  • Posted in thread: Did I rack to secondary too early? on 10-01-2006 at 03:17 PM
    I brewed a Fat Tire clone approximately 5-6 days ago. Yesterday, fermentation had slowed to
    under 5 bubbles/minute. Today I racked to a secondary fermenter. When I opened the primary,
    there was the ri...

  • Posted in thread: Used Bottle caps... on 09-22-2006 at 01:59 AM
    Ok, I'm trying to not be too ghetto, but here was my thought: I live in a 3rd floor apartment
    and space is at a premium. In order to be frugal with both space and time, I was thinking of
    cleaning and ...

  • Posted in thread: Did I bite off too much? on 09-21-2006 at 02:04 PM
    Well, after doing research for awhile I decided to order my first homebrewing kit from AHS.
    When I was looking at the kit options it said that the only extra equipment I would need for a
    mini mash wou...

    Just made my fist batch with a new, 8 gallon stainless steel stock pot that came with a turkey
    deep frier kit( I had been using a 4 gallon enameled pot from target).After the wert cooled I
    tasted the ...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentap Recommendation? on 09-18-2006 at 09:53 PM
    I purchased one a long time ago and only used it 2 times. I wasn't at all impressed. The trub
    and yeast pretty much stuck to the sides of the carboy and couldn't be removed. I had to put
    both batches ...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentap Recommendation? on 09-18-2006 at 12:41 AM
    I'm thinking of buying a Fermentap (from Morebeer) to eliminate siphoning problems. Does anyone
    have any experience with these and are they worth the $30 bucks or so? I thought before I
    bought one tha...

  • Posted in thread: Question about hop pellets on 09-16-2006 at 10:58 PM
    I've tried a couple of methods of aeration, like rocking the carboy, splashing the wort on the
    way in, etc. I just got an oxygenation system using a small oxy bottle from Home Depot and it
    rocks! Just...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling Tomorrow, Any Suggestions on 09-16-2006 at 04:01 PM
    The dishwasher method is the ONLY way to go. Just try spilling a bottle or two of your new beer
    on the kitchen floor when Mama is helping cap and you'll know what I mean! Be careful not to
    touch the i...

  • Posted in thread: Is sanitizing solution sufficient for cleaning? on 09-16-2006 at 03:46 PM
    Where I would never use soap and water is for bottle or carboy cleaning. Too hard to rinse
    properly. Normally hot water and a brush works fine to get rid of trub residue, then be
    religious on sanitizi...

  • Posted in thread: Fermenter Too Cold? on 09-15-2006 at 04:53 PM
    I'm fairly new to brewing, just did my first mini-mash for a double IPA. I keep my glass carboy
    down in the basement to ferment. We've just moved in and I've not brewed here before. The
    ambient temp d...
