  • Posted in thread: Should I filter my homebrew why/why not? on 08-01-2014 at 10:32 PM
    I am not very handy with siphoning devices. I gave it a few tries, and the only thing I ever
    did was waste beer. In a way I am a fan of filtering, well actually straining. I add Irish Moss
    at 15, and ...

    The Picobrew is a cool idea, but very pricey. For someone with a boat load of money wanting
    bragging rights, okay, I guess.

    A BK with a false bottom will work as mash tun and sparging pot as well. Two five gallon
    buckets: one fermenter, one bottling bucket. They will stack inside each other when not in use,
    and stand/stack...

    I would think for winter use, a heating pad and a sleeping bag would be more than enough to

    Sometime in the early 1990's, I went into a home brew store to check things out, and somehow
    got a Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout to drink. I think I may have died right then, and came back
    a few minute...

    As far as I remember, 1 pound of FAJConcentrate adds 23 points per gallon of juice/water,
    etc.So 0.75 pounds per gallon of juice, and 23 x .75 equals 17.25 gravity points gained with
    5-12 oz cans, add...

    Sorry to hear about your situation, I would like to ask a couple of questions if I may, have
    you tried setting the fridge to normal "on" and then plugging it back in? Is it just nothing,
    or does it so...

    look for NSF-pw pex pipe info. there are two types it seems, one for radiant heating, and one
    for drinking water. They are both made of the same material inside and out, therein the two
    separate types...

    I have a different way of predicting the O.G. before I top up, you need to know your exact post
    boil volume. It's really easy, plug in all the information about your brew into beer software,
    and then ...
