    If you can tilt the airlock and or bung and remove it, you can cover the mouth of the carboy
    with a piece of sanitized foil then move it as Yooper suggested. Sanitize and re-install the
    airlock.It loo...

  • Posted in thread: spiced porter input wanted. on 12-08-2016 at 02:19 AM
    Since I hate licorice I would suggest a different spice. I have used Coriander once. And orange
    peel once. Generally I don't like spiced beer, but am considering experimenting, one with
    cinnamon and a...

  • Posted in thread: Blow Off Tube Question on 12-08-2016 at 02:14 AM
    I leave the tube in place until the beer is done. If there is a lot of blow off I change out
    the catch container. I soak the tube in oxyclean and flush with a lot of fresh water to clear
    out the gunk....

    When you move the carboy for the transfer, do it early and let it sit there for at least a
    couple of hours. Then transfer carefully. You should not have to worry too much about the
    sediment if you let...

    If you are looking at going to BIAB pretty quickly, get at least a 10 gallon pot with a ball
    valve and thermometer. I have a 10 gallon water cooler mash tun and a big grain bill just
    barely fits (5 ga...

    If what I found is correct you might get about .005 increase if you use all of the DME.If you
    can't afford a roller mill, look into a Corona style mill. About $25 - $35 on Amazon. You can
    hand mill, o...

    There are endless threads on this......Unless you are adding something (very few things) that
    cannot be added to the primary, there is just no need. It also saves a step where contaminates
    or oxygen c...

  • Posted in thread: Mashed too high - FG 1.021 - Any yeast suggestions to dry it out? on 12-07-2016 at 11:35 PM
    I guess it is a stalled fermentation as it's no longer fermenting! Sounds like hop tea to try
    and balance it out a bit. I'll take a pass on the brett.Unless anyone knows of an enzyme that
    may break th...

    I went a common route. 5 gallon batches. 20 qt stockpot on the stove with extract kits. Bought
    the 30 qt (7.5 gallon) turkey fryer kit. Accounting for boil off I needed almost 7 gallons to
    start. I ha...

    Here are 2 "Lagers" that I have made without cold lagering. I doubt you can get a true Munich
    Helles but you could get something nice. lagering will get you closer.
