    I pitched 1.5 liter starter of WLP670 at 64, allowed it to free rise to 68 until temp started
    to drop, then bumped to 70 for 4 days, then 72 until the bulk of the krausen and pellicle had
    fallen. Unpl...

    I'm down for the 2pm group too! Cannot wait!! Don't have a corny unfortunately so I'm bringing
    either a better bottle or a bucket.

    Sorry to hear you lost money on all of them but I sincerely appreciate you sharing such a great

    +1 on the woodstove idea Jacinthebox^^ I would imagine any type of overhead radiant heat should
    help a little but you'll still need some seriously warm boots, Carhart bibs, winter coat, hat
    and finger...

    Is it wrong to drink the last 1/2 a beer or so that remains in your bottling bucket directly
    from the bucket? As I gulped down the remnants of my latest beer last night I realized it would
    probably lo...

    Not quite Fairbanks here but I've brewed in subzero temps several times (-5 & -10) and with all
    of the steam I can't see the surface of the wort but it's definitely boiling in there. My
    biggest proble...

  • Posted in thread: To drink while brewing or not to drink.. That is the question on 11-03-2014 at 04:37 PM
    I always like to crack open one of my most recently finished homebrews before I turn the burner

    I absolutely love this beer and it is by the far the best extract beer I've brewed yet! I
    didn't have the opportunity to sample 2012 or 2013 but the 2014 is phenomenal. I pitched a 2l
    starter of WPL00...

    That's what I was thinking but thought I would throw it out there for other people's thoughts
    on the matter. For $20 it's hard to pass up the chance to upgrade my boil kettle:)

    Hello Everyone! I have an opportunity to purchase a SS keggle that was previously used by a
    taxidermist for boiling animal skulls. They generally boil the remains in either water or a sal
