    So, the krausen having fallen so early doesn't mean anything bad?I read something about head
    retention being related to protein in the beer. If the Krausen is like this, could it mean I
    have a problem...

    I'm brewing a Belgian Tripel, which came out very heavy and I ended up with a higher volume. I
    pitched probably about 300 billion yeast cells, into well aerated wort and it started rolling
    within 8 ho...

  • Posted in thread: 7/8" Kettle Plug on 03-04-2013 at 05:55 PM
    I have attached a screenshot of the hole in my kettle. You're right, it does seem pretty weird
    that a 1/2" plug would fit a 7/8" hole, but if you are sure, I'll take your word for it and
    give it a try...

    Hello.I have a really nice 15 gallon kettle I got from Homebrewstuff that came with a
    thermometer pre-drilled and in a 7/8" hole. The hole is a little bit high for smaller
    batches.They have a 1/2" ket...

    Today I need to put cacao nibs into my secondary. I got to wondering, should I sanitize them?
    That question gave me an excuse to go buy a 5th of Jack. So, my nibs have been soaking in about
    3 or 4 oun...

    Is this the right thing?

  • Posted in thread: How do you hop? on 02-22-2013 at 08:19 PM
    Okay. Are they a use once and dispose type thing or are they washable and reusable?

    @duboman: What did you put the hops into in your photo of your hops rig above? It looks like
    just a cheese cloth. Is there a certain kind that's narrow and long that would fit just right?

  • Posted in thread: How do you hop? on 02-22-2013 at 05:55 PM
    :rockin:Hops utilization is one of the things I've been focused on improving in my brew
    process. I used to use those little "hops balls", that said they could hold an ounce of hops.
    Yeah, they can hol...

    Hello, I'm brewing this crazy brew from MWS called "Chocolate Covered Beavr Nutz". It sounds
    really awesome and I'm very excited about it.I discovered the hard way that I need to do
    something about th...
