    Yup, what they said. This is normal behavior if you keep the tank in the fridge.

  • Posted in thread: Immersion Chiller - brass fittings or hose clamps? on 12-21-2010 at 04:37 AM
    I'll tell you that the main reason I chose compression fittings is because my buddy's immersion
    chiller sprung a leak into our wart last time we brewed. The LHBS rep dismissed this as a
    "loose hose cl...

    Gas has to stay on the whole time. As it slowly carbonates, CO2 will continually come out of
    the tank to keep the headspace pressurized and replace the CO2 that went into solution.

    If you ever feel a need to ask "is it a scam?", then the answer is pretty much always yes. Stay
    away from those tickets.

  • Posted in thread: What causes "hotness"? on 12-05-2010 at 04:44 AM
    Just wait. An alcohol hotness is normally a sign of a higher alcohol beer that's too young
    still. 6.7% is a decently big IPA. When was it brewed? My guess it needs a little more aging

  • Posted in thread: Is PBW a sanitizer or just a "cleanser?" on 10-26-2010 at 03:02 AM
    Definitely a cleaner only, you will still need to sanitize the keg. Don't forget to push some
    through both posts to santize dip tube, gas tube, poppet valves, etc.

    Bobby_M's point was that the info printed in BYO is wrong. They said "2-3 days" and "about a
    week". Both are wrong.

    As I said, just do the AAU calculation to adjust the amounts, BeerSmith will probably even do
    it for you but I've never used BeerSmith so I can't say for sure. I know BeerAlchemy (which I
    use) will do...

    In general, if you're trying to follow the recipe as close as possible and need to substitute
    hops, yes you want to tweak the amount based on the AA% of the hops you are substituting and
    the AA% calle...

    I use a bag for leaf hops, not sure if the mesh is fine enough for pellets or not, I haven't
    tried it yet. It looks like it would be fine enough though.
