    I have never bottled anything with that high a gravity before. I noticed some others finishing
    with a high FG, but not 1.032 high. If that's where it finishes then that's where it finishes,
    or is addi...

    Hey there,I have a question about my last 2 SG readings of 1.032 (readings were a week apart).
    I brewed 20 gallons of this and had a OG of 1.086. About 30 minutes into the mash the 155 temp
    dropped. T...

  • Posted in thread: Light oak chips to replace medium oak cubes on 08-20-2014 at 05:49 PM
    In my experience chips impart flavor very very quickly and can be a bit harsh. I only use cubes
    now. It seems i can age brew on the cubes longer and the oak flavor is more rounded. If you're
    going to ...

    I'm sure there are some high priced gadgets out there, but would a reptile humidity gauge work?
    I use to get them for 6 or so bucks or so. Might be worth a try. When i cold crash I usually
    take the ai...

  • Posted in thread: Hops and pool water... Help! on 07-08-2014 at 05:31 PM
    Thanks for the replies! It's not looking good but will hope for the best. If the bines do die
    back, is the rhizome toast as well?

  • Posted in thread: Hops and pool water... Help! on 07-08-2014 at 04:04 AM
    So far all I have added is chlorine as needed to stay at 2-3 ppm in a 20k gal pool, and a dose
    of algaecide a few weeks ago. The pH is is 7.5 so I haven't had to add acid. So over watering
    maybe? That...

    Hello all! I am new to owning a pool and made a big mistake! I have 2 cascade and 2 centennial
    growing from rhizomes planted in ground 2 months ago. The tallest is about 6ft. This weekend I
    was doing ...

    Happy memorial day all! I came back from a short vacation and one of my plants looks like the
    tip was dried up. All 4 plants are on drip system and the ground stays around field capacity
    and slightly ...

  • Posted in thread: Cocoa powder in the boil and using a plate chiller. Problems? on 01-23-2014 at 07:45 PM
    I have used nibs in the boil and secondary. I prefer them in the secondary. The powder sure
    does make a sludge in the kettle as well as the carboy! I bet there wouldn't be a problem
    running through th...
