    I've got a 20 gallon stainless steel boil kettle which I installed a 5500w element into. The
    bottom of it looks to be starting to pit. There a little rust spots forming about the size of a
    pen head in...

    I was thumbing through it yesterday, and I finally found a little know beer flaw that I saw in
    a few of my beers - HORSERADISH flavors.Well, I found a mention of this in the book, and like a
    dummy, fo...

    For me, there is no sampling during fermentation. I have bought a chest freezer and put
    temperature controls on it, added a thermo-well to my fermentors and have a separate control
    for a firm-wrap so ...

    Yeah, I did the mash out. I just my notes and forgot about a few things that happened. When I
    did the protein rest, it rose to 132 for about 5 minutes while the ice that I added cooled it
    back to 120....

    I've tried everything to get the wife to drink some of my home brew - heck, trying to get her
    to try beer in general, and have FAILED miserably. I've tried getting her to try everything
    from a chocola...

    So I am trying to improve my beers by watching the fermentations like a hawk, and wanted to
    know if anyone saw any issues with my sampling methods.I ferment in glass carboys. I have one
    of those turke...

    So I guess over attenuation is better than it's counter part, but the FG on this brew was
    supposed to be 1.011. After 4 days using US-05 and a targeted mash temp of 153, it went from a
    SG of 1.041 to ...

    I am using this for my 1st ever fruit beer. recommend 10 pounds of strawberries for a 5g
    batch? Seems like a bit overkill if you asked me...but then again..I've never brewed with
    strawberries so wha...

  • Posted in thread: Strawberries on 05-14-2014 at 12:43 PM
    I had another thought on the beer. After you ferment, couldn't you just boil the beer again and
    rack to a secondary with the strawberries...or just put the beer and your berries in the boil
    kettle. I ...
