  • Posted in thread: Northern Colorado-CMC group buy round 2 on 08-27-2015 at 05:32 PM
    Has anyone tried CMC's Belgian Style Pale Malt? Thinking of trying a bag of that and making
    some belgians.I picked up a bag on the last round. You definitely get that Stella Artois sort
    of breadiness,...

    Take a look inside the fermenter. Once the krausen begins to clear, ramp away!

    My OG at pitch was 1.043 and it's been fermenting at 68F. After a week, I may ramp it up to 72F
    to finish up before I check the gravity.A little ramp in temp near the end is usually a good
    idea with a...

    Reading was 1.040. Seems odd since there is no more action. Fermenting chamber controling
    temperature to 20 degrees.Measuring FG with a hydrometer or refractometer?I've read reviews
    that this strain i...

  • Posted in thread: Co2 tank way lower today but i cant seem to find the leak on 08-27-2015 at 11:45 AM
    Based on my own observations, a filled tank will usually read around ~750 PSI if not
    refrigerated. Once refrigerated, the pressure will drop to and maintain ~500 PSI until all the
    liquid CO2 is gone, ...

  • Posted in thread: Efficiency differences...what's actually different? on 08-26-2015 at 06:37 PM
    Joe's OG is going to be quite a bit higher than Harry's, so all of those things you mentioned
    (color, protein, flavor, etc.) are going to be higher in Joe's wort.On the other hand, if the
    two brewers ...

    Welcome back!The typical default boil-off rate is 1 gal/hour. When I brew 3 gal stove top
    brews, I usually see about .85 or so. You can do a test boil and see what you lose and use that
    as a starting ...

    They'll carb up once you warm them up. Might not be a bad idea to turn them upside down a few
    times to unpack any yeast that settled out.

    Out of curiosity though, say my boil off rate is higher...how will this effect my process?Using
    more water to mash will lower my efficiency and boiling for a shorter period than an hour would
    affect m...

    Sounds like your post-boil volume is less than you think it is or your pre-boil volume is more
    than you think it is, or a combination of the two. How are you measuring volumes?
