  • Posted in thread: Clean pH pen, Hach pocket pro on 11-25-2015 at 04:06 PM my very limited experience with pH meters...they're all quite fragile creatures and
    sensors don't last very long. Which is why I'd never buy another pH meter that didn't have a
    replaceable s...

  • Posted in thread: What kind of Sparge Arm? on 11-24-2015 at 04:01 PM
    Same here. I recirc BIAB and find there's no need for anything but a hose.I guess I recirculate
    faster than you guys do. I've tried the "lay the hose on top" method and I got some serious
    channelling ...

    If your basement stays between 60 and 70 all year, and you only brew ales, then buying a
    fermentation chamber is not likely to have an impact on the quality of your beer.If you think
    that your basem...

    Fermentation temp control is key. The sooner you bite the bullet and invest in a chest freezer

    Yes, I had a similar experience. I had 5g of an Irish Red that was sitting in a plastic sanke
    sixtel in my basement, sitting outside of my kegerator for about six months. One day I noticed

    No, I haven't had a 99 before, but I do get in the 90's on occasion. The problem with these
    programs are that they're using a generalized PPG for the various grain types. The grain that
    you used might...

  • Posted in thread: Looking for beer tasting "standards" on 11-13-2015 at 06:12 PM
    The Siebel Institute sells beer sensory tasting kits. Various concentrated off-flavors that you
    add to a base beer. Not cheap. But the kits are designed to be used with about 10 people at a
    time, so i...

    This article is pretty bad. Newbie homebrewers beer sucks mostly for the following reasons:1)
    Fermentation temperature was too high. A lot of new brewers think that their 65 basement is
    perfect for f...

    Well...if there was no discernible taste difference then I doubt it would be on the market, has to do SOMETHING for the whiskey. Good or bad is subjective.Some malt roastiness
