    I am considering upgrading from fermenting in kegs to a conical fermenter. I would much rather
    have a jacketed conical for space reasons but are there any disadvantages in buying a conical
    at a capaci...

    what's all this "I did a taste" what ever you taste prior to three weeks in a bottle means
    diddly squat ! Annalise the recipe that's the taste, brew accordingly , and that's what you get
    or some thing...

    It can take a week or two for the krausen (thick sludge on top of beer) to fall out of
    suspension. Sometimes longer. Just be patient and let the beer sit. :)

    What's up with the Hazmat charge? Co2 is inert and you aren't mixing gasses. I pay $7.50 for
    mine every time I fill up.

    4 weeks to fill a tank? See if your nearest welding supply company can do you a 70/25% mix of
    Nitro and Co2. It literally takes me 5 minutes from when I give them my tank outside to when I
    pay for it ...

    I don't have any in's on the malting industry. I'm fine with a LBS coordinating the buy if
    they're willing to give us Market Price vs. Retail. We can discuss the terms through a
    different channel.

    Right here in Pecan Grove off 99. If anyone does step mashing I'd love to see how it's done.

    Subscribed. Give me a deal I can't refuse and I will buy.

    If you only added an ounce or so, the impact should be minimal unless you are using some very
    bitter hops. You will get a bit more hop flavor coming through but it's not the end of the
    world and it de...

    How do you expect the cap to stay in place? I have a feeling that little plastic bugger is
    gonna fall out from the weight.
