  • Started brewing when a friend's dad, who was a winemaker, helped me brew my first batch in 1990. It was a Mount Mellick American Light prehopped can, and it wasn't bad. I made few more as the years went by, but not often enough to get good at it.rnrnrnI've slacked off lately due to remodeling of our house, and other commitments that I can't seriously put off any more. Hopefully I'll be stocking my fridge again real soon.

  • Posted in thread: How do you calculate the evaporation rate? on 05-02-2016 at 03:07 PM
    I think of boil-off as more of a constant, like 1 gallon per hour. The actual amount will vary
    depending on how hard you boil and the surface area of your kettle, plus maybe the
    temp/humidity at the t...

    I don't think the LHBS gets more margin on extract supplies. It just simply costs more to make
    it than malted grain. That cost is passed down through the sales chain.

    I try and do no more than 5. Last time I did maybe 7 or more. I am not sure. It's still young
    beer, but I think that there was a hint of grassy flavor in there. I'd probably try to stick
    with 3-5 days...

    Personally I think that the boil concentrates some wort, but extracts go a LOT further from
    mashed wort than simply mashed wort. DME is compeltely dried. I'm not a scientist, but I have a
    hard time be...

  • Posted in thread: Counterflow vs plate Chiller - recommendations? on 04-28-2016 at 02:35 PM
    I would recommend checking out a dual-stage immersion chiller (Liek Jaded brewings offerings).
    They don't have clogging issues like a CFC, and you can clean them easily and can see how clean
    they are....

    Picked up my new, used smoker yesterday. It was a Brinkmann electric Gourmet. Like my old one,

    put in it...

    Downloaded a couple of Black Sails episodes. Wife says she is not looking to get into another
    program, but I think she will change her mind once we are caught up on Vikings... :D

What year is this? It's the Viking age. That explains the Laser Raptors! F***! I went back in time too far! - Kung Fury

I'm trying to sell some used equipment. I see that the advertisement was deleted because you thought it was spam. What did I do to make you think that? Was it the Craigslist reference?

Please let me know what I should do to meet the standards of your group.
