Wow, powerful. I have some RIS from like seven years ago.
I bet you save a couple of bottles every year.


I also have several bottles of Barley Wine. It was essentially a clone of Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. But everytime I open one now, it's not carbed.
I save a few bottles but I drink most of them throughout the year

You think I'd of learned by now to use blow off tubes...

Should of figured this would happen using a whole packet on 3Gal :/

Wow.. Hopefully it didn't go all the way under the fridge/into the walls?

I've started putting the fermenters inside totes for this reason.. Even with a blow off tube (I've had it blow off before, what a mess)..
Give a man a beer and he'll waste an hour, teach him how to brew beer and he'll waste a lifetime.

Generally they're in my fermentation chamber (where they also explode) but I have a Marzen in there right now so these had to be left out. I have some spare totes laying around so that might be a good idea...

Since I have started putting fermcap in the boil, I haven't had anything come close to needing a blow off tube.

I love coffee in beer but its something I've never done before. Let me know how it turns out!

Very tasty! I rushed it to keg for a variety of reasons, but it still turned out great.
Recipe calls for adding semi-crushed coffee beans to the mash, and then whole beans to the primary - I was skeptical, but wow, it's got plenty of coffee kick to it. Chocolate rye also really shines through. Might even dial the coffee back a tiny bit next time, but I'll wait and see how the flavour settles over the next while.

I think I'm going to cold crash and throw them in primary, do a sort of cold brewed coffee of sorts.

I had great results last year with a coffee stout by just throwing a hand full of uncrushed beans (dry beanning) in the carboy for 2-3 days then 1 tsp. of vanilla in the keg. It was surprisingly good!

Coming from you Jamie, I'll have to try that hop combo.

Brewing a hefeweizen type tonight. Coriander, bitter orange peel and plenty of wheat.
