@DarwinI control my temps with a digitally controlled deep freezer. The probe is taped directly
to the carboy. I have never noticed any issues with it not nailing temps. @Manifesto I am aware
of this ...

4L the next ...

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong??I recently started to brew lagers. My third one is
lagering as I type this. All three have tasted very buttery after primary fermentation and I
can't figure o...

Everyone, We as homebrewers need to band together and contribute all our knowledge on

the headquarters for Gulfstream Aerospace. If you are lucky, you'll see a prototype G650 or two

I can't comment on 1968, but i have brewed several batches with this 1768 yeast. It is
wonderful. I can't imagine anything flocculating less: it looks like cottage cheese in my
starter. This strain is...
Posted in thread: Does this seem like a lot of gypsum? on 08-10-2011 at 06:12 PM
Just dug into water chemistry a bit to try to improve my less than stellar ordinary bitters. I
used the nemograph in the back of Palmer's book to arrive at the need to add 3.5 to 5 tsp of
gypsum to 5 ...
