    Use the high temp - there's probably not much difference in needed sugar between 76 and 82.
    Like someone mentioned earlier, once the beer is warmed up, the CO2 is gone. It doesn't come
    back when you c...

    I'm local - I work by LAX. When can we meet? Does today work for you?

    Sieve182,I think Microbus is right - if you want to use real fruit but don't want red, you
    might try golden raspberries. 377100

    Don't worry about the negative bicarbonate. You are correct - it's the pH that counts.

  • Posted in thread: StarSan Bottle Measuring Thing on 10-25-2016 at 12:05 AM
    The only thing I DON'T like about the StarSan bottle is that once you get about half empty,
    from there on out you gotta squeeze the HOLY-HELL out of it to fill the chamber.I never had

    So, here's a crazy idea for those that are thinking that CO2 purity may be causing their kegged
    beers to stale. What if you loaded a canister with oxygen scavenging packets (the food safe
    kind used fo...

    inkman15,You might try bottling from a keg with a bottling gun. Go ahead and keg and force carb
    your IPAs. Then use a bottling gun to fill bottles. The bottling gun lets you flush the bottles
    with CO2...

    How are the handles on the concord? They look like they could pop off, and I read on ebay that
    they leak near the bottom. Maybe it's just my crappy vision.Looks pretty solid to me - this is
    my 15 gall...

    Well, given the pH ranges that he mentions in his talk, I'd say those are at mash temps. But
    since he didn't say mash temps, I can't be certain. Brew the same beer at two different pH and
    let us know ...

    ToddStark,Check out the tri-clad Concord kettles. I'd guess that the heavier bottom would stay
    more flat than thin metal would on a glass stove top. Plus you're likely to end up with less
    scorch marks...
