    ABOUT ME

  • I've been brewing since roughly '91, though I took a 10 year break that ended in '13. I started out with concentrated boil extract recipes, moved to full-boil extract, and then a basic 5 gallon all-grain with a jacketed MT. When I got back into this I upgraded to a 15 gallon, direct fired, system.

    1. It depends on how it handles heat... I suspect it'd be fine, but you won't know until you
    try. If you cut the top off, fill it with 170F water, and it doesn't warp, you're probably
    fine. There is a...

    I remember when this was my first computer: addition to the cartridge slot, I had a tape drive
    I could load games from. I'd fire it up, go have dinner, and come back and play frogger, lolI

    Plenty of debate on the internet already about food grade plastics. You are correct, not a lot
    of fact besides some testimony of calling the manufacturer directly. I haven't seen any
    official studies ...

    I don't think you can go wrong with either the Chugger or a March for 10g batches. As to hoses:
    I really think you'll want/need some form of connector, even if not cam locks. I suppose you
    could, in t...

    I got that 'cat piss' thing going in my ZD batch too. It wasn't too bad, but was definitely
    there. When you first pour it into the glass the aroma is amazing, all tropical fruit...but
    after about 5 mi...

    Any aquarium guys out there? My brain has been trying to smash this idea together with that of
    a fluidized bed reactor for some time now. I've worked out (and thrown out) a dozen concepts,
    but I keep ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast Starter-Need Advice! on 04-04-2014 at 04:14 AM
    If it were me... I'd make my starter 24 hours before I had to leave. I'd stick it in a fridge
    to crash when I left, and when I started my brew day I'd pull it back out to warm up. Right
    before I pitch...

    Actually, no, you shouldn't be able to thread a nut from one end to the other.Most plumbing
    fittings in common usage in the US are NPT threads. Chances are the ball valves you're using
    are 1/2" NPT. N...

    It took a lot longer to teach my daughter #2 than #1. My good friend's son is the same way. For
    some reason, #2 is much more difficult, but don't worry, you'll get it.
