    With the exception of messing up the terminologies and brew jargin, you did fine. I'm sure that
    you made beer. Congratulations. I would wait another week then draw a hydrometer sample...note
    the gravi...

    It would probably serve you best to download a brewing app. For example I often use my Brewers
    Friend app. Just type in the grain weights and the app will tell you how much water at what
    temp to achie...

  • Posted in thread: Big Mouth Bubbler- Solution to the bad lid seal problem on 02-02-2016 at 06:37 PM
    I experienced an issue with my 6.5 plastic Bubbler lid not sealing. I purchased a silicone
    baking mat. I traced the lid on it and cut some gaskets. It was cheap…about $12, I cut several
    gaskets and th...

  • Posted in thread: Any problems with scorched wort? on 01-31-2016 at 12:00 PM
    I have brewed 15 batches on my electric brewery without a single issue. Much like gas-fired
    kettles you need to use some commonsense. I have always kept the inside of my gas-fired boil
    kettle immacula...

  • Posted in thread: IPA recipe - thoughts? on 01-21-2016 at 09:39 AM
    IMO...IPA's are all about the hops.I would eliminate the Rye and Victory malts, reduce the C60
    to 8 ounces. I would use a combination of Maris Otter and American 2 row. Absolutely no brown
    sugar. Do n...

    IMO...fermenting Safale S-05 at 70 degrees is just fine. Before I built a fermentation fridge I
    fermented all my Ale's in the basement at 68 to 70 degrees. I also found that if I set the
    fermentor in ...

  • Posted in thread: using old yeast on 10-20-2015 at 11:30 PM
    I recently spent over $9 to try to revive a $8 package of yeast. I decided that in the future
    if the yeast is over a year old I won't waste my time.

    Do you have any issues running the 1500 watt element with the STC 1000? From what I've read,
    they're rated for 10 amps. 1500 watts at 120v is 12.5 amps. Seems like you'd fry it.The digital
    temp contro...
