    Scrub with some water and Oxy Clean it will get most of it off. My kettle will never look like
    new on the bottom, but I got over it. I don't care about the bottom of my kettle - I care about
    what I th...

  • Posted in thread: 1-Gallon Brewers UNITE! on 01-25-2015 at 10:38 PM
    Today I did my 2nd all-grain 1 gallon batch. Both of them were Brooklyn Brewing batches. I did
    their IPA a few weeks ago (bottled this weekend) and today did their oatmeal stout. The stout
    was on clea...

  • Posted in thread: Question about pitching yeast starter on 01-25-2015 at 10:28 PM
    I've done it both ways numerous times and have not noticed a difference. Like all things in
    brewing - try it one way this time and the other way the next time and see if you can tell
    anything. All tha...

    I've been brewing in a garage all fall/winter. It's fine - just be sure you have your garage
    door wide open and assuming you have a rear door, open that too to get cross ventilation. I
    really enjoyed ...

  • Posted in thread: bottle rinser vs. spray bottle? on 01-25-2015 at 10:20 PM
    I've never really thought of using a spray bottle to spray inside beer bottles for sanitizer.
    If it works, then there is no reason to buy that item. Test it and try. I have that item and it
    does save ...

    Fire up for the MAC! I read months ago that CMU was offering a program like that too. As a CMU
    grad, I'm happy to see the Chips (and dare I say those lousy Broncos) offer these new programs.
    Wish they...

  • Posted in thread: What would you buy if you were me? on 01-25-2015 at 04:06 PM
    $300 worth of ingredients to make more beer! In all honesty, yeah - if you have the time/space
    sounds like kegging is your nest step. I don't have either, so I'm bottling 4-life. Sounds
    liked you've g...

  • Posted in thread: Which yeast & why on 01-25-2015 at 12:37 PM
    I think harvesting Safale US-04 and US-05 are two of the best yeasts you can save. My rule of
    thumb is 5 for APA, IPA or beers about at the "hop spectrum" of Sam Adams Boston Ale, while I'd
    use 04 for...

  • Posted in thread: How do you use Cocoa Nibs on 01-23-2015 at 10:33 PM
    Don't remember any head retention problems at all. I soak them in VANILLA vodka for a day or so
    (enough vodka to cover the nibs) and then pour that stuff (nibs + vodka, it kind of turns into
    a thick s...
