    I'd hold off on buying anything until you get your build figured out. I would highly, highly
    recommend you build with two elements. I would also highly recommend you build a 50 amp panel.
    That high gr...

    So what is the recommended time to wait for the kettle to oxidize after using BKF? Someone
    mentioned 2 weeks above, is this go-to recommendation?Can the oxidation process be enhanced or
    accelerated so...

    Make sure you try passivating the kettle after using Barkeeper's Friend. The easiest way to do
    this is soaking the inside of the kettle with an acid such as StarSan. When I get new stainless

    I was looking at the instructions earlier today and saw the overshoot setting. But didn't think
    that would cause your issue because it said it does it on the initial ramp up only. So, if it
    was the ov...

    That's a good option to minimize flavor profile changes in the bottle.

    I'm going from memory here so open up the instructions and double check me. I'm going to guess
    that you may have bumped your boil mode temp to 151 and are in boil mode. I would get your
    manual and go ...

    I haven't seen any of the NEIPA's out my way to experiment with; but, I don't think that
    necessary. My experience with Conan is that I can brew a beer and have it clear out with no
    issue or I can brew...

    There are a couple of good homebrew clubs down south, always a great place to move some beer,
    especially if its good...and you might get some honest feedback to. You just have to find the
    one guy that...

    I've never had a pellicle fall on its own, might lose some when I disturb the beer though. I
    rack the beer from underneath the pellicle. I have both forced carbed and bottle carbed sours,
    you can do w...

  • Posted in thread: 2nd brew very thin on 10-15-2016 at 04:10 AM
    Sugar can thin the beer out; but, looking at those gravities you shouldn't have a thin mouth
    feel. I'm going to guess a couple of things and maybe a little of both. Cinnamon adds a lot of
    tannins whic...

I was just looking at your information and see that you are from Washington, the state. It made me laugh. I am from Idaho and feel that "Washington" is the state and the city should be designated as "DC". As an aside, I live in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint) and people always call it North Idaho. It is small, but it drives me crazy, just the same was "Washington State" does not set well with me. Anyway, I liked your small editorial. Mark
