    No poop, there I was. I had my neighbor over,first time ever, going through a brew day. Being a
    veteran brewer, I didn't want to scare him away from brewing with an advanced all grain brew. I
    decided ...

    I spent the entire brew day sanitizing my equipment in water that I forgot to add starsan to.
    Beer tastes great. I brewed the exact same IPA a couple weeks later with sanitized equipment
    and I can't t...

    Hello, I bought a Wyeast Smack Pack over a week ago.When I got home I went to put the pack in
    the fridge and thought it was a little inflated. Today, I take the pack out and I can't feel
    the yeast pou...

    Didn't even think about the foam until I transferred the 'sanitizer' from the tote to a carboy
    for use in the next brew session. Funny, no bubbles? Noooo!

  • Posted in thread: Forgot the Starsan! on 06-08-2013 at 06:17 PM
    Ok, I've learned over the last year of brewing not to drink (too much) on a brew day. I
    deliberately start the day sober and will not partake until the grains are in sach's rest. So,
    while perfectly s...

    I don't want to reinvigorate the debate on whether or not to secondary. My purpose in using a
    secondary was to open space in my small freezer that is limited to only two ale pales. My hope
    was that tw...

    Ok, I moved my beer pipe line out to the work shed. My wife is so happy and it really is a nice
    work shed.Now that Fall is here and winter is approaching, I need some advice.I have a freezer
    that I'm ...

  • Posted in thread: Best single addition to your brew day procedure on 06-19-2012 at 11:25 AM
    I use a venturri tube to aerate my wort. No sloshing from pot to bucket. No rocking and rolling
    carboys. No drills or whisks. Just a short length of racking tube, with a paper clip sized
    hole, inserte...

  • Posted in thread: Mash Tun versus Grain Bag? on 06-14-2012 at 02:28 PM
    I've done two AG batches so far, after two extracts and two PMs.On a budget, I've started out
    with minimal equipment. Currently I use a paint strainer bag to line a 5 gallon rubbermaid
    cooler. I'll ma...
