    Maybe a few wks after tapping. I used to leave everything in the primary 4+ wks, and I think my
    autosiphon skillz were never really that stellar (always got stubborn air bubbles). Now most of
    my beers...

    I've not really experienced the cardboard taste that people talk about with bad oxidation but I
    do make a lot of very pale beers, like all base malt and session stuff. I noticed that they
    would be gre...

    The thermowell is pretty tight in that carboy hood. Anyway, for me the beer is usually in a keg
    shortly after the action stops, either to age there or in the keezer for a short turn around
    beer. After...

    It's a thermowell, I use ranco controllers and the probes are pretty small.

  • Posted in thread: Alts for Briess Brewer's Malt and Briess Pale Malt on 04-27-2015 at 11:08 PM
    Their brewer's malt is what other domestic maltsters call 2-row - Great Western, Rahr, etc -
    usually in the 1.8-1.9L range. The pale ale malt is a little darker kilned, 3-4L, so other
    domestic pale al...

    Yeah forgot about mixing the wort. I guess it could work if you batch sparge. The first
    runnings should yield about 4.5 gal or so after absorption, collect those in a bucket, measure
    and split into th...

    Well my pale is chugging along at 67* currently, pitched at 64 yesterday. It is kind of a fizzy
    krausen, not thick. I have high hopes!

    Big thanks to everyone who helped with this beer. It turned out a bit more bitter than I like.
    Not sure why.I'm going to be making this again just using a different hops for the flavor and
    add the bit...

    Currently keeping:- 1217-Pacman-3787, 3711 -1010- WL 830-Spencer Trappist yeast - first batch
    currently brewing from a bottle culture, if it turns out well I plan to maybe replace 3787 as a
    house Belg...

    There are some simple mash calculators here. Looks like 24 lbs at 1.25 qt per lb should take up
    about 9.42 gallons so will be tight but doable I think. I'd probably add the grain first, or at
    least mi...
