All sinks are different, but you can remove the aerator from most sinks. You might have to get a wrench out. Look at Lowes or Home Depot for an adapter. Thats where I got mine. It allows me to attach a garden hose fitting to the sink. They are made for the dishwashers that aren't plumbed in. They work for garden hose attachemnts though.

Really (about your sink), that's too bad. Most sinks you can screw off the part that holds the screen (the aerorater or something like that) and this fitting they sell screws into that. My bathroom had a large rectangle spout and the water seemingly came out of the middle but when I inspected closely I could see that I could screw out the round thing and the fitting goes up in there nicely.

As far as snow, yeah, we are going to break an all time record this winter with over 55" ... and yeah, we have no where to put the #$%* either... just silly. Now on Tuesday we have another big one coming - ... when will it end? This morning or late last night a roof of a firehouse in VA collapsed due to snow load and we, MD and VA are both way over snow budget as far as sand, fuel and equipment.

Thanks for the kind thoughts, be well!

I've never seen one that couldn't (other than those waterfall types). If its got an aerator, you can hook up a wort chiller.

I need a little more help. I am using beer smith and trying to figure out the hop adjustment. As per the directions:
SG: 1.052 - 1.056
FG: 1.010 - 1.012
IBU ~ 42

At 60min add 1 oz challenger pellet hops 6.3%AA
At 15min left add Irish Moss
At 10min add 1/2 oz Kent goldings 5.4%AA

Using a SG: 1.054, 6 gallon boil, and using Tinseth formula I only get a IBU of 27.9. Whats going on, shouldn't it be more bitter with the larger volume?

Sorry forgot to add that they gave me 1 oz of the kent golding hops, when it says only to use 1/2 oz.

With only 1 ounce of 6.3% AAU hops at 60 minutes, an OG of 1.054 or so, it's simply not possible to get 42 IBUs. What was the rest of the recipe? They must have made an error.

I am not sure, its odd I thought brown ales, especially English, have a low hopping rate around 20-30 IBU.

I looked at Brew365 and they have a recipe for the clone with an IBU ~ 25. I think I am just going to cut the Midwest clone down to 25 IBU and see how that goes.

Get an immersion chiller. You won't regret it!

First AG batch in awhile (6 mos)...

Eveything great, until time to chill ... cannot find the bleeding faucet adapter (probably thrown out) so no using the immersion chiller (normally use long garden hose on outside faucet, but hose is coiled up in basement

Fermenter sitting in cold bath .. almost ready to pitch.

CFC seems the way to go ! NOT good with DIY, so can anyone recommend one ?
