An OG of 1.07 is pretty high for a 10 day grain to bottle time, but at 70 degrees the yeasties
are probably done so 1.018 is what you get. Contrary to my earlier advice, I wouldn't ramp it
up (I was t...

I have an 8 gallon brew pot and do full boils. It can be done. But I constantly fret about boil
overs, and wish I had a larger pot. For you, I would wonder how you plan to chill your beer
again if you...

For the record, I went back to using hop bag (s) because they were way easier clean than a

Wow, I've never seen a brew Demon before. Looks like a cool take on a conical.I would say to

I can't speak to the 510, but I've brewed with T-58 before. What you may read is true:
fermenting in the high 60's - 70's will result in a banana-esque off flavor. However, my bud
has used it a few ti...

Thanks for responding. To your second point, they've already treated some of those criticisms
in other articles ( I appreciate her response to the criticisms, but I am not swayed. Saying
that "the st...
