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.

do with what...

amazon are Bayou Classic replacement burners. Would I be able to retrofit that onto a stand of
my own? For ...

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

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
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

little bit every da...

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...
