brew and wine has a good selection of hops from new Zealand. it has an amazing smell
Wow I am so jealous! I am working on gettin a place ready for me to start brewing again. I have an old Stout kit Im gonna use that first then I plan to get a Brown ale kit from Cannons and Im gonna juice it up a bit.
Now is the time for brewing summer ales and a little late for spring ales right?
ok I have a question. I have 3 carboys in the basement. They have stuff in them i brewed 8 years ago and just left down there, My son is now 7 hence my brewing hiatus , Its pretty much in the hi 40's down there all the time. The air locks went dry years ago. I believe one was a pale ale and the other 2 I think were fruit wines. I am going to start brewing again and wonder should I just throw this stuff out or? I have heard wines can turn into good cider for cooking but I don't know and I don't want to get anyone sick. I know we have members with lots of experience.
What should I do? What would you do? is there a place to have it tested?
My bet is they are gone, but the best judge is your nose. If it doesn't smell rancid, give it a little taste. Is it worth saving? dig up that recipe and make yourself some fresh pale ale. It would be an interesting brew story if you could revive it.
I'd say your biggest issue is the dry airlocks. 8 years is a long time, so it probably would not be so good anyway, but take a whiff and and small taste if it does not smell rancid. Is there anything growing on it?
Thanks for responding. I took a whiff and it didn't smell bad. maybe I should bring some in for tasting at our next meeting? LOL Just kidding. Nothing growing on it, or in it.
If the wine turned to vinegar I wouldn't know if it was good by taste as I don't like vinegar.
tonight I smelled the brews. the wine smells like vinegar, and the beer was a light ale and smells like alcohol.
Is tonight's meeting at 7:30? The Google hosted site is infected with some trojan viruses and blocked by Norton so I can't get there to check. Thanks.
Meeting tonight, March 15th, at 7:30pm at Eli Trading Co. across from Eli Cannon's.
