Posted in thread: Getting screwed at a car dealership on 03-08-2014 at 04:07 PM
Don't blame the dealer, and don't be too hard on yourself. Almost everyone learns this lesson
the same way. Older folks love to preach about their supposed fiscal responsibility, but it's
only from th...
Posted in thread: First Batch questions - be gentle on 03-08-2014 at 03:40 PM
Oxidized beer happens quick, 24-48 hours or so I've heard. The damage (f any) is done so don't

to bet the...
Posted in thread: How long does brew day take you? on 02-24-2014 at 02:52 PM
I do biab and I'm consistently at 6 hours. That includes setup and cleanup. I usually do a 90

starting. Right n...

I built my setup with a 10 gallon pot and I regret it. It's too small for party-gyle brews, and

fermentors. Before I ...

I'm of the opinion that cold-crashing before secondary or before bottling is not entirely
necessary, but will speed things up. Lowering the temp will get the yeast to drop out quicker,
but I'm getting...

IPA's here in Southern NH. I got my water tested and it seems to fit the profile:PH 7.7Ca

Sorry for dragging up an old thread but it's really good info here. I use a blow-off tube on
every brew, and feed the probe into the starsan bucket, through the tubing, down the airlock
and into the w...

I use camlocks on the output side and barbs for the hose on the inlet side. Ball valves on the
outlet of the kettle and outlet of the pump. I had a problem losing prime during a vigorous
boil (and bur...
