    I like the pear idea!How about halving them, giving em a few minutes on the grill to caramelize
    a bit, let cool, mush em up and rack onto them?That sounds like a winner. I think gas would be
    the way t...

    I was thinking racking onto crushed or dried cherries, or maybe raspberries or strawberries.
    I'd need to do a bit more research on how much would be suitable for the flavor to come through
    without ove...

    ... you consider buying your oats for oatmeal at the LHBS store because it's about half the
    price of store bought oats.Seriously? I get 2lbs of oatmeal at the grocery store for about $
    1.50. You're lo...

    Not in a way that would be detrimental. At the homebrew scale it is HIGHLY unlikely that you
    could over pitch in anything. Perhaps if you made a 1 gallon test batch and used a one gallon
    starter with ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast, alcohol content, and bottling? on 08-12-2014 at 07:28 PM
    Not sure what yeast you used, but a couple times a year I brew some BIG beers in the 10.5-12%
    range. I haven't added yeast to the bottling bucket yet and I bottle those beers. So far I've
    not had any ...

    That sucks. A lot. Have you got a hole in the keg or in beer line?

    Personally ive never worried about it. Never had a problem. The bushings are again oil
    impregnated bronze. Unless crushing macro brewery sized batches regularly there is almost no
    way we on a homebrew...

    We would clean with compressed air but I've had it apart twice after the one roller would seize
    up. First time was probably about 6 batches in from original purchase, I cleaned but neglected
    to re-oil...

    Definitely measure with a feeler gauge - one more thing to go in your brew notes. If you're
    cool with your efficiency, you probably don't have to mess with it, but keep in mind you will
    have to disass...
