    Humm...this is my worry with the system....seems very slow....winter in a garage would be
    tuff...IMHOI don't have a grainfather -- I have a Picobrew -- but I just looked at yesterday's
    brew log, and i...

    I've had good success with adding hops(in a bag) to the keg for my hop-stands.Yep -- me, too.
    1oz pellets in very fine mesh bag @ pause for cooling. Let stand anywhere from 20-60min. I use
    nylon fishi...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone ever use Fast Pitch canned wort for starters? on 08-17-2015 at 12:20 PM
    I've made three starters now with fast pitch. Used regular tap, sanitized yeast pack, tops of
    starters, flask, stir bar.Just sampled the first one I pitched a week ago. Didn't decant --
    just poured en...

  • Posted in thread: Why are so many people letting beer sit so long?? on 08-12-2015 at 11:59 PM
    The real question -- and this goes back to the OP -- is why in the world are you using a
    secondary? No one does that anymore -- and if you do, you're just risking infection -- and
    you're wasting effor...

    bobbytuck gotta ask.... starter for a 2.5 gallon batch?? Regardless, it'll be interesting to
    see your results. Did you taste the canned wort?No taste. Smelled like wort, though. No
    weirdness.Yeah, sta...

    @bobbytuck thanks for the writeup. Did you add water though?Either way, the cost is not so
    prohibitive that I would be completely steered away. I think I'll buy some cans and see how
    much I like he ub...

  • Posted in thread: The Absolute Best Way!!! on 08-07-2015 at 03:08 AM
    Rehydrate? Why?Just pitch. Dry yeast is fine. Just pitch it into the wort. I dry pitch Notty,
    05, 04, Abbaye, Belle Saison -- never a problem. Never.Save time, save grief. Just cut it and
    pitch.What m...

    Okay, I'm going to change the direction of this thread.I bought 8 cans. They arrived today.My
    background:Brewing for 6 years. Started Mr. Beer, then all grain w/Igloo coolers, then 10

  • Posted in thread: Chcicago / Lake Michigan Water Questions on 08-02-2015 at 06:05 PM
    After a couple years of little to no brewing, I finally got a PicoBrew and an RO (portable)
    sink unit.I was googling around to find info on RO dilutions (still in Chicago -- and my
    numbers are still p...

  • Posted in thread: Coffee on nitro on 07-30-2015 at 01:47 AM
    Can't this be done with a simple whipper and N20 cartridge?Not at the same scale as a 5 or 2.5
    gallon keg, but if you want coffee on nitro -- just cold brew and seal it up in a whipper.
    You'll get the...
