  • I brewed in University with extract kits (tin cans). Tried to do a stove top all grain but was quickly discouraged. After graduation I didn't brew for a couple years. Then I decided to start back up but with higher standards. Quickly I started looking to all grain more seriously. Dove in head first and haven't looked back. Been all grain brewing for 4 months now and brewed over 140 gallons of beer. Currently on batch #24.

    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
    Digi-Key (+8...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Pitched starter late, yeast dead on 07-12-2010 at 02:09 PM
    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Long term beer storage? on 07-10-2010 at 06:00 AM
    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, ...

  • Posted in thread: Pitched starter late, yeast dead on 07-10-2010 at 05:44 AM
    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. ...

  • Posted in thread: Secondary temp on 07-09-2010 at 10:04 PM
    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
    detectable s...
