    pure obsession ever since.

    if i could brew everyday of my life, i would die a happy man. something about the process that is so fulfilling.

    i like the fact that you can plan out a brew all you want on paper, but come brew day, you never know what will happen.

    Thanks for the feedback. That was my gut impression, but the more I read on the subject, the
    more confused I get. :mug:

  • Posted in thread: priming temp clarification on 07-16-2013 at 11:56 PM
    I am under the impression that you prime based on the highest temperature your fermentation
    bucket reaches. Say I have an ale that reached a peak of 70 F while fermenting in the basement,

    i am planning on doing a 5 gal batch of dunkelweizen, OG 1.055, this weekend. i am looking to
    mute the banana-like qualities and focus on the clove character. i already plan to ferment this
    one with w...

    degree HL. the...

    atom here anyway. probably wind up with a stuck sparge and have to use the batch for
    feritilizer. i dont...

    im doin a pumpkin ale this weekend and i am trying to figure out a grist/water ratio. I am
    using roughly 5 lbs canned pumpkin puree and 10 lbs grain for a 5.5 gallon batch. i prefer my
    mash on the thi...

    ive been using an 18" long, 3/4" diameter hose in a unique configuration born of frustration

    collapse and it...
