Wow - you are lucky it happened the way it did. Glad you were not moving it when that happened.
Did it go from cold to hot, or perhaps it had a hairline crack in it from being bumped or
something. I d...
Posted in thread: infected beer, should I throw out the fermenting bucket? on 12-04-2013 at 07:13 PM
I would get rid of it. . . . . just not worth $10-$15 to even worry about it in my opinion. I
rotate through about 6-8 bottling buckets that I use as fermenters. I keep the
lids/buckets/spigots all to...

So far, the only completely pre-designed/built E-brewing system I've run across is the High

ups - I don't ...

The ones from High Gravity were the ones I had kind of looked at a bit - and seemed to be the

Perfect - thanks for the confirmation on what I was thinking. I went with the 100% RO water and
.5 grams per gallon of CaCl. About 2 ounces of acidulated malt and pH fell right in the 5.3
range and ev...

I have been playing around with my water for brewing a Helles. Basically, I am looking at a
fairly narrow set of changes. Using RO water, some tap water(maybe), CaCl, 2-4 ounces of acid

I am a member - I recommend. The magazine and the legislative support is worth it all by itself
