  • Posted in thread: Wine + beer bottles + cork-lined caps on 01-31-2014 at 10:22 PM
    Hi all,I'm a long time beer brewer, about to bottle my first wine (Old Vine Zin). I plan to put
    at least SOME in 12 oz beer bottles for smaller portions. I just ordered some cork-lined caps
    with this ...

    Or the third option, which works like a charm. Get a buddy to pour in the grain as you pour the
    water from the opposite side of the tun. "Cross the streams" and you almost don't have to mix
    at all. I'...

    Yeah it's pretty crazy! I just harvested my hops so I'm drying them with the help of the
    dehumidifier. I have it cranked as low as it'll go and I have to empty it 3 times in 2 days.
    Doesn't help it's ...

    Hi all,Thanks so much for the great replies. We do have a nice dehumidifier, so I think Pedio
    is probably the culprit. I am pretty manic about sanitizing, but I use StarSan. I will
    investigate oxygen-...

    I've been having an increasing rate of white mold. It usually pops up in secondary, but I've
    noticed that even if I leave a half beer sitting around it will skin over within a day or two.

    I think the main reason is the anode inside the water heater is constantly (and intentionally)
    corroding into the hot water. See this: use a Stainless Indirect holding tank, so the water is
    held in a...

    This may not help, but I usually brew with a friend and we have a system that takes about 30
    seconds: one person pours the water and the other person pours the grain. Both pours happen
    simultaneously ...
