I wrote a 3 star review for the 10 gallon MegaPot saying that the stainless steel rusts easily,
and it may not be a pure an alloy as is claimed by the manufacturer. Surprise, they did not

Not that my anecdotal experience completely discounts what you are saying, my experience has
probably unique.No, no this is a valid point to make. I was thinking more about body than head

I think for such a high gravity beer, you won't need to worry about body or head retention. 5%
crystal would certainly be sufficient, or none at all. Your FG probably won't drop below 1.013,
so if tha...

Thanks. I guess the takeaway is that, it's really hard to estimate IBUs accurately for late
additions, but if you're consistent, you will get repeatable results.

So, say I toss in the hops at flameout, and start chilling. It takes about 30 minutes to get to
90F. How would I represent that in my beer smith recipe? Whirlpool addition for 15 min?

waiting for te...

I purchased some amylase enzyme yesterday from my LHBS put a teaspoon into each fermenter and
today the airlock is bubbling! Now I just need to keep an eye on the SG and make sure it
doesn't go too lo...

I just pulled the trigger on the ThermaPen! They are discontinuing British Racing Green, so I

also man, I just had a son as well, and Ive found that scaling down and doing 2.5-3 gallon
batches inside on the stovetop really makes things a ton easier.Congrats! I figured out a way
to fence off my...

Just saw this after I submitted. Too low would yield a more fermentable wort.I am dumb, peterj
is right. That would mean HIGHER mash temp. I had that backwards. So, likely I've been mashing
at 158F, w...
