  • Posted in thread: BBQ control panel for natural gas setup? on 01-26-2016 at 11:30 AM
    As long as the valves on the knobs allow enough gas to flow to fuel the burners I would imagine
    that'd work. Keep in mind people often run up to 1/2" supply lines to the burner itself. I
    don't know if...

    Hitting all my numbers and being efficient makes me for feel like the guy launching jets in the
    opening to Top Gun. Kyle

    I'll cast another vote for the tea bags. They worked great for me in the past. Kyle

    Haven't heard of it, but if it'll pull grain through consistently and doesn't shred husks I
    can't see why it wouldn't work. Try it out and post some pics of the crush. Kyle

    Boil it in a saucepan with plain water and/ or use a pipe cleaner. PBW is fantastic and
    available at your local homebrew shop.I'll typically soak my airlocks/ hoses in sanitizer for
    ~15 minutes before...

  • Posted in thread: Brewstand Height Question???? on 12-29-2015 at 01:59 PM
    I planned to store my kettles and cooler-tun in the stand and was successful...before I
    installed the burners. Now everything lives on top, and the brewstand is at a good height for
    me during brewday....

  • Posted in thread: Baking / cooking with your homebrew? on 12-22-2015 at 07:53 PM
    Whenever I brew a batch and have reached pre-boil volume from the mash tun I'll let the tun
    drain into a growler or gallon pot until I finish the brewday. The wort is stored in 1qt
    Zip-Lock bags and f...

    I'm a geologist and typically work 45 hrs. per week while doing local jobs. We travel about 60%
    of the year (currently out of town on week 1 of 3) and try to work 12 hrs/ day for at least 6
    days/ week...

    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...
