Brewery Update 6-19-11
Posted Jun 19th 2011 | By:
Since the last post, I was able to get another brew session in on my Basketball Post 3-Tier setup. That brew session was a Moose Drool clone based on the "Can You Brew It" recipe. It came out well, although I ended up a little high on the OG due to a much higher than expected efficiency. No worries, though, as I'm sure it will turn out just fine. I'm planning on brewing my next ten gallon batch, a Fat Tire clone, later this week. I broke in my Corona Mill and was able to get 88% efficiency from my crush! On the down side, I washed it afterwards and noticed some rust on the components. So my task tonight is to use a wire brush to clean it up and then put a light coat of vegetable oil on them to keep them from rusting up. In the future I'm going to just leave them as is and maybe clean with some compressed air or a brush.
