    4 Wheels. I built a wood stove with 3 wheels and it can get tippy when moving it.

  • Posted in thread: thinking about trying beano for a junk beer on 11-15-2007 at 05:39 PM
    Beano IS alpha amylase, from asparagus I believe. Just a different package for a different
    purpose.From what I read, corn was mashed up and pressed into patties in the mouth, giving it
    the protein sha...

    It turns out I was using a busted thermometer for about a year and my mash was actually done
    18-20F LOWER than I thought. So this whole time the enzyme action was all one-sided (beta I
    think). I could...

    I brew 3 gallon batches with a 4 gallon pot. It's enough to make a case, and small enough that
    I don't have to drink a lot of so-so experiments.

    I've added it to a batch and it definately has an extra bite to it. Don't use a ton though, I

    I'm in Madison and my water is pretty similar:Ca=61Mg=47Na= 3SO4=9Cl= low (less than
    10)HCO3=344With lower numbers it's easier for your mash to control the pH. If I'm brewing
    something lighter I boil ...

    What about making a sleeve over the smooth roller, like cheese cloth or silicone? Duct tape?
    the non-sticky side may be sticky about a condom? The non-lubricated ones.I'd try
    this but I don...

  • Posted in thread: Water Cemistry: Where to find Calcium Carbonate? on 01-15-2007 at 04:38 PM
    Any idea where one might find that? You could try sodium bicarbonate (baking soda). There might
    be a slight taste difference but I doubt you'd notice in a stout. Don't use too much, and don't
    boil the...
