  • Posted in thread: What mistakes have you made? on 10-01-2012 at 07:19 AM
    After almost 20 some years of homebrewing I'm pretty sure I have made ALL of them. Nasty ones
    where a stuck up blow off tube that blew, still have stains on the ceiling from that one. Then
    there was t...

    Longer you bulk age, the clearer it will be in the bottle and less sedimate will build up.Maybe
    it's just picky, but gunk in the bottom is not what I want in a great bottle of mead. For that
    reason I ...

    After attempting to forget about these bottles I finally opened a small bottle today and got
    inspired to update this thread. On 2011-03-27 I gave a bottle to someone I worked with who

    By the time they got nicely carbed they were nearly all gone. I keep telling him that patience
    is a virtue.The only cure for lack of patience is more carboys and a full pipeline.

  • Posted in thread: Can I use this cooler for mashing? on 11-19-2011 at 11:50 PM
    Coleman - 5 Gallon is pretty small for all grain it can be done but it gets really tight for
    higher gravity mashes, most people use 10 gallons.

    You could check for starch conversion using a white plate and iodine, I would shoot for 160F to
    mashin, stir very well to ensure everything is wet and at even temp then let it sit for 30
    minutes even ...

    I'm thinking that just be clumps of yeast that have formed and dried out on top.If not, you
    have a nice lambic going on.

    You could always wrap the fermenter in a blanket, fermentation will produce a little heat and
    insulating it will up the temp a few degrees, but even then low 60's is where I usually do my

    Put a lava lamp behind them and tell her your getting in touch with your inner hippy. (Not that
    it is a bad thing or anything like that).

  • Posted in thread: Racked to a Secondary...Now What? on 11-19-2011 at 08:30 PM
    Time will allow it to clear, once fermentation is done the temperature is no longer critical to
    keep from producing off flavors.Until it is fully degassed I would keep an air lock on it.If
    you don't m...
