my softened water to brew with I got some off and sometimes soapy flavors. Thru my research I
Posted in thread: How fast will firkin warm up? on 07-31-2008 at 09:10 PM
I prefer to serve it a little cooler because it warms up in the glass pretty fast. My kegerator

I use the Fermcap-S in my boil kettle and it works great. I use about 10 drops in 7 gallons of

gallons of water to a boil in about 15 minutes with my cheap 65000 btu burner and thin pot. I
usually get abou...
Posted in thread: Making the jump soon. How does this look for starters? on 07-07-2008 at 07:16 PM
I use a similar setup. The only problem is the pot is just barely big enough, but that is a

Bleach will pit stainless steel if left in contact too long. I'm not sure how long too long is

Posted in thread: Yeast Starter Temp on 07-03-2008 at 03:16 PM
