Posted in thread: Blichmann Burner and Low Pressure Propane on 02-02-2014 at 10:34 PM
Thanks for the updates. I was really hoping you were able to get your burners really going with
the low pressure propane, so that I could copy your setup. Sent from my BNTV600 using Home Brew
Posted in thread: Level sensing methods on 01-15-2014 at 06:27 PM
I should really check for myself but...Is the bubbler type affected by wort density?Since the
bubbler method is actually sensing a pressure and converting that to a level/volume then I
would expect it...

You're not going to be able to use ice water to freeze the layer that includes the trub, since
the water in the ice water bath will only be at the freezing point of water. The beer will have
a lower f...

Yeah I know. Chief Lil' Ear was the SWMBO's nickname growing up and she wanted me to work it
into a beer. So I decided to do an American IPA and change India to Indian. It's a play on
words. Your not ...

like the Farmhouse or...

I have a nichrome inoc loop and an alcohol lamp. I'm incinerating the loop, cooling on the
agar, then dipping into my liquid cultures. Obviously I'm getting too much there. So, after
streaking an area...

It looks like when you're streaking your plates, you still have too much yeast on the
innoculating loop (or whatever you are using) even at the end of the streaking, and you're not
getting colonies fo...

How did the colonies of the lacto look from the berliner weiss yeast on the plate? Are they
easily distinguishable with the naked eye vs. the sacc? I can't really see two distinct colony
shapes on the...

I also like yeastcalc.com. I remember hearing from a webcast from someone from wyeast that for
a hefeweizen, pitch 6-12 million cells/mL, depending on what you want to accentuate. Since you

I wouldn't add water WHILE cooling, since that will lower the rate of heat transfer out of your
wort to the water bath. Instead cool until you can add cold water to get the final temperature
