    in before the lock....As an aside, their KS page is long on bomb clearing, short on brewing. Is
    the idea that I'd give money because they were in the military?You're probably right that the

    My son is recently out of the army where he was a bomb squad guy disarming bombs at home and
    away. He and a couple of bomb squad friends are starting a nano brewery in Hayden Idaho. He's
    got an intere...

    Is it going to be 10% abv and 10 oz of centennials?I like the way you think but it should come
    in around 7% ABV and will have about 6 ounces of hops. I can't believe I didn't think of
    that..........

    We started brewing nearly three years ago and HBT was the source of much of my research and
    learning. Thanks to all of you for the advice, the recipes, and encouragement. Tonight we brew
    our 100th bat...

  • Posted in thread: How do you ensure a keg is sealed? on 01-10-2012 at 06:58 PM
    I'm not really sure how you would go about getting a good seal if you're naturally carbonating
    in a keg. I force carb after kegging and will hit the keg with about 30psi to get the lid to
    seal tight. ...

    Give him nothing now except maybe some beer. Same goes for anyone else who drops out. If the
    day comes that the equipment is ever sold, then everyone gets a percentage of the proceeds.
    Otherwise, I wo...

  • Posted in thread: New yeast and hops - should I take these out of the trunk? on 08-24-2011 at 07:20 PM
    Problem is I'm going sailing tonight. Going to be a tricky evening taking care of my babies -
    all 100 billion of them apparently.Going sailing makes it easy. The first beer out of the
    cooler makes roo...

  • Posted in thread: wyeast 1968 in an APA? on 08-11-2011 at 07:25 PM
    We have probably brewed 50+ pale ales and ipa's with 1968. So to reiterate the above
    suggestions.- pitch plenty of healthy yeast- ferment low to prevent unwanted esters (I like
    65)- gradually ramp up ...

    Crash cooling your beer for 2 or 3 days down to around 32-35 degrees will do wonders to settle
    the hops to the bottom of the fermenter, making it relatively easy to siphon from above the
    hops.

  • Posted in thread: Opinions on Grain Mills? on 06-30-2011 at 06:49 PM
    Also pleased with our Barley Crusher. It's probably seen 1,000 pounds of grain and no problems
    yet. We use an 18V Dewalt drill but always on low speed.
