    Nothing wrong with the fotek; BIG problem with the Fotek counterfeits. There are pics on how to
    tell if you have one.

  • Posted in thread: Choosing a Pump on 05-16-2015 at 05:03 AM
    To the original post - pumps are rated for flow and head(height of pumping, friction losses
    basically). At zero head, a pump may do 3 GPM; at 10 ft of head, it may do 0 GPM. So if you are
    going real h...

  • Posted in thread: What PID should I get? on 05-05-2015 at 01:32 AM
    I have seen a lot about the Alberin SYL 2352 but it is a lot more expensive than a lot of other
    options. I have found some PID with ssr and thermocoupler for 20$.What's the difference? I need
    one that...

  • Posted in thread: Why is my beer finishing so low??? on 05-05-2015 at 01:17 AM
    1. Never use sugar unless making Pliny the elder, and then only a little. It's a high alcohol
    bomb for making hop candy.2. Mash techniques vary. When you measure mash, check like crazy with
    a portable...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 1056 (American Ale) Temperature Questions on 05-05-2015 at 12:58 AM
    Are your temperatures ambient or directly measuring the wort? As you may know, during active
    fermentation the wort temperature may be quite a bit higher than ambient.I'm in the practice of
    wrapping a ...

    Whether the beer has a bunch of bittering hops thrown in is not a factor. What defines ANY
    American IPA is the amount of late hops thrown in!While I agree with you, there is little in
    the BJCP guideli...

    I think the CL:So4 ratio is not necessarily crap, but misunderstood. As martin has said, it's
    more of a dryness feeling when sulfate levels are increased. This goes well with the sensation
    of bitterne...

    I enjoy bitterness, but I do not like when it lingers in the back of my mouth after taking. A
    drink. The version I have shows the so4/Cl ratios. Would I want the ratio higher or lower to
    achieve that?...

    I brewed my first IPA using the water chemistry primer (pure RO water). I added the suggested
    amount of CaCl and gypsum. But my mash PH was a little low. I'm thinking of just adding the
    CaCl to the ma...

    In the brew science section are all the answers you need. Gypsum can accentuate the hop
    flavors, but may not be advised for some waters. Historically, styles developed around the
    water. Burton-on-Tren...
