  • I have been brewing since the great Home Brew Wave struck New England back in the early '90s. It was on-again-off-again for a long while being an apartment dweller. But now that I am married, I have a garage to use. Just recently, I put enough pieces of stainless together to make a small AG brew system which I am trying to use every two weeks until my first baby comes along in late December.
  • Old world ales and small beers interest me.
    I've never taken a gravity reading that I trust.

    Alright. Cool. I am not alone in this then!Thanks for the input.I seem to always overshoot the
    strike water temp, so I will keep a pot of cool water on hand at the ready from now on.One last
    thing, an...

    I brewed up my first lager earlier this summer and it is now, finally, ready for drinking.I was
    a bit disappointed to find that is a bit sweeter than I would like, or would expect, for a
    lager. Being ...

    That is a great idea!I have a platform I threw together out of some scrap wood and I am not all
    that happy with it.It works, but takes up way too much room for storage.Can you show me the
    bottom of th...

    I'm in tampa so I will be paying a lit of attention to this thread. I have three sankes do you
    think this is feasible for sanke use?Absolutely. I believe that the sanke path is surest.Trying
    this in 5...

    Thanks for the info.I think I have a bum Corny for doing pressurized ferments in. It doesn't
    seem to seal properly.That one may be sold back to my LHBS.

    I would think not.It probably wouldn't hurt to lay a blanket of CO2 on top of the wort, but if
    your yeast get to work in a hurry, I wouldn't think it would be all that necessary.

    CS223,I have my first pressurized ferment going (I think), but I am not seeing any pressure
    reading on the gauge. I am using a two-keg setup with a quart of boiled water in the bottom of
    the "blow-off...

    I have my first pressurized fermentation under way!Can't wait to get home tonight to see if
    there is actually any pressure building in there.

  • Posted in thread: CO2 Charger for Racking? on 06-27-2012 at 02:43 PM
    Thanks for the input, folks.I was hoping that you could just squeeze a bit of gas at a time
    from the charger and this seems to be the case.If worse comes to worst, I will grab the CO2
    tank and regulat...
