  • Posted in thread: Show us your DIY stir plate! on 11-14-2014 at 07:19 PM
    I wanted the power brick to fit inside the box to be all self-contained, but the fan was too
    big. What to do?I bolted the fan to a piece of poplar wood that slides snugly back and forth.
    So it can sli...

    There should be a big difference in aging at 35 vs 70. At 35 you would have substantially
    slowed any processes that are helping in age the beer.I should qualify what I’m thinking
    on this; to one...

    I’m still working on the “craggy” head thing. That’s what I call this.
    there is a better, or more recognized, name for this phenomenon? I see the word
    “krausen” as...

  • Posted in thread: 1 year out of date grain? on 09-06-2012 at 06:57 PM
    As an experiment, (that’s what I call it now – but I was just perpetually lazy), I left a bag
    of grain that was already crushed from the shop, hops, and a packet of 05 in the bottom of the
    garage frid...

    I hear that, but if I buy any more kit in the near future, I will raise the ire of the home
    goddess (i.e. my wife) and SHE will severely punish my for my disobedience (and not in a good
    way) ;)What yo...

    60% of my brewclub does BIAB.At least 40% of my old brewclub did BIAB.A good 30-40% of this
    forum does BIAB.You may be dead Grape Nuts correct, but I question your use of “does”/”did”.Or

    Nylon bag? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. That cost money boy. All we need is a 2 cen’ balloon.
    jest. BIAB is of course totally valid, nifty even, and I see zero reason why it can’t

    I handled this exact situation thus: I demoted the 5gal mash tun to my hot liquor tank. I
    purchased a 10gal mash tun.If you’re doing anything else, you’re cheating the
    must-buy-more-equipment homebrew...

    I’ve seen this.I have a standard orange Rubbermaid 10gal mash tun with a SS false bottom.
    The thing is, if you take a temp, say with a digital thermometer, just after dough-in and a

  • Posted in thread: How long do you sparge? on 09-05-2012 at 01:07 AM
    I used to batch sparge, but now I fly the helicopter for an hour.5 and drink beer. (It’s
    old, and sounds rather like the windmill in the opening scene of the movie, Once Upon A Time in
    the West ...
