Helpful calculation

by Jason Reinhardt on 10-14-2011 at 10:41 PM
From time to time we all may over boil (as in time, not over the top) our wort or maybe not collect enough wort from our runnings. It's at this point you must decided, "do I want higher alcohol but less finished product, or more finished product and less alcohol, but a more precise recipe."

I perfer to opt for the latter.

So, Sunday my english bitter fell short on volume. I want to think I collected enough wort and that maybe I was boiling more vigorously

The MONK'S competitions

by Jason Reinhardt on 10-07-2011 at 08:24 PM
So... the Monks don't compete huh? I know that's what it says on the home page, but after sifting through some forum posts, I beg to differ. It appears as though several monks will be submitting a few brews for the RMC. I am included in this accusation.

This observation led me to an idea.

Why don't the monks have inner club competitions? And why shouldn't they?

Competitions- a non-biased opinion that points out the strengths and weakness of the brew

Specialty Beers- for you the brave, I salute you

by Jason Reinhardt on 10-02-2011 at 12:26 AM
Tonight I had some wonderful beers that were outside the norm. By that I mean they were on the Dogfish Head level of brewing- Extreme! Anyone somewhat familiar with DFH knows that they do some extreme brewing.
Any one can brew a classic style, but to brew an Extreme beer, to push the envelope, you first must envision the end result in terms of what you want to mimic. And as I think of this blog entry and the beers I had tonight I also have the "King of 14ners" in mind with his

Culturing yeast

by Jason Reinhardt on 09-16-2011 at 09:39 PM
Yeast is one of several keys not just to beer, but good beer, or even arguably great beer. So critical is yeast that many strains are proprietary. That's where this comes in. Recently I purchased for my taste bud enjoyment an unfiltered, unpasteurized Belgian ale.

The goal: To culture from the bottle of said Belgian ale, enough viable yeast to ferment my own batch of beer. Set forth is the progress of my journey.

Day 1: (Sunday) Enjoy beer. But before I could it

From seed to tree

by Jason Reinhardt on 09-07-2011 at 04:51 PM
It all began in ’97 after I had expressed some interest in brewing that my wife, then girlfriend, took the notion upon herself to get me started. Working at the fine
homebrew shop known as Bed Bath & Beyond , Cindy purchased (sparing no expense for me using her employee discount), one Mr. Beer kit.
Even after “brewing” 2 of the 3 OJ size cans of suds which resulted in bottle bombs and olive tasting beer, I was undaunted! Determined to make a drinkable
beverage, I promptly purchased
