    Conan actually flocs fairly well and John says as much in the oft-mentioned video. He
    attributes most of the haze to hop-derived compounds.

    I was watching the Chop & Brew video and what caught my attention was when they asked John
    Kimmich about Conan. His answer got into how many generations they use. I believe he says that
    after 10 gener...

    Regarding a mash tun pre-heat which becomes very important this time of year (at least in my
    area and for my garage brewery setup), I've found that adding a few quarts of boiling water to
    the mash tun...

    Fermented my first batch in a bucket with a leaky lid. Didn't know it at the time. No bubbles
    from airlock. Measured gravity after 3 days and fermentation was complete. No worries.

    The BierMuncher method wins. Cheap and easy and you most likely have everything you need.

  • Posted in thread: Cold Crashing airlock on 09-14-2015 at 06:11 PM
    I replace the airlock with a solid stopper when cold crashing. I don't remove it until I'm
    ready to transfer with CO2. Yes, air gets sucked in when you remove the stopper but I
    immediately purge and t...
