    ABOUT ME

  • Basic extract setup was the first thing I bought for myself post-graduation before I got on the ferry in Bellingham to come up to AK. First batch made many mistakes, and it was the worst beer I've ever tasted. Steadily improved since then. Let my wife add some ingredients to an Irish stout and she ended up winning a homebrew competition medal. Just getting into an all-stainless all-grain setup in a couple of weeks.
  • Imperial stout (1st all grain)
    2IPA
    Christmas spice Belgian Strong
  • Northwest-style IPA
  • Orval clone
  • Male
  • Single
  • Juneau
  • AK

  • Posted in thread: Cereal Killer mill roller question on 01-07-2012 at 09:57 PM
    Yes, that's the way that mill - and nearly all roller mills - work. One roller is cranked, the
    other is "passively" spun by virtue of the grain passing between the two.As for the gap, I use
    the stock ...

    LHBS mill (which I've always used until now) has both rollers rotating to crush the grain. Got
    a new Cereal Killer for Xmas and indications on the web say that to adjust the width you loosen
    and tight...

  • Posted in thread: Hoses/tubing. What's the best out there? on 11-29-2011 at 04:53 AM
    I need a 1/2" ID hose for my homemade immersion chiller and would like some extra for pulling
    wort out of my stainless 9-gallon MLT (a Bayou Classic with false bottom and weldless stainless
    ball valve...

    I tried that once...never again.The hops expand and turn into a round brink. IT leaves no room
    for the wort to get in. I got next to ZERO hop utilization and wound up with an INSANELY sweet
    beer.Well ...

    make tea with this thing all the time. It could probably hold at least an ounce of pellets.
    Might not leave much room for them to expand though. Any thoughts, or anyone tried anything
    like this?

  • Posted in thread: Moving to All Grain! on 09-22-2011 at 02:33 AM
    I'm down the stretch for AG too. Decided I just wanted all stainless touching my hot liquids,
    so I bought two 9-gallon Bayou Classics and will mash out of one with a weldless stainless ball
    valve and ...

    I haven't done an all-grain yet but I'm planning to use a 9-gallon stainless with a false
    bottom for my

    Just dry hopped an IPA and having a few flashbacks of one of my previous batches when I didn't
    realize leaf hops would completely mess up my flow and aerate the whole bucket.This time I used
    pellets a...

    Hi all,Been reading these threads every time I have a question that I type into Google. I've
    brewed probably 8 batches so far, so pretty new. Pretty much done collecting my all-grain
    equipment, so wil...
