    ABOUT ME

  • Oakland, CA
  • Seems to be mostly
    brewing theses days.
    Others are cooking and
    working on the beer
    cellar.
  • Dave B
  • Lets just put it this way, Dean Martin is cataloged next to Marilyn Manson.
  • VP, Bay Area Mashers
  • I brewed extract from '94-'98 in San Diego, but gave it up as we found we could buy better than I could brew- since we had the keg setup already, everything got switched over to sankey.

    To make a long story short, I moved to Oakland in '05, and in '07 figured I needed a hobby and started up again (I still blame Sean O'Sullivan for this...). Did 1 extract batch, then 3-4 partial mashes, then jumped to all-grain. Moved to 12 gallon batches in 08, and brewed 22 batches that year alone.

    Kind of an oddity, I brew at both ends of the gravity spectrum, but rarely in the middle. Most beers are around 1.050, then start again at 1.090.
  • Alt
  • Klsch, WC Pale
  • Old Ale, Braggot
  • A bunch of strong beers, back from before I started kegging.
  • Wheat wine
  • Male
  • In a Relationship

    I plan on doing sodas one day, but will just keep carbonated water on tap with multiple syrups
    in hand pumps.I am interested in doing just this - swmbo likes lime-flavored carbonated water
    etc., and i...

    Thanks for posting the picture. What size (diameter) of galvanized ducting did you use? I
    decided to go with the sq14 because of the larger size top for more balance with my keggle and
    larger brew pot...

    You've already got it, so my 2 is kine of moot, but for others, here goes. The SQ-14 I used to
    have I liked for the frame to hold a big kettle, but the burner can blow itself out when
    cranked, so you...

    Howdy folks- Just wanted to let you all know about this upcoming homebrew comp. While based in
    the SF Bay Area- it is open to all homebrewers. Last year we had folks from 12 states enter, so
    that was ...

    Funny- I was just talking about this exact idea to product designer friend recently, but I lack
    the ability to engineer something like this! I have pages and sketches of notes and the big
    question was...

    Either you are pumping the wrong direction or you have a defective plate chiller. Have you
    called dudadiesel?I may try to switch the flow direction next time just to see- but per the
    'manual', it's fl...

    You may have hit on something there. Not lying flat would channel flow through the chiller, I
    would think.I decided to do some tests - heating the H2O now and will post back w/
    results.:mug:

    I think there's a really good chance that you are NOT counterflowing the two liquids through
    the chiller. You really need the hot wort to hit the coolant on it's way out, that way as the
    wort cools th...
