    Wait, you're just force carbing?I'd try to avoid doing anything fancy or clever.Only time I've
    put the gas on the wrong post is to blow a hop clog out of the dip tube. For that, it's worth
    it. For jus...

    It's a pain to get off, but totally doable. I'm not sure how much doing this munges up the
    disconnect / post. A monkey wrench helps to get a little extra leverage on the disconnect.

  • Posted in thread: To cold crash or not cold crash (during a heat wave) on 08-17-2015 at 09:42 PM
    Unless ice is expensive or you're feeling lazy, I would go ahead and do your normal procedure.
    Shouldn't hurt to cold crash only partway, if that's what happens. (Me, I'd be lazy.)

    Carbonating warm isn't risky. You just need a different pressure to achieve a desired level of
    carbonation. (Alternately, you can carb using your normal pressure and accept that it'll be
    undercarbed w...

    So let's start by adressing the volume thing. A gallon is a gallon, no matter how you slice it.
    Doesn't matter if your pot is shallow, deep, cylindrical, rectangular, conical. Equating a pot
    to a spon...

  • Posted in thread: Trying to understand all grain batch sparging on 08-14-2015 at 06:36 PM
    I had the sudden heart sinking realization that the recipe I was playing with, as I stated
    myself earlier in some posts, is a partial mash using 5.25 ttl lbs of grain and 3.15 lbs of
    LME.For a partial...

  • Posted in thread: Trying to understand all grain batch sparging on 08-14-2015 at 06:31 PM
    I thought i read in here that after anything after the first drain may be unnecessary(if you
    can mash in up to 1/2 your boil vol, counting in absorbtion). So you could measure first
    runnings and add s...

    Unfortunately, BeerSmith doesn't currently support making it easy to create a recipe that does
    sparging in what I think is the easiest way.There are a bunch of options:1. The BeerSmith
    default, which ...

  • Posted in thread: Cold beer carbonates faster than warmer beer? on 08-12-2015 at 12:09 AM
    CO2 solubility increases as temperature decreases.I couldn't tell you offhand the speed
    difference between a low pressure of CO2 at low temperature vs. a high pressure at higher
    temperature.

    Belle Saison is pretty solid IMO.
