  • Posted in thread: Talk me off the kegging ledge... on 12-19-2014 at 02:21 AM
    I have had similar problems. I turn off my gas most of the time and periodically hit all of the
    kegs with gas to keep them dispensing beer. I have replaced almost every part of my kegging
    system with ...

  • Posted in thread: Thinking of using a 1-2 week cold crash period. on 12-10-2014 at 03:14 AM
    I just finished cold crashing a pale ale for about 3-weeks. I just didn't have time to get to
    it. It turned out great. One of the guys in my home brew club is a professional brewer and told
    me that mo...

  • Posted in thread: Wondering if it's worth it? on 11-24-2014 at 09:52 PM
    As I previously stated, I have a good electric brewing set-up for less than $100. It boils
    quickly and holds mash temps well.

    I built an electric BIAB set-up to brew in my basement in the winter. I use a Bayou Classic
    15.5 gallon with and induction burner and an element. You can get the burner for less than $60
    if you find i...

  • Posted in thread: 1st BIAB in Progress...More Sediment than Expected... on 11-23-2014 at 07:19 PM
    No worries. I am talking with Jay from NorCal to make me a custom mash basket to do BIAB. I
    would rather do a fly sparge type approach with a false bottom to keep the sediment away from
    the heating el...

  • Posted in thread: Fermenting a 5 gal Batch in a 15 gal Vessel on 11-22-2014 at 12:40 AM
    I use the spigot, but I prop up the back of the fermenter so it is leaning towards the spigot.
    I find that I don't leave much behind. It is important to prop it up and then let it settle for
    about ten...

    I regularly brew 5-gallon batches in my 16-gallon Spiedel fermenter. I have not noticed a
    difference vs. carboys. I pretty sure that the CO2 from fermentation quickly pushes the
    residual air out. I th...

    I do BIAB on an electric system in my basement because setting up the equipment outside was
    taking too much time. I do a few things to cut down on the sediment. First, I don't double
    crush. I recircul...

  • Posted in thread: Belle Saison Tastes like Green Jolly Rancher on 11-18-2014 at 01:34 AM
    No one replied, but I decided to update the thread in case anyone else runs into this issue. I
    re-brewed a beer with the Belle Saison with exactly the same results. This time I decided to
    carbonate it...

  • Posted in thread: Who here has made a home brew with maple syrup? Advice? Lessons learned? on 11-18-2014 at 01:29 AM
    I have been using maple syrup in many different beers for a long time. Since the stuff costs
    more than gold, I collect what is left each week after pancakes. When I fill my collector, I
    add it to my n...
