  • Posted in thread: When to rack into secondary? on 04-09-2012 at 07:54 PM
    I think it's a style issue. Do it of you want to. I just moved a Belgian I've had in primary
    for a month to a secondary, but only because I thought it might help clearing it up. I just
    popped the firs...

  • Posted in thread: Blowoff valve for high gravity beers on 04-09-2012 at 06:45 PM
    I almost never crash my car, but I always wear a seatbelt. Using a blowoff tube for the first
    active days of fermentation is very cheap insurance. Some people just leave it on for the
    entire process -...

    Is it typical to have to install a blowoff assembly with higher gravity beers? I've made a
    tripel and an IPA that both had OG of 1.060. Each had about a gallon of headspace and still
    needed the assemb...

    Sounds good! I tried a recent brew a little early as well. Turned out fine and will probably be
    better in a few weeks.

  • Posted in thread: Belgian tripel still bubbling... on 04-02-2012 at 06:47 PM
    I have a NB Belgian tripel that has been bubbling away for a little over two weeks now.
    Although its slowed down a bit this morning, is this normal? How long should I wait before
    racking to secondary ...

  • Posted in thread: Deciding between 5g and 10g mash tun on 03-27-2012 at 07:45 PM
    I went to all-grain this year, and like you wasn't sure what size to build my mash tun out of.
    After lots of research and thinking I decided on the 5 gallon round cooler set up. I'm two
    batches into a...

    We use a 10 Gallon Rubbermaid cooler and now that I know more I would have gotten a 12-13
    gallon rectangular cooler. First off, they are a bit cheaper. Secondly, they are bigger so you
    won't run into ...

    The beverage coolers are nice, but a rectangular one works just as well IMO. They tend to be
    cheaper to buy and sometimes even free off Craigslist. I had one laying around unused and built
    it super ch...

    Thanks for all the tips guys. It helps out a lot. I'll be scouring around for some 10 gal
    coolers.

    It should be okay. As long as it wasn't anything prolonged.
