    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...

  • Posted in thread: Substitute for Oxyclean and PBW on 09-26-2011 at 06:16 PM
    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...

  • Posted in thread: Substitute for Oxyclean and PBW on 09-26-2011 at 06:14 PM
    PBW and OxyClean are cleansers. Iodophor is an iodine based sanitizer. These are not the same
    thing. You first have to clean the equipment before you can properly sanitize. Try using a mild
    dish deter...

    I added the lactose last night, 8 oz dissolved by boiling in 8 oz beer. It seemed to help
    balance the bitterness and made it drinkable. It also improved the body a little, but it still
    had little head...
