miracle of life!

comment Massively Over-Carbonated Beer…What Do I Do?
Thanks for the advice. I was afraid someone would say I had bottle bombs on my hands. Was hoping that I could let them go and then just chill them down really far before opening. No dice I guess. That'll teach me a valuable lesson I suppose. Can doing this wait until I get home from work today?
