I'm going to say that your problem is under-pitching. A packet / vial of yeast would be good
enough for a 1.050 beer, but you'd need to double up for something as big as a 1.070 beer. It
has to do wit...
Posted in thread: When to use rice hulls and how much? on 04-06-2014 at 02:02 AM
funny, I was just wondering the same things for my first AG Hefeweizen...Google told me they
are not the rice you cook, but the hulls around that, so I have to buy from the brewstore...
:)What I'm not...

24 hours without pitching is quite a risk. Remember that there is a lag time of ~24 hours even
after you pitch. The best defence wort has against contamination is inoculation :)Seriously,
chill and pi...

It should be fine if it's strong enough. The benefit of the dome is the added strength against
the pressure of the mash. Is it flimsy?

I've taken to using rice hulls in all my beers regardless of style. It helps with the speed of
the sparge if nothing else.I use 250g for 20L and 500g for 40L brews. I use Beersmith to work
out the dif...

You're talking about no-sparge brewing. Totally valid, but more expensive. Hops utilization
would be a bit lower, but you can compensate for that.I say go for it. Worst that can happen is
you end up w...

I only really noticed that when brewing really light, clean beers like pilsners or blondes with
little hops to cover up the DMS. The aroma hops was the primary reason for the change.

I've been using a CFC for a year now, and it's been working ok, but I wanted a way to chill my
wort to below 120F as quickly as possible. A CFC was chilling 10 gallons of wort to pitching
temps in abo...

There are lots of formulas on the internet for this, but your best bet is to start with a long
line, and keep chopping off 6" at a time until you get a good pour...about a pint in 8 seconds.

Foam happens for a couple of reasons.1. Over carbonation. If you have over-carbonated beer,
there's not a really quick way to deal with it. Take the keg off the gas, and bleed the
pressure out of it e...
