  • Posted in thread: Upside down regulator ? on 05-02-2009 at 12:34 AM
    I have a new two corny keg kit from Midwest and a Sanyo 4912 refrigerator. As it happens, I can
    fit the two kegs, the CO2 tank, and the dual regulator in the fridge if I put the CO2 tank on
    the left a...

  • Posted in thread: refractometer vs hydrometer on 02-11-2009 at 01:44 AM
    I had bad experience with refractometer. They say it needs only one point calibration, 0 on
    destilled water, but for mine it was not sufficient (i have cheap chinese ATC refractometer), I
    was getting ...

  • Posted in thread: How much mash water when using rice hulls? on 12-17-2008 at 12:56 AM
    I just put together a recipe using Beersmith. Having experienced a stuck mash last time, I
    added a pound of rice hulls. So, I have 12.25 pounds of grain and 1 pound of rice hulls for a
    total of 13.25 ...

    I run Beersmith on SUSE 11.0 using Crossover. It runs perfectly.

    Somewhere (I'm not sure where) I read that you could get enough oxygen by shaking the carboy
    for 15 minutes before adding the yeast. Previously I've shaken the carboy, but for less time.
    Now I've done...

  • Posted in thread: Barack Obama Non Blond Strong Lager on 11-26-2008 at 01:45 AM
    I made a Barack Obama American Brown Ale. The OG was higher than the style called for, as Obama
    is a man with extra gravitas. We gave it away at the local Democratic club to people who made
    phone call...

  • Posted in thread: Safale S-33 for Scotch Ale? on 10-27-2008 at 11:00 PM
    I'm planning to brew a strong Scotch ale next weekend. Usually, I use an appropriate liquid
    yeast for my brews. However, given the high OG for this style, it would be much easier to use a
    couple packa...

  • Posted in thread: Pre-boil efficiency higher than post-boil??? on 09-18-2008 at 07:25 PM
    First thing, how accurate would you say your volume meausurements are? If you were off +/- on
    both measurements by say 1/2 quart, it's enough to move the numbers by a couple %. The other
    varience as m...

  • Posted in thread: Pre-boil efficiency higher than post-boil??? on 09-17-2008 at 11:09 PM
    I brewed an American brown ale this weekend. When I measured the SG pre-boil, I got 1.057 on
    7.25 gallons, implying an efficiency of about 67% (disappointing). After the boil, I got an SG
    reading of 1...
