    For those mounting on a wall, how are you handling temp control?The temperature control jacket

    I just go with the ol' rule of thumb...One foot of 3/16" tubing for every pound of co2. Trim
    back until perfect. Works every time! Even for a beer gun.:mug:Crazy isn't it? The only real
    advantage is, ...

    In the January/February 2016 issue of Zymurgy, home brewer Greg Terpay shared his brilliant
    idea for increasing resistance in his keg system by threading the lines with Weed Wacker

    I think you're absolutely right that there is some flavour contribution from buttering
    additions. It's nowhere near what you'd get from a later addition but that doesn't mean it's

    My suspicion, and it's only that, is that any off flavour contribution from such a small bit of
    oxygen exposure will be minimal in so big a beer. I suspect it will be just fine.

    Thank you. Great xBmt! I'd have been surprised if Biofine had introduced a flavour component
    but it's good to have the data. If I'm reading correctly, the Biofine took longer to clear but
    was as effec...

    After listening to the Peter Symons interview recently I put in an order for the Melbourne Ale
    Yeast. I'll probably just make the Tooth's recipe that he linked.

    A difference in OG is just a measurement error.Most likely the measurement error is coming from
    stratification of wort as flars suggested, although it's also possible that your volume
    measurements are...

    They are offering an opportunity to save a week or two by carbonating while fermenting (though,
    of course, anyone can do that). I believe the "one week" claims are intended more to attract
