  • Posted in thread: 5 Gallon or 6 gallon carboy??? on 02-22-2005 at 09:16 PM
    actually, most of my 5 gallon carboys are smooth sided and I have never seen a flexible glass
    container :) the extra room is probably a good enough reason for buying 6's if you are in a
    position where...

    you want spigots - 5 gallons of hot wort is not something you want to be moving around in an
    open top kettle - and 10 gallons may be nigh impossible for mere mortals

  • Posted in thread: 5 Gallon or 6 gallon carboy??? on 02-22-2005 at 12:37 AM
    I generally use a bucket for primary and a 5 gallon carboy for secondary - the only reason for
    that is I happened to acquire a bunch of 5 gallon carboys cheap when I started brewing from a
    water compa...

    in practical terms, the pectin from fruit in your boil will not lump up, but it will make a
    haze you cannot get rid of but not to worry about orange peel - no pectin there

    buying in michigan, most stores handle all the returned bottles the same way - typically they
    go into a machine that reads bar codes and prints a receipt that you take to the cashier.
    Inside the machi...

    around here, no one wants the bottles back - the deposit merely keeps them off the side of the
    road. Stores typically crush them. So don't let your conscience bother you about keeping them.

  • Posted in thread: When to typically add orange peel..?? on 02-15-2005 at 04:05 PM
    you could always put the peel in a small amount of water and add a camden tablet - then throw
    it into the secondary. Anything added to the primary gets scrubbed pretty well by the
    fermentation - you c...

    Okay, this is not beer, but there is no forum for 'other potables' except the mead and cider
    forums In case you are interested, Fred Eckhardt, the foremost authority on homebrewed sake in
    the USA, has...

    it is very difficult to get a reliably tight seal with twist-off bottles - don't waste your
    time and take a chance on flat beer!

  • Posted in thread: Do you keep the beer labels or bottle caps from the interesting brews you've tried? on 02-15-2005 at 11:24 AM
    I used to keep bottles, but they just took up way too much room - so now I have a bucket on top
    of the beer fridge that I toss a cap in. One day I might organize them according to color and
    make a mos...
