  • Posted in thread: Using Beer Bottles from a Recycling Compost on 10-02-2014 at 01:54 AM
    Recycling centers can be a good place to pick up bottles. Most of them may be twist off cap
    bottles though. Some of these can be recapped, but never reliably. A light is a good way to
    check for cracks...

    Hello. I ordered a 3000 ml Erlenmeyer glass, tomorrow i will get it, meanwhile a friend did a
    Stir Plate for me, and i tested it with a big jar with 3 liters of water and flour (to emulate
    the yeast)....

    Here is a shorter brew time recipe. didn't go back through the tread to see if this is one of

    I would cover the fermentor with a fine mesh bag the flies will not be able to pass through. A

    Increased lag time may temperature related. If you pitch the starter cold into a comparably
    warm wort, it is stress on the yeast, a longer lag time.If you let the starter warm to pitching

    After Oct 20 , I too will only have one arm to use. Also not allowed to use the other arm for
    anything more strenuous than brushing my teeth, if I do it carefully, for a while.I have 10

    I had a problem with some New Belgium bottles. The bottles were shorter than the standard 12
    ounce. To crimp the cap the vertical column would be forced to a forward angle. I used a 3/16"
    thick piece ...

    Well, i have used both dry and liquid yeast, but have not used a starter to date. Hit my FG on
    all batches so far at 3 weeks. Pitched all yeast at about 70 degrees. I keep fermenters in
    basement which...

    Okay, I think I know how I screwed this beer up. It was an American Wheat Kit. my son wanted to
    add some sweet orange to it. We probably added too much of the sweet orange to it, which was
