Posted in thread: Grain too old? on 01-06-2017 at 10:34 PM
I used a bag of two year old two row and although it tasted fine, the efficiency was 20% low.
Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 05-20-2012 at 09:02 PM
Kegging a NB/Centennial APA. Also transferring 12 gallons of IPA to secondary and dry hopping
with 2.5oz of Falconer's 7 C's hop. This was the second time I brewed this IPA exclusively
using those 7C'...

Only one way to be sure, grab a bottle opener. :D

to make it's presence known without being too overpowering.

I use Irish Moss in all my brews at 15 minutes left in the boil. On the lighter beers where
clarity is a concern, I will dissolve a tsp of gelatin in 150* water and add that to the empty
keg and trans...
Posted in thread: Force carbonating on 05-20-2012 at 07:19 PM
As stated, you're better off carbonating when the beer is already cold. With the dual
regulators you can force carb one while serving the other. If you set them both to serving
pressure it will take 1...
Posted in thread: inventory stock question on 05-20-2012 at 06:49 PM
Once I stepped up to brewing 12 gallon batches, it only made sense to get my own mill and buy
grains in bulk. You pay $.50 on the dollar by buying a 55# bag as compared to 1-5# at a time
from the LHBS...
