  • Posted in thread: 1 port or 2 port for my brew pot? on 03-24-2014 at 10:54 PM
    Definitely go with BobbyM's stuff. He's got about every variety you'd need, and the one I got
    works great. I think he carries a nice step bit as well, so you can get both in one shot (or at
    least he u...

    Yeah, I'd say that's definitely yeast. You probably siphon just fine, but being a darker beer
    you probably just couldn't see the yeast still in suspension, which then settled out in the
    bottle. How lo...

    Pics would be good, just to get an idea of what you're talking about. Is the yellow gunk at the
    top or bottom of the bottle? Either way, if the beer tastes ok I'd imagine it's probably yeast,
    either a...

  • Posted in thread: Brew 2 cans of Brewferm Grand Cru on 03-07-2014 at 08:36 AM
    I'm assuming the brewferm is malt extract, in which case you can certainly use two cans instead
    of 1, it will just give you a higher gravity if one can is meant to make 9L. That's not
    necessarily a ba...

  • Posted in thread: Re-Heat Wart after protein rest on 03-07-2014 at 08:21 AM
    If you're careful not to heat the wort too quickly, you should be ok. If you heat it up too
    fast some parts of it might get hot enough to denature the enzymes you'll need to convert the
    rest of the ma...

    Are you talking about plain nitrogen, or a nitrogen/carbon dioxide blend? You'll probably want
    a blend to keep the beer carbed while you're serving it. After that, to figure out whether that
    will be e...

  • Posted in thread: Timeline for first yeast starter. on 03-07-2014 at 07:57 AM
    If you've got the time, its hard to go wrong with starting it early. After that, it depends on
    whether or not you'd like to add the whole starter to your beer, or cool and decant the starter
    wort befo...

  • Posted in thread: Parti-Gyle volume question on 03-07-2014 at 12:58 AM
    I like the Braukaiser partigyle simulator to figure out my gravities/volumes, and it usually
    comes out pretty close. Granted, I'm doing it a little differently than you (3gal followed by
    5gal), but th...

  • Posted in thread: Is there a specific formula? on 03-04-2014 at 11:21 PM
    A formula depends on what kind of extract they're using, as well as the efficiency of all-grain
    you're able to get. Generally, I believe a good starting point is that [1lb grain = 0.75lb LME
    = 0.6lb D...

  • Posted in thread: Tips on breaking up dry extract exposed to humidity on 02-12-2014 at 01:24 AM
    I like the food processor idea, I may have to give that a shot. I tested it again last night
    and I'll definitely have to try to chisel some off, as I'm not even sure if the piece as it is
    will fit int...
