    Thanks guys. I knew nothing about this. I'll have to research this change over and consider
    removing the old ones.

    I've been having trouble with my taps getting sticky and last night took the cake when i tried
    to pull an IPA and had to use so much force that I broke the brass handle while the beer was
    tricking out...

    This won't apply to all applications, but I bought a piece of #4 SS mesh and cut out a round
    section to fit the bottom of my fermentation bucket. I pushed a 'dome' into it so the center of
    it sits abo...

    Even if there isn't any contamination, I'd expect the lost extract represented the easiest to
    pull out of the cubes, so re-soaking the cubes is unlikely to provide the expected
    intensity...Cheers!I th...

    I have been soaking some oak cubes and bourbon in a ziplock Baggie for over a month now. Today
    in a senior moment my wife managed to lodge the Baggie between a cabinet and the microwave
    puncturing the...

    Well, unfortunately this (expensive) beer turned out to be a great lesson of what NOT to do.
    Obviously using the Home Depot paint strainer bags just does NOT work for pellet hops (despite
    that I had s...

    I dry hopped with pellets. I got the same Home Depot paint strainer bags someone on here
    mentioned and I even doubled the bag over to thicken it before tying it off. There are
    definitely flakes floati...

    I took the advice of some of you and decided to dry hop in the keg for this latest IPA. I
    didn't do anything extravagant, I just filled a sanitized paint strainer, tied the bag shut and
    dropped it int...

    A laymans look at it (no science behind my opinion): Sparging is rinsing more sugars out of the
    grain. If you return those sugars to the grain you might even lose sugars back to the
    grainbed.I suspect...

    I'm going to pose what would probably be a stupid question but I think my brain tells me
    there's some logic to it so I'm gonna go with it.I have been extract brewing for years now and
    have changed my ...
