    Same for me. Stir in the sparge, vorlauf, then (once it runs clear) into the boil kettle it

  • Posted in thread: Multiple Buckets Question on 09-19-2016 at 10:50 PM
    Go to a local bakery or the bakery dept at your Food City, Publix, etc and ask for some of
    their empty cake icing buckets. They usually have 2 gallons, but I was able to get a three
    gallon I also used...

  • Posted in thread: Backflushing a Chugger pump? on 09-11-2016 at 03:10 PM
    Sorry for the dumb question, but...Can I back flush a Chugger pump to rinse out PBW? What I
    normally do is let it recirculate hot (around 150F) PBW wash using my tun as the holding vessel
    as I'm doing...

    How did you insulate the new lid then? I was wondering in the silver barrier was worth it. Its
    just hard when there is so much stuff out there.I would just use the pink foam board you see at
    Home Depo...

    I've used Oxy clean alone, but it leaves a film. PBW for me. Even though mine is the homemade
    version, I've not had any film residue as I did with just the Oxy by itself.For the temp, I
    wouldn't go an...

  • Posted in thread: My hydrometer died of old age. on 09-08-2016 at 10:53 PM
    Earlier today I got an email from NB about a new hydrometer they're selling. (link).I still
    have my original that came with my brew kit and one I bought about 6 months ago as a spare.

  • Posted in thread: Hanging mesh filter for noiling kettle on 09-08-2016 at 10:11 PM
    I would have to agree with getting the 6x14 instead of the smaller 4x10. This is especially if
    you're doing full volume 5 gallon boils in a 10 gallon kettle. I have both sizes. The small one
    is from A...

  • Posted in thread: Concord pots - flat lid vs domed? on 09-08-2016 at 09:56 PM
    Mine is a 60qt version of the first link. I can hang a lid on it, but usually don't. I have two
    of them, but most of the time I'm doing 5 gallon batches, so I just use my 10 gallon Bayous and
    use the ...

    I have that same exact filter and also one of these. (link...6x18)I liked the bigger spider for
    my boil kettle. Seems to do a good job. The one you linked I bought thinking it would be good
    enough for...

    Good call. My buddy who I gave this beer to, he has one more so he's going to open it tonight
    and see if it's dark too. Hopefully the other bottle was just an anomaly.Here's an IPA I done
    last Thanksg...
