    You will have to compromise somewhere. Personally, since I think fermentation temp is the most
    important than I would make that priority one and than base my beers off of that until you get
    another fr...

    No activity. I allways use dry yeast and i dont uasually rehydrate, and all didn't

    Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout. I don't even see how they call it a stout!You cant be serious?
    That is a top 5 beer for me...easy.I definitely don't hate them, but I feel that Stone's beers

  • Posted in thread: Which of my brewing sins is the worst? on 12-30-2014 at 07:49 PM
    Your only mistake (of any consequence) was pitching at 77 and fermenting above 70. Yes. The
    room was 68 you say (although unless you live in a lab incubator it fluctuated above and below
    that temperat...

    of the beers I've ...

    How do you recommend purging a carboy with co2.

    oxygen is worth t...

    Stating what has already been said but this is generally my process:Depends on the gravity of
    the beer but in general none of my beers go less than 14 days. I mostly brew in the 5-7% range
    and let it ...

  • Posted in thread: Mash tun insulated "jacket" idea for gravity system on 12-20-2014 at 09:07 AM
    Seems like a whole lot of work for something a cooler does a great job at. Why not build a
    gravity system and still use the cooler mashtun. Longevity won't be an issue, entry users of
    that system that...
