    I did. It did. Watery, warm flat beer to be precise.Good. When it is carbonated and chilled, it
    will gain apparent body and won't be warm a flat. I think you have this brewing thing figured
    out. :mug:

    Thanks for the info! I will be looking into those sedex caps for sure as I prefer to drink from
    the bottle rather than the glass. My lemonade was in the primary for two weeks and the
    secondary for one...

    My thought is that you should have tasted the beer when you took your sample. It should taste
    like warm flat beer.

    The white plastic buckets from Walmart are mostly 5 gallons, HDPE, food grade, and the lids
    seal without the gasket. Sometimes in the sporting goods section they have 6.5 gallon HDPE
    buckets. You migh...

    You only mash for 20-30 minutes? That's fine for steeping, but I never mash for less than 1
    hour. Sometimes longer to get good conversion, as with pilsner malts.Have you ever tried
    milling grains fine...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentation temp question on 07-09-2014 at 11:55 AM
    When the yeast are actively fermenting the beer it agitates it sufficiently that there is
    little difference in the temperature from the edge to the center. People who have used a
    thermowell and a stic...

    So are Corona mills only good for BIAB where a fine crush doesn't matter as much? Or is it
    possible to get a good crush for sparging?I was considering this route for the price, but I'm
    not BIAB.People...

    The pale ale malt will need to be mashed, so yeah, you're looking at having to do a partial
    mash.But a partial mash is so easy there isn't any need to shy away from it. The difference
    between steeping...

    The changes needed would be removing water from the mash and sparging the grain to boil volume
    after pulling the bag. I already have a three vessel system and tried BIAB because of the
    "simplicity" of...

    Subscribing and moving towards the AG method myself. Just got a keggle and planning on
    investing on a Home Depot mash tun and burner soon, but still have lots of reading and learning
    to do before I di...
