  • Posted in thread: Looking for a first brew suggestion! on 08-13-2014 at 05:28 PM
    Leggom, Would you be able to send me the recipe for this? Sounds like a winner. I actually have
    my second child on the way and would love to brew the same thing! Except my second is due in
    Dec.!! But ...

    I would say it depends on how much you are willing to invest. I just brewed my first all grain
    batch last weekend. The new gear I invested in was done on the cheap, but it worked out nicely.
    I put tog...

    If you want to brew something that you won't drink for almost a year, you could brew something
    big like a Russian Imperial Stout, or a nice mead or wine.The absolute hands down best brew I
    have done t...

  • Posted in thread: First All Grain Brew - High pre-boil gravity on 08-11-2014 at 02:52 AM
    If you boiled off water the readings couldn't have been the same. My guess is your pre-boil
    wort was not well mixed and maybe you got a higher percentage of first runnings in your
    measurement.The reci...

    Why do you say you have a bad hydrometer? Did you calibrate it with distilled water @ 60* F? I
    did the math, and if your batch was supposed to be 5.5 gallons @1.044, and you ended up with
    4.25 gallons...

    Well, my OG was the same reading as my pre-boil, so I'm chalking it up to a bad hydrometer.
    I'll have to invest in a refractometer. It looks like I may only have 4-4.5 gallons in my
    carboy, so i can e...

  • Posted in thread: Oh crap, just dumped a half bottle of defoamer into my boil on 08-10-2014 at 08:02 PM
    I used to battle boil overs doing full boils in my 8 gallon kettle. i just kept a spray bottle
    of water close by, or the hose on mist. If a potential boil over started, i'd spritz it with
    cool water t...

    So my first all grain brew is underway. After mashing, i took a pre-boil sample and stuck it in
    the freezer until its temp dropped to 70 degrees. When i took my gravity reading, it came in at
    1.056. T...

  • Posted in thread: Pre-brew day prep. Aluminum Kettle seasoning on 08-10-2014 at 05:21 AM
    pretty amazing how much it changes when you boil in it. I'm not sure if it changes anything
    taste wise as I seasoned mine too, but if the metal discolors like that, it's gotta change
    somethingYeah, I ...

    Nice work on the kettle, Leggoma! I'm looking to possibly do something similar soon. Do you
    happen to have a parts list for the modifications?:mug:One mistake i made is that the
    thermometer probe is a...
