    In addition to a refractometer for quicker readings of sparge run-off, acidifiying your sparge
    water to 6.0 or slightly below will reduce the chance of leeching tannins from the mash when
    you get down...

    Gravity and flavor/mouthfeel perception are not linearly linked. It can still taste dry at
    1.019 sometimes. Try the beano and see what it does. You can always blend back in a beer with a
    bigger body l...

    You're going to want to run some a barokleen and acid cycle through that barrel before you use
    it. If it's a wine barrel you may want to burn a sulphur stick. If it's a spirits barrel, that
    is not a g...

    I saw that one.Did you have to buy anything to connect the IC hose to the pump? I see it comes

    bit of press...

    with 10 lbs of grain. Sparge took about 1.5 hours. The pumpkin doesn't clump, it gums up
    everything. a lb or...

    It's a lot, but not unheard of. I have a guinness clone that is about 15% roasted barley. I
    thought that was too much, but turns out it's not.

    like a charm and can't beat the price.

    I went there once a while back. Interesting basement. I tend to use the Emporium for yeast and
    specialty grains, but get most of my stuff online as bulk grains and hops, even with shipping,
    tend to be...

    I've been using just plain table sugar in place of clear candi syrup and haven't noticed a
    difference. About 11 oz of dry sugar per pound of liquid candi. I run some wort into a small
    pot, dissolve th...
