    Painter's tape and a sharpie looped through the rubber handle and stuck to itself kinda like a
    little flag. I just write the style, date kegged, and alc% on it. Easy to read, takes no time
    to make and...

  • Posted in thread: Opinion needed on flow rates for Vorlauf and Fly sparge using a pump. on 07-29-2014 at 06:57 PM
    20 mins too fast, 25 mins could be just about right depending on Pre-boil volume at that
    amount. My system boils off 1.5 gallons per hour and I usually have about 5.5 - 5.75 gallons in
    my kettle at th...

    I use this type of setup with the only difference being I recirc the entire mash time through a
    HERMS coil in the HLT. This recirc (same as vorlauf at the end) is done at a pretty slow flow
    rate, mayb...

    Oh and I meant like add more sugar I don't think I will with double batch tho, it's going to be

    I put it in both my starters and my BK. I use 1/2 tsp in each and use it in the last 10-15
    mins, whenever I toss in the Whirfloc. I know I use a little too much in my starters but I am
    lazy and just u...

    We bought some when I was at the Whole Foods in NYC last Wed the 16th, first case right off the
    pallet in the back. I had 4 or 5 before continuing our vacation and left the rest with my
    buddy. I think...

  • Posted in thread: 5gal brew, 6gal carboy, no blowoff? on 07-10-2014 at 04:50 PM
    I just use a blow off on all my beers and then I don't have to worry about it. It takes
    essentially the same amount of time, effort, space etc so why not just use the blow off and
    save yourself any po...

    You have a flow meter set up on your mash tun?Dang.No, unfortunately not. I just use a nalgene
    bottle and a stop watch when I start lautering, it just takes a minute or two to get it dialed
    in and the...
