    I tried to replicate the citric acid passivation process outlined in this document.
    definitely changed the appearance of the etching, but not to degrade visibility. I haven't seen
    any issues with ru...

    My experience has been that measuring the surrounding air beside a carboy, with a fan running,
    and a reasonably wide hysteresis, holds the beer temp the most constant. Anymore I just dangle
    it close, ...

    I seem to be having trouble getting the etching to work on my pot. I have the circuit set up
    correctly (tested on a spoon), but I'm not getting any effect on my kettle. I had always
    thought my kettle ...

    I have a 12 year old daughter who's tried all kinds of hazardous things with supervision. Yes,
    keep the level of hazard in perspective; don't blow it out of proportion. It's a yucky chemical
    solution,...

    when i asked the supervisor at michaels, she showed me her stencil section. however, it wasn't
    in that section. there's a glass etching section that's somewhere else in the store. that's
    where i found...

    Also, I will add the sharpie wasn't the best tool for making my initial marks because if you
    accidently touched the water it basically stopped working. If I do another pot I'll find
    something else to ...

  • Posted in thread: Pepsi Can Fridge Converted Into a Fermentation Cooler on 03-03-2014 at 02:18 AM
    I did the same thing with an aquafina chiller. They're all the same brand or two. It works
    brilliant, but I can only lager at 34 F unless I bypass the thermostat.I highly recommend a
    brew hauler or di...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling partial batch and kegging the rest on 02-16-2014 at 04:55 AM
    I do it all the time. I also do the thing people say not to and add sugar directly to the
    bottle. If I bulk prime, I do it in a 1 gallon jug, and use an auto siphon to bottle. More
    often than not I go...
