Posted in thread: First starter on 11-25-2014 at 04:14 AM
Depends on how anal you are. Kinda, sorta: dilute. Not so much: leave it be. I doubt you'll
notice the difference in your beer either way. The fact that you are making a starter at all is
the real dif...
Posted in thread: Transfer finished carbonated beer from one keg to another? on 11-21-2014 at 04:50 PM
I would recommend keeping the lid on the smaller keg and simply venting the pressure (pull the
relief valve or depress gas post) as needed during the transfer. Do this slowly and
occasionally as the b...
Posted in thread: 1000ml erlenmeyer...too small? on 11-18-2014 at 07:55 PM
I think two stir plates and two 2,000ml flasks would be the way to go instead of one stir plate
and one 4,000ml flask. With two stir plates, you could make the same amount of starter but if
you ever w...

I started out with a 1,000ml flask. It now sits unused next to my 2,000ml flasks. I didn't use
that 1,000ml flask for very many batches.I'd advise you to spend the extra bucks on the 2,000ml
Posted in thread: Pilsner Malt - Max % Without 90 Min Boil on 11-05-2014 at 06:19 PM
Interesting stuff. I've also tended to avoid pils-heavy recipes because I didn't want to do a
90-minute boil. I may reconsider.

So I just tapped mine last night. I brought a glass of this and a glass of the original in for
my wife and her response was "so these really aren't the same beer?"The color and hops are
probably as cl...

Currently brewing my first clone attempt. Grain bill is pretty much what millhouse9 came up
with originally and the hop schedule is a slight tweak from the last citra blonde I brewed.OG:

Yeah, that sounds like a good idea too, but I would try hard to not go over 20 IBUs. For me,
the nice citra aroma is a key feature of this beer so moving what you have to the flame out and
dry hop add...

I would definitely throw in some extra crystal. 1 lb total would probably be a good start. I
think the dry hop character is pretty important with this beer, probably more important that
what you get f...

Looks awesome! I'm in Denver every now and again, I'll have to come by. I really like the
attitude of your brewery, 'good beer every day (with your neighbors).' Or that is what I took
away.Wish I coul...
