I have a 60L and 120L and I absolutely love them both! I can't believe I was even thinking of
buying a stainless conical fermenter at one point. I have been alternating between 20 and 12

My Schwarbier was pitched at 50 degrees and stayed cold for a few weeks. Unfortunately it
stalled out at 1.020 (OG 1.051). I hoped that bringing the carboy to room temp would finish it
out and complet...
Posted in thread: Issues with first lager fermentation on 06-26-2015 at 04:39 PM
After buying a chest freezer and controller I decided to brew 10 gallons of Schwarzbier.
Brewday went well and I pitched at 50 degrees per Jamil's book. I had to go out of town for 10
days and when I ...

Thanks guys. As usual I was analyzing a dozen or more recipes and trying to combine elements of
the better ones. I wasn't thinking about the overall % of roasted malt which is where I
definitely went ...

(cross-posted to the AHA forum)I decided to brew up 12 gallons of a CDA/Black IPA. One of my
favorite breweries had posted this on their Facebook page when I inquired about one of my
favorite dark hop...

My ASD is also on 1 but I dont notice it cycling a lot, certainly not every minute. I had
planned on lagering with the probe inside of liquid. Hope that isn't a bad thing.

I am wondering the same thing! Mine is in a chest freezer set to 38 degrees. I find it odd that
most times I look at the controller it is reading WAY below 38. I would expect it to ride up

Is the 135 tube also 1/2" or 3/8"? I'm going to place an order for these parts at

Yeah, they are now. When I got these, they were about $45. If I was to do it over today, I
would still buy them just in the non-stainless for about 25 bucks. They are soo quiet, it made
my brew day mu...
