    It doesn't really matter, you really don't need an airtight seal on your fermenter. Yes. In a
    pinch, I have used plastic trash cans I got at Family Dollar to primary and secondary with no
    problems. I...

  • Posted in thread: First IPA with Columbus hops - critique please on 02-06-2011 at 04:32 PM
    I think the Columbus hops will completely overpower the Cascade hops. You may want to consider
    moving the Cascade additions to the end of your boil/dry hop. I recently brewed a similar batch
    using Sim...

    Any of them will work fine for an amber. I would only worry about the color of the extract if I
    was trying to make a very pale recipe.

    This happened to me. It was due to over carbonation. I made a pale ale and experimented with
    priming for 3.0 volumes CO2. The only other thing different in the recipe was the use of 1 lb
    of Gambrius H...

    It could be a combination of live yeast and something you ate. Has your diet changed recently?
    Yeast plus sugary food, like cookies, can do it to me.

  • Posted in thread: Hop bags in the way on 01-09-2011 at 06:28 PM
    I just boil the hops without a bag. For my last few batches, I've strained during transfer with
    the nylon paint straining bags from Lowes. But honestly, I haven't noticed anything different
    in the tas...

    If you want to use the Coopers tablets, you don't need to use a bottling bucket. You can bottle
    straight from the fermenter. You would have to take extra care to keep the racking cane from
    sucking up ...

    Is the CO2 you get for paintball a food-grade? Some gasses used for non-food industrial
    purposes can contain trace amounts of oil.

    I've used frozen raspberries, but never used an extract so I can't give you a comparison. I'd
    say go ahead and make the kit per the recipe. You can always make another batch with fresh or
    frozen berri...
