I'm on board with the pre-heat method. I usually overshoot the temp to 170-172 and get about 2
gallons of water from the HLT tank into my 12 gallons Coleman rectangular cooler. I've had at
the most, a...
Posted in thread: Giving Gose a go, Lacto starter help needed. on 01-27-2013 at 02:47 PM
I know this isn't the correct way to make a Gose, but I used acidulated malt the last 15
minutes of the mash and it turned out great. It reduced the workload a great deal. I believe I
got it out of a ...

He also said that other liquid flows fine. Just trying to find out his settings.

Yep, you are absolutely right. I was chasing a 2 year old around when I posted that. I meant
stuck sparge w/false bottoms IRT fast runoffs. But, if the manifold is designed correctly,

What psi do you serve at? I serve at 9-10 and get a decent pour. It's not a rocket engine

Edit:I really think the best thing an AG brewer can invest in besides good temp control is a
nice stainless dome style false bottom. I know you guys with homemade fasle bottoms are gonna
want to throw...

It took me 8 years before I had a batch that was completely undrinkable. By that I mean, I have
had some less-than-desirable experiments, but I powered through them because they weren't
horrible. But ...

I've never dedicated the time to fly sparge. But for batch sparging, I get great results from 5
or 10 gallon batches, consistently. Try it once and see if you like it. If it's not for you, go
back to ...
Posted in thread: Trick of the Trade: How do you measure your water? R on 12-16-2012 at 02:33 PM
I installed a sight glass on my HLT and calibrated in gallon intervals. For my brew kettle, I
used a left over piece of cpvc pipe I had laying around and marked it at the same interval. I
used to notc...
Posted in thread: What glassware do you use? on 12-16-2012 at 02:29 PM
I use pint glasses for everything. All my other glassware is upstairs and I usually just grab a
pint glass from near the fridge because they are easily accessible.
