    Centennial for American styles, Hallertau for European.

    This one from Thermoworks is accurate and fast. About $25 shipped.

    I tend to throw in some "comic relief" from time to time and I try to confine those shenanigans
    to the non-tech threads. But no doubt, I've flung some crap into a tech thread a time or two.
    Something ...

    It may not be doomed. There may be enough yeast still in your beer to clean things up. What
    temp is it now? Maybe bump up a few degrees to get the yeast active again. Take gravity
    readings until you h...

    It didn't say. That's what concerns me.I found this PDF for Primo water. It shows 12ppm
    chloride, 7.6ppm sulfate, with 33ppm total dissolved solids. It states pH as 5.2 - 7.41, which
    is not very helpf...

  • Posted in thread: Using Megapot as BIAB on 06-01-2015 at 05:59 PM
    There are people who successfully brew 5 gallon BIAB batches in 8 gallon kettles, so it CAN be
    done. That said, it's a tight fit. Go to one of the online calculators and see how much volume
    you need. ...

    I'm a penturner too. I vote for whole grains too, as it would look more interesting than a
    bunch of broken grains. I have seen pen blanks made from whole coffee beans. Whole grains might
    give a simila...

    Why would Haier say 15 or greater A if 10 are actually going to be sufficient?It may be the
    mfr. stating the minimum circuit ampacity, to accommodate the inrush current spike at
    compressor startup. Th...

    In the US, we tend to deplore soccer for being a boring game where nobody ever scores. I think
    the international community probably invented soccer because too many fans couldn't count high
    enough to ...

    Must be a huge (or terribly inefficient) freezer. Most consumer models draw only a few amps
    when the compressor is running.However, there is a surge of "inrush" current when the
    compressor starts up. ...

If I ever go missing, put my picture on beer and wine bottles instead of milk cartons. My friends and family will find me within hours.
