Do you have a wort chiller? Submerge the chiller in an ice bath and run your beer through it
between the keg and the tap. That's what bars do when they serve at picnic tables etc.
Posted in thread: Why are Stone beers so expensive? on 09-11-2012 at 02:30 AM
Is there really no value to quality when it comes to beer? Honestly, the price of something is
more than just the sum of the cost of its ingredients. I pay more for certain expensive beers
because I k...
Posted in thread: Beer going stale fast? on 08-22-2012 at 10:40 AM
Are you brewing with extract? Is it liquid or dry?I have found that LME beers go stale faster
than DME, so I brew exclusively with light DME as my base sugar and then adjust flavor as
needed with stee...
Posted in thread: Is there a dry yeast equivalent? on 08-22-2012 at 02:46 AM
There has to be somewhere local (within 30mi of Stamford) where you can get liquid yeast,

moved between countries a few times and every time I had to dump and rebuy all my gear except
for my precio...

How do I take into account different hop AA% between recipes in a particular batch and what is
listed in my recipe? Currently, I am calculating the new hop weight in a separate spreadsheet
and then up...
Posted in thread: Didn't properly clean new wort chiller on 01-09-2010 at 04:30 PM
well I'm more concerned with it having not been clean enough. Has anyone brewed with a chiller
that hadn't been properly cleaned before use?
Posted in thread: Didn't properly clean new wort chiller on 01-09-2010 at 04:10 PM
I bought a copper coil immersion chiller (didn't DIY, its from Brupaks) and I boiled it in hot
water with some vinegar for 20 minutes. I must not have used enough vinegar, because the beer
that I made...
Posted in thread: Ran out of caps! on 12-14-2009 at 11:33 AM
I meant the bottles themselves, that they can hold the pressure. I capped them a day late, but
they were kept covered so I'm pretty confident the beer inside will be fine. :mug:
