    Tried brewing yesterday because temps were in the low 50s and thought I could run my wort
    chiller off of the garden hose w/o problems. Boy was I wrong. After brewing 15 gallons of
    higher gravity stout...

    These 15 gallons of stout were to be made mainly for my wife who promised me some special
    appreciation time for making this happen. She is the main packer fan in the house so the rest
    of the day just ...

    Looking forward to brewing this. Glad we got the details straighted out. Is the MO amount the
    only part of the grain bill that I need to adjust? I do 6 gal batches.My original grain bill
    was for 5 gal...

    In your OP you said you used 10 lbs of MO but the recipe shows 20 lbs. The total grain bill is
    28.5 lbs of grain!This is the recipe for 10 gallons when my original was just 5 gallons. My
    wife and frie...

    How did that happen? Did the coil freeze with water inside? I always worry about that happening
    to me. I keep my stuff in the garage all winter.The temps in the garage have dipped below 32 F
    a few tim...

    That looks like a killer recipe. I have a stout I've been making over and over again for years
    and I've been looking for something different to mix it up. I think I have to brew this recipe
    because it...

  • Posted in thread: Help me fix my busted wort chiller on 12-14-2014 at 11:12 PM
    Something was creating a blockage in my wort chiller today and one of the coils busted. I am
    not sure if it was ice or something else. I had the chiller stored in my attached garage and
    the temps had ...

    Brewed this again today and used up the last of my maris otter. Unfortunately, a coil in my
    wort chiller burst open that ruined the whole batch. Now I am out of maris otter. Can anyone
    suggest another...

    Damn. That sucks (well, not the part about the packers, but the rest of it). I have had a few
    end in disaster over the years too, and it really is a downer - and the wasted day is a big
    part of it for...
