    What kind of water do you brew with? I have well water (hard) and a water softener. When I used
    my softened water to brew with I got some off and sometimes soapy flavors. Thru my research I
    have since...

  • Posted in thread: How fast will firkin warm up? on 07-31-2008 at 08:10 PM
    I prefer to serve it a little cooler because it warms up in the glass pretty fast. My kegerator
    is set at 45 degrees and I've found that by the time you pour it into a room temp glass and
    hold the gla...

    I use the Fermcap-S in my boil kettle and it works great. I use about 10 drops in 7 gallons of
    wort, so I'm sure you wouldn't need more than a drop or two in your starter.

    I found that rinsing with lots of cold water is best. I think I read that on the oxiclean
    label. I have started using much less. It works just as good and is much easier to rinse.

  • Posted in thread: using turkey fryer setup to boil water on 07-08-2008 at 09:15 PM
    In my experience that is not normal. I'm not sure what burner you have, but I can bring 4
    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 06:16 PM
    I use a similar setup. The only problem is the pot is just barely big enough, but that is a
    good place to start. You can always get a bigger pot later and still use the burner.

    Bleach will pit stainless steel if left in contact too long. I'm not sure how long too long is
    so I use oxyclean then star san on mine.

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter Temp on 07-03-2008 at 02:16 PM
    That temp will be fine with that yeast. It will produce more esters, so you may want to cool it
    down to let the yeast settle and decant the liquid.
