Recapping brewing industry news, homebrewing concepts and bottles of tasty beer in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.
My all-grain brew of Northern Brewer’s Phat Tyre turned out to be a tasty birthday gift to my Fat Tire-drinking father. Also, RU Kidding? Pilsner out of “The Complete Joy of Homebrewing” is lagering away. The latest brew I’ve dubbed “Frankenbrew” because it is a mishmash of some leftover ingredients. It should lean toward a Belgian Dubbel finished with Jarrylo hops and fermented with Ringwood yeast. I tried a yeast starter for the first time, and the yeast have really been going to town on that bad boy in the carboy.

P.S. A lot of people end up here because they want to re-cap an opened beer and save it for another day. If this is you, my advice to you is to man up and finish the beer.
