Posted in thread: Anaheim Scientific pH Meter (P771) on 04-26-2013 at 08:13 PM
Just got my new pH meter today. An Anaheim Scientific pH meter (P771). It was kind of a snap
decision, but it looks great and came with storage, and calibration buffer solutions. $69 from

Still using a turkey deep fryer burner with a converted keg to do 12 gallon boils. Best 60$ I
ever spend. Got me: burner, aluminum pot, thermometer and various other nick nacks. I hope to
get a bigger...

are you suppose to prime when you transfer to secondary or wait til you bottle?Definitely wait.
If you dump sugar in in secondary, the yeast will just eat it up before you bottle and you'll
end up wit...

Yeah, seriously. Good work man. I was going to suggest making a starter to keep the yeast
active, but you sounded tired and it usually takes me an hour or more to make a starter. Lets
hear it for a de...

BTW: it's a 1-gallon experimental batch, and OG was only 1.055 or so. For these little test
batches I've been trying to use harvested bottle yeast since it's free and I don't need
much.Haha, ok, that ...

Ditto. Best way to store beer is probably a well sanitized keg at fridge temps. If you're
looking to age beer, then I would go with a well sanitized bottle at 55f or so. When you're
looking to go long...

Yikes, that's a problem indeed! If you hadn't rehydrated the yeast, I would definitely say
leave it until morning. Given the choice between letting my wort sit over night and pitching at
a high temp, ...

How many times did you prop up that starter? Making a 1L starter off the dregs of a bottle
isn't going to get you a proper pitch rate. You need at least 100ml of yeast slurry to pitch.
And if you brew...

Yikes! This whole time I thought my beer tasted delicious...but its been doomed all
along!Obviously staling happens, but your concerns are based on hyperbole and not reality at
the homebrewing level. ...

Staling reactions happen all the time, everywhere. After the ferment is done it's a race to
keep your beer from going stale. Properly packaged and cooled, your beer can last years with no
