    Wanted to give an update to this. Once I got the temp of the wort up to 65 degrees, I removed
    the heating belt from the carboy and set in the fermentation chamber with the temp controller
    set at 67 de...

    Ha! I needed a good laugh this morning. I did I nice big yeast starter and the yeast (Wyeast
    1056) was pretty fresh out of the homebrew store (was packaged on October 15). This is the 3rd
    time I'm doi...

    I finished an IPA (1.061 OG) last night and put it into a chest freezer that I use as a
    fermentation chamber with a temperature controller. Unfortunately I forgot to check the
    temperature the controll...

    Would love to get a BeerSmith2 equipment profile for this before it comes out. Did a little
    searching and it seems it may be difficult to generate one because the softwares formulas don't
    really adapt...

    I recently made a starter with Wyeast's 3864 Canadian/Belgian yeast (Unibroue) and decided to
    take the temperature of the starter during fermentation. The ambient room temp was about 66-68
    degrees. Th...

    I usually go about 1 cup of Extra Light DME in a 1000mL starter. Today I decided to do an
    experiment and did 1/2 a cup in roughly 500mL tp see what the gravity would be and my starter
    had a gravity re...

    I bought THIS one about a year ago and love it. Has already paid for itself.Do you use bags or
    jars for hop storage? Does that model have the ability to do jars?

  • Posted in thread: What model Foodsaver do you use for storing ingredients?? on 01-03-2014 at 09:29 PM
    I am looking into buying a Foodsaver, primarily so I can buy hops in bulk. I want to store them
    in mason jars and be able to just take out what I need and reseal the jar. I've been looking
    online and ...
