    I bought a cheap block and tackle 7 pulley system on Amazon and just measured it from the
    bottom of the hook to my floor. It is 6'9" and I use Brewhas cables to connect to my mash tun.
    I don't have an...

    Give the 2007 a try. I describe it as a drier finish, but crisp is an accurate description as
    well. Technically this was German yeast at one point?

    have modified the grain bill slightly and now use8# German Pilsner1.5 # German Munich.25#
    MelanoidenI like a drier finish and that is why I use the 2007 yeast.

    I haven't brewed any 5 gal batches on my medium, but I measured it when I first got it and the
    element is covered by about 1/4 - 1/2 inch right at 5 gals. With the expansion from heat and
    the extra yo...

  • Posted in thread: The perfect lager on 10-13-2015 at 05:21 PM
    I clicked on Gavin's link and I found that his grain bill is very similar to my favorite lager
    that I modeled after North Coast Brewing's Scrimshaw. After several iterations here is what I
    ended up wi...

    In my experience it depends on the strain. I would normally get to 80% on a beer around 1.055
    in 5-6 days and it would finish in 2-3 more. I just made an Octoberfest at 1.054 and it took
    almost 8 days...

    I meant to add to my previous post that this is what I use to pull the mash colander out of the
    unit: to be an inexpensive alternative that I just attached to one of my floor joists and have
    not had ...

    I just use the idea behind the foam stoppers for yeast starters for the cooling stages. My mom
    gave me some foam that she buys at fabric stores that appears to be the same as those you buy
    from midwes...

  • Posted in thread: Newbie 90 Min IPA recipe questions: on 02-25-2015 at 11:18 PM
    This recipe is as close as I've found. I've made it 4 times and everyone loves it. I don't have
    time right now to convert it to extract. I've bought the Thomas Fawcett at a store in Maryland
    and found...

    Nathan's customer service has been outstanding to say the least. I have bombarded him with
    emails both before and after my purchase and he always responds very quickly and answers all of
    my questions ...
