    My only disapointment with my lagers have been bittering issues.When a recipie calls for 6
    AAU's and I use it, I don't seem to get the IBU's that I imagine it should have.I have since
    formed the concl...

    Along the same lines of the Baron's thought - if you ferment a lager at warmer temps (in an
    attempt not to need to do a D-rest) you are no longer making a lager, but are making a steam
    beer.A lager is...

    Are you aerating? I use plastic buckets to ferment in and never had a problem getting a good
    fermentation."and purposeful with aeration" - yupUnless it's not a food grade bucket or the
    "lining" has de...

    How are you determining they have not been completing? I avoid the activator packs simply
    because I don't like the way they seem to work for me. IMO they are extremely slow to start
    fermenting for som...

    You making beer - or corn squeezin's?Wouldn't you end up with way too much headspace? Sure it
    should fill up with c02...butI wouldn't worry about the mason jar and preasure - after all,
    during the can...

    I really have only one question maybe someone can help with. There's way more head space than
    in a 5 gallon carboy for your secondary. When trub comes out, air has to go in. It's simple
    physics. Do yo...

  • Posted in thread: Marine grade coolers? on 02-23-2007 at 12:52 PM
    Has any one tried one of these as a MLT? a marine grade cooler. I would imagine it's built not
    to react to the salt environment, but they have incredible cold retention. I'm getting a used
    one (I hop...

    As Vermicous pointed out, the equipment you would need to fill it is more than what the average
    home brewer is going to pay to fill a keg. Not to mention, most home brewers don't brew enough
    to even f...

    Are people going to be using these for kegging or is it for making boilers etc?Boil kettle and
    HLT for me. The other 2 I plan on using as fermenters because I'm going to do 12.5 gallon
    batches - 2 5ga...

    I just got 4 from the local big boy brewery that I don't drink anyway. Got them before they
    took them out of service. No idea why they took them out of service as the valves all work and
    they are bare...
