Posted in thread: What do you hate most about brew day? on 04-22-2014 at 09:30 PM
My back is usually screaming at the end of the day. That's about it, though. I like the
waiting. It gives me a chance to sit quietly and think. Or have lunch. Both of which can be

I've had yeast behave this way. It was using US-05. Only time it's ever happened, though I use
that yeast all the time. It just clumped up like cheese curds, all the way through fermentation

Look at the bright side. You could be like me. I have no friends, and I don't get to brew
nearly often enough....

The previous posts are giving good advice, but I'm just going to complicate things slightly, if

I think I'm seeing what the OP is referring to. It's hard to make out, but it looks like

know, leave it ...

You can do that, too. I cut mine because it was easier. 'Took all of about 30 seconds. No
oiling, no drilling, no cleaning up to do. The only purpose of the gas dip tube is to hold an
o-ring in place,...

If I'm understanding your question, yes, that's the tapered gas tube. FYI, if you don't want to
use the plastic one, you can use a shortened SS tube. You'll just need to cut it down to about
1/3" in l...
Posted in thread: Gelatin Not Working on 04-09-2014 at 08:23 PM
You can add the gelatin to warm beer (beer temp. makes no difference), you can add it to the

from the botto...

If you're shooting for a "traditional" version, I'd say the percentage of wheat looks a bit
high to me. I'd also say that 1 oz. of hops at 15 minutes will break the mold a bit, too.
