    . . . some serve off the primary but with all that trub in the bottom, . . . I also filter so
    that I don't get any solids off in my pours.I'm in the middle of filtering from my primary into
    my serving...

    OnNe more question . . . what is the best way to oxegenate the wort before (or when) you put it
    into the fermenter. Right now I either shake the glass carboy or run small pump with a stone on
    the end ...

  • Posted in thread: Boiling the wort chiller on 04-10-2015 at 12:21 AM
    I boil my chiller for the entire boil. My thinking was that adding at 15 mins would drop the
    temp and adding it early would avoid that.I certainly see a drop in temp when I put it in at 15
    minutes. Us...

    Thanks for all the tips. I'm going to assemble some parts and give it a try. Tegra's drawing is
    helpful. As is typcial, I'll probably come up with my own wild ass design and go from there.
    That's the ...

    I could use some help with a simple question about this process. I went through the first 200
    posts and cannot find a clear answer. I'm using 5 gal. corny kegs, ten gallon batches and plan
    to put the ...

    Go electric. It may seem like it is difficult to figure out, but a little homework and help
    from the guys on this site, you can do it. Heck, i did it. And never read a schematic before I
    started. Prop...

    If the kegs were not cold, you won't get much CO2 to mix with the beer. The colder the beer the
    more CO2 it will accept.

  • Posted in thread: Hot break on 04-26-2014 at 12:04 PM
    To keep from boiling over, I used to spray water on the foam. Lately I have been using my
    vacuum - turned the hose around to blow air - and blow the air over the foam. It seems to break
    the foam down ...

  • Posted in thread: Difference between flameout and aroma steep on 04-26-2014 at 10:33 AM
    Flameout is when you turn off the boil and then add your addition. Usually hops added for extra
    flavor just before fermentation.Not sure what you mean by "aroma steep".

    Good idea on the heavy duty switch. But I like doing just as you said, switching the PID output
    on or off.The take away for others (and for me) trying to diagnose electric problems: Always
    disconnect ...
