    ok, thanks. This was the first time using that sanitizer. :) Now, the sour smell I got from my
    beer...I realize it's impossible for you guys to diagnose over the internet, but does this beer
    normally ...

    On the 25th of June I brewed Ed Worts House Pale Ale, which I had to make some adjustments to
    his recipe in order to account for my equipment. Here's the recipe I used:Please note that I
    had to settle...

    I'm no chemist, but as far as I know, when doing this method, I don't think the water chemistry
    is too critical. Basically as far as the process goes, bring the appropriate amount of water
    upto 152 de...

    I know you said you aren't set up forr all grain, but you might consider doing a mini mash with
    some two row and vienna malt and using extracts for the remainder of your fermentables. If you
    are alrea...

    I cut my pieces today by scoring and snapping the foam. While the cuts were clean enough, they
    didn't end up perfectly perpendicular to the face. If I wasn't such an impatient man, I would
    have used a...

    did some searching and found some info about hot knives. While I can certainly see the benefit
    to using one, it looks like you would lose quite a bit of the foam with each cut. Since I will
    be followi...

    Thanks for the tip. I hadn't heard of the hot knife tool...I'll look into one. I was thinking
    of lining all the foam with something like linoleum(the stuff on a roll rather than adhesive
    tile) but I'm...

    I've decided to build the 38DD Mother of a Fermentation Chiller. While I have a fairly good
    idea how I'm going to build it, I wanted to know if anyone has/is using one of these and had
    any tips for sm...

    Another thing you can consider is the use of fining agents after primary fermentation is done.
    There are many out there such as gelatin, isinglass and polyclar. I can't remember what its
    called, but t...

    One might add more yeast(a strsin that is good for the level of alcohol in thr beer). I have to
    ask, though - how can you be sure they are dead?
