    I've been carbonating beer in growlers for years. Don't know why so many people say its unsafe.
    Growlers are designed to hold carbonated beer. Whether its carbonated already (eg. filled at a
    brewery) ...

    Thanks for everyone who has contributed to this forum. It takes a while to digest all the
    information. I'm planning to try a clone at this and tried to suck in all the information I
    could about this r...

    I'd give that a shot. Just a tiny bit of calcium chloride might do a fair amount. That and
    maybe dropping that flame out addition in a few minutes before flame out might help too.I tried
    adding CaCl t...

    Azazel,The additions to the distilled water were gypsum only - on the order of 4 grams for the
    batch. I'll probably trying dosing a glass with some calcium chloride to see if that improves
    the flavor ...

    Personally, I'm debating dropping flameouts from my IPA process. If I want isomerization and
    flavor, I'll boil. If I want aroma, I'll hop-stand at 160-170F and dry hop. Flameouts seem like
    an ineffici...

    Flameout is just what it says ... when you turn the flame out. What other people are describing
    is a hop-stand. In either case you won't be getting any significant bittering from the late
    hops - isome...

    Well, I'm getting closer at making a decent IPA. My last attempt was a Pliny the Elder clone
    using Vinnie's original posted recipe. Bitterness is there as well as aroma, but the flavor
    just wasn't the...

    I will say that soldering stainless steel is a lot trickier than soldering copper. Copper seems
    to be more forgiving. Keep the metal clean, use some flux, and heat the copper until solder
    flows. I can...

    Perhaps the lack of comments is because not as many folks ferment in a sanke???I don't think
    drilling two holes and soldering counts as advanced building skills. The soldering does take a
    little pract...
