    Ever notice the rust spots on steel urinal separators? They're only found where there's pee
    splatter.I stand, myself. Sometimes it's even hands free. At home it's almost always while
    brushing my teeth...

  • Posted in thread: White Particles Clumping in Krausen After Blow-Off?? on 10-26-2015 at 10:44 AM
    Nope, just clumps of protein, yeast, etc. from the Krause. Nothing to worry about. Typically
    infections have softer edges instead of the defined, jagged clumps you see. And as you've
    noticed they aren...

    Just slowly drill out the orifice until you have a nice blue flame. Mine runs with the air
    plate wide open. When I do 5.5 gallons to the fermenter (boil 6.75) it takes maybe 20 minutes,
    maybe, to reac...

  • Posted in thread: Scratches in New Fermenter - AIH 8 Gallon Fermenting Bucket on 10-25-2015 at 09:25 PM
    If you're really worried about scratches, don't use plastic. That said...I ferment in buckets
    exclusively and have never had an infection. Some of my buckets are pretty scratched up, too.
    I'm more con...

    No direct fire comes to mind first. Can you be more descriptive? For the price of aluminum or
    stainless kettles I can't imagine why you'd use plastic and risk deformation at the least and
    leaching of ...

  • Posted in thread: Stainless Steel or Red Copper and Beer Taste on 04-16-2015 at 12:02 PM
    Teromous is on it- copper shrubs sulphides. However some pros use SS too. Copper is generally
    easier for people without tig welders to work with and is probably one driving force as to its
    initial use...

  • Posted in thread: Pale ale: grain to glass in 2 weeks? on 04-14-2015 at 11:53 AM
    My pale ales are about 8 days to glass, though they're hazy and tend to carb up better at the
    15 day point or so. I only do the high pressure keg shake for a minute at best when I keg,
    though. Kyle

  • Posted in thread: 4 days for oak flavor? on 04-14-2015 at 11:48 AM
    Sure, but it's likely that a lot of that flavor came from liquid already in the barrel rather
    than the oak itself. I've soaked spirits in the past and they start picking up color almost
    immediately. T...

  • Posted in thread: Grinding malt - quality? on 04-10-2015 at 12:04 AM
    I also mill everything the same, though some authors (Jamil Z.) suggest crushing black grains
    to dust for dark beers. Flaked malts don't get crushed. I have several has indeed pounds,
    probably nearing...

  • Posted in thread: PH Test puzzle on 04-08-2015 at 11:58 AM
    What kind of beer was it? Some grains lower pH drastically.I started using 5.2 stabilizer but
    didn't notice a difference in my beer and did not buy another tub of it. Are you looking to get
    into build...
