Posted in thread: Sanity check my multi-hop experiment? on 01-18-2014 at 06:19 AM
I did a similar thing a few months ago, but I fermented it in a single batch, then split into 5
1-gallon containers to secondary and dry hop. Not too much work and still got the result I
wanted. I'm c...

I like this one a lot: cheaper than thermapen, and the only thing you lose is a tiny bit (like
0.2F for the normal temp range you would use in brewing) accuracy, and it is a few seconds
slower. And t...
Posted in thread: how to cultivate my own yeasts on 12-26-2013 at 06:15 PM

What style of beer is it? Extract or all grain? I might just throw in my flavor/aroma hops now
and be done. It would be less bitter than with a full 60 min boil, but shouldn't suffer any
other ill eff...
Posted in thread: Using mash PID to recirculate on 10-27-2013 at 04:08 PM
This should be simple. Most PIDs have a built in relay that can switch a few amps, so you would
only need to add the 3 way switch.However, why do it this way? Why not do it the Kal way and
set your HL...
