    Well I'm not aware of anything *broken*, but the interface just looks and behaves like
    crap...All the icons and labels are fuzzy, most windows either have way too much whitespace or
    things are cut off...

    What's wrong with beersmith? Not saying it's perfect, but is anything "not working"? I find the
    timers quite useful, especially with multiple batches brewing side-by-side. I also like how you
    can chan...

  • Posted in thread: Keg leaks, stops after pressurized? on 06-09-2015 at 07:51 AM
    Pretty much standard. Head pressure is required to keep the - well, head, properly seated.
    Remember that for most homebrewers we're talking cornies or pinlocks. These are soda kegs that
    were designed ...

  • Posted in thread: How important is it to filter from kettle to fermentation? on 06-05-2015 at 05:30 AM
    Vorlauf! If you do a decent job of vorlaufing BEFORE you collect wort for your boil you can
    greatly cut down on the amount of trub that ends up in your fermenter. Either way it won't hurt
    anything, bu...

    Looks like high krausen. Totally fine. Yeast is pretty slimey. . .Patience. . ..

  • Posted in thread: To Squeeze, or not to Squeeze ... or what to do with dry hops! on 05-16-2015 at 01:54 AM
    Not sure how much hop goodness is left - but darned sure I don't want to sacrifice a beer! The
    only problem I see with squeezing is you're more likely to end up with hop debris in your beer.
    Then you'...

  • Posted in thread: Chest "refrigerator" keezers on 05-16-2015 at 01:49 AM
    Presumably the OP is looking at an Igloo chest freezer, the specs of which claim enough
    thermostat range to not freeze beer.I don't recall anyone posting real-life performance reviews
    of that type of ...

  • Posted in thread: Chest "refrigerator" keezers on 05-15-2015 at 05:38 PM
    I should clarify: my intent is to use this unit as a kegerator - not a fermentation chamber. I
    have a separate setup for lagering, ferm control, etc. I'm basically looking a unit that can
    cool to serv...

  • Posted in thread: Simple question.. What temp do commerical breweries whirlpool at for hop steeping? on 05-15-2015 at 04:26 PM
    So, I was at a brewery in SD a few years back talking with the headbrewer. As it turned out,
    for their 30bbl system it takes several hours to pump the beer through the heat exchanger and
    into the ferm...

    Hi, all, Getting ready to design and build a bar for a newly minted sun-room brewery (pictures
    shortly). My question is about pros/cons of chest "freezers" vs. chest "refrigerators". It
    seems that som...
