  • I got into homebrewing in 2004 as a means to discover how beer was made. Started with complete beginner kits using only extract. Years later I have acquired more storage but still consider myself a beginner. I usually try to find free space in the basement and store my buckets and carboys someplace dark and out of the way.

    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...

    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,
    channeling isn't...

    What psi do you serve at? I serve at 9-10 and get a decent pour. It's not a rocket engine
    shooting out, but it fills a pint faster than 45 seconds.

    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 03:33 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 03:29 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.
