  • Posted in thread: can I store my pH electrode in StarSan? on 09-18-2015 at 11:41 PM
    Is there a down and dirty recipe to simply make a saturated KCl storage solution? Would simply
    mixing KCl into RO water to saturation provide the pH meter with the needed ions so as to not
    damage the ...

  • Posted in thread: How do I properly use a knife sharpener? on 09-14-2015 at 07:29 PM
    For $10-12 you can get a combo stone (100/300 grit) mentioned on page 1 and a piece of fine
    grained natural slate tile (~$1, +800 grit) and get a very good edge on your blades. Even if
    you factor in 2...

  • Posted in thread: Slightly moldy raspberries - please advise on 06-04-2015 at 04:13 AM
    As others have pointed out, you've already answered your own question: I don't want to ruin the
    entire batch of beer just because I was too cheap to spend another 6 bucks on
    raspberries.They're cheap,...

    Fill a PET pop bottle so you can check carbonation regularly. 3-4 days might be too long. I've
    only pasteurized once so my setup probably isn't optimized. I used a cooler to keep everything
    hot and it...

  • Posted in thread: Partial Mash/Pot Size on 03-19-2015 at 05:08 PM
    Small batch brewing is possible with any sized vessel. As to the minimum size worth it, that's
    a question only you can answer. Some people enjoy making 1 gallon batches others won't get out
    of bed for...

  • Posted in thread: Swing tops, plastic gaskit, no carbonation? on 02-22-2015 at 08:19 PM
    Many have had that experience. Swing-tops a bit finicky. Some common suggestions are:- Don't
    store them clamped shut- Wipe the bottle mouth and gasket prior to sanitizing to remove
    anything tha would ...

  • Posted in thread: Oxidation Question on 02-22-2015 at 01:02 AM
    I would treat it like you would a bottle of wine. It should be fine for a couple days but it
    will probably taste better when you first open it. Since it's onle 1/2 gallon it shouldn't be
    too hard for ...

  • Posted in thread: Sourcing honey... on 02-22-2015 at 12:40 AM
    My LHBS also stocks a few varieties of honey (though at IMO reasonable prices), as does our
    local farmers/health food market.If you are willing to post it, a state/Metro area might help
    get you some l...

  • Posted in thread: First bottle bomb on 02-19-2015 at 05:39 PM
    Assuming you just overprimed the beer is fine. You'll probably get gushers out of the bottles
    that haven't blown yet so open them in a place where the mess will be contained. Throw them in
    the fridge ...
