    Had mine over 2 years now. I even purchased a spare in case I broke on. Mine is not glass
    either and I believe it is worth it to have it available on my HLT. A ten gallon HLT (electric)
    is used off th...

    I use a 3 tier system and have my filter housing attached to the unit and I use a charcoal
    activated cartridge so I can fill my 10 gallon HLT the night before a brew session and add in

    It has been some time since I checked in on my own thread, so forgive me. I have not made any

    This is the most up to date information available regarding my local water supply. I have never
    attempted to adjust my water other than using a home filtering unit with a 5 micron charcoal
    filter cart...

    So I have been away from brewing for a bit due to a back injury and today is my first attempt
    at a 100% Cascade Pale Ale using my home grown hops. I have never attempted a single hop brew
    before let a...

  • Posted in thread: To put hops in a bag or not, that is the question on 09-23-2011 at 03:43 PM
    I have used the 5 gallon and 1 gallon strainer (paint bags) for a while now. Always with pellet
    hops and have had no issues. Today I am using my home grown Cascade, so it will be the first
    time using ...

    I also throw my cleaned cheesecloth into a pot of boiling water for a few minutes to sanitize
    it prior to using it. This helps to strip away any residual detergent that may be clinging to
    the cloth.Yo...

    I have heard many people talk of ripening the milk over night before heating and adding rennet.
    This allows the milk to acidify properly. Adding to much starter will cause your curd to be to
    firm, aga...

    I have heard of people using tin cans, soaked chips and a soldering iron inside of a box. The

    down in the ...
