Posted in thread: Wort chiller or fermentation cooler? on 06-16-2015 at 05:14 PM
I'm kind of in the same boat as I lost my IC due to leaving water in it over the winter (water
expansion busted the coil in 20+ places) and my chest freezer/fermentation chamber just died on
me. I was...
Posted in thread: Thermometer Woes! on 04-01-2015 at 03:39 PM
Since the OP is submerging his temp probe in the wort (which is what I do), there is a way to
water-proof the probe on a cheap probe thermometer so that the liquid won't touch the braid and
cause the ...
Posted in thread: Beer tastes fine before bottling, terrible after. on 03-20-2015 at 11:17 AM
I agree that mixing in dry sugar vigorously is probably the source of the problem and will be
easy to fix for your next brew. I do disagree with the posters saying that siphoning the beer
on top of th...
Posted in thread: Easy Stove-Top Pasteurizing - With Pics on 01-07-2015 at 02:43 PM
About a year ago I pasteurized a case of cider using a cooler and around 170 degree water. I
can't remember how long I let them rest but it was probably between 10 and 20 minutes. Anyway,
after they w...
Posted in thread: Saison: Keg or bottle age? on 12-31-2014 at 03:15 PM
I brewed a Rye Saison off a recipe on these forums and bottled 3 bombers and kegged the rest.
The bottling/kegging was done in early October. Since I was only bottling those 3 bombers, I
just used tab...
Posted in thread: How do I heat my fermentation fridge? on 10-23-2014 at 05:53 PM
I use a hair dryer set on low heat. It has a built in circuit breaker that will trip if it

I kegged my batch about a week ago and while it is still a little flat, it is super tasty and
the creamy mouthfeel is unreal. I can't wait until it is properly carbed up so I can enjoy it
with proper ...
Posted in thread: First Brew Outdoors! Advice Please on 09-10-2014 at 01:31 PM
I bought a fold up table at Lowe's. Here is my setup.Just had to chime in that this setup looks
almost exactly the same as the one I use. Sam's club fold out table with mash cooler on top.
The only th...

My original plan was to brew this at the beginning of summer but of course time got away from
me...and then my kegging supplies began coming together so I decided to wait until I had that
Posted in thread: Ferm Chamber/Kegerator in One? on 08-15-2014 at 12:48 PM
I currently ferment in a small freezer which I am going to also use as a keezer once I brew my
next batch of beer. I don't brew very often so it should work ok for me. If I start brewing
more often (w...
