  • I started brewing extract (well, technically partial mash) in Jan 2010, I quickly moved to all-grain around August 2010 and have never looked back! I'm in the process of building my 3 keggle brew system. So much more to learn!

  • Posted in thread: 60 minutes vs shorter boils. on 11-02-2011 at 04:43 PM
    You're directions are probably correct. There is no rule that you have to add hops in at the
    start of your boil. There are brewing techniques, like the late hop Addition technique, where
    you don't add...

    I have found that the high pressure/shaking keg to carbonate is a poor and inconsistent way of
    carbonating a beer. From the sounds of it, having all foam, your beer is over carbonated. Which
    is what g...

  • Posted in thread: First All Grain and Low OG on 11-02-2011 at 02:14 PM
    So, I missed my OG by quite a bit, and the fermenter has stopped bubbling after two days. My
    fear is that the gravity was so low (1.020), that the yeast has ran out of sugar to eat. What
    would happen ...

  • Posted in thread: When to step mash? on 11-02-2011 at 02:02 PM
    I haven't done step mashing yet, so I don't want to sound like I know what I'm talking about.
    However, I just read that section in Gordon Strong's book "Brewing Better Beer" and it has to
    do with what...

  • Posted in thread: Is AG really that much cheaper then extract? on 11-02-2011 at 01:57 PM
    BIAB. Brew in a bag.If you have the equipment for extract brewing (kettle, heat source) you
    have everything you need for all-grain.You just need the bag. Maybe a thermometer.No fancy mash
    tun? Wrap yo...

  • Posted in thread: Will this Jet Burner work? on 11-01-2011 at 09:32 PM
    Thanks for the input! So say I were to buy a 6" cast iron burner... The ones that come up on
    amazon are Bayou Classic replacement burners. Would I be able to retrofit that onto a stand of
    my own? For ...

  • Posted in thread: Will this Jet Burner work? on 11-01-2011 at 12:24 AM
    I am in the process of starting to make my 3 keggle brew system, and as of now, I only have the
    propane burner that I originally had before starting this project. I'm looking into buying a
    couple more...

  • Posted in thread: Benefits of a Conical Fermenter...? on 10-25-2011 at 03:41 PM
    Thanks for the input everyone! So, if I don't dock for the conical, what other equipment would
    be a better purchase? I already have a fermentation fridge (chest freezer with thermostat) and
    multiple. ...

  • Posted in thread: Benefits of a Conical Fermenter...? on 10-25-2011 at 03:39 AM
    They were saying that due to the coned bottom, the fermentation happened in a vortex-like
    movement so it worked faster...? So with a conical, do you just release some of the trub a
    little bit every da...

  • Posted in thread: Benefits of a Conical Fermenter...? on 10-25-2011 at 01:34 AM
    Hey guys, so I just sold a couple things to invest in a conical fermenter, but I want to make
    sure it is a good move before I drop the $300 on it.I'm brewing all grain and generally do a
    primary for 3...
