Posted in thread: Funny things you've overheard about beer on 05-16-2015 at 08:31 PM
I wonder how a wort would turn out if it was boiled at room temp by placing it under a vacuum?
Conversely, could you make your own DME by pressure cooking wort at 350F and opening the cooker
Posted in thread: Bottle filler problems. Leaky leaky. on 05-11-2015 at 12:15 PM
After 4 years of use my old bottle filler was finally drip-leaking to the point were I wanted
to get a replacement. So far my replacements have been worse than the one I threw out. They
actually do a ...

I think I get the point of this experiment. Based on my own experience, it strikes a chord with
me. I've done several high gravity ales using far less than the recommended yeast amounts when

close to the ex...
Posted in thread: So I just put my hand into fermented wort on 03-30-2015 at 02:45 AM
I made a mistake similar to this once. I decided to bottle it anyways. After 3 weeks of bottle
conditioning I opened a bottle only to have a sentient monster come out of the bottle opening
and try to ...
