    Hey all, I'm planning on making my first Bock (Angel Wings from Brewing Classic Styles). I made
    a 3-step lager starter (1.75L per step) using WLP833. After the 3rd step, the flask went into
    the fridge...

  • Posted in thread: When to raise ale fermentation temperature on 08-11-2013 at 01:28 PM
    So I have agreed to brew gift beers for out–of–town guests attending our wedding this fall. So
    far I've brewed 2 of 4, 5gal batches of a pumpkin ale (OG = 1.055). The rate limiting factor in
    productio...

    Or do something like this; the entire collar lifts up. A lot of people do that. Also, I
    insulated the collar- not sure if the wood alone would be efficient.I like the look of this, a
    couple of questio...

    Hey All! I just picked up a Frigidaire "Commercial" (model ffc0723dw5) chest freezer from
    craigslist and am about to order a 2-stage Ranco controller. The freezer was a steal but the
    inside dimensions...

    I happen to be a expert on crushes and all I will say is never let your wife find out :D Hah,
    that made my morning. More than anything, I was skeptical about the 0.045" factory setting. It
    seemed like...

    After dealing with variable crush quality from various suppliers, I finally bit the bullet and
    went in on a MM2. I just ran ~4lbs of 2-row through it to get the burrs off and play with the
    gap setting...

    Thanks for the advice. I've just been using Northern Brewer's AG recipes which (I think) are
    calculated for 75% efficiency and I've been at the low end of that for larger beers like
    Denny's Rye IPA. I...

    I should mention that I'm not trying to hit efficiencies over 80%. I just want to get into the
    75-80% range more consistently with bigger beers

  • Posted in thread: Fly sparging question: mash thickness and mash out water additions on 05-22-2013 at 02:27 PM
    It's been about 70-75%. 3 of the 7 batches I've done have missed the target OG (efficiencies

    I've got 7 AG batches under my belt at this point and I'm getting my efficency pretty well
    dialed in (just bought a grain mill to improve consistency, retailer crush has been all over
    the place). At t...
