Posted in thread: Show us your most ghetto DIY on 05-01-2014 at 03:32 AM
As the blackened element shows, I've managed to scorch the wort once. However, that was
extenuating circumstances where I really wanted to push my limits. I tried to make a IIPA, but
had to collect mo...

Posted in thread: Do you shake or swirl your fermenter? on 03-27-2014 at 04:34 AM
I most certainly give mine a swirl probably twice a day until vigorous fermentation takes off.
After that, I only agitate it when I need to smell the awesomeness pouring out of the airlock.
I like to ...
Posted in thread: Can you guess my OG? Wheat question!? on 03-18-2014 at 03:38 AM
Though I can't help, I can certainly tell you that your experience mimics my own. Even with a
fine crush, I still effectively get zero extraction from unmalted wheat.

Thanks for the help folks!I too mill using a Corona mill, and use a fairly fine crush. I

raw wheat, th...

So like most here, I don't have issues doing extra work or steps just so I can use common or
cheap ingredients. Which means when I found a 50 lb sack of hard white spring wheat berries for

Ah, I remember the good ol' days of happily bringing in something that was passable for beer,
but only just. I still do it occasionally, but now I do it with a warning of what not to

Posted in thread: Pressure canning wort – the science behind processing times? on 11-30-2012 at 06:00 PM
Food canning times aren't necessarily scientifically predictable, but rather come from testing
specific recipe combinations and conditions until it yields the desired result every time. I

Posted in thread: AG: how long is your normal brew session (milling grain to fermenter)??? on 11-05-2012 at 11:45 PM
My biggest slowdown is the extra 45 mins-hour I need to boil in order to get down to volume.
Slow boiling 6.5 gallons in a 7 gallon pot takes a bit of extra time. Theoretically, I could
use a good bit...
