    don't commercial hefes usually filter and then add back a different yeast? I thought I heard
    that somewhere, I could be wrong...if that's the case then maybe you have a specific digestive
    problem with...

  • Posted in thread: Who here is happy with glass carboys? on 05-27-2009 at 05:55 PM
    I carry 'em full all of the time, using nothing more than the orange carboy handles and I
    carry them up and down stairs. Am I an idiot?? Probably. But i've been doing it for a few years
    now and I've ...

    As a practical matter...have you ever seen cremains (the ashes of a cremated person)? Not to be
    gross or anything but...there tend to be various-sized chunks of bone in there, and the ashes

    Even if the berries don't clog the tube you wouldn't want a bunch of them being shot into your

    I have that book. I think it's because that brew uses a ton of raspberries which could clog the
    blow-off tube. I don't know if that would actually happen but maybe he just didn't want nasty
    letters fr...

    I've said it before but I really think 8 weeks from brewday is the absolute floor for porters
    to start tasting good

    Don't worry about sanitizing and cleaning, after a couple brews it becomes automatic and beer
    is pretty forgiving anyway. People who have been brewing a long time with the same equipment
    are actually ...

    No smell from the airlock ever reliably indicates that your beer is screwed. All kinds of weird
    smells can come out during fermentation, even different smells from the same yeast, same malt,
    etc. I'm ...

    After having read this fantastic thread I'm going to leave my beer for a lot longer than I was
    planning, but do you good people have a suggestion for just how long I should have them in the

    I had good results with the "swamp cooler" the carboy in a big rubbermaid bin
    or something, fill it to at least half the height of the carboy with cold water , soak a
    t-shirt and drape...
