Well, its been about 4.5 hours since I made my starter and there is some serious activity going
on. The yeast are churning around and a foamy head is forming at the surface. They should be

Should a starter show signs of life in less than 12hrs?I'm not sure mine have, though I have
only made a few.Regardless, it makes sense to pitch a young starter rather than just rely on a

This may not be relevant to you but I have had experiences where the sequence of connecting the
hose and opening the valves messes with the proper flow of the fuel. Not sure how or why. It
tends to wo...

Posted in thread: Worn Corona plates. on 01-22-2010 at 03:52 AM
I picked up another corona mill but the plates show significant wear. Many of the ridges have
been flattened. I haven't used it yet but I'm wondering if the wear will screw-up a proper

You don't need new friends, just brew a Kölsch. After three batches, I still get the same

Posted in thread: 50' or 25' immersion for 5 gal batches? on 11-05-2009 at 03:34 AM
I built a 50' x 1/2" for my 5gal batches. It does work great but it is a couple of coils taller
