  • Posted in thread: Ferm Chamber Not Warm Enough on 01-17-2015 at 01:39 PM
    A hair dryer is not intended, and will not work well in a enclosed space, they have a thermo
    reset and when they get to hot it trips and kills the dryerIt is unclear to me why additional
    safety contro...

    I had asked opinions when I was putting it together about the hair dryer and got the fire thing
    and temp swings as an issue. I already have it wired in for a bulb heating element. I think
    it's a weak ...

    I would guess that this is a fire waiting to happen.You keep a lot of gasoline soaked rags in
    your fermentation chamber? I don't know, I guess I can understand your point, but compared to a
    lot of the...

    As I remember I couldn't really tell the difference between the two other than by color, which
    is why I never updated with results (also I got busy with grad school). I might consider trying
    this agai...

    It's not a problem as long as you don't have any contamination. I had an oktoberfest that sat
    in 80+ deg. F for over a week that was fine.

    Check your crush (have all 3 batches been ground at the same location?), check your mash pH,
    check the temperature after you add the sparge water. Do you wait 5 min after adding the sparge
    water? Do y...

    I don't think you can wait only 24 hours. Your beer probably isn't even cold yet. At 30 psi and
    room temp, I would shake back and forth (end to end) for about 1 minute, let it sit in the
    kegerator for...

  • Posted in thread: Oktoberfest Lagering Question on 08-26-2013 at 02:14 AM
    When you brew lager you need to do a primary fermentation around 50 deg. F until the
    fermentation is almost finished, then you need to check for diacetyl. Depending on whether you
    find diacetyl, you m...
