Posted in thread: Plate Chiller - Oxygen Ingress on 12-03-2016 at 04:10 PM
What makes you think a plate chiller will cause oxygen ingress? Once you start pumping wort
through it, all the air is pushed out of it. That should all happen within a few seconds after
turning your ...

BCS has a recipe editor now that takes me only a single minute to enter the mash profile, boil
time, and set the boil addition timers. Directly importing from beersmith or some other SW
would be nice,...

I've never used campden tablets other than for making wine. I've always used a filter to remove
chlorine or chloramine. The manufacturer of the filter should list a flow rate to stay under to

I've been thinking about doing a citruisy gose for a while now. I think I will do something

Why not just use a T instead of a cross. The cam lock will give it some more room for a 3 inch
probe. I have a 2 inch probe in mine, but if you swap the male and female connectors it will
cover a 3 in...

Chloride or Chlorine? I was talking about chlorine (or chloramine, which is bound chlorine). I
know just a few ppm of chlorine can potentially result in chlorophenol transformations by

Similar to Texaswine I also ferment under pressure with a spunding valve and have done lots of
keg to keg transfers under pressure. I usually set the pressure in the receiving keg to 5 psi
lower than ...
