    It really boils down to batch size and boil times. Sorry for the pun!! I couldn't resist. No
    down side to a keggle at all, other than the work involved in making it. The only thing I can
    say is. You h...

    I need to upsize from my 8 gallon brew pot/boil kettle to at least 10 gallons. I see all the
    treads about keggles, which I think I could do the keg conversion for, but what can I expect to
    pay for a u...

    Wow! That was an awesome response, thanks. Very enlightening. Since I don't know how to do the
    math about continuous dilution, how does a 6.5 gal. fermenter with 5 gal in it compare to the

    vessel for pancake batter but I re-purposed it because it has a shallow conical bottom. The
    thing is, it c...

    Can somebody explain this to me? I get the idea of stepping up a starter but here is my dilemma
    - I used 800 ml of starter wort for a vial of WLP-004. (My plan was to crash it and use the
    following we...

    Thanks. I figured that's how the electric kettles must operate.

    Is there any reason I can't use my immersion heater, which I use to heat my hot liquor, in my
    wort to help it get up to boiling faster? Will it scorch the wort or something?

  • Posted in thread: Did I get enough growth in my starter? on 01-04-2016 at 05:28 PM
    I am kind of new to yeast propagation and am unsure if my starters are growing as they should.
