    All good points. But in my orig post, I never mentioned lagering. I only need 55/60 degrees. I
    rarely if ever make lagers and if I do, I can use my beermeister. Another thing I can do as
    switch out th...

    That's a good, valid question. I would assume you always get an answer because each persons
    needs are different. In my case:a. I want something with plenty of room for my conical, a
    carboy, and a coup...

    Of course after i posted, I realized I forgot to correct my numbers. There was going to be a
    foam wall between the 18" chamber and the rest which would have brought my dimensions more in
    line so pleas...

    Hi folks, I've decided I need to build a fermentation chamber. I can put a finish on a dog turd
    that'll make you go ahhhhh, but as far as building.. ehh, well I try. And I want to do this so
    I sat and...

  • Posted in thread: Oxiclean on Stainless I DARE you to prove me wrong on 06-26-2014 at 07:54 PM
    I read somewhere a while ago that the Oxyclean without the blue crystals is basically the same
    as PBW. I dunno. I leave PBW in my kegs for a long time with no issues. Haven't found OC
    without the blue...

  • Posted in thread: How do you measure mash temp? on 06-26-2014 at 07:46 PM
    I set my water temp 14 or 15 degrees over the mash temp I want. I use a big Gott cooler so
    after I dump my water and add my grains, I'm usually on or a degree or two above. As was stated
    above, I seal...

    Pick up or visit the Forham/Old Dominion brewery in Dover. Their Oak Barrel Stout is a favorite
    of mine. You could also visit the 16 Mile Brewery in Georgetown. A short ride from Rehoboth.

    Survey done. Aside from smoking ribs for my dad and refinishing furniture, I will be learning
    to give my dog insulin shots since he was diagnosed with Diabetes yesterday. :(

  • Posted in thread: Transferring 12 hours early or 12 hours late on 06-12-2014 at 02:49 PM
    Same as above. All that xtra time does is clog up my fermenter for the next batch. When it's
    done, it's done.And a +1 on the instructions. While they are nice for beginners, once you get a
    few batches...

  • Posted in thread: Did I boil too much off? on 06-12-2014 at 02:38 PM
    On full boils don't forget to account for lossage after the boil etc.. So if the final result
    would be to actually get 6 gallons, I would not boil down to 6 because you will lose a bit more
    in transfe...
