BrewDemon Big Demon Conical Fermenter – First Impressions

The first thing you notice about the new fermenter is that it looks an awful lot like it’s little brother the Little Demon fermenter. The shape, clean lines and 3 legged stand were obviously made to mimic the smaller 3 gallon fermenter.

When it came to kegging my homebrew, I was really terrified. Drawing homemade beer from a tap in your ManCave is the ultimate cool. But boy, was it scary. This wasn’t just steeping specialty grains; if you decided you were kegging, you knew you weren’t reneging. It’s a big investment, and a real commitment. Then there’s the fact that it has a technical aspect to it

One thing I absolutely love about running this website is that I was able to have so many great people join the forum and contribute. The knowledge that everyone brings is amazing and I often find myself reading about some part of brewing that I just didn’t know before and never really thought of.

A great example of this sharing and fellowship is the Recipe Collaboration Exchange (RCE) that is run twice a year. One of our forum members, […]

This is a bigger deal then you might think since they are basically re-introducing the beloved malts that were abandoned by Mr. Beer when Australia based Coopers bought out the company. The BrewDemon Malts are produced by Maltexo in New Zealand and are for the most part the same as what was once offered by Mr. Beer. There are however a few changes that make these products unique to The Demon Brewing Company. The obvious change of […]

Ever been in a hurry to fill a 2.5 gallon keg? But not sure what to do? Well, it’s cold in this part of the world. And it won’t be long before your wanting to grab an nice amber to sip on. A while back, while at the local home brew store (LHBS), I was trying to figure out what to brew. I was doing a lot of Irish Stouts then, and if it was dark, I was into it. While looking at the options, I noticed a Munton’s 3.3 pound can of Hopped Amber Malt Extract. THAT got the […]
