  • Posted in thread: Leave last hydrometer sample on counter on 02-11-2016 at 06:56 PM
    I leave it on there because I forgot about it. Usually it ferments. Then, gets infected, then
    gets smelly. Then I get yelled at.I'm not sure it is always a great representation of what is
    happening in...

  • Posted in thread: Using a convoluted counterflow chiller as a heat exchanger in a HERMS? on 02-08-2016 at 07:51 PM
    I've been thinking about a similar idea. Sorry, I don't have a drawing. The idea is to combine
    HERMS and RIMS equipment. Instead of an HLT with a heating element in it, just use a small 1
    gallon pot w...

    I've made beers that were pretty tasty straight out of the fermenter, so I get it. I have a
    Pliny clone on tap now that is fantastic the instant it gets close to carbed up, and you want
    to drink it AS...

    Yeah, that stuff is great. It also helps passivate the SS on your kettle to prevent rust (yes,
    SS can rust). I use it for our pots and pans too when they need a good scrubbing. You should
    get in the h...

    I have a much larger fan well away from the hood (also a giant mixing bowl), its about a foot
    from the window vent hole and horizontally aligned. There's maybe 10 feet of 6" ducting and 2
    elbows in be...

    I'm most of the way through fixing up a house, and nearly all of my contractor experiences have
    been bad. Poor work, unprofessional, unethical, you name it. I've had a drywaller smoke inside
    my house,...

  • Posted in thread: Build vs Buy on 01-19-2016 at 10:12 PM
    Here is an alternate perspective. I built my own, loosely modeled on Kal's panel (except with
    DIN). 3 stout-tanks kettles, HERMS, 2 chuggers, the whole shebang. I did all the home wiring,
    made a venti...

    That's what this was. First kit I've done in 5 years I think. Out of the keg, it is one of the
    nicest beers I've made in a long time. After the quick and dirty bottling, though, it was
    pretty bad. Did...

    I recently made a Pliny the Elder clone, and it is fantastic. I was visiting a friend out of
    town and filled up a couple bottles to share it. This was a quick and dirty bottling, no CO2
    purging or cou...
