  • Posted in thread: Getting screwed at a car dealership on 03-08-2014 at 05:07 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 04:40 PM
    Oxidized beer happens quick, 24-48 hours or so I've heard. The damage (f any) is done so don't
    worry about it. Splashing around in the carboy added a few O2s to your brew but I'd be willing
    to bet the...

  • Posted in thread: How long does brew day take you? on 02-24-2014 at 03:52 PM
    I do biab and I'm consistently at 6 hours. That includes setup and cleanup. I usually do a 90
    min mash and a 90 minute boil. I also heat a 2g batch of water to rinse equipment before
    starting. Right n...

  • Posted in thread: BIAB wisdom help on 02-09-2014 at 06:01 PM
    I built my setup with a 10 gallon pot and I regret it. It's too small for party-gyle brews, and
    if even though I love to brew it would be great to get ahead on some session brews with 10
    gallon batche...

  • Posted in thread: First time BIAB - terrible efficiency. What did I do wrong? on 02-02-2014 at 06:05 PM
    I usually do 5-6 gallon batches and mash with about 6-7 gallons of water. I have a 4 gallon
    bucket that I drilled holes into the bottom that sits inside one of my 6 gallon bucket
    fermentors. Before I ...

  • Posted in thread: Cold Crashing too high maintenence... on 08-03-2013 at 02:45 PM
    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...

    How'd ya quit the first time? Tell me, my wife wants to know.I've had a lot of success with
    IPA's here in Southern NH. I got my water tested and it seems to fit the profile:PH 7.7Ca

  • Posted in thread: Poll: Fermentation chamber temperature probe placement on 07-01-2013 at 09:57 PM
    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...

  • Posted in thread: Just bought a Chugger SS center pump. Need help with fittings... on 06-30-2013 at 02:18 PM
    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...
