  • Posted in thread: Where to find 3/4" Weldless fittings on 03-08-2016 at 07:30 PM
    I am trying to convert my 12 gallon rectangular cooler into a hot liquor tank and I cannot for
    the life of me find any weldless fittings for it. The drain plug was 3/4" so I have a 3/4"
    brass nipple h...

    I've always had my sours take off again when adding fruit, but it usually takes a few days to a
    couple weeks. I purge my carboys with CO2 as well, so I don't worry about it.

    My LHBS recently got some Bestmalz Red X that I was hoping to use. I also wanted to brew a
    session IPA soon, so I decided to combine both into one project. I know session IPAs are
    supposed to be more ...

    I guess I really need to try some sour mashing. I've always been weary of it. I now have an
    extra 10 gallon kettles I could use for it. Do you have to maintain the temp for the 24 hours
    or do you just...

  • Posted in thread: Cream corn DMS off flavor, All Grain on 02-07-2015 at 09:56 PM
    I don't mean to be a thread hijacker, but I just tapped a supposed to be blonde ale that had a
    moderate amount of DMS. I brewed this on a prototype of a Blichmann electric pot. It was only
    120V and be...

    Subscribed. I plan on doing the same thing. What was your grain bill?Me? It was 2:1 2 row to
    pilsner with about 7% crystal 40 and 15 IBU of Glacier hops at 60 minutes. I wanted something
    very simple t...

    I brewed a 100% brett lambicus blonde ale three weeks ago. Using Wyeast's lambicus blend, I had
    hoped to get a big cherry pie nose, but the first sample I pulled this morning only has mild
    cherry flav...

    And if you use Lacto brevis, you don't have to worry about hopping. I would hop it like you
    would a normal saison for more balance. And if you haven't used Wyeast 3726, try to ferment it
    in the mid-hi...

    I had excellent results with sour mashing a portion of the grainbill for 48 hours prior to
    brewday using grain as my inoculant. The very important aspects are ensuring an oxygen-free
    environment with ...

    Finally going to get a chance to make this over the weekend but more than likely with either
    us-05 or belle saison since it's what I have on hand at the moment.US-05 works fine, too. I've
    made it with...
