  • 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
    that problem. I ...

    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...

    TexasWine,I've been looking forward to an unbiased review of the LODO process - thanks for
    that. I pretty much gave up on the germanbrewing thread. I really disliked the folks saying
    that if you didn'...

    Can you fill a different container with the same water - perhaps a glass jar? Let it sit in the
    jar for the same amount of time and see what your meter reads in the end. Maybe do two jars -
    one sealed...

    Anybody? Does grain contribute any sulfate or do I get sulfate only from water or salt
    additions? What about chloride? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Mike,The Blichmann Burner showed up today - box was pretty banged up, but your wrapping held up
    well. And thanks for the free rolls of paper towel. They served their purpose!I assembled it
    and fired i...
