  • Posted in thread: Scotch Ale, very strong on 01-11-2014 at 01:46 AM
    Have you used 2 types of yeast in one batch before? Never heard of doing that. Also, you can't
    get a cooler room in January in KY? I'm sure it's below freezing this morning.Its done all the
    time, but ...

  • Posted in thread: What is the proper way to use an immersion chiller on 01-03-2014 at 10:58 PM
    Max water flow, and stir the wort with the chiller itself. But that may or may not actually be
    feasible depending on your kettle setup. But you don't actually *need* to do this. Its always
    going to ge...

  • Posted in thread: Anybody not strain hops from kettle to carboy on 01-03-2014 at 10:31 PM
    I sometimes don't, mostly when I run out of the strainer bags. Never noticed any crazy
    effect.Normally my procedure is to pump the beer from kettle to a sanitized bucket through a
    paint strainer, shak...

  • Posted in thread: All my IPAs taste the same on 01-03-2014 at 10:17 PM
    I sense a big boom of flying hot wort as the liquid transitions to gas immediately upon
    touching the wort. Sounds like something to watch through a blast shieldBut with the blast
    shield down, I can't ...

  • Posted in thread: Are there any hops you actually dislike? on 12-24-2013 at 05:24 PM
    Sure, Northern Brewer when used by itself in large amounts is very woody. I once had an IPA
    made with all Spalt and it was not pleasant in the least.

  • Posted in thread: How important is it to sanitize keg tap and line? on 12-23-2013 at 11:17 PM
    I used to be anal about shooting some on there every time I disconnected, but now I don't even
    bother. I've never noticed any difference at all, but take that as anecdotal evidence.

  • Posted in thread: Added irish moss after flameout. Am I ok? on 12-23-2013 at 11:14 PM
    Im hoping that the 5 minutes or so at 180F was enough to kill anything that could cause
    problems. Anyone else have any input?5 minutes at 180 is almost assuredly enough. I once had an
    earwig pop in wh...

  • Posted in thread: Refractometer Problems on 12-23-2013 at 11:13 PM
    Leave the refractometer in your house if the garage is very cold. Put the drops of wort onto
    the prism and then let it adjust for a few minutes before taking a reading. Refractometers like
    the hand-he...

  • Posted in thread: What system to buy / with up to $50000 ?.. on 12-23-2013 at 10:19 PM
    Hello everybody....after much research and debate, I leave this up to you.To add to our
    restaurant, were adding a brew pub.The systems that seem to come out on top are (in no
    particular order) PYSCHO ...

  • Posted in thread: Diageo and AB-InBev petitioning the government/FDA to regulate homebrewing on 12-14-2013 at 12:47 AM
    It makes no sense from a common-sense perspective. For one, there's no money in doing that and
    two, there's no general trend towards restriction of home brewing. In fact, its the exact
    opposite, the l...
