  • My mom got me a Mr. Beer for Christmas last year, I made one batch and knew I needed to do this...only better, so I did a partial mash, then went right into BIAB...certainly one of my favorite hobbies!

    My experience with the new lids is that they will blow off if you have a full-er-ish carboy
    and/or are running a high grav beer. I put my new lids on a belt sander and trimmed them down
    to fit inside ...

  • Posted in thread: Water profile questions on 02-25-2016 at 02:15 AM
    So I've had some efficiency problems for a couple of years now and I keep chalking it up to
    water but have been too cheap to go ahead and get a water test done. Found out that our city
    will email me a...

  • Posted in thread: Have a weird grayish slurry type in my brew on 02-25-2016 at 01:58 AM
    You'll be grand. I get that once in a while depending on the brew...seems to happen more when i
    do a step or decoction, so i'm pretty sure its just protein coagulation. You'll know when you
    crack the ...

    Does anyone rack into their kegs early to secondary and carb? Was just wondering if anyone does
    and if they've had any success and consistency with this process.Cheers!

    So as we move towards winter in the northland I usually either have to heat my beer room in my
    basement for adequate fermentation temps or hold off on brewing. I was wondering about wyeast
    2112 though...

  • Posted in thread: DIY Picnic "Stout" tap - concept on 11-12-2015 at 02:06 AM
    I just keep the keg about 3psi at 34*, then pour my pint about 3/4 of the way up or so, maybe
    2/3. I dunno something like that. Then I turn the regulator up to 20psi and just barely squeeze
    the picnic...

  • Posted in thread: Big Mouth Bubbler and PBW on 11-11-2015 at 06:21 PM
    So I jumped on the bandwagon with these plastic BMB's but have noticed that after I clean them
    with pbw, there is always a residue left behind. I have never had a problem with this with my
    glass carbo...

  • Posted in thread: Philco for Kegerator on 11-11-2015 at 04:26 PM
    So I have this old Philco G-925 that I've been using for a Kegerator but I just stash my co2
    and the keg with a picnic tap on it in there. I'd like to drill some holes in it so I can put
    taps on the d...

    Instead of using a bung I bought extra petcocks for my blow off tubes. Then I sealed them by
    trimming the gasket that comes with them to fit in the bung hole. I noticed that the bmb still
    seemed to le...
