  • Posted in thread: Hops in Hop Sock on 05-26-2010 at 11:29 PM
    Need help, built a hop sock hanger for the brew kettle, I read a long time ago on some web that
    you need to increase the amount of hops when using this set up. How much more of the hops

    boil vol...

    I collected 5g in the fermentor. The LHBS that I bought the grain from, crushed it for me, do

    everything seemed to go OK. Hit my mash temp of 152, lost 1.3 degrees in 60 minutes. First
    runnings was ...

  • Posted in thread: Keggle Dip Tube? on 05-25-2009 at 01:36 PM
    Thanks for the info, I wonder if you attach a screen (like a bazooka ) to the end of the tube
