  • Posted in thread: you know what really grinds my gears on 09-26-2014 at 02:29 PM
    Absolutely. I'll recommend that new brewers start with something like an IPA because it's so
    easy to mask your failures behind all of the hops, but if you've been brewing for a while and
    you can't mak...

    I'd guess that your most likely culprit is the krausen remaining in your carboy. Remember, you
    can't sanitize dirt - it's still dirt.However I'm not entirely clear on your process. You
    mentioned scrap...

    LOL, why, what are you worried about? CO2 isn't poisonous, you're exhaling it right now. You're
    dissolving it into your beer, but you're worried about inhaling it? Granted, if you inhale an

    Moved to the Columbus/Tryon area from Raleigh last year. Hops and Vines is a great shop but I
    do miss the selection available from American Brewmaster and Atlantic Brew Supply!

  • Posted in thread: 5.2 Stabilizer doesn't work, can we trust other 5-star products? on 05-11-2012 at 07:09 PM
    StarSan is easy to test. As noted above, it is an acid sanitizer, and its pH must be below
    3(ish?) to work effectively. I have some pH test strips which work in that range so I can
    confirm my StarSan ...

    You may also have started with an amber extract, which would have some of those darker malt
    flavors to begin with. Caramelization would increase those flavors.

    Very nice! I've been thinking about the same concoction. Eventually I hope to make my own syrup
    and use it to brew a partigyle root beer after the mash for a big stout or a wee heavy. Some
    commercial ...

    I have a batch of RIS in the bedroom closet now, and something went wrong somewhere because 2
    of the bottles have burst. Mind you, this is over a year, and I've only had 2 that went. But
    both of those...

    What's the flow rate for your 50 plate chillers? And is this wort flow rate, water flow rate,
    or both?

    My wife found her grandfather's dandelion wine recipe a few years ago while we were clearing
    out her grandmother's house. She told me about her memories of gathering dandelions for him
    when she was ve...
