  • Posted in thread: Help with Vinyl Plank flooring on 12-07-2016 at 01:58 PM
    +1^When Pergo came out with that stuff, I saw a flooring dealer do crazy things with it to
    prove it was nearly indestructable. Banging it with a hammer, scouring sand over it, even put a
    blowtorch on ...

  • Posted in thread: Ever flush your kegs with CO2 from primary? on 12-07-2016 at 01:22 PM
    This is my real pain: the nearest fill station (a Norco) charged me $23 to fill a FIVE pound
    cylinder. They tried to talk up the cost effectiveness of a 20# cylinder, but IIRC the price
    for that was s...

    Aside from the amount of work, any bugs could flow in with the reclaimed CO2. The recovery keg
    may still contain a significant amount of air (and O2). Hard to measure.If you fill a keg with
    Starsan, a...

    Ouch!Not much you can do, whether it is vinyl planks, wood, or linoleum. Deep scratches and
    gouges are impossible to repair invisibly. At least you still have planks of the same (color)
    lot, and can g...

  • Posted in thread: Water Meter on 12-07-2016 at 01:20 AM
    In science volumes are typically calculated and measured at either Standard Ambient Temperature
    and Pressure (SATP) being 25C at 100kPa, or Normal Temperature and Pressure (NPT) 20C at
    100kPa.But fo...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starters are mind boggling. Please help a dude! on 12-06-2016 at 05:59 PM
    The yeast I've just bought. I don't have a 3 gallon carboy, but I do have a stir plate. My best
    chance is to buy another Erlenmeyer flask or/and decant. What about just cold crashing and
    decant? Is it...

  • Posted in thread: racking cane in primary on 12-06-2016 at 01:06 PM
    As @JonM said, you're asking for trouble with such a setup, while you're not preventing
    oxidation. Some oxidation will undoubtedly happen later in the process, mostly during racking
    and bottling. If y...

  • Posted in thread: High OG in relation to grist coarseness on 12-05-2016 at 10:07 PM
    Thanks for the input.That said... given my situation, should I have boiled it down like I did
    and overshoot the OG or should I have boiled for the hour and had a larger batch than I
    anticipated?Here's...

  • Posted in thread: Carboy Cover - safe way to transport? on 12-05-2016 at 09:51 PM
    When the carboy remains "dressed," the bag is a form of insulation, so inside the ferm chamber
    your beer may longer retain the heat generated by fermentation.Dropping the pants allows the
    carboy to be...

  • Posted in thread: Carboy Cover - safe way to transport? on 12-05-2016 at 06:25 PM
    The Brewhaulers are pretty safe, as long as you strap them down tightly and spread out the
    vertical supports evenly, so the carboy doesn't slip out. If used or stored wet or damp, the
    stitchings will ...
