Great approach for your build. Using a gear reducer is the way to go. Belt and sheaves makes
the cart more complicated and is just dangerous. I've had mixed results with the Barley
Crusher. My idle ro...

did a similar one and posted details on parts: Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

such as ...

I didn't see anywhere in the thread where the data from White's Yeast book for aeration using

Posted in thread: What to do with a Tripel that finished too dry on 12-17-2013 at 02:27 AM
I have a similar issue with my tripel. I'm hitting 86% attenuation for WLP500 which should only
be 75-80%. Recently I've been oxygenating more and pitching a higher yeast cell count. I think
I read so...

Orangehero is right about flavor especially for styles whose flavor is dominated by yeast
