    Sorry, that was unclear. By boil, I meant boil some water with the ginger before adding it to
    primary (something I read in another thread).Sounds good otherwise. I think I'll experiment
    with my next b...

    Resurrecting an old thread. SWMBO just came home raving about Williams Dragon's Breath Cider,
    which is an apple ginger. Any consensus on how much to add to get a strong ginger flavor?
    Should I add it ...

    AlfA01, congrats! Hopefully your troubleshooting process was faster than my own. I ripped apart
    and rebuilt by STC-box for 3 hours before figuring out the compressor delay bit. Doh!

    Expansion potential for burner #3 would be my guess.

    12401 + 5.5g of imperial CAP=12406.5

    I would disagree Robert on the sparge temperature. Sugar solutions get more viscous the warmer
    they are. Cold water will leave sugars behind, stuck to the grains/husks. If you're having low
    efficiency...

    11,151 + 5.5g Irish red= 11,156.5

    If you brewed it per the original recipe which calls for 12oz of 500L roasted barley, just back
    it off a little bit. I do 5-6 gallon batches and only use 2-3oz of roasted barley. In other
    words, I do ...

    From the pictures (esp the last one) they look like white persistent bubbles, which is bad.
    Standard infection response: Assuming it tastes good, rack from under it and drink fast. Keg,
    don't bottle, ...
