  • I'm forever indebted to the Maltose Falcons who taught me good brewing practices very early on. I home-brew on HERMs Rig, ferment in a temp-controlled Sanke and serve out my dual-tower kegerator. I'm of the opinion that achieving perfect balance in a beer is far more difficult, yet far more worthy pursuit than the current trend of overdoing ABV, Hops, Crystal, Sourness or whatever the trend tomorrow will be.

    I migrated to the Android mobile version a few months ago when it was time to replace my aging
    and vulnerable XP computer, and because I left windows entirely and went with a ChromeBook.

    Could someone give me some very basic knowledge on how a tig welder gets a sanitary ferrule
    into a keggle (with tri-clovers both inside and outside the keg)? If we start with a sanitary
    ferrule with i...

    No need for split batches. Check your gravity before and after dryhopping. Unless you are
    dryhopping prior to your beer finishing this should clear up any confusion. Just speculating
    but if your dryho...

    Komodo - If you're a "yeast technician", can you confirm that yeast that is kept from settling
    out (typically by mechanical stirring) attenuates higher than yeast allowed to settle? And if
    you agree w...

    Does anyone have solid data around this subject? Please share if you do.

    I agree that dry hopping provides nucleation sites to stimulate CO2 out-gassing, but at the
    risk of swimming against the current,, I suspect that the increased wort agitation might slow
    flocculation a...

    My home-brewed ales are consistently attenuating well beyond Wyeast published ranges and I
    wondered if dry-hopping could be the explanation. Here’s a concrete case study (my most
    current pale al...

    What i am doing is making my own tri clover ball valves, taking the 3 piece ball valve apart
    and drilling out the threads in the ends and welding in 1/2" tube to a tri clover fitting..Hey,

    I wish I could post more pictures here because I think you would get the drift of what a 15"
    false bottom can stop. I use an IC and was testing a new product. The 15" stopped about 80% of
    all the hops...
