  • First batch was all-grain, and I never looked back. Currently rebuilding my setup after having moved to three different states in four years, losing bits and pieces along the way. Have always done some type of old-school kettle mashing. Infusions and decoctions are too complex for a primitive mind like mine.

    Okay, dusting off my tools, I also dusted off and tweaked my old water calculator. It's an
    excel spreadsheet that does all the calculations. I don't have web space to host it, but I'd be
    happy to send...

    I don't know if you're assuming beer tools is my product but just to be clear, I'm just a user.
    The question I have is when does a recipe stop being one and start being another? How much
    tweaking can ...

    The rubber hose carries only the cooling water. There is no need to clean or sanitize it. The
    hose never comes into contact with the wort. Tygon would probably be more expensive than an
    ordinary rubbe...

    First, I had never heard of that. Second, upon looking it up, it costs the same amount for 5
    feet of Tygon as does 50 ft of good quality Craftsman rubber hose. The rubber hose also comes
    with the gard...

    What you propose would be a great idea, if I didn't have to, on a moment's notice, hop off to
    Paige from time to time to help for days to a week with some properties my landlord owns (he
    gives me a br...

    There's no practical reason to keep a hierarchy of recipe ->batch 1 batch 2.After you actually
    brew a recipe, you can rename it the recipe name_brewed_2010_6_3. If you brew it again, rename
    it to the ...

    There's a place in Lafayette, Indiana, McCord's Candies, that still dispenses sodas that way,
    even their Coca Cola is squirts of syrup followed by soda water.

    Was there a reason that rubber was used for the outer tube and not tygon?

    I sent an email that used the words "batch" and "recipe" several times. Yahoo's ad after I sent
    it was for their Yahoo Personals, presuming a woman seeking a man.
