    my brother-in-law makes a pretty mean hummus - at home, from scratch. I think I have the base
    recipe around someplace. The good thing about hummus is that you can put whatever you want in
    and it'll be...

    You have to explain weird assortments of parts at the hardware store.You have to ask if a
    fitting is really stainless or just chrome plated.You have to explain why you don't have any
    more space in you...

    I would leave in primary the whole fermentation. With that time, you have plenty of time for
    they to ferment all the way - you're at 2 weeks already. I would leave it in for another week,
    then straigh...

    IN general, it appears you're pretty close. The big thing, besides plumbing the structure for
    water / wort transfer, is that you need a mash tun of some sort. You appear to have 2 kettles,
    I presume o...

  • Posted in thread: Dogs and fresh hops on 04-30-2015 at 08:12 PM
    I'm presuming that there is no difference between fresh hops and spent ones (post brewing) I
    heard this several years ago how dangerous they are to dogs (and I didn't read anything about
    some breeds b...

    To me, those all in ones are like buying a finished build pc. You can buy parts and piece it
    together cheaper for at least as much performance... or if you are looking for no hassle then
    you spend the...

  • Posted in thread: what's with commercial IPAs? on 04-28-2015 at 02:22 PM
    Yep, seems like the craft beer buying public is all about the hops ('bout the hops, no
    sweetness [sorry...]) All they want is a super simple base grist and pounds and pounds of hops
    stuffed in there (...

  • Posted in thread: How long did it take you to go all-grain? on 04-22-2015 at 10:38 PM
    Did maybe a dozen or 15 batches before I went full scale AG. Did a couple on 1 gallon batches,
    starting at maybe 10 or so in. Part of rasoning is that I started brewing in a tiny apartment,
    and when I...

    Personally, I would say, that if you are not planning on dry-hopping, to not transfer to
    secondary. Really you don't gain anything by doing this, and you increase the risk of oxidation
    and infection. ...

  • Posted in thread: how long is too long in primary on 04-15-2015 at 03:57 PM
    Timewise wion't be a problem. The only detail is to watch, if you are using an airlock, and
    make sure it doesn't dry out.Personally, I would change that out to a solid bung one I was sure
    that ferment...
