The Mans Cave App

The Mans Cave

The Mans Cave was a concept originated long before my time. The men in my family have always had their place of solitude where men could be men and there was no questioning. I now live the city life which means the man cave has been greatly reduced in size. That brought me to create an internet based man cave where all men can join in. Whether geek, gamer, jock, fitness, brewer, BBQ-er, or just looking for a place to read about manly news, you will find a home in the Man Cave

Grain to Glass Brewing Video Coming Soon!


On May 28th we will be posting a complete Grain to Glass brewing video that will take you from mashing your grain up to drinking it out of the glass!  This should be an exciting video to watch as we have yet to find a video that combines all of these steps in one video at NO cost to you.  We will be brewing a smoked vanilla porter on that day so if you would like to brew along with us, we're giving you until then to get your equipment and supplies all lined up.  If you refer back to our previous posts, you will see all the equipment you will need to set up your brew in a bag equipment.  If you have any questions feel free to post them below and we will make sure to answer them.  We will be brewing a 4 gallon batch of this beer, and the ingredients needed are listed below:

10 pounds American Two-Row malt               ($13.50)
8 oz Crystal 60L malt                                      ($1.30)
8 oz Chocolate malt                                         ($1.35)
3 oz Peat Smoked malt                                    ($1.25)
.75 ounces Centennial Hops                            ($1.99)
1 ounce Fuggles Hops                                     ($1.99)
1 package Safale US-05 dry yeast (11.5 g)     ($3.49)  
3 Whole Vanilla Beans                                    ($6 for 7 beans on Amazon with free shipping)   
These prices are for Austin Homebrew

Total Cost--- $30.87

This batch will make 42 total beers for a grand total of $0.74/beer!!!
As a comparison, this beer is similar to Stone Smoked Porter which sells for $4-$5 for a 22 ounce bottle.  By brewing this beer yourself you will save over $60!!
If you don't want the vanilla beans, you can just take them out and save even more money.

We hope that you will join us on May 28th for our Grain to Glass special right here on themanscave.org!
Cheers and Happy Brewing!
