Posted in thread: Would you go all-grain or start legging first? on 12-20-2013 at 09:03 PM
I went all grain BIAB then built a 2 tap keggerator from an old mini fridge, then eventually a
4 tap keezer. All I had to do was add a 2nd manifold and 2 more taps, so I didn't waste
anything and coul...

I've added the candi sugar in the boil and afterwards a couple days into fermentation. Both
will work fine for high gravity brews as long as the yeast is healthy and you pitched
appropriately. The dar...
Posted in thread: IKEA 3-Tier Shelf on 10-23-2013 at 09:50 PM
I've purchased my fair share of IKEA furniture over the years and there is no way I'd trust any
of it with the weight even a 5 gallon 3 tier system would weigh. All of their furniture is
particle or f...

I've done this with lower gravity (~1.045) all grain batches without issue. I used beer smith

Gentiles in Grandview is my go to. Good grain selection and prices are fair for a local shop.
They let you mill your own grain which I like because I can run it through twice for BIAB.
Posted in thread: How to add Belgian candi sugar to fermenting beer? on 03-08-2013 at 03:23 AM
Sanitize the outside of the package and pour it in. The sugar is sanitary, and will get fully
consumed by the yeast. I've done this a number of times and it works.

I've brewed variations of this 3 times now and all have been terrific. Question for the all
grain brewers: Has anyone mashed this beer really low? Like ~144-146? I've always had this beer
end up aroun...
Posted in thread: Keezer Temp probe location on 03-01-2013 at 01:54 PM
I'm a dangler. I admit it. My probe sits about 8" off the floor of the freezer and rests
against the edge of one of the kegs. My freezer cycles 3-5 times a day on average and never
runs for more than ...
