    Do you have a mash tun? In addition to a 10 gallon brew pot, I use a 10 gallon Rubbermaid
    cooler with SS braid as a filter. I'm not sure the 5 gallon pot would be much use as you would
    need 10 gallon ...

  • Posted in thread: Major siphon issues.... on 04-18-2011 at 10:00 PM
    I thought it could be the tubing so I have had a hose clamp on it although I'm using 3/8"
    tubing. I am noticing the bubbles are coming up from the bottom of the auto-siphon as opposed
    to starting wher...

  • Posted in thread: Major siphon issues.... on 04-17-2011 at 10:38 PM
    So I've been brewing AG for several years and have never had an issue with basic siphoning from
    the fermenter to the bottling bucket (I use an auto-siphon). A couple brewings ago, I was
    having issues ...

  • Posted in thread: Trouble setting up johnson controls a419 on 09-10-2010 at 02:28 AM
    +1 on Drbobcats recommendation to tape the probe to the side of your fermenter. I have the same
    controller and tape it to my bucket and then tape some bubble wrap over top of it. I also set
    my temp to...

  • Posted in thread: Pump for immersion chiller on 09-09-2010 at 10:21 PM
    I have to improve my AG cooling methods due to the fact our tap water is over 80. I have been
    running tap water through a pre-chiller placed in a cooler of ice water then over to the
    immersion chiller...

  • Posted in thread: Dry hop question, bagged vs. free floating on 09-09-2010 at 02:55 AM
    I always went to a secondary for dry-hopping but on my last IPA, I just dry-hopped right in my
    primary bucket near the very end of fermentation with leaf hops. Much easier since whole leaf
    hops just d...

  • Posted in thread: Effeciency and the steel braid??? on 09-09-2010 at 02:46 AM
    I've never had this issue on my 10 gallon Rubbermaid with a braid. Did you secure a brass head
    plug to the end? That helps to weigh it down. Otherwise, I try to be careful when stirring and
    not be too...

  • Posted in thread: Bottle bombs in my future? on 04-13-2010 at 01:37 AM
    Excellent - thanks guys. Any insight on the temperature to use in the priming sugar
    calculation? I use BeerSmith, but I'm still unclear on what temperature to plug in there - the
    ferment temperature, ...

  • Posted in thread: a 4 week spring ale? on 04-13-2010 at 01:26 AM
    I brewed EdWorts Kolsch in mid-March and half of it is gone already. I actually screwed up and
    added 30% too much priming sugar so after 1 week in the bottles I stuck them all in my fridge
    to knock th...

  • Posted in thread: First AG, my OG came out 20 points low!! on 04-01-2010 at 10:06 PM
    I would read up on the entire process before attempting again. I'll plug Bobby_M here on his
    All-grain primer. I printed that out and had it by my side on my 1st one and it was a big help.
    Also, I'd i...
