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 ...

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

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: 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

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

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...
