    ABOUT ME

  • Austin, don't move here. We don't have water or space, traffic is plentiful.
  • Homebrewer of beer since 1988. Worked in the home-brew industry from 2004 - 2011, have worked professionally for micro's. My opinions are my own and in no way reflect those of my previous employers.
  • Bourbon,Iyengar Yoga,building Hi-Fi amplifiers. Making stuff.
  • I'm for hire but not actively looking. I pursue my general interests.
  • Jeff Schultz
  • My father brewed orange wine in earliest childhood memories, don't think I ever tried it. The encyclopedias in my bedroom got me into trouble, tried to make champagne. Unfortunately as a 10 year old I didn't understand there would be excessive CO2, the bottle bombs probably went off when I was at school. Started brewing because I looked way to young to buy beer. Then I discovered beer could taste GOOD. Wrote a business plan within two years, I think that was 1990, many years before it would have been legal in Texas. I have done some consulting and manufacturing of equipment and tools for the industry. We didn't have Google when I started.

    I don't store the acid indoors. Maybe if the Zinc or galvanized(?) coating had an effect it was
    that it made the hydrochloric acid fume excessively, (to release HCL vapor) sort of to a boil.

    And don't worry, it doesn't help. Have fun, learn, enjoy!

    Was this an all grain or extract brew? You can use a calculator to dtermine OG for extract as
    long as you used all the LME or DME and the volume in the fermentor is correct. not exactly
    true, probabl...

    Yes, bringing the yeast up to temperature would have been helpful but not all is lost. First,
    use your hydrometer to compare the original gravity to the current gravity. If there is no
    change stir vig...

    BBBF, I found something at a garage sale which might work for your application. A shower head

    Found a pre-rinse base on eBay. After I confirm it has 3/8" pipe outlet will be able to put
    something together or just buy the "add a faucet" option then put something on the top for
    washing kettles a...

  • Posted in thread: Can too much yeast harm a brew? on 05-21-2015 at 01:39 PM
    The original question, changing the words a little - "restarting a stuck fermentation".
    Definitely better than doing nothing. Adding more yeast, good. See above post and read a little
    on rehydrating (...

    I'm just about to attach this to the wall and seal it in place. Problem is I don't have a
    pre-rinse which is required to clean out kettles. Those faucets are heavier and much more
    expensive utilizing ...
