Posted in thread: Preheating strike water on 01-05-2017 at 02:09 AM
Brewing during the week after the kids are in bed is kinda my only option too. Great idea. I'll
have to experiment a bit with how hot to make the water so It'll be close to strike temp when
I'm ready ...

How long ago did you pitch that yeast on there? I'd give it a gentle gentle mix into the beer
and leave it for a week or so. That way you won't make bottle bombs if that yeast still has
sugars to eat....

How much water I should use? I use beersmith2 to tell me how much water I should mash with (and
what the temp should be to get it into the good mash range). -Should I sparge? If you want to?

A crap. I wonder how this puppy got infected. Maybe something on my hop bag? I'm usually pretty
good on sanitization. Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk! - Homsar from homestarrunner.com

Just dryhopped this session ipa. I opened the lid to bottle but found this. I've brewed many
batches, but I don't remember seeing anything quite like this. Thoughts?

I don't do a mash-out, but I usually "fly sparge" with about a gallon of warm (sometimes even
cold) water then add the rest of pre-boil water to the kettle. My efficiency is good... Am I

Just ordered mine! I'll finally be able to use my big kettle for mashing and the boil! Don't
