    There are all sorts of variables at play here - the ambient temperature around the fridge, how
    many times you open/close the fridge door, the volume of air vs. thermal mass of cold kegs in
    the fridge ...

    Thanks for all the help! I was originially planning on golden promise malt, but my LHBS doesn't
    carry it. And I think I'll stick to 4 oz of the peated malt.

    I like the look on their face when I use crazy terms like small medium or large.PatEvery now
    and then when I'm in an ornery mood I'll deliberately do that just to see if I can get in an
    argument - "no...

    That's a good point. I brewed a similar recipe last year (but lost the actual recipe so I'm
    going from memory). One thing of which I'm sure is that the peated malt was 4 oz and I wanted a
    bit more smo...

    I'm trying to get a really smoky scoth ale here, with more maltiness than hoppiness. this is
    for a 5 gallon batch. Any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated!Mash:.5 oz. Burton water

    the Tannin flavor will mellow out somewhat with time, but this batch will probably never be one
    of your best. stick to the 150-155 range next time and you'll notice the improvement. also make
    sure not...

    OK, just one thing to add about BB's. I aerate my wort by shaking the BB on the bottom corner,
    and I've never had one break. personally, I just don't see how glass is worth the risk. I know
    that risk ...

  • Posted in thread: Low attenuation, high FG ? on 05-22-2009 at 11:32 PM
    With a OG over 1.060, it becomes harder and harder for the yeast to thrive in the wort. So
    given the fact that you underpitched combined with the high OG, I'd say that 1.024 is going to
    be about as lo...

  • Posted in thread: Neverending fermentation on 04-07-2009 at 03:12 AM
    I'd leave it for a while. You're better off erring on the side of leaving it on the yeast cake
    too long than racking it too soon. It may take quite some time for the fermentation to end, and
    autolysis...

  • Posted in thread: stuck sparge = anger on 11-06-2008 at 08:16 PM
    I've not had a stuck sparge with the holed nylon hose put back in the braid, with a ton of
    holes drilled in it, for over a dozen batches..including several with 14.5 pounds of grain in a
    5 gallon cool...
