  • Posted in thread: Wort boiling over on 03-05-2014 at 03:20 PM
    I just use a towel to fan air over the surface during the break. Seems to work fine for me. A
    fan pointed at the boil would do the same thing (as someone else already suggested).

    I have the 40 qt AHS pot (but without the spigot, etc.)--just the basic pot. I've been happy
    with it. I'm about 40 batches in--no problems with it at all. Obviously, I can't attest to the

    you say you didn't use a starter, but how much yeast did you pitch? One vial? One dry pack? Was
    it an ale or lager? I seem to think that the more of the brewers yeast you added, the less
    likely a fore...

    I just push the tube down the wand a good 4-5 inches, and use my fingers to sort of pinch the
    tube against the wand when in use. I haven't heard any gas escaping at the tube end, but then
    again, I've ...

    Does the OP sanitize the bottles (i.e., with Star San) before using them (after using the
    Oxiclean)? If so, doesn't that solve the slime problem? Personally, I would not bottle a beer
    after just an ox...

  • Posted in thread: How sanitary/aseptic are we? on 02-18-2011 at 07:17 PM
    I brew sour beers, so contamination comes with my "brewery territory." I basically just try not
    to sneeze on the beer. ;)J/K. I actually start with Oxiclean to clean/get the chunks out, then

    Yes. Mine clouds up immediately too when I mix it. I think it has to do with the mineral
    content of the water. The pH is the most important factor, not the "look" of the solution. If
    you still have do...

  • Posted in thread: CO2 Draining Too Fast and Beer Leaking Into Keezer on 02-18-2011 at 07:00 PM
    My theory: two leaks. First could have been anywhere (and may still be anywhere), hence the
    lost CO2 without the spill. Second one: he has a leak at the "outbound" connector at the top of
    the cider ke...

    My non-elegant solution: buy a second 5 lb tank to keep in reserve. Found mine cheap (on sale)
    at kegconnection last year.

  • Posted in thread: Kegerator/Keezer Thermostat Setting? on 02-18-2011 at 06:44 PM
    I seem to think that the freezer is either on or off (i.e., the freezer's thermostat doesn't
    change the "freezing power" of the unit, it just tells the unit that a temperature has been
    reached and swi...
