  • Posted in thread: stir bar won't stay in middle of my flask on 12-02-2016 at 05:17 PM
    Maybe someone can help me with this. I finally popped for a 2L Erlenmeyer flask for yeast
    starters. I got it at the homebrew shop. I've never had a problem with my 1L flask, but with
    the 2L the stir b...

  • Posted in thread: starter cold-crash, decant and storage question on 11-08-2016 at 06:07 PM
    Thanks for replies. when I said a 2L starter I was referring to the size of the flask, sorry.
    The only reason I wanted to downsize the container is because that flask takes up a lot of room
    in my litt...

  • Posted in thread: starter cold-crash, decant and storage question on 11-08-2016 at 03:49 PM
    I made a starter that I stepped up to 2 liters (about 1.5 liters actual volume) then
    cold-crashed it. I don't plan to use it for a week or so. What I would like to do is decant
    most of the liquid off ...

  • Posted in thread: low carbonation in my dubbel on 03-01-2016 at 06:07 PM
    I've had good luck with bottle carbonation using 3/4 cup of corn sugar in a 5 gallon batch. I
    just made my first dubbel and used the usual amount of corn sugar but after two weeks in the
    bottle I trie...

  • Posted in thread: Why wait until late in boil to add of DME? on 02-19-2016 at 05:06 PM
    Thanks. So because it was boiled already the hot-break stuff and coagulation of proteins has
    already been done for you? Probably a dumb question - just trying to understand...

    I see one of the extract recipes for a pilsner (Saphir Pils) calls for 2# DME for 60 min. then
    3# DME for 10 min. Why would you wait so long to add most of the DME? I thought the whole idea
    of the boi...

  • Posted in thread: Stupid question about dip tubes on 02-12-2016 at 05:52 PM
    So if you use a dip tube in your BK, then when you run out your wort, once the level gets below
    the ball valve (or maybe before that, I guess) you are basically siphoning. I saw a DIY dip
    tube out of ...

  • Posted in thread: Anybody use WL 530 Abbey Ale? on 02-11-2016 at 03:28 PM
    Thanks for the reply. No, I didn't think to take a gravity reading, but that is a good
    suggestion for next time. What FG would I expect for full ferment?

  • Posted in thread: Anybody use WL 530 Abbey Ale? on 02-08-2016 at 05:08 PM
    I had bad luck (or operator error) with this stuff. Details below but I couldn't get it to take
    off in a starter. Has anyone had experience with this stuff and is this characteristic? Is it
    possible I...

  • Posted in thread: need a bigger boil kettle - keg vs. new pot? on 01-21-2016 at 11:11 PM
    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...
