How hot is it when you are aerating?I stir it with the wort chiller in to help it cool. Pretty
much right after the boil.

Except you WANT O2 in the wort for the yeast to grow. How do you reconcile that with the idea
that HSA causes off flavors?Right....I totally agree. In John Palmers book, he states the
aerating while h...

I know this topic has been talked about a lot, but it seems like every single one of my batches
have had that wet cardboard taste. I'm starting to think that it's because I've been stirring
my wort wh...

Posted in thread: Stainless braid or 12" bazooka screen for a mash tun cooler conversion on 10-03-2014 at 09:33 PM

for coopers kits
Posted in thread: Coopers kits are ****!!! on 03-24-2013 at 07:59 PM
I think they're alright. If I want to make a quick brew to drink then I use them. I don't like
the coopers yeast though. I'll buy some safeale 05 for a coopers kit.

extract.Here are some blog posts that discuss unfermentable sugars a little further if you are
interested. OP i...

I guess some people might like the taste of the beer even if it is high for the style. 1.048
down to 1.026 is 2.9% ABV and is equivalent to a cup of coffee with 4 teaspoons of sugar. 65%
Posted in thread: so what's the worst part of brewing for you on 03-13-2013 at 12:07 AM
I don't think delabeling is a chore really. I have a small trash can filled with PBW/Oxy water
that I toss empty beer bottles into. Most of the commercial beer I buy have labels that will
fall off aft...
