  • Posted in thread: Groom to be needs inspiration for wedding brews on 03-18-2015 at 06:45 PM
    Congratulations! For the groom's beer I'd recommend a porter over a barleywine. I think
    barleywine is a very acquired taste that a lot of your guests probably haven't acquired. Since
    it's October mayb...

  • Posted in thread: The Irish Moss Effect | xBmt Results! on 03-16-2015 at 05:05 PM
    I've always wondered this too. I generally use it in all of my lighter colored beers but
    haven't noticed a substantial difference in clarity when I've forgotten. Then again, I've never
    done 2 batches ...

  • Posted in thread: Legality of homebrewing in Kentucky? on 03-16-2015 at 04:57 PM
    Wow, am I the only one around here that condones illegal activity? I say brew it, drink it and
    pass it around freely. If the KY cops give you trouble you tell them I said it was OK. I may be
    out of th...

  • Posted in thread: Importance of temp control after a week on 03-13-2015 at 08:48 PM
    You certainly can start bringing up the temp after a week or so to "clean up" your beer but
    it's not necessary. There's certainly no harm in it at that point. Ultimately I wouldn't worry
    too much abou...

    Glad you can see the humor in that. I hoped you would. 2 parallel camps. :mug:I got an auto
    siphon in a bunch of equipment that came free with a 20# CO2 tank, double regulator and stuff
    off CL. After ...

  • Posted in thread: 30 min mash Success! on 03-11-2015 at 01:37 PM
    My big "time saver" is doing 2 batches in a day. Of course on brew day you're taking more time,
    but you've got half as many brew days meaning half as many trips to the basement to haul the
    gear up, ha...

    Do you really use an auto siphon? I highly recommend a racking cane. So much easier! :mug:HA!
    Indeed. To each their own. :)

  • Posted in thread: Problems with my Black Box Fermentation Temp Controller on 03-11-2015 at 01:20 PM
    I sent him some pictures via email and he was able to walk me through a couple small things.
    Now it's working perfectly! Hooray for excellent customer service!

    Thanks for this tip regarding the plastic, that makes a lot of sense. I guess that goes for the
    racking cane, bung and everything else plastic. When you did add your fruit addition, after
    final gravit...

  • Posted in thread: Three Month Hiatus: Suggestions for long fermenation on 03-10-2015 at 04:13 PM
    brewmax25 & cernst151I like the idea of trying a sour because I feel the time away lends itself
    to experimentation. Any common pit falls that I should avoid? Would a high starting gravity be
    benificia...
