    I'm cheap. I picked up a garage sale 2 gallon cooler for a couple bucks. I then steal the ball
    valve and braided hose from the 10 gallon cooler for test batches.I fly sparge using a gravity
    setup in t...

    It will be beer. It may be good or bad. Time will tell.

    I use wlp299 for IPA's. In my opinion it is a brings a nice peach aroma to the party. It seems
    to knock out some off the bittering and does not floc quite as well as wlp001.Fermentation
    temps can go t...

    Unless your brew is releasing rhino farts, the smell, or should I say aroma, is not that bad.
    Now the constant bubbling of a blow off tube during active fermentation could drive someone
    crazy, if in t...

    There are many reasons for a stuck sparge. Overly milled grain, lots of wheat or rye come to
    mind. You can add rice hulls for insurance.

    My boss is Carl from Slingblade who takes over all projects when they get interesting.

  • Posted in thread: Hop stand on 05-02-2013 at 01:18 AM
    I've done two IPA's with 3 oz of hops steaping at 170 for 30 minutes and the result was great.
    I will continue to do hops stands for all my IPA / IIPA 's. Both were new recipes so I can't
    compare to n...

  • Posted in thread: can i clean my keg with star-san? on 04-25-2013 at 06:21 AM
    I clean everything then sanitize. A brand new keg may have oils or other stuff which needs to
    be removed.

  • Posted in thread: Any way to speed up the brew day? on 04-23-2013 at 02:56 AM
    While more than half way through fly sparging, turn the heat on low under the brew kettle. If
    you time it right your kettle will come to a boil as the last of the sparge is done. That saves
    me time an...
