    I have been building my water the night before. I just watched the latest Chop & Brew and
    Dawson Butonized his water in his mash tun. Is this advised or am I better off continuing doing

    I only have two kegs and I want to age this for another 3-4 months and that would mean only one
    beer on tap until the RIS is done. There is a layer of CO2 on the secondary, but wont some O2
    get splash...

    I racked to secondary 4 months ago and I want to add some oak cubes. I am concerned with
    oxygenation. I can not think of a way to add the cubes with out some splashing. Any thoughts? I
    am trying to av...

    I started fermentation at 64 and have been upping it a degree a day until day 6. It is now at
    70.

    Made a starter two days before pitching. Pitched into a 1.070 dubbel wort. It was the most
    krausenist ferment I have ever had. It did blow the top of my Ale Pale off during the second
    night. The top w...

  • Posted in thread: When to add Biofine Clear to Secondary on 12-22-2012 at 03:54 PM
    I would think that most of the yeast and proteins will settle out in 6 months. What temperature
    will you be storing your beer? If I were to add Biofine, it would be after the 6 months. Let
    the natural...

  • Posted in thread: Is late May too late to cut bines all the way back and start fresh? on 05-25-2012 at 05:19 PM
    I have been meaning to build my hop trellis for 3 years now and I am just getting to it today.
    Some of the bines are 3+ feet. Is it is too late (May 25) to cut them back and get good growth?
    Can I tra...

  • Posted in thread: Brewers Hardware RIMS Tube Adapter ordering question. on 04-05-2012 at 10:13 PM
    Thanks for the quick responses and the pic. I love the hose clamp! Is the PVC cover attached in
    any way? Will it keep water out? Did you just drill a hole in the end to allow the wire
    through?

  • Posted in thread: Brewers Hardware RIMS Tube Adapter ordering question. on 04-05-2012 at 09:32 PM
    I am looking to invest in a tri-clover RIMS tube from Brewers Hardware. The first ordering
    choice is between a 1.5" Tri Clover X 1" NPS Fitting and a 1.5" Tri Clover X 1" NPS Element
    Adapter. The fitt...

    Thanks for all the replies! I have not seen him without a craft beer in his hand in a couple of
    years. He may have a Labatt Blue at the bar if there is nothing else, but he is going through a
    IPA phas...
