    Good thread. It's all about where you lie on a spectrum.--At one end: purchase an awesome beer
    and enter it into a competition.--At the other end: grow and malt your own barley, collect and
    propagate ...

    I am fermenting in Better Bottles that have racking adapters.Can I put them in tubs of water
    for cooling? I wonder if it's okay to submerge the racking adapter and valve during
    fermentation... contami...

    SWMBO keeps telling me to work on my sense of humor. I was kidding. Thanks so much for the
    details. My spreadsheet has a space reserved for your formula!

    I was hoping for something more technical and mathematical. But I can work with this anecdote.
    Thanks!

    Good plan. Anyone know if the relationship between volume and temperature is linear?

  • Posted in thread: Wort Shrinkage on 11-21-2013 at 10:32 PM
    I'm doing full boils, all grain. In order for me to predict my volume and gravity at pitching,
    I need to have the correct pre-boil volume and pre-boil gravity. My problem is that everything
    I read quo...

    When figuring out the necessary runoff volume for a target batch size, I know that we have to
    account for shrinkage, due to the temperature difference between the pre-boil wort and the 68F
    mash water,...

    I opened a bottle 10 days after bottling. There was promising carbonation, so I left it. At
    this point, it's been 18 days and the carbonation is perfectly on-target. Go figure! I guess
    the yeast didn'...

    I like the idea of using tabs. But I doubt the bottles will be completely flat when I add the
    tabs. Is that a problem? Will I be making bottle bombs?

  • Posted in thread: Delayed bottling on 12-12-2010 at 01:28 PM
    I like beer better than cardboard, so I'll take that advice.If I open the bottles to add prime
    tabs... won't there be at least some carbonation in there already? Do I risk over-carbonating?
    I original...
