  • 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.

    You really risk oxidizing (and hence ruining) the beer that way. Careful racking is generally
    the best way to avoid "stuff" in the bottling bucket, but cold crashing a few days before
    racking can help...

    What yeast did you use?

    I have my temp probe between some foam insulation and my fermenter. My stc1000 reads 17.1, but
    the thermometer on the carboy reads 66F. How do I change the stc to read 18.8?Sent from my iPad

    I also wonder if it's your hoses. New hoses can be plasticky for a few pours, but will go away.
    Also if your kegs are not new, you may need to replace the rubber rings and perhaps the
    poppets. I would...

    Was there any carbonation to the beer? A week is pretty short for carbonation, especially in
    the winter. What is the temperature where you are conditioning your beer? If it's sweet and has

    I've used 1056. I like it. It'll clear with time. Besides, it's homebrew. I've never used
    gelatin. But I do have some on hand. Nice new brewery you've built. I've been following for a
    while. Congrats!

    It's just settling. Don't worry.

    Thomas Fawcet Pale Malt, Rahr 2 Row and Marris Otter are 3 that I've bought. Join a Homebrew

    I've used cascade in some American style stouts. It's good. I'm brewing a stout Sunday with
    them. I agree with the above suggestions and personally I would drop the flakes wheat. Don't
    add too many sp...

  • Posted in thread: Blood Orange Honey Saison on 01-05-2014 at 03:49 PM
    I've added honey in pale ales. I don't know the technical terms, but basically honey is a
    pretty sterile environment. No need to pasteurize it. I have added it to flame out, or very
    late in the boil. ...
