  • Posted in thread: 65% efficiency with corona mill how many more turns? on 02-09-2012 at 04:52 PM
    Give it a quarter twist and go from there. I agree though, an extra pound of grain beats a
    stuck sparge any day of the week. I get damn spot on 70% consistently and don't care about more
    or less with ...

    Welcome back! I just returned with stout as well after nine months. Bottling this week I think.

    You might look into two things. I don't like more than 10% tops crystal, more often like 5%.
    Next is you are really trying to make a big IPA with the gravity that high, almost IIPA. Try to
    start out c...

  • Posted in thread: Any wine collectors out there. What did i find? on 02-05-2012 at 03:52 PM

    Budweiser to find b...

    I corked sixty gallons in screw cap bottles and it works just fine.

  • Posted in thread: Fermentation, cold crash, age, carb? on 01-28-2012 at 09:41 PM
    Yeah, primary for a week, clarification/dry hop for a week to ten days, cold crash three days
    and you have beer. Unless it is over 1.070, that is my process for everything. That being said,
    I make sur...

    Just checked and sitting at 1.018 and beginning D-rest to finish out the ferm to around 1.016.
    Trying hard to get the temp up, been a cool time in the mornings with the garage sitting close
    to 45-52, ...

    You know, if you are going to plan on doing more than your kettle can afford, don't add water.
    Sparge off an additional amount to be boiled in a separate pot while your main amount is
    cruising along. ...

    What Forrest said is the most true in my eyes. Not rinsing or having too much no-rinse can give
    that taste. My early bottled beer had that and by letting my bottles and bottling equipment dry
    fully it...
