Posted in thread: Anyone miss brewing outside? on 12-22-2013 at 04:06 AM
I brew exclusively outside and always have. I would love to brew inside. The main reasons are
the ability to have a space organized. It takes a lot of time to put the rig up and put it
away. The weath...
Posted in thread: distance from burner to keggle. on 12-22-2013 at 03:50 AM
I use 20 tip NG jet burners. I've never had any trouble with burning my sight glass. When I
crank it up when I'm starting up, I just wrap some aluminum foil on the bottom of it and it is
fine. Once I ...

My favorite yeast for my brown ale. It tends to be slow in first generation. Does not floc well
for sure. I like to build my yeast up and pitch my brown yeast into my Kate The Great. Like

Posted in thread: Hop spider vs. false bottom on 12-09-2013 at 02:27 PM
One thing that IMO is key to using this style of spider is diameter. I made mine myself years
ago and I made it 15" in dia and it runs just above my dip tube. The boil comes up through the
screen. If ...
Posted in thread: HERMS Tubing 1/2 vs 3/8 on 11-29-2013 at 01:28 AM
Started with 3/8" and then moved to 1/2" because the 3/8" restricted my flow too much. It made
a big difference when I could set the grain bed and then virtually run the recirculation full
go. I bough...

Me too, I live on the way to the golf course where a bunch of my friends play. They stop to
have 2 or 3 before they go play. I had to go to 15 gallon batches on the beers my friends like.
Didn't have ...

sorry for the mistake in calculation that would be 300 sq inches or a 20 x 15 opening., or
variation of.Either size, ;), there are a lot of things in brewing for DIY. These types of

I just start my whirlpool with 15 min to go to sanitize my CFC. When the boil ends I turn on
the chiller water and continue the cooling whirlpool. When I get to about 150 I cut it off to
settle the tr...

You may want to make an immersion chiller to cool your wort after the boil. That 140 mark is
