  • Posted in thread: opinions on star-san's pH stabilizer? on 04-16-2008 at 12:21 AM
    OK guys, I have a question regarding the theory of "its the mash and not the water." I
    understand that the grain lowers the pH of the mash, but what happens when you start to
    sparge?I batch sparge, so...

  • Posted in thread: Kolsch Yeast? on 04-16-2008 at 12:08 AM
    I second the fact that Koelsch yeasts are messy and stink like hell. To date the only time I've
    ever had a blowout was using Koelsch yeast. Granted that back then I was fermenting in my
    kitchen pantry...

  • Posted in thread: Why didn't someone tell me sooner on 04-15-2008 at 11:55 PM
    So here's the story...I've been brewing for about 4 years now, and from the start I've been
    trying to get that grain/barley flavor in my beer. It's a subtle flavor that can be found in
    almost every co...

  • Posted in thread: AG system redesign- looking for inputs on 04-06-2008 at 03:22 PM
    I decided to skip the 3 tier setup and start out with a single tier HERMS system. I can't say
    whether or not it improved my efficiency, but definitely slowed me down for the first two
    batches.Here are...

  • Posted in thread: Hop absorption & possible reuse? on 03-16-2008 at 11:49 PM
    After brewing a 10 gallon batch this afternoon I realized that whole leaf hops absorb a lot of
    wort...3 quarts in my case. I used 6 oz of plugs to brew this beer, which is not my normal
    method, but my...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone know where the Promash people are? on 03-11-2008 at 08:16 PM
    Thanks for the update. I will gladly wait for it since I loved the trial version. Now that I
    know what's happening I feel like an ass for expecting a quick turnaround.-Matt

    I ordered the software on 3/8, and I have not been contacted or emailed. I tried calling them
    for the last 2 days and all I get is a message saying "please call back at a later time."Are
    they out of b...

  • Posted in thread: Temp Herms Set-up on 02-03-2008 at 03:51 AM
    I made my first all grain batch last weekend using a setup very similar to yours. I can confirm
    that you are unlikely to get get full pump flow through the grain bed, unless you are really
    moving the ...

  • Posted in thread: CFC only getting wort down to 95 on 09-27-2007 at 06:06 PM
    I would recommend using a low flow through the pre-chiller and CFC. This gives the water more
    contact time with both the ice bath and the hot wort in your CFC.I don't have a CFC, but I do
    use a pre-ch...
