  • I've been brewing for a few years and am always seeking to try new things and perfect what I know. I enjoy making beer and like when my family and friends enjoy it too. I'm in the Milwaukee, WI area.

    recently into flying R/C

  • My neighbor up north started brewing a few years ago. He got really good at it and has then launched his own nano brewery. I don't aspire to do anything that adventurous, but enjoy brewing for myself and sharing with friends. I dove in with both feet, starting with two fermenters and an immersion chiller as well as all the fixins. The same neighbor helped my get my keezer set up to have a two tapper system which I converted to corny kegs right away when i started brewing... Like I said I jumped in with both feet. rnrnI now have 5 fermenters and have added a third tapper to my keezer as it will fit 3 cornies.rnrnI've just recently moved into all grain and am starting to build my ebrewery so i can move everything indoors.
  • Eventually I want to do a number of stouts and get a nitrogen set up.

    I use my temp controlled chest freezer fermenter to cold crash after fermentation is done. I
    made a 6.8abv brown ale and in the midst of taking another fermenter out so I could cold crash,
    didn't see ...

    I had the same thing... It was weird cause it was only certain yeasts... Hefe yeast in
    particular. After several batches, changing one component at a time, I narrowed it my tap
    water. Made sure to use...

    Answers... No, minimal, and yes. You'll be fine. That strong of a fermentation created 100% CO2
    environment inside your fermenter. Clean up the mess and keep your fermenter closed and all is
    well. Hap...

    Thanks for helping to clarify. I am pretty happy with the stout. It was my 2nd time making a
    stout and was the first time I have ever made a milk stout and first time working with cocoa
    nibs and vanil...

    32.5 in ca...

    I've pitched as high as 80, Fermented at about 70 (ambient), aerated about the same, and
    pitched same amount of yeast. I've slowly increased pitch and ferment temps every time.

    ^^^ what he said. My 5500 will hold a boil when set as low as 65% on manual mode with my PID. I
    use it at 75% and get a strong rolling boil even with 13 gallons in the keggle. Besides double
    the holes...
