  • Lets see a little background on myself, I am currently a student at Oregon State University where I am studying to get my Masters degree in Chemical Engineering (got my undergrad at OSU in chemical engineering as well). I am hoping to finish up here in the next three months. I am from Portland Oregon but currently reside in Corvallis as thats where I go to school.

  • I got into home brewing just because it sounded fun and a friend wanted me to help him out. That was when I was an undergrad about 5 years ago but had to take an unfortunate break when school took over so there was a year or two when I hardly brewed at all. But home brewing had a good hold of me as I took a few graduate level fermentation science courses (and yes they even went toward my degree) and it really opened up my eyes to the world of beer. My goals are to either go into silicon processing or nanotechnology (my specialties) or to somehow find a good local brewery or distillery.

    My current setup is a three tier all grain gravity fed capable of 5-15 gallons. I normally only brew 5 at a time though. Its a little rough but it gets the job done for now until im out of school and have the money to make something better. I have more carboys than I know what to do with and three modified kegs (hand built by my father) that can ferment/distill/hot liquor tank/kettle... whatever I nee

    I would have to agree with bosox. OG and FG are just guidelines, however, if you are trying to
    clone a beer exactly and thats the recipe you want to follow as close as possibly. But who is
    to say that...

    I find it interesting that no one can get starsan to work. I leave my bottles in starsan at
    room temp for a day sometimes for 48 hours and the labels come right off. Yes, Rogue bottles,

    I dunno what GreenMonti uses, however using a simple die and puller set that you can get for
    $50 at Harbor Freight works great when we TIG our equip together. All we do is start the bevel

    Keep on rocking, Im really curious how this turns out. Kinda looks like a strange form of a
    calandria (used in commercial brewing). I have never really seen copper "welded" like that,
    normally we just...

    pulled pint off it a few nights ago and noticed that the beer had some killer kick to it (more

    I wouldnt say its necessary for a fan in the tower. I have only had issues when its really hot,
    but 70 F or below and I dont have many issues with foaming. That being said, it is recommended
    :P But I ...

    With an ale, I recommended dropping the trub on day 2, then waiting 5 or 6 days later to
    harvest. The hops and break are gone with the first dump, and it's all yeast after that (or
