Posted in thread: Aluminum Pot/oxidation layer is myth? on 01-29-2011 at 10:30 AM
Cpt_Kirks nailed it. The oxide layer returns very fast after it has been removed. If you take a
chunk of aluminum and scrub it with something like a wire brush the brush will kind of slide
along the a...

Just wondering if anyone is using this on a first gen iPhone. I downloaded the app and can't
get it to open. The loading screen comes up for about two seconds and then it shuts down. I've

Hells yeah, I'm gonna be brewing up a dunkelweizen in a few days, these pics are making me
anxious to brew it. Looks great!
Posted in thread: Moldy film on top of ferment on 01-23-2011 at 04:15 AM
Without pictures it's hard to be 100% certain, but it sounds like a normal fermentation. If you
have an off white foam with a thin layer of brown "crud" on top of that then no worries, it's
Posted in thread: Testing Alcohol Tolerance on 01-20-2011 at 12:28 AM
I have some yeast that I have captured and know it can make a good beer but now I want to find
out its alcohol tolerance. I am planning on making a high gravity wort out of some DME and
letting it fer...
Posted in thread: How Did You Learn To Brew? on 01-13-2011 at 03:47 AM
So, how did you learn to brew, how did you get into the hobby? Did you have a family member or
good friend there to show you the ropes or did you have to "self-educate" and learn from your
Posted in thread: Lobster stout? on 01-12-2011 at 07:04 PM
That's strange. About a year ago I came home to find my brother had made steak and fresh boiled

crab I was ...
Posted in thread: Siphoning - How low do you go? on 01-12-2011 at 06:44 PM
I use Better Bottles and set my auto-siphon in the little "dimple" in the center until the beer
gets low and then VERY carefully tilt the carboy to get the rest. I always end up with a bit of
Posted in thread: First all grain batch, white ale wort is grey! on 01-12-2011 at 06:14 PM
That wort looks fine. Let it ferment and clear a little bit and I think you will be presently
surprised. Besides, as long as it tastes good who cares what it looks like. We all love to have
Posted in thread: Crystal Malt Substitutions 80L vs 90L on 01-12-2011 at 06:06 PM
I run into this same problem almost every brew. It's not a big deal. Sure, a 10L difference
will theoretically make for a darker beer but I doubt anybody would ever be able to tell. Just
get what's cl...
