    Hey Montana, does it work to keep the HLT temp close to your mash temp so the pump will run
    pretty much the whole time? In the video I saw he had the HLT tank at about 180 and was mashing
    at 150. The ...

    I have a Stout 14.5 gallon conical and love it. A lot of people will complain about how there
    is more to clean or the beer doesn't get better because of one. I think that my main reason for
    loving it ...

  • Posted in thread: Do you take the temp of your starter? on 08-07-2012 at 05:03 PM

    completely. I chill m...

    Just bottled both batches today. That took a while hah.Anyways, am I good with throwing in some
    carapils to get a little bit more body in the beer? It seemed like it needed more of a mouth

    Don't think its against the law to buy a case of beer and you don't like it or something then
    sell it to a friend or neighbor. Just like its not against the law to have a cover charge on a
    party with ...

    Luckily I just bought a rubber mallet! How fortunate. I am using the wyeast Kolsch liquid
    strain.I have 4 of the larger smack packs, and was not planning to make a starter, probably too
    late to do so ...

    With my conical I usually have to take a rubber mallet to the cone walls to get the yeast from
    clinging. (Of course not banging on it to hard!) I let it settle and then drain until I see
    beer come out...
