  • Posted in thread: Mash temps. on 04-28-2014 at 07:41 AM
    Mash temp doesn't affect og, OG comes from how much grains, their potential, and your system's
    efficiency. Mashing at a higher temp should give you a higher fg as stated above because of
    extracting mo...

  • Posted in thread: why won't my beer flow from the keg on 03-19-2014 at 09:58 AM
    hmmm...thanks for the ideas but everything looks good. I did take apart and reassemble the qd
    (with spring) so the only thing I can think is that piece isn't working now, though why it
    won't work I ha...

    I need a fresh set of eyes so to speak to help me figure out what's going on here. I had a keg
    of IPA and thought it wasn't flowing because of a clogged dip tube. After checking that and
    ruling it out...

    I think the issue with your OG is measuring at too high a temperature. Just because you can
    correct for measurements at 160 degrees doesn't mean they're accurate. Try to take a small
    sample and cool i...

  • Posted in thread: Can I ferment in a bottling bucket? on 01-25-2014 at 03:59 PM
    I have three identical buckets with spigots that I use as fermenters or bottling buckets, I
    like to transfer to a 'bottling' bucket to get off the trub when bottling and get a good mix
    with the primin...

    I bought an 'electric water bath canner' from weck for about 150$ and use that as my boil
    kettle for 5 gallon in my little apartment. If you want to invest some money and do 5 gallon
    batches that coul...

  • Posted in thread: what is everyone using as a heating source on 12-13-2013 at 01:29 PM
    another light bulb in a paint can here. I don't even use temp control, I just leave it on and
    change the bulb to different wattages depending how cold it is.

  • Posted in thread: Too much dry hopping? on 12-10-2013 at 01:36 PM
    Im on board with that you may have had hop pieces in your sample which if you go nibble on a
    pellet you'll find it'll tear your face off. I'd definetly cold crash as m3 suggests to get all
    those hops ...

    Wouldn't it become IPA-Ish with both an addition at 20 and dry hopping?meh, maybe :Ddepends on
    your taste really. I just checked my actual notes and I used an oz at 10, [email protected] and 1 @0 then

    Hopping looks fine, Im assuming you're doing a 1 gallon batch? I'm drinking an amber right now
    that I find delicious, If I recall did a fwh with centennial, then I had 2.5 oz cent./cascade
    (for 6 gall...
