  • Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 03-21-2016 at 02:06 AM
    I brewed for the first time in just about forever today. I packed up my equipment, went to my
    friend's house, and we drove to his girlfriend's dad's house, and I helped them brew a vanilla
    porter. (We...

    First beer in over a year! Biermuncher's Centennial Blonde is home in its fermenter right now.
    Yeah, yeah, way too long; there were other factors at play. After pulling myself out of a funk,
    working m...

    I'm brewing this right now, and I'm halfway through the boil. It's the first time in quite a
    while that I've brewed anything, and it smells delicious!Thanks, Biermuncher!

  • Posted in thread: Why am I only getting 42 bottle on 04-18-2013 at 01:28 AM
    A couple possibilities come to mind:* Are you topping up in the fermenter and relying on its
    markings? Those aren't the most accurate in the world.* If you're starting with 5 gallons in
    the kettle, by...

    Even though the cap has a liner, you're still risking interaction between the beer and the
    metal in the cap if the integrity of the liner isn't perfect. Or at least, that's the
    explanation that I've r...

  • Posted in thread: Steeping water temperture on 04-12-2013 at 09:07 AM
    Yes. The total heat of the water + grain will remain the same, but the temperature will be
    somewhere in between the two, same as if you mixed a cup of hot water and a cup of room
    temperature water tog...

    The 1.25 qts/lb is what I usually use. I really second the idea to have hot and cold water
    handy. I boil a teakettle of water on the stove before I dough in so that it's not a mad rush
    if I'm a little...

    I seem to be rather fond of posting this article which talks about the differences between
    mashing and steeping, so I'll go ahead and drop the link here.

  • Posted in thread: Do I want my wort to evaportate during boil? on 04-11-2013 at 03:01 AM
    What doby said. You're primarily wanting to boil off a compound called DMS, which is converted
    at high temperatures from the SMM (a different compound) in the malt. If you don't boil
    vigorously and dr...
