That’s right, we’re still cranking on FF and for December, it’s a kind of free-for all on days, but that works for me. I’ve been hit or miss with them anyway. For this FF, the question was about our favorite holiday homebrew.
For me, this brings up an interesting point because I am actually brewing a [...]
So initially, I was a little concerned that my subject for this month’s Fermentation Friday that I was being a little too open ended and it wasn’t going to give people anything to write about. But what I found in reading all of the posts is that people’s drive for brewing can be both similar [...]
Here we are at another Fermentation Friday! I am the very fortunate host of this month’s virtual get together so I will start the conversation off. The question I’ve posted to the group is:
Remember why we brew?
This is a pretty open subject, but the idea here is, what got you started? What gets you out [...]
That’s right kids, it’s that time of the month again! The next Fermentation Friday is October 30, 2009. In case you’ve never heard of FF, it’s the brainchild of Adam at Beer Bit’s and he has the whole history documented, check it out.
Since it’s my chance to choose the topic, I decided to go with [...]
Yet another Fermentation Friday is upon us. This month’s host is my old friend Ted (I can call him that because we’ve met!). The subject is:
a. What part of the your brewday brings you the most JOY?
b. What part particularly brings out a good deal of STRESS?
This is great to think about. I love to [...]
With the snow melting and hops starting to sprout, this is a good time to think about brewing beer (I know, it’s always a good time to think about brewing beer). This month’s Fermentation Friday is hosted by HomeBrewBeer.net and the question is:
“How will you grow or change as a homebrewer this Spring? How will you embrace [...]
Yup, it’s that time again, Fermentation Friday. This week’s host is A World of Brews and the topic is: Cleaning and Sanitization.
My take on this is going to be short and sweet. We all have our ways of doing things and that’s fine. One of the first things we learn as brewers is to clean and sanitize. However, after [...]
Ted mentioned that he would like to participate in more Fermentation Fridays and even host one for his New Year Resolution and I will have to join him with resolving to being more diligent with my Fermentation Friday posts. This week’s host was Lootcorp 3.0 and they provide a great wrap up for everyone. As always, [...]
About half of the hops are ready to go, so now I get to pick and dry them so that I can see how much I’m going to yield. As anyone that has been into drying herbs or anything knows that I’m going to lose 70-80% of the weight of my harvest as the [...]
The Brew Dudes are holding court on the now regular Fermentation Friday that started at Beer Bits 2. Good stuff. This weeks topic is:
“What advice would you give people that are getting into beer?”
Well for me, it’s just dive right in. The biggest mistake I made in brewing was not getting started soon enough. I [...]
