  • Posted in thread: Remove coffee smell from plastics? on 08-13-2012 at 06:42 PM
    I'd just give em a good wash with some hot water and a oxyclean or bleach mix. Then let them
    air dry. Should do the trick. You can always keep your grains in turkey bags as well, those
    things work gre...

    I have access to about 20 of the coffee bins you see at grocery stores (the ones that hold the
    bulk coffee) for free. My questions are:Will the coffee smell affect the grain?If so, is there
    a way to r...

    The alcohol % is usually alcohol by volume (ABV)Try looking into some brew software like
    beersmith. You can input recipes into that am it will calculate the approximate outcome of

  • Posted in thread: Anybody use bottled water instead of boiling the additional 2 gallons when brewing? on 07-11-2012 at 06:22 PM
    I use gallons of spring water all the time. I've done plenty of batches and never had any
    infections. Works great.

  • Posted in thread: Missed my OG by 10pts on 07-01-2012 at 12:26 AM
    I'm making my first batch as well. This probably explains why I was 5 points off on mine too. I
    think next batch i will do a full boil since i have a large enough kettle.If you do this make
    sure you a...

  • Posted in thread: How to tell alcohol % after adding purée on 06-26-2012 at 05:11 AM
    Brewed an apricot ale a couple days ago and took an OG reading. I have to add a can of apricot
    purée in the next day or two, and I'm just wondering if there is a way to tell the total
    alcohol percenta...

    I don't think it should be a problem. The only worry I would have is that the airlock might get
    clogged during primary fermentation. But after four days it should be settling down.Did you
    have a probl...

  • Posted in thread: Messed up malt addition on 05-28-2012 at 07:16 AM
    I brewed today and am wondering what the outcome will be.Brewed an extract recipe that I have
    made before. It has a 3# LME addition at the begging of the boil. Bring back to a boil then add
    some hops....

  • Posted in thread: Dont know what to brew. on 05-28-2012 at 06:46 AM
    Another option is maybe try to find a friend that wants to brew also and split potential start
    up costs. My brother and I live a block away and decided we wanted to start brewing. We went
    straight for...

  • Posted in thread: Can't seem to get the carbonation right (keg) on 05-12-2012 at 05:04 PM
    I set mine at 25 psi for about 36 hours, then down to serving pressure and wait one more day.
    I've had pretty good results with that. I also have one regulator for two kegs. I have **** off
    valves for...
