Posted in thread: Stirplate with 5V computer fan and arduino on 01-19-2014 at 12:11 PM
Sure. Code at the bottom. The plate works fine. It is a little finicky, sometimes the stir bar
will just jump around so usually check on it twice a day or so when it is running and sometimes
have to s...
Posted in thread: Better Use For Spent Grains? on 07-27-2012 at 07:11 PM
Spent grain waffles. I literally just make waffle batter from the first recipe I find online
and add 2 cups of spent grain. It uses about even amounts of flour and spent grains. It makes
more waffles ...
Posted in thread: Fellow homebrewers, meet my new beer engine . . . on 06-08-2012 at 10:10 PM
Looks like it has been a little while for action on this thread. I have seen some negative
reviews for the rocket pump most people have used for their beer engines. Has anyone tried
this: doesn't loo...
Posted in thread: Anyone use mini-kegs or 1gallon kegs with a beer engine on 06-07-2012 at 08:57 PM
I've searched for info on this both on here and google and come up with a few leads, but most
of them a year or two old at least. I've only bottled in the past, but I recently went on a
trip to Scotla...

So is this stuff as bad as beer advocate says, or are they trashing it just because it isn't

interesting. It may be...

grew two cascade vines up the back of my deck of my townhouse. I read that you shouldn't expect
Posted in thread: Lion Red Clone? on 09-15-2011 at 05:00 PM
He kind of did. I have a little experience with NZ beers from visiting there. Lion Red was
drinkable, and not terrible, but I would also compare it to US macrobrews. Could be worse, he
could have aske...
Posted in thread: Brewer's Gold Hops on 09-15-2011 at 04:57 PM
I've never used them as whole hops before, but I have used brewer's gold pellets as the
bittering addition in a belgian tripel and a saison. I have heard they can give a black currant
like flavor and ...

That sounds like a delicious late summer/early fall beer. I'd definitely keep the willamette in
the mix. I've never worked with liberty, what kind of characteristics is it supposed to add?
Posted in thread: Good yeast for saison fermenting @ ~82f? on 08-27-2011 at 12:04 AM
I'm currently (literally right now) drinking a rye saison that I fermented at 85 with saison
dupont yeast. No bubblegum whatsoever, some pepper instead. In fact it is delicious. Mine was
an actual bot...
