  • Posted in thread: HELP! the tip of my auto siphon fell off into my 5 gallon whiskey barrel!!! on 01-19-2016 at 01:12 AM
    So after two weeks of aging my imperial vanilla porter in a used balcones whiskey barrel for
    the first time, I went to go transfer into the keg today and made a BIG mistake! It looked like
    the auto-si...

  • Posted in thread: HELP: added dextrose to whirpool, did I screw up my IPA? on 01-13-2016 at 07:13 PM
    Thanks for the fast responses! Well, the gravity wasn't affected so hopefully the hop character
    isn't either. The hops went in only a minute or so before the sugar, so I'm hoping the less
    dense wort i...

  • Posted in thread: HELP: added dextrose to whirpool, did I screw up my IPA? on 01-13-2016 at 01:31 AM
    So I was brewing my favorite double ipa today and forgot to add the dextrose at 2 minutes like
    i usually do. Instead i chilled my wort to 190 and added my whirlpool hops, and then realized i
    forgot an...

    Yeaa i agree, although i did absolutely nothing different in terms of getting the starter going
    as opposed to all my other starters and ive never had an issue. Ive been able to harvest and
    keep strain...

  • Posted in thread: Bad smell with omega yeast labs lacto starter? on 01-06-2016 at 02:24 AM
    So heres the deal... I bought the OYL lacto blend and made a starter with it. Only stirred it
    on the plate for a few seconds here and there maybe 4 times total and then at the end to put it
    into suspe...

    I mashed and ran off 7.5 gallons all together. The preboil gravity was 1.057. I then boiled for
    15 minutes with the immersion chiller in the whole time. After 15 minutes I quickly cooled to
    90*F (i ag...

    Soooo when I went to go check the pH today I was struck with horror. Not only did the pH stall
    at 3.8 after 72 hours, the wort had gone completely bad. It had mold on the top and smelled of
    diapers an...

    Thanks for your input jaydubwill, i would hate to see my beer leak through the barrel! Should I
    go ahead with adding the hot water like i read elsewhere? I dont want to take any flavor from
    the barrel...

    Sounds good, thanks for the reply! I just sprayed the outside of the barrel with a light spritz
    of starsan to keep it moist. Was this a good idea? I would rather give it a spritz every once
    in a while...

    So I've acquired a used 5 gallon Balcones whiskey barrel 3 weeks ago and plan to fill it with
    my imperial porter within the next 2 weeks. I have never done this before and was wondering how
    I should a...
