  • Posted in thread: Can aphids affect overall bitterness of homegrown hops? on 01-20-2015 at 12:59 AM
    Question to the masses. I've got a three year old chinook plant, and a two year old cascade.
    They produced a veritable crapload of hops this year...but along with the crop came TONS of
    aphids. It look...

  • Posted in thread: Strange yeast behavior. Is US-05 getting weird on you? on 01-20-2015 at 12:42 AM
    I'll chime in too...maybe it's coincidence, maybe not. As I type I'm sipping an IPA I fermented
    with US-05 in November. It took two days for fermentation to begin, and another 8 for it to
    complete (at...

    just pulled the empty US-05 packet from the trash. i'm assuming the bottom line of numbers is
    the expiration date...04...2015. the top line reads 87384...120...0704.

    hooray for live yeasties. 18 hours post-pitch in the porter and there was the slightest layer
    of krausen. now 24 hours in, a solid 1/2 inch layer and plenty of bubbles in the blow-off
    bucket. your ana...

    Glad to see this post this morning cause I just started wondering the same thing. I sprinkled
    DRY for the last couple years, aerated with a venturi tube, and didn't really bother
    controlling the ferme...

    acafro, forgive me for being thick...i'm not an electrician (nor do i play one on TV), but if
    the STC-1000 is, in fact, only rated to 10 amps, and a 16GA extension cord to 13 amps, wouldn't
    the OP be ...

    Just built mine, and used 16GA throughout. According to the label on my chest freezer, it only
    draws 5 amps, so I figure 16GA ought to cover it. Haven't actually tested it with a full load
    yet though....

    i just brewed a bourbon barrel porter recipe from northern brewer...fermented in the primary

    bourbon and let i...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary stratification w/ a bourbon barrel porter? on 04-11-2013 at 04:06 PM
    Hey Yoop, how much would the 16 oz of bourbon alter the FG? I'm guessing I should have taken a
    reading on the porter BEFORE adding the bourbon, but I neglected to do so.
