Posted in thread: Adding Minerals to Tap/Ro water on 05-31-2015 at 02:11 PM
there are programs out there like bru'n water that will help you build up water. Building from
RO is much easier than from tap. Think of RO as a blank canvas you can do whatever you want
Posted in thread: Feeding Brett/Lacto with sugar or syrup on 05-31-2015 at 11:27 AM
I would imagine you will get a small amount of funk. Probably not much tartness but maybe a
little. I really like those beers that just have a hint of tart/funk to them but have a really
hard time mak...

If you are alright waiting a little longer, then pedio might be a better idea than lacto. Lacto

Not sure where in NJ you are, but there's a small group of us who have started a club in bergen

would throw some ser...

Good advice above. If you see bubbles coming off the stone, and none getting to the surface,
then that is perfect because the 02 is dissolving into solution. If you get bubbles to the
surface, then yo...
Posted in thread: 50L nano-brewery set up under a pub on 05-10-2015 at 01:29 PM
50L is tiny. Is it worth time/effort/money/legalities to brew a keg of beer at a time? I

I always cold crash, feel pouring 2-5 liters of "starter beer" into my brews cannot be doing

60/40 or 50/50 blend of wheat/2-row? Seems like that, and maybe some simple steeping grains
