    I just fermented a pale ale that I brewed 6 days ago. I did a 1000mL starter, pitched at 67F,
    and fermented in my basement, which is mid-60s ambient. It began fermenting within a few hours
    at what I w...

    Mine is not unstable at all. I've never had an issue with it wanting to tip, even with garden
    hoses and wort lines hanging off it. In fact, after back flushing, cleaning, and disconnecting
    everything,...

    I wonder if it may be a problem with tannins. You should check the pH of your mash and make
    sure it's between 5.2-5.6. Any higher than that and it could give you problems, one of them
    being extra tann...

    If you're pitching more yeast, any oxygen you introduce into the beer will be taken up by the
    yeast before it gets busy fermenting. I know people who re-oxygenate big beers (barley wine,
    etc.) mid-fer...

    I already had the wand before I went to the pump/plate chiller setup, so I just repurposed it.
    It works better for how I have it put together than one attached to 1/2" NPT. I have it on a
    camlock QD a...

    You know what, I just thought that the oxy stone was a kit from Williams Brewing that was a
    stone on the end of a stainless wand long enough to reach the bottom of a carboy. I cut the
    wand to about 4"...

    It's funny, after having posted this thread in 2013, I took a break from homebrewing because of
    time constraints. Now that I'm back, it looks like I got something started. That's pretty cool!
    I know i...

    I brew basically once a week. I wash my MLT and kettle (both Bayou Classic pots) with dish
    soap, water, and a scrubber sponge after every brew. I then back-flush my plate chiller with
    6-7 gallons of c...

    I mash in what used to be my boil kettle to which I added a false bottom and
    recirculation/sparge arm (Bobby's Locline model). I currently use direct fire to heat strike
    water in it and to manually ma...

    do you have a drawing or schematic on what you built or was this eyeballed? I'd like to do
    something similar with my pump and plate chiller.I drew up my own plans from the spec'd
    dimensions of the pum...
