  • My wife got me started with the first homebrew kit for Christmas 2007. My first two brews were extracts from B3 kits (B3 Stout and American Ale). After that I starting designing my own recipies. By my 5th brew I was all grain.
    Current setup is a 10 gal. converted Igloo mashtun and propane burner with 7.5 gal Polarware brew kettle. Using a new immersion chiller which works great until about 100 deg. After that, I use an aquarium pump to push ice water through the chiller.

    New recipe in the "hopper" for this weekend. I have a surplus of Amarillo hops which I have
    been using for pale ales. I'm ready to get more aggressive so I pumped up the grain bill and
    hop schedule. M...

    I brewed a simple pale ale on 7/23 and had some a similar result. I pitched S-05 at about 70F.
    The 6.5G carboy was cleaned with StarSan and inverted for 40 min prior to running in the wort.
    Shook the ...

    Interesting. I almost think this off flavor is related to whatever is causing the yeast "foam"
    to stay on top. Has anyone else had any problems with US-05 not dropping even after 2 weeks in
    primary?I ...

    A suggestion for the bacon. If you have a Trader Joe's or other store that carries this, try
    the apple-smoked bacon premium thick-sliced stuff. There are typically cured and uncured
    varieties as well.

    rgray58 that makes sense. Besides, who can have a problem with bringing wort temps down to 80
    in 6 minutes? better than me. I have a traditional immersion chiller that gets me to 100 quick
    but beyond ...

    it might be better if the T had the water supply entering at the bottom and then split left
    and right into the two coils. Same with the discharge. I am planning to build the same and use
    5/8" OD tubi...
