Brewing your own beer?? - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I've been brewing casually for about a year and a half. I haven't done too much all-grain, given space constraints and laziness. I've done some partial mash, but don't feel it's worth the extra effort. I've made several beers I loved via extract. The way I see it is, buy wheat and mash it into flour, grow my own grapes, dry them into raisins, raise my own chickens to get eggs, etc... just to make cookies with raisins, or I could just buy the ingredients, combine them in a way that makes sense, and end up with a unique, enjoyable product. I've never worried about the ph of my water, and in most locations I haven't noticed it negatively affecting my beer. You can still do a lot with extract.

Right now I have a barleywine that has been bottle aging for about 10 months, an apfelwein that has been aging about 7 months, an oatmeal stout that I brewed a while ago and don't like enough to drink quickly, and a modified Surly Furious clone to which I added rye that I just bottled a few days ago. 99 ibus, 7 srm!
