Posted in thread: Have a conical? I have a question on brew volumes on 08-27-2016 at 05:19 AM
I whirlpool in the kettle, let that settle, then transfer to the fermentor. I did drop trub,
then dry hopped with two ounces. Dropped that, chilled to 60 and waited overnight, then racked
clear beer. ...

Just kegged my first batch from a 7 gallon chronical. Love it so far! I normally hit 5.5 into a
better bottle fermentor and approximately 5 into the keg. Rough estimation is that I have about
4.5 on t...

This. Very easy math to do. The thing is, there's more variance in whichever formula you're
using to calculate the ABV initially (like the IBU formulas, they're all an estimate and
nothing more).Math ...

when pumping, but not the water side. Pumps are about 3 feet below the kettles. I'm also having
a low fl...
Posted in thread: Critiquing a bad brew for a newer brewer? on 09-17-2015 at 08:53 PM
I help lead a relatively new brew club. We have a member that has been brewing extract for just
over a year. Unfortunately, he seems to be struggling with some of the basics. Temp control,
Posted in thread: Carboy cleaning (after first batch) on 02-15-2015 at 03:36 AM
If it's really stuck (ie I didn't clean it right after fermentation finished up), I do an
initial rinse with hot water, then soak with oxy clean. I've tried PBW and oxy. Seems like the
oxy can leave a...

I brewed a 5 gallon batch of this for my BMC friends on an out of town weekend trip. I ran into
some mash issues, so it ended a little sweet. The BMC drinker LOVED it. Came home with about
half a gall...

So this thing is a monster beer. By far, the worst brew day that I've ever experienced. I
ground the carafa III in a coffee grinder and tossed it in at the last 15 minutes of the mash.
No real reason ...
