    I would recommend the latest compilation of The Complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charlie Papazian
    and the follow up to it, The Homebrewers Companion. The latter get into brewing a bit deeper.

    Treadmills have electric motors and controls that can be adapted to brewing equipment.:)I
    agree. Throw that treadmill motor on a grain mill!

    The reason not to carb at that pressure longer than 36 hrs is over carbonation. You can easily
    add more carb, but getting rid of extra carbonation is a PITA.

    Ok. Lets try this again. 2-3 weeks to ferment your beer in a primary. No need to rack to a
    secondary. Then it's time to bottle or keg. If I bottle, it sits in the bottles for 4 weeks
    minimum. ( 2 week...

  • Posted in thread: Upgraded. Goodbye Mr Beer on 12-09-2012 at 06:01 PM
    I started with a MrBeer kit. It introduced me to brewing and I actually made some pretty good
    beers with it using the HME's with additions. I've since moved on to AG 5 gal batches. But I
    still use the...

    Sorry. I meant I eliminate the secondary fermentation caused by naturally carbonating. Even
    though I'm letting it slow carb for 2 weeks, it's also conditioning during that time. If I
    naturally carb in...

    Basically you rack into the corny after fermentation is complete. You can use the corny as a
    secondary by purging the head space with co2 and let it sit at room temp for a couple of weeks.
    I don't do ...

    Congrats on the partial mash! Sounds like you had fun. The LBK is a great little fermentor that
    can be used for all techniques of brewing. I still do small AG batches in mine to test out
    recipes. Good...

    Blinchman is the best. But you pay for it. I own a megapot and love it! It boils off a little
    extra, but that can be adjusted in the calculations. For the quality and price they can't be
    beat! If my m...

    From what I understand, they are a small outfit. If you have issues, send them an email. Let
    them know in that email that you are a home brewer. That's the only way they warranty. If you
    own a LHBS, t...
