Read this, and then don't lose any sleep over it.
Posted in thread: Shirron Chiller - Mounting on 07-07-2014 at 01:56 AM
I don't really have a stand, but I went to Lowes and found a bracket with holes in it, and put
the chiller on a wooden panel (next to my pump) and then drilled four long screws through the

Wheat malt really helps; I add 4-6 oz to pretty much all my beers.

Impressive that you got it to finish that fast on the first gen. Although that's the temp
regime that WL suggests (start @ 90) if you want it to finish in a shorter timeframe. When I

I use a refractometer for everything, and it works great in my hands. I've measured the abv of
several of my beers by nmr (cuz I can, lol), and have always gotten a value that was very close
to the re...
Posted in thread: Dilemma - What temp is too low to bottle carb? on 06-17-2014 at 02:59 AM
The bottles have been sitting at 12C so abt 53F. 53 F is way too cold for bottle conditioning,
