    I've run into some financial and time constraints and need to offload my kegging equipment. So
    the following is available for pick up in northern virginia, 10 minutes off the 95/495/395

  • Posted in thread: What is the big deal about Belgian Beers? on 02-15-2011 at 04:01 PM
    A lot of history and craftsmanship goes into Belgian ales. There is a certain mystique to it,
    that probably creates more "hype" than appropriate. That said, everyone has different tastes.
    Don't fret, ...

    Some modern electrics will do it. I have a GE ceramic top infrared electric with a 12" diameter
    element. It will boil 8 gallons of wort without too much trouble. Never tried 10, but since
    I've got the...

    [QUOTE=the BTU for 1 degree up or down of either 1 pound of ice or 1 pound of water is the
    same. I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but that is incorrect. The heat capacity of ice is
    roughly half of ...

    will your freezer require more energy than it's already consuming daily to freeze some water
    bottles?Simple answer: Yes.If you place something warm (the water) in a space that is supposed
    to stay cold...

    Ice has a lot more heat capacity than 32F water due to the state change. I'm not educated
    enough to explain it but The Pol found someone to crunch the numbers and IIRC it took 40lbs of
    ice in a comple...

    It's a tall 7gal container I believe so it can fit my carboy brushes and canes and such.. I
    fill it over half way and throw in my bottles.. I start adding ice when my supply line starts
    becoming warm....

    Assuming no external losses (fluid to air), you will need to remove roughly 5,925 Btu's from
    the wort (8.345 lbs/gallon * 5 gallons * 142F temperature drop) to get from boiling to 70F.
    This is conserv...

    Why do people prefer to hook up to a external water source rather than using a cheap pond pump
    hooked to your coil in a bucket with ice or frozen 2ltr bottles like I do? I hear about people
    wanting to...

  • Posted in thread: Super Slow Start on Lager on 02-09-2011 at 02:51 PM
    A temperature change over 10F between wort and starter is generally discouraged. Your yeast
    may have spent some time protecting itself from the cold temperatures and is now starting to
    get around to ...
