    Yeah, that's why I do 5.5 gallons. The hop tea eliminates the loss in the fermenter. Also, I
    use a DIY hop spider in my boil kettle which I can twist and allow to drain a bit.Sent from my

    I still use straight O2 with my Belgians. I've never really thought of it as being anymore
    dangerous than the 6 propane tanks I have in my garage/brewery. Just don't use if around an
    open flame. The t...

    Thanks Yooper. My hop schedule may look a little funny but it's because I'm trying out Zythos

    Yeast eats priming sugar, creates CO2. In an appropriate container (i.e. beer bottle) the CO2
    has nowhere to go and is forced into solution effectively carbonating your beer. If any of
    these component...

    I've brewed a couple batches using Sorgum LME, candi sugar and various herbs.I have a recipe
    and instruc...

    I'm planning to brew an IPA with no early hop additions. I will be adding the hops at 10, 5,
    flameout and hop tea (dry hop substitute). With the 4 different hops I'm using (totaling 1lb) I
    should have...

    I don't think the yeast "requires" 12-15 PPM to survive. It is the preferred level to produce
    expected/desired results from the various strains. Can good beer be made with less? Sure. But
    can proper o...

    If you're into hop experimentation I can whole-heartedly recommend
    www.farmhousebrewingsupply.com . They have most varieties available in 4oz packs at very
    reasonable prices. I find that 4oz is a grea...
