  • I became a marathoner in 11/2009, running Philadelphia (one of America's best Beer Cities!) 26.2 miles is a great way to burn beer calories. Marathon PR is 3:47:31 at the Rehoboth Beach Marathon 2012.

  • Started in college with the Canadian "brew on premises" stores to make beer cheaper. Of course that sucked. After moving to the US, I went to a homebrew store and was shocked to find that the shelves were stacked with cans of malt extract and there were grain sacks lying around. It seemed so lame at the time to actually have to do all that work (as compared to brew on premise) but obviously I tried it and I stuck around. That was 2002. I am now all-grain, brewing 10 gallon batches. I guess "all that work" is a good thing when you can produce something you're proud of, huh? First setup was the Brewer's Best plastic starter kit. Eventually upgraded to a 10-gallon megapot from NB and built a coil chiller so I could do full boils of 5 gallon batches. Now I brew in 15-gallon Boilermakers from Blichmann on my Top Tier with 40 and 70 quart coolers for mash tuns.

    I like your idea, Tapedeck. Again, I had the spare post from having built a cleaner with the
    plant sprayer, so I'm not having to take one off.I think the ultimate would be doing it this
    way or like my...

    Clean and move on. Something probably dripped on it and dried there or else reacted with the
    copper. After you've used this once or twice it won't be pretty any more anyway. Cheers.

    Hmm. The airlock is still bubbling. Maybe I could boil the pound of lactose tonight, cool it,
    and tossed it in. I think that is a better option than me making an entirely new batch of
    basically the sa...

    Of course if you know from your preboil volume that you're over, raysmithtx' method works great
    too and is simple. I didn't get that impression from the OP.

  • Posted in thread: Increasing boil time - on the fly on 09-06-2013 at 01:45 AM
    First off, I would concern myself more with aiming for a post-boil gravity, not volume (but you
    may have also meant that). It's the gravity that's going to have a big impact on the character
    of the be...
