    Yes, at 120V these are rated at 15A as you can see from the picture above. I used a 15A circuit
    breaker in my enclosure....because if I ever blow a fuse I know I won't be able to find a spare
    handy wh...

    Thanks for sharing. Glad it wasn't worse.Anyone thinking of building one of these: Make sure
    you use the proper AWG wire (should be 90deg 18AWG or lower), and a 10A fuse, to prevent these
    kinds of thi...

    I think with the fermentors, you should be wary that "shortcuts can cause long delays." I think
    you can do a lot of DIY for the brewhouse, but your fermentors are what control your product
    flow and be...

    Like Temptd2, when tasting anyone's homebrew, as a conversation starter, I usually ask if
    they're happy how it turned out. You can usually tell pretty quickly if they'd want any

    You might want to do some reading about high vs low pressure propane before dropping cash on
    regulators and burners (I'm not sure what a home propane tank service is). The hardware for
    high and low ar...

    If you make sure your controller doesn't flip on and off quickly (most controllers can limit
    this) you should be ok. Also, with a bunch of beer at temp in there, the temp is not going to
    swing much. C...

    Another use for that leftover wort is to do a ferment test. After pitching my yeast, I'll put
    some leftover wort into the flask with the remaining yeast dregs. I leave this at room temp to
    see how far...

    If its not water or infection, could it be the ingredients? Did you use the same ingredients
    source for both batches? Could you have some bad malt, or nasty hops or something?

    I think that was a common practice used to produce Scottish ales. Sent from my iPhone using

  • Posted in thread: Is my water desirable? on 04-01-2014 at 09:08 PM
    I'm no expert so apply as many salts to my analysis as you care to (pun!).Your water isn't too
    soft (generally soft water is good - its easy to build back up). It may not be too hard either
    - probably...
