  • Posted in thread: How long can I store milled grain? on 06-03-2015 at 08:00 AM
    You can store at cellar temp for months. Just keep them mostly sealed, and mostly moisture free

  • Posted in thread: Sealed, crushed grain. How long is it good for? on 04-22-2015 at 09:21 AM
    Good for a long, long time, even if crushed. It might not be as "fresh" but my palette couldn't
    tell a difference. Even base grain is good for a long time, though the proteins/enzymes

  • Posted in thread: Keg to bottle flip top vs. regular capped bottle on 12-11-2014 at 11:49 PM
    Yes, you can bottle into standard capped 12 oz bottles. I also usually burp the keg before
    filling at a very slow rate, so as to keep more of the carbonation in the liquid. They poor

    Since my temps are closer to 212 than 32, I calibrate using boiling water. Place in the boiling

    I have leaf hops that are 3 years old kept in freezer (citra). No real depreciation. The bag

    grain particles becomes airborne as dust and takes a long time to settle-including on equipment
    that has alr...

    I throw them all in...Then I move my beer into a paint bag that is inside of another large pot
    so that it does not clog my CFC. I really need to get a new method to this trainwreck.

  • Posted in thread: Is it worth it to buy bulk grains? on 04-30-2014 at 08:04 AM
    I have just one bag of base malt. I got 55lb of maris otter for $47, so it works out for me to
    just use that.The last bag lasted me 3 years.Walmart sells containers that seal tight enough
    for me. I st...

    I did the same filter as well, with poor results. Furthermore, I suggest using PEX and cutting
    slits in it.

    Working in health care I am around enough bugs that will kill ya. I enjoy the good ones to
