Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
Like the BBB, the homeBBBrew board is not really a club. Just a place to talk about making beer. Several people on the BBB have participated in homebrew swaps, it is my hope this board will further encourage this practice. What do you have going now? We are particularly partial to Belgian styles, but brewing is brewing and the more interesting the better. Is there a swap you would like to see happen? Please let me know. If we can find 3 others (or more) who have something reasonably in context then lets make it happen!

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board

Hey Steve,

As I still do quiet some homebrewing I'll most certainly put my answers/solutions on this site as I will do with my own questions involving homebrewactivities! Hopefully we Babblers can make something out of it!

Cheers,

Lodewijk

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
Of course all homebrewers are welcome but few as welcome as you!! Having you in particular as a friend of the homBBBrew board is fantastic, with your background I can't wait to hear your thoughts as questions arise. Hope all is going well "back at the office", Steve

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
Great idea Steve!

As far as swap material, I've got to review my inventory...there's a Belg. Pale ale in secondary, a few bottles of a sourmash Saison (the one I blended to make the Belg. sourmash Imperial Stout from the darkside swap), and odd bottles of some other things.

Several hoppy American styles, and a few porters (Baltic, Robust-Amer.style, Brown), a Brit mild. Some Berliner Weisse left; probably some more...

Great idea Steve.

My home brewery is currently out of comission due to remodelling. But, I'll be back at it batter than ever by July.

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
Not a homebrewer, but all the same, "good luck". I sometimes wish I could experience some of your experiments, certainly all those lambic-y ones...

The lettering is a bit small though (I know, I can adjust that on my screen)...

Cheers, Joris

Thanks for the send off Joris! Sorry about the font. I was playing around with font sizing this morning, didn't realize this page was effected. All better!

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
If you'll allow me...

(because of the positive reaction concerning the lettering font).

Seen the new scape of this forum, there's something that could improve infinitely the easiness of use of this forum.

On top of this topic overview, one can insert a caption "jump to new posts" (as the colouring on the normal BB message board). It enables to go directly to what has came on new on the forum since one last visited. Today it is not really necessary yet, but it might, once a posting has 10, 20 or more answers.

An example on:

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
Well, without either requiring registration or setting a cookie or doing something else to identify people I don't have a way to display what is updated relative to you. The page would have to know exactly who you are to know when you were here last and thus what has since changed. So the best I can do is to indicate that in a more general sense, put up a marker to indicate a thing is < 24 hours old. I could see that being a good thing on this page, so there you have it - the LaChouffe guy! It is not conceivable that down the road registration and sign in might happen here and thus the many benefits of that would follow. But I think BBB users are kind of used to our open door, no need to sign up or sign in, policy.

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
This is way cool I lurk occasionally on the BBB, but lots of talk of HB Belgian beers, especially sour ales is awesome. Thanks and toasts to the hosts.

Re: Welcome to the homeBBBrew board
Very interested in what you are brewing Sebastian. Impressive line up!

My first Saison has 2 # of Buckwheat, 18 # Belgian Pils, 2 # Flaked Wheat, 1 # Belgian Munich, 1 # Honey Acid Malt, and 1 # Cara Pils.

My next Saison (to be brewed in July) will have 2 pounds of spelt grain and 1 pound of flaked spelt.

What hops did you use in your Oud Bruin Recipe? What was your grain bill?

I brewed an Oud Bruin Today: 6 # Belgian Munich, 3 # Belgian Pils, 1 # Belgian Aromatic, .5 # Cara-Vienna, 2 Oz de-bittered Roast, 1 Oz Special B, 2 Oz Hallertaur (2.9%) @ 60 and 1 Oz Hallertaur (2.9%) @ 30. Used Roeselare yeast 3763.

For an 11 gallon batch I used 2.6oz of 3 year old Tettnanger whole leaf hops & 1 oz of N. Brewer. I like the sour character of the beer to dominate the sweet malt, not hop bitterness (estimated IBU 10).

In the end I decided to go with an all barley grist; 46.83% Pils malt, 37.78% Munich Malt, 4.44% biscuit malt, 10.56% CaraMunich Malt, and 0.28% Roasted barley. O.G. 1.059
