  • Posted in thread: First AG attemp... 3 Gal batch? on 11-20-2008 at 01:27 AM
    I only have a 5 gal brew pot, and only have four extract brews under my belt, but would like to
    venture into all grain brewing just for an experiment. My lack of supplies in a problem, but
    can I brew ...

  • Posted in thread: Distilled water... not good enough? on 11-19-2008 at 11:44 PM
    My water's got a ton of sulphur and chlorine smell to it, the pipes and really old too so I
    think filtered tap it out. For my last extract with specialty grains Dunkelweizen, I used about
    3 gal distil...

  • Posted in thread: Dunkelweizen fermentation temp on 11-14-2008 at 03:07 AM
    It's fairly warm here, I use the ice water tub and wet t-shirt method to keep fermentation down
    at 68 or so. I can effectively raise the temp slowly by just removing it from the bath and
    letting the y...

    My AHS Dunkelweizen (OG 1.052) has been in primary for 1 day happily plugging along at 68-70F
    and I was wondering how easy it is to go overboard on high temps? I used WB-06, and have read a
    lot of pla...

  • Posted in thread: Types of wheat beer? on 11-06-2008 at 03:18 AM
    I just bottled my first IPA this evening, and now that my Ale Pail is freed up I'd like to brew
    up a wheat beer, but I'm not sure where to begin. I've enjoyed hefeweizen for years (Pyramid or
    Widmer),...

    Don't send it back immediately... tell them the situation and they may just send you a new one
    for free, and then you'd have two! A manufacturer probably wouldn't do that but a brew store
    might...

  • Posted in thread: Distilled water... not good enough? on 10-31-2008 at 08:57 AM
    I've been using distilled water for my first two batches and was wondering if I should use any
    sort of additive to increase the amounts of minerals in the water. Local tap water is GROSS,
    smells of ch...

    Sounds like Otto needs to get his BUTT WHOOPED.+1 on exercise, my Jack Russell acts completely
    different and barks at strangers when he doesn't go on runs 2 times a day...

    I'm way ahead of you, but now I only have 3 22 oz-ers left! The agony!

  • Posted in thread: thin film in primary? on 10-30-2008 at 02:58 AM
    update: the temp went up 2 degrees (68 to 70) despite ambient dropping a few degrees and the
    lid is being pushed up by positive pressure... indicating regular fermentation?
