    Another possibility: Take a look at your bottling bucket spout. I had the same thing after my
    first 5 or 6 batches & found mold growing inside the spout. Replaced the spout & all plastic
    tubing. I now...

    Just bottled a batch of Tasty Tucker (house IPA.) Hops/grain measured out to boil another batch
    in the am. . .Man, I Luv IPA.

    No one mentioned - they still have simcoe pellets. 2 bucks an ounce & qualifies
    for free ship program (orders over $39 are free ship this month.)Cheers!

    Uh. . . you might want to get a blow-off tube on there asap and set the whole rig in a big tub.
    Otherwise you may come home to find the airlock sticking out of the ceiling. ;)As far as

  • Posted in thread: racking onto a yeast cake on 02-13-2011 at 03:28 PM
    FYI, this was discussed last week in the yeast forum. Someone posted this link discussing why
    it's a bad idea: jist of the read is: pitching on a cake is massive over-pitching and also
    skips the fir...

    Most common cause is uneven mixing. Even though you "swirl" when racking onto the priming

    +1 Mbasile. To that I'd add: Careful with the C40. It creeps up quickly in an american IPA. For

    Mongrel - that's elegant. Nice!Nick (OP) - Hang in there, the agressive part of the ferment
    won't last much longer. Damages control until then - just leave the lid loose and set the whole
    thing in the...

  • Posted in thread: Help please, any Aurora, CO all grain brewers? on 02-08-2011 at 12:30 PM
    Stop by The Brew Hut (15120 E. Hampden Ave) and ask about the closest brew club. The Brew Hut
    sponsors a local wine club but I bet they can steer you to the brewers in Aurora as well.
