Sometimes you feel like you’re doing everything right and having a great brew day, only to find out that you missed your gravity by…a lot. This should have been like 1.062. Oh well, guess this will be a “session” hazy IPA, which means I can have two of them instead of one? I’m a glass half-full sort of guy! 😅🍻🍻
The best thing about brewing in the fall (other than that brewing outside in the beautiful weather) is how much faster I can cool my wort down! Fall is definitely my favorite month to brew outside! What’s yours? 🍂🍁🍻🍻
What are your favorite hops to brew with? For late additions, I LOVE brewing with Mosaic and Citra! This smells amazing!!
Is that the Anvil Foundry?
Yep! This is the Foundry 10.5 with the recirculation kit.
Do you like it? I’ve been thinking about getting one.
I love it! I was worried I’d feel like it was “too easy” and that I wouldn’t really feel like I’m brewing, but I don’t feel like that AT ALL. It just removed a lot of the little stressors I had with my old system (especially getting water to temperature for each step). This system just got rid of all of those things I didn’t enjoy worrying about…[Read more]
Hi Arthur! We highly recommend upgrading to an electric all-in-one system. If you’re interested, here’s an overview of some of the most popular models and their features: https://brewtogether.com/2020/10/19/the-best-electric-all-in-one-brewing-systems/
I love Mosaic and Citra too. My new favorite is El Dorado.
Kegged the Roasted Rye Pale Ale! This was one of my laziest brews in a long time. I changed the recipe like three times as I brewed it, I just direct pitched the yeast, I fermented it in my old Big Mouth Bubbler instead of a conical, and now I’m not even doing a closed transfer. Oh well, it’ll still be beer! Sometimes we all need to “relax, don’t…[Read more]
I LOVE the Anvil Foundry. I’m doing my fourth brew on it this weekend and this thing is just awesome. One of my favorite things about brewing on it is the ability to easily do a recirculating mash with the pump kit. My least favorite part of brewing on my old system was vorlaufing, so the ability to recirculate and filter the wort without taking a…[Read more]
Definitely the best dollar-for-dollar system on the market right now! Here’s our guide to electric systems and a comparison of our favorites: https://brewtogether.com/2020/04/19/the-best-electric-all-in-one-brewing-systems/
I love a nice healthy krausen! Always such a good feeling to have another batch bubbling away happily! 🍻🍻
I’ve decided that I’ll only wear shirts that showcase my drinking habit from now on 😂
Awesome! We love seeing people rocking BT apparel! Here’s the link where you can get your own! https://amzn.to/3a3vcaQ
Where’s the coolest brewery you’ve ever been in the entire world? I think mine would have to be the Cerveceria Del Valle Sagrado in the Sacred Valley, Peru. Amazing beer, amazing people, and an amazing location. Their head brewer Carlos was an incredible host who is using local ingredients from the Peruvian rainforest and is malting his own grain.…[Read more]
Watermelon wine update! It fermented like a champ and is completely fermented, so I decided to rack it to a secondary while I was kegging my fall spice cider. The color isn’t terrible (kind of a pink-orange), but it smells pretty nasty. The taste is…ok. I mean, it doesn’t taste BAD, but certainly not good. Light and dry with a watermelon flavor,…[Read more]
