    Thanks! I wasn't sure whether to expect the ice to become clear or not, the pics helped.

    So I started trying to freeze the beer this weekend, and it's not as simple as I had thought.
    I've brought it down to 14F overnight, and I keep moving it around in the carboy to see how
    thick it's get...

    Does network engineer count? I also saw someone mention military on page 1, and I fit into
    both: I teach network engineering to Marines, 2003-Present.

    Pale Ale) = 314 gallonsI'm assuming you meant 414 so I'll start there:5.5 Gal Belgian sour ale=

    The real question is, what temperature would you have to mash the dog in at to still get good

    When no matter what size your setup is, you regret going too small.

    To begin with the calculations are not as straight forward as one might think. Here's an
    example. The function dens(p,t) returns the density of an alcohol water solution that is 100*p
    percent ABW at t...

  • Posted in thread: Hydrometer readings. on 12-22-2016 at 03:44 PM
    I saw a proofing hydrometer during a tour of a microdistillery. Unless they come in different
    sizes, the one I saw couldn't possibly have been mistaken for a brewing hydrometer. It was the
    size of my ...

    Thanks for the input! This has really helped me simplify things. Did you mash low (145F ish)
    for an extremely long time? I have a hard time believing an 1.104 beer will hit 1.010 unless
    you had a cons...

  • Posted in thread: Stupid question of the day Refractometer vs. Hydrometer on 12-20-2016 at 08:51 PM
    ....refractometers are pretty much temperature independent, but alcohol will throw them
    off.......... I need to rethink my entire life after reading that. I guess I have some reading
    to do.
