    I think there are 3 things that could happen: algae/mold/bacteria growth: Might impart flavor,
    not that big a deal preboil.Plastic/BPA over time can impart the water for a plastic
    flavor.Depending on ...

    Why did the British Navy carry small beer on board its vessels?Yes, water can go bad. Life is
    amazingly tennacious. Give it a carbon source (CO2 in the air), energy (heat) and a seed
    (spore) and it wi...

    I acknowledge this is probably a completely stupid question but my home brewer paranoia is
    kicking in. I use RO water I buy from a water store in sealed 5 gallons container. Fill your
    own jugs kind of...

    I would have let it sit longer, but my buddy's wedding is in three weeks and I want the bottles
    to carb in time. I actually had the same problem with low temps in the winter, it was
    definitely too chi...

    I brewed a batch of this back in September and just bottled it today. It is phenomenal! One of
    the best beers I have ever made. I made it for my buddy's wedding, so hopefully he will enjoy
    it as much ...

    I really didn't play much with the return valve once I got the flow set right for the wort not
    going down the overflow. I think it's a bit of a balancing act to set the valve. My main goal
    was no over...

    I should add that for a 90 min mash I have not had one drop of wort down the overflow. I'm

    spots, but close...

    Hey guys just wanted to post a follow up with my results, or lack thereof, when trying to get a
    replacement controller on my GF. I've called, emailed, and contacted GF through Facebook
    numerous times ...

    My plan is to brew by the steps going outside with fan on steps (about 3-4' off ground)
    directed towards the door. If it doesn't pull enough I will rig up a vent that is rigid yet
    moveable or possibly...

    Thanks, I hope so, had to do a little bit of work down there. House is ~100yo with basement
    height at 7' max leading to a space, no brew pub!:( It's in a corner with a (covered) sump pump
    below. I've ...
