Posted in thread: Is it possible to make full flavored extract beers on 04-18-2011 at 02:15 PM
You mentioned you did AG in the past - Are you using the same water source as you were then? I
notice a huge difference between tap vs spring vs distilled. The distilled tends to be very
light and tap...

Sweet.. how much did the kegs end up costing? I was thinking about getting a 3 gallon keg for
experimental batches but the 3 gallon kegs that i have found all go for over $100.

Yeah Smutty's imperial stout is much different then KTG. I actually prefer the Smutty when
comparing the two fresh. The Smutty is very hop forward, lots of west coast hops. KTG should be
aged at least...

That's a hell of a recipe. Big and complex. I guess the beer is, too, no? I don't think I've

but still ...

Posted in thread: Question about co2 and fittings. on 03-02-2011 at 10:51 PM

Posted in thread: belgian tripel fermenting on 02-24-2011 at 11:46 AM
Curious - Why didn't you add sugar to the boil? Why after initial fermentation? I have a
belgian tripel in secondary that started at 1.091 and was 1.022 when I racked to secondary. I
used WLP500 w/ st...
Posted in thread: Random thought about legality of personal brewers on 02-23-2011 at 11:01 PM
I would think that under agency doctrine it wouldn't be an issue if the assistant was brewing
within the 200 gallon limit for the principal's personal consumption (like you I'm an lawyer
and also don'...
Posted in thread: co2 in the fridge? on 02-08-2011 at 11:56 AM
What about the effect of the temperature in terms of efficiency? Meaning that, with the CO2
tank inside the fridge, the pressure drops from the cold, will that mean you can get less use
out of the sam...
