    ^ Trying to use an NPT nipple as a bulkhead fitting will most certainly cause leaks. That's
    gonna leak like crazy (now or later) if you don't weld that.

  • Posted in thread: Berliner weisse souring and ferm advice on 04-18-2016 at 09:57 PM
    Main thing is to be careful to avoid any contamination during the souring. Simply opening the
    lid and taking a little sample can introduce some wild yeast -- and unfortunately since you're
    souring ver...

  • Posted in thread: Vienna Malt on 04-18-2016 at 09:51 PM
    3%-5% Vienna will do next to nothing at that level. It's a base malt, so it makes a great beer
    at 100% as many will testify. So it's not so drastically different from just a 2-row
    pilsner/ale malt tha...

  • Posted in thread: Any tricks to getting Wyeast 5335 to sour further? on 03-21-2016 at 05:42 PM
    Yeah, I think I already said this on the previous page, but hops were mainly implemented into
    beers because they significantly inhibited certain bacteria, primarily Lactobacillus... which
    is EXACTLY w...

  • Posted in thread: Smoked hops on 03-01-2016 at 04:41 AM
    There's nothing to be gained by smoking hops versus smoking grains. It's not like you're going
    to create some new flavor -- you're just going to get hops and smoke if you're lucky. Then
    there's the is...

  • Posted in thread: What's the best way to attached the temperature controller's therometer on fermenter? on 09-30-2015 at 01:26 PM
    If your using a STC1000 taped to the side is fine, if your using a PID based BrewPi or
    something you should use a thermowell.Because there is no prediction from the STC1000 your
    going to probably have...

    Leave it as is. 5.0 isn't so bad -- I've done worse and made great beer.

  • Posted in thread: What is an authentic Berlinerweisse? on 09-28-2015 at 06:09 PM
    There are very valid reasons for seeking a clean sour fermentation:1) Generally, "clean" means
    mono-culture, which means predictable. "Rustic" and "funky" equate to higher risks of
    off-flavors since w...

  • Posted in thread: Mash PH question on 09-28-2015 at 05:53 PM
    Yes, it's quite common to make a 1-lb mini-mash, especially for folks new to pH adjustments or
    when using malts that you're not familiar with. I do it only when really needed since it does
    add time.

  • Posted in thread: Is a growler filled from kegerator fine for same day drinking? on 09-24-2015 at 02:22 PM
    BTW, there are far far better solutions to this problem than growlers, which are virtually
    useless IMHO for any purpose since they don't hold pressure well. 1) Altenmunster 2L swing top
    bottles. $17 a...
