  • Posted in thread: Using gelatin for the first time on 11-26-2014 at 08:49 PM
    I always cold crash the beer for 24-48 hours before adding my gelatin mixture, I then let it
    sit for ~ 72 hours before transferring to the keg. As far as preparing the gelatin mixture
    itself, I boil 1...

  • Posted in thread: Missing two pieces of my 3-piece airlock for daysssssss on 11-10-2014 at 10:33 PM
    Was the airlock clean/sanitized? Was it kept in a closed fermentation chamber that is
    reasonably clean and is free of mold? If so I'd imagine it's just fine. Either way I wouldn't
    dump it, once you're...

    While I don't really understand the desire for caffeinated beer, if you're just interested in
    the bitterness from the caffeine and hoping to hide the pomegranate taste, why not just use
    pure caffeine?

    There's no real reason to use a kit IMHO if you have a local homebrew store. Just find a recipe
    you like (there are plenty on here) and make your shopping list. I don't like the idea of kits
    simply be...

    Stirring typically helps but when that fails I always just open the valve and blow through the

    That is NOT the same stuff.TSP is trisodium phosphateThe Red Devil TSP/90 is sodium
    metasilicate, which is much more environmentally friendly and is what is in PBW So totally
    different stuff. Although...

    Does anyone know a good substitute for TSP/90?I have been to 5 different stores and none of
    them carry the Red Devil brand....Help!Curious about this as well. I can find Savogran brand
    TSP at HD/Lowes...
