  • Posted in thread: Help! Costly mistake; can I salvage? on 08-31-2012 at 04:00 PM
    I did a BIAb of the all-grain NB/Surly Smoke kit back on July 28th. All went well even though I
    only hit 1.082 instead of 1.087 per the instructions. Primary fermentation also went well. I
    used a 6.5 ...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast pre-swollen packs of 1450 and 1056 are they still OK? on 07-30-2012 at 08:01 PM
    Same here. I had two packs of 1056 semi-swollen. I was just able to pop the inner pack on each
    package with lots of force.

    I seem to make a big mess on brew day and end up with wort everywhere. I BIAB in a Gatorade
    cooler, and pouring wort back to the brew kettle isn't always a smooth transfer. I also get a
    fair mess wit...

    I'd like to personally thank the "I don't care about cleanliness" d-bag who showed up at my
    club's Big Brew day in March at one of our local breweries. Dipping the fill tube into his
    filthy carboy end...

  • Posted in thread: I think I over carbonated my keg on 07-06-2012 at 11:24 PM
    It is a ball lock keg. I did have the liquid out connected. When I found it the tubing had come
    off the the barb connector. All other connections were anally checked before kegging. It was a
    picnic ta...

    Sound perfectly fine for a hef with some nice esters. Ferment in the mid 70s for even more!

  • Posted in thread: WLP300 hefeweizen, too clean on 07-06-2012 at 10:16 PM
    I've gotten great esters (mainly banana) from underpitching (a smack pack of 3068 into 1.056
    OG) and fermenting warm at 76.I have one fermenting right now.

    Only time will tell. Wait it out and try a bottle every other month or so.It's a longshot and I
    know you've already bottled, but you could make a second batch and mix the two.

    Got one last week at that price with the coupon. Great deal.

    Sorry, I just don't feel I can get behind this as a method of effectively sanitizing your
    fruit. Organic deposits need to be cleaned off, not just rinsed. And the surface of fruit is
    just to complex I...
