  • I like to make both Wine and Beer. I was turned on by the guys at The Brew Hut in Aurora Colorado. Now, with Dry Dock Brewing, in addition to my own brews, I can get some of the best beer in the world.

  • My brother was getting out of brewing and gave me his equipment. Mostly just a carboy and a capper. I used that for extract brewing for probably 10 years. I just about quit brewing until I got a kegging system. I've since moved to all grain using converted kegs and a 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler.

    Real encouraging support. Surprising from "senior" members.:confused:That's fine. I just don't
    think the bimetal ones are worth a crap and using a probe and such also seems like a pain. And
    would ulti...

    Yay, and yeah, I'm very hopeful. This is me replying

  • Posted in thread: Thermometer question on 02-06-2012 at 06:55 AM
    Why do all of the bi-metal thermometers have such a broad range? For the mash, you really only
    need a range between 120 and 170. Does anyone know if there are thermometers with that narrow
    of a range ...

    I had another thought. I considered tying a small grain bag, like a hops addition bag, on the
    outlet of the hose to capture the small additonal amount of grain that shows up late in the
    runnings. The ...

    Sorry, slow on the response.I do occasionally see bubbling in the hose like you described. Yes,
    the hose is relatively long. I like to make sure it reaches the bottom of the boiler in order
    to minimiz...

    Hi All,What would cause this? I have a 10G rubbermaid round cooler with a SS FB for my MLT. I
    have had this happen the last two brewing sessions. I go through the mash, then vorlauf till
    clear, then a...

    Been thinking of brewin this, Do you have an all grain recipe?

  • Posted in thread: Thoughts on hotter hose water? on 03-25-2011 at 07:27 PM
    I'm in Centennial on ECCV water. Overall it's been pretty good, but it does change through out
    the year depending on what aquifer they are pulling/blending from. I'd call the water district
    and have t...

  • Posted in thread: Thoughts on hotter hose water? on 03-25-2011 at 07:16 PM
    FWIW, I use hot water right out of the tab, no filter, to fill my HLT for Strike. I used to
    filter the hot water out of the tab, but the hot water is a bitch on water filters. They only
    last like one ...
