Posted in thread: Oxygenation times: batch size, stone type. on 06-02-2011 at 02:48 PM
Seems like more of the O2 will be absorbed in the larger volume because it has further to
travel before it's escapes (and it'll be less saturated overall as it absorbs). Just like if
you only place th...

My question is not how long to oxygenate five gallons; how long for 10 Gallons? Or more
generally, does twice as much wort require twice as much air stone time to absorb an equivalent
amount of oxygen...

how funny, another thread on this topic just bumped to the top. In it one poster wrote that for
his 11 gallon batch he oxygenated for 9 minutes to achieve 9ppm. That makes me think I have
been way und...

I've been oxygenating for a while but new questions have come up because (1) I've switched to

I've got my eye on a 14g. blichmann conical but I'm not sure it will fit in my

deep.Blichmann's website says 18.5 all...

My first year of brewing I only used liquid strains because Palmer and other books I had read

I did a double batch of oktoberfest last weekend, i filled up two six gallon better bottles.I
whirlpooled. The first bottle: all clean wort. The second bottle: some trub toward the end (no
Posted in thread: Possible to gain 15 pts. eff. by increasing to 12 gallons? on 06-28-2010 at 04:20 PM
I brewed my second 12 gallon batch on saturday. It was supposed to be a special bitter (1.050).
I did everything as usual, but i had my intended OG at the *beginning* of the boil, i.e., I

Posted in thread: WLP001 vs. US-05 on 06-25-2010 at 04:37 PM

what is more problematic, the yeast cake is not compact, and on multiple occasions I have ended
up with ...
