  • My brother bought me an extract kit in 2004. Did 10 extract batches, then almost all the rest were all grain. I'm around batch #70 now. I have a gravity system made of wood with 1 pump. I am a batch sparger.
  • I'm not a Belgian, or a sour beer fan. I brew a good pale ale that I try to get close to Mirror Pond. I am trying to nail down a good house brown, IPA and stout that I will keep on tap per season.

  • Posted in thread: Tap caps or plugs? on 10-21-2016 at 05:51 AM
    I use both. I think they're equally good. I think the caps are easier, and I go to those more.
    But the brush ones are nice to. I think I got a little more worried about keeping the brushes
    clean. But,...

    I'm casting my vote for Williams Brewing. They're fast, and reliable. I have a lhbs, but for
    the unusual, harder to get stuff, I look here first. I also use Morebeer, but in the past it's
    been frustra...

    If in doubt, make a starter. 1.083 is pretty big. You want healthy yeast for that. If it was me
    and the wort was in a lower range like 1.055-1.065 on a 1 gallon batch, I'd just go for it and
    pitch. Bu...

    Your yeast will be good. Your idea of mixing the beers is a good idea. Having said that, the
    first batch may be good on its own. Sometimes it's good to have a lower abv beer. It may be out
    of balance ...

  • Posted in thread: New conical, trub & yeast first time on 10-14-2016 at 01:44 PM
    I bought a 7 gal Chronical Fermenter from SS Brewtech. First question is about when to dump the
    trub? I have a stout fermenting, and will be at 1 week on Sunday. It's definitely slowing down.
    At 1 wee...

    +1 on using 2 beans. Don't go by ounces with vanilla beans. You'll be surprised by how good 2
    beans will be.

    i have a chest freezer that i bought to use as keezer, but now that the fridge is available i'd
    prefer to use the freezer for fermentation and the fridge for kegerating.I would do this other
    way aroun...

  • Posted in thread: SS Chronical leg extensions for standard 7 gallon chronical not that secure on 10-10-2016 at 08:02 PM
    I'm interested in what they say. I just put my first batch in one yesterday. Am thinking about
    the legs to make transferring to a keg easier. Perhaps the shelf that goes on the bottom would
    add more s...
