  • Posted in thread: Question on Cooling Wort and Oxygen on 08-17-2014 at 09:47 PM
    I currently use an immersion chiller, and can get my wort down to a decent temperature (low
    80s) within 25 minutes or so. Unfortunately my ground water isn't that cold, so it is hard to
    fully get it t...

    Thanks for all of the great replies here. This past weekend I used my new round cooler with
    false bottom. I also decided to pick up some campden tablets and threw it in with my water.
    Well something w...

    So i finally went and found my town's water report that is online, but honestly I have no idea

  • Posted in thread: Terrible Efficiency yet again, please help on 07-16-2012 at 08:36 PM
    Thanks for the insight above. I had read mixed reviews on how fast to drain the mash. In the
    past I used to go really slow, but that did not seem to do much either. As for Water chemistry.
    This is som...

    So I am trying out a 1 gallon recipe that I am doing on my stove. It is all grain. I dumped the

    temp qui...

  • Posted in thread: Off Flavors and need help on 06-13-2012 at 05:49 PM
    I have done about 5 AG batches now, but they all seem to have some type of off flavor. I can't

    a little ...

    week then will keg ...
