Posted in thread: Increase Wort Chilling Efficiency on 10-31-2013 at 08:16 AM
Has anyone ever tried using a drill and one of those aerating drill bits to create a whirlpool

Posted in thread: What are your top 5 fruits to rack onto? on 08-28-2013 at 11:18 PM
I'm planning on brewing up 5 gallons of a wheat (I really like SN Old Chico so probably a clone
of that). Ferment it together but then split the batch into fifths and rack into 1 gallon jugs
Posted in thread: Why do people like foam so much? on 08-23-2013 at 07:39 PM
The more I learn about homebrew the more I see people consistently saying the more foam the
better. Even Dr. Bamforth professor of beer science at UC Davis says to always pour into the

have. SWMBO recently got me one as a present but I've only found it useful to take OG. After
Posted in thread: Do I HAVE to use a steeping bag? on 11-09-2012 at 07:23 PM

Posted in thread: Do I HAVE to use a steeping bag? on 11-09-2012 at 06:51 PM
I brewed up an IPA (extract + steeping grains) the other day and realized a bit too late that
my steeping bag was barely too small to fit all my grains. I ended up just dumping them all
