  • I got into brewing when I got a Brooklyn home brew kit. I did a few extract and brew in a bag beers before I ran into a 10 gallon cooler! I started using the cooler, a 10 gallon aluminum turkey fryer. I most recently bought a fridge and converted it into a fermenting chamber/ kegerator. Looking forward to expanding my equipment.

    I am a fan of immersion as I can keep cold break in the kettle, and I can see how clean it
    is(low cleaning times). My concern is keeping the kettle lid on during chilling. I can always
    cut a section o...

    I am in the market for a chiller. I usually need to chill around 10 gallons of wort. I use a
    keggle as my boil kettle and brew all grain. I don't have a pump but am planning on buying one.
    I live in A...

    If you just bottled the batch it will need to be at room temperature to re-ferment in the
    bottle which allows it to carbonate.

    I agree that it's not necessary. If you want to try something i would pipe in hot air from a
    hair dryer or a high temp heat gun. Run some experiments. Good luck!!!

    I had the same issue it was due to the ball valve on my kettle. I took it apart and it had some
    crud built up in it. It's worth taking it apart if you don't already do that to take a look and
    deep cle...

    I'm using a local malt houses 2 row and wheat. I'm running into some new issues for me. One is
    that it is floor malted and under modified. So I chose to do a protein rest. I'm not sure how
    to adjust t...

    With the OG calculated (as per flars) you can figure out what your FG should be. This yeasts
    attenuation is 73-77% simply multiply the last two number of your OG (1.070 would be 70) by the
    percents ab...

    Thank you for the info. It sounds like keeping the lid on is the better bet. I ferment low
    typically 64ish but condition a few days at 70 to clean it up. Tend to get that caked on yeast
    on the bucket ...
