  • Posted in thread: Temperature range for automatic water fermentor chiller on 08-04-2012 at 06:48 AM
    Hello Fellow Brewers,I really want to build a fermentor chiller to control temps. I live in
    Florida and its pretty warm here, though I do keep my apartment pretty cool (70 - 73). I've
    been thinking of...

  • Posted in thread: Adapters for aquarium pump, filter and ss air stone on 08-04-2012 at 06:36 AM
    Hello Fellow Brewers,So this week, I picked up a stainless steel air diffuser, inline hepa air
    filter and an aquarium air pump. I also picked up some air line/tubing for the pump. Its pretty
    small. Ma...

    I can't find the foam sheets? Went to Home Depot and Lowes. Looked, couldn't find them, asked
    the employees and they looked at me like I was stupid. I am sure I saw them in these stores up
    in NC, but ...

  • Posted in thread: What size aquarium air pump should I use? on 07-29-2012 at 03:48 AM
    So I picked up a 2 micron stainless steel diffusion stone and an inline HEPA filter today.
    Tomorrow I plan to pick up an aquarium air pump and some tubing and use the setup to aerate my
    wort. But I'm ...

    unionrdr, Thanks again. I had not been continuing to stir throughout the boil. I will
    definitely try that as well. caioz1jp, Thank you again too. I'll definitely give it a go on my
    brew this weekend. ...

    caioz1ip, yes, I boil about 2.5 - 3.0 gallons, then top off to 5 gallons at the end. That is
    sort of what I am thinking. I think it completely desolves, but the fact is 7 - 8 pounds of
    extract in 2.5 ...

  • Posted in thread: Did my starter actually start? on 07-26-2012 at 02:13 AM
    At the rate this seems to be fermenting, that may take a while, but I will try to be patient ;)
    but I may have to brew on Sat finished or not... See I ran out of homebrew Sunday night so I'm
    starting ...

    Thanks everyone. I will reply more later, but I will say for now, I have been very deliberate
    and careful about not scorching, but it keeps happening. I turn the burner off and remove it
    from the burn...

  • Posted in thread: Did my starter actually start? on 07-25-2012 at 10:33 PM
    Thank you both. Points well taken. I will look into getting a scale soon.As for this starter, I
    have been swirling it up when I am able, probably only about 8 times since I made it. There
    were no bubb...

    For now, I am forced to use a very cheap/thin SS brewpot on an electric stove top. For now, I
    also do strictly extract (usually with steeping grains) but no mini-mash or all-grain. I've
    found that no ...
