I have a 4-tapper made out of an old wooden Corona cooler. No coils or cold plate, just the
excess beer line to get them to 12' and a 20# bag of ice. At a festival or event, you're
pouring enough that...

I can do up to 40g in primary, up to 60 in secondary, and I have 100g worth of corneys. But
generally, I have 20 in primary, 20 in secondary, and however much I am doing for the next
festival in kegs.

Of the 4, Mosaic is the outlier in terms of flavor and aroma, giving it the most instantly

bourbon forced i...

A scientist with a thermometer knows the temperature. A scientist with two thermometers hasn't
a clue.Seriously...I use an instant-read analog dial meat thermometer from Kroger. Cheap and

Not sure how much you put into it, but I have considerably less than $1k in my DIY HERMs. FYI.
Posted in thread: Best hops for APA and IPA? on 07-05-2016 at 11:53 PM
I'm a little surprised cascade hops have come up as much as they have. I like the flavor but
from my experience they were very mild compared to chinook or citra. Is that normal?I think
most people con...

I was going to turn the 3lbs of blackberry into purée. I was under the assumption that purée
would add more flavor.I could be wrong!Does purée beat whole fruit?You'll get more flavor from
the puree be...

It depends on what your goals for the beer are. If you want a big citrusy hop bomb of an IPA,
