    To be honest I don't think Tank 7 is all that funky ...just ferment normal ...and concentrate
    on the aggressive Amarillo hoppingHuh...I've always attributed the citrusy/spicy flavor of T7
    to the yeast...

    I'm brewing a version of this recipe this weekend and using WY3787, since it was recommended by
    BLVD. In order to get the Tank 7 farmhouse funk from this yeast, I'm thinking about pitching at
    a lower ...

    The proper pressure is directly related to the temp of beer. The colder the beer, the lower the
    pressure required to hit your desired volumes of CO2. I shoot for 2.4 volumes in most ales and
    serve at ...

  • Posted in thread: So who's brewing this weekend? on 01-19-2012 at 06:04 PM
    Assuming my shipment from BMW shows up, I'll be doing a Speckled Heifer Creme and a buddy is
    popping his cherry on Yooper's Oatmeal Stout. I thought that would be a easy first brew for
    him. . . plus, ...

    Hey Ed!I also love the BrewBuilder tool. Though, I have one suggestion. I apologize if it has
    already been discussed. To me, it would be really handy to be able to import existing recipes
    from BeerXML...

  • Posted in thread: What beer kits would you buy on 11-18-2011 at 04:09 PM
    I would recommend a range of styles. Perhaps a pale, brown or amber, stout, belgian wit or
    german hefe and a lager, perhaps a pils. It might also be nice to add a rotating seasonal kit
    as well. Perhap...

    scares the hell out of me. How did you manage to never tip that thing over?

  • Posted in thread: When is too late for Pectic Enzyme? on 11-02-2011 at 02:41 AM
    I've added it months after fermentation has ended. Just dump it in the carboy and give it a
    stir (gently) to dissolve. If you don't want to stir it in dry, pull a little cider out with a
    thief, mix th...

    Iodophor is a sanitizer, isn't it? At least, this is what I use it for. What worries me is the
    gunk that may form on the inside of the sanke kegs, because I can't reach inside to remove it
    by hand, so...
