Malta Goya in 7 oz brown twist-offs. I have successfully capped these and 6 months later the
last brew was fine. A big imperial like your 12% will take 12 months to season. I think the
capping will la...
Posted in thread: Is there a way to make beer with out boiling? on 03-19-2015 at 02:12 PM
You can definitely get away without boiling all of it at once, and only need to boil a gallon

I made a smoked porter of 5 gal with 2 lbs cherry wood smoked malt. The smoke was strong, not a

down there arou...

Posted in thread: Spacing coils on homemade Immersion chiller on 12-21-2014 at 10:47 AM
Example of spacing coils by wrapping with copper wire. I think I used 14 gauge, which I found
much easier to use than 12 gauge. The ports are facing inwards, a mistake because any leaks
drip into the ...
