  • Posted in thread: Did I ruin my beer. Need help asap. on 01-21-2015 at 02:50 PM
    Breweries used to (and some still do) ferment in huge vats open to the air. Unless you keep
    your carboy next to a litter box or something, you should be fine.

  • Posted in thread: what constitutes a high gravity or big beer? on 11-20-2014 at 02:59 PM
    Gravity wise I think most people would put the line at 1060. Yeast starters/multiple packs of
    yeast become mandatory beyond that point. ABV wise, north of 8% probably starts being
    considered "big."

  • Posted in thread: Questions about partigyle on 10-16-2014 at 04:59 PM
    Not sure what your setup looks like, but if you can mash enough grain to do a 15 gallon batch,
    you should be able to a hefty partigyle. There are charts available ( Like this one---> )
    that help you...

  • Posted in thread: To bottle or not to bottle? HELP! on 10-09-2014 at 04:26 PM
    Put your cases of bottles in trash bags and tie them closed if you are worried about
    explosions. Helps keep the shrapnel and splatter off the floor, walls, ceiling, etc.

  • Posted in thread: 2 beers out of 1 mash/boil on 10-09-2014 at 01:57 PM
    I love doing partiglyes and split mashes. My excuse was always to make 2.5 gallons (1 case) of
    something strong enough that I don't necessarily want to have on tap which I can bottle and
    age, and then...

    I believe general consensus is to not do secondary fermentation transfer any more. I stopped
    transferring to secondary carboys a while ago, and I think giving the yeast extra time to clean
    itself up i...

  • Posted in thread: New Danstar Belle Saison Dry Yeast? on 07-17-2014 at 08:48 PM
    I had success with an imperial saison that came in at 11%. Used the belle saison yeast
    harvested from a session saison. Went from 1084 to 1002 in a six week primary fermentation in
    the low 70s. Muy bu...

    UPDATE: I removed the little check valve ball and everything worked fine.

    204278Here's all the parts. Am I missing something, or do I need to remove some redundant
    component since I have the ball lock posts?

  • Posted in thread: Sanke adapted for home brew fixtures on 06-07-2014 at 02:58 PM
    Yeah, that's what I thought. Beer on top, gas in the side right? Twist and and lock down. I
    actually have ball lock fittings attached to the sanke, and they latch in solid too, so there
    shouldn't be a...
