They do snap in pretty aggressively. I have learned to keep my fingers clear!
Posted in thread: What are you reading? on 01-19-2015 at 04:42 PM
Just started reading "Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers" by Palmer and Kaminski. Not bad
so far, though I am only 1/3 into it.

The idea of the BMB allows for cloth cleaning with your hand, so the problems with scratching
plastic are not relevant unless you use a scrubby (of which there is no need)...
Posted in thread: What came in the mail for you today? on 01-14-2015 at 05:13 PM
Started on the 2nd iteration of my eHERMS rig. Got all this the past couple days. Should get my
elements and element enclosures today.
Posted in thread: critique my peanut butter stout recipe on 01-14-2015 at 04:44 PM
I made a chocolate PB stout this past fall and it seemed to have more "peanut" flavor than
peanut butter. Perhaps I had too little chocolate flavor. It was a hit with some people but too
odd for other...

Posted in thread: How much better is all grain Vs. Extract brewing?? on 01-13-2015 at 09:27 PM
All-grain can actually make your beer worse initially... Water chemistry comes into play with
the mash so it will depend on your water source. I found all my IPAs were harsh and astringent
Posted in thread: acetobacter infection. anyway to save it? on 01-13-2015 at 09:20 PM
I have had the same experience where I thought a beer was completely off. My wife (seasoned
beer drinker) tasted it and said nope - just fine. I could not drink it, but she and a friend
of hers though...
Posted in thread: Three 5500w element BK question. on 01-08-2015 at 07:07 PM
For me - in a Keggle I run one 5500w element connected to a PID for element control.Perhaps his
combination does not push enough for a boilover? I guess he uses all three to get to boil and
kills all ...
