  • Posted in thread: High final gravity, possible bottle bomb issue on 06-18-2012 at 11:38 PM
    Hey All,I just finished a brown ale Brewhouse kit I was given. Original FG was 1.050 (or
    possibly 1.058, for some reason I thought it was higher than 1.050) pitched May 19th. Wrote it
    down in my log b...

  • Posted in thread: Prepping bottles for my first batch!!!!! on 01-11-2011 at 05:08 PM
    I've tried a couple of different methods, and this is what I've settled on.-24H soak in
    oxiclean and warm water. Scrub any new bottles with a scotchbrite pad to remove any left over

    come visit us brewers in the great white north. It's winter hear half the year. I brewed a
    batch of all grain in my garage 2 weekends ago. -21*C. Not a lot of fun, but that was the only
    weekend I coul...

    Mash Tun. Water is heated to ~155*F then crushed grains are added (doughing in), stirred, and
    left to sit for about an hour to convert starches into fermentable sugars. Used primarily for
    all grain br...

    Hi All,Thought I'd share some excerpts from my wonderful brew day yesterday, see if anyone gets

  • Posted in thread: Ribcage IC with Ice Water Recirculation System - Cheap on 11-25-2010 at 08:37 PM
    I love my ribcage chiller... It does a great job. I suspect the biggest advantage over a normal
    coil is the ability of the wort to circulate through the chiller with almost no resistance. I
    stir the h...

  • Posted in thread: Temperature control for 30g conicals? on 11-25-2010 at 08:10 PM
    I'd say your two options are a heat controlled room build, or a water jacket. Easiest: Room
    build. Window AC unit and small heater. Two stage temp controller.Smallest footprint: Water
    jacket. Wrap 3/8...

  • Posted in thread: Okanagan Spring 1516 on 11-23-2010 at 10:48 PM
    I was wondering if anyone had an idea for a clone of Okanagan Spring 1516. This is a Canadian
    beer, and one of my favorites. The main marketing for it is that it complies with the bavarian
    purity laws...

    I've got a batch of Rolf's Irish Red Ale happily bubbling away in my fermentation chamber. I
    pitched notty on Sunday, and am holding the temp at 18*C (65*F). I usually ignore a new batch
    for a solid 3...

    have one of these things, and it works really well. Same concept, better pump. Cheap to buy.
    I use it for lots of stuff.
