Anyone made any good brews lately -? I started a wheat beer last week - it will be interesting to see how it turns out - I added 3/4 cup of honey to the batch along with the DW/BME and hops.

I also visited that new brew store in Wilmington -on Kerr Ave and bought some stuff - I hope he can keep it up and running - seemed pretty slow in there althugh it was a weekday.

I hope my newest one will be good. It is a pale ale that should come in at 7%. When I moved it to secondary I split it into two buckets, and added some fresh jalapeno to one half. I've had some pepper beers, and am just interested to see how much heat I'll be getting from two peppers in ~2.5 gallons.

Yes. I sliced the length of them, sanitized with vodka, and put in everything but the stem.

Hopefully. I'm definitely tasting during bottling.

so it definitely hits your tongue with jalapeno flavor, but it doesn't linger to the point of burning your mouth even a little. I think I got it right the first time.

My pale ale is pretty good. The jalapeno version is better.

Got a new pot. 9 gallon SS with two welded fittings for a ball valve and a thermometer. I used it for the first time this weekend to brew an Octoberfest. It made brewing so much easier. Its a gallon bigger than my old pot, and I came no where near a boil over because of it. Having the thermometer and valve built in made things very simple too. It was the easiest brew night for me ever. Lager ready in ~2 months.

Is anyone doing anymore brewing? I was in Wilmington at the Homebrew Supply this past week - loaded up on the makings for about 3 batches of beer. Both malt and hops seem expensive to me where ever you get it.

Any of you guys do grain only brewing? Is it a huge pain in the but?
