    They are trying to find a buyer. Let's hope they find one and it continues. I saved and saved
    and wanted to buy 4 of these. Went to the site last week and toast. Maybe I'll make my own!

    I've done this several times. I can wort so it makes it much easier. Start small quantity and
    low gravity. I start at 300ml. Not sure how I got that volume. I make sure my sanitation is
    spot on. It ta...

    I had this problem with a Kolsch a few months ago. I tossed it but learned a lesson. I now just
    unroll a section of paper towel and rubber band it over the neck of my flasks. I then put some
    foil loos...

    Buy a router speed controller for $20 at HF. I like a drill that had the hand that screws into
    the from. I drilled a hole through the mill base and mounted the drill like a motor. It is an
    old, old BD...

    I generally will hook up straight tap to my homemade CFC. It is 1/2" copper inside 1" rubber
    hose. I do this if I'm making a lager to get it down while whirlpooling. I then use a small
    kiddie pool fil...

    Just go to a slurry calculator and use the cake. Also if your brewing a beer to specially grow
    yeast for Kate, I would brew a session. Something lower in Gravity, like 12-13 Plato. I used
    007 for this...

    Check the gravity to ease your mind. I would be shocked if it were an infection. In that amount
    of time an infection would be obvious IMO.

    I responded to this from my cell and it didn't show. I would get a hydrometer and check gravity
    in a week. Make sure you sanitize your thief when pulling your sample, and don't return it to
    the fermen...

    Did your preboil volume reach your predicted level? Did you boil off more than you predicted?
    Did you calculate the grain absorption correctly? I wouldn't worry much about you first batches
    and total ...

    3 weeks is probably ample time as long as you pitch enough yeast. I would use dry lager yeast
    if this your first go. Ferment temp will need to be controlled for the lager. Like around 50.
