  • Posted in thread: Berliner Suggestions? on 03-20-2015 at 01:41 PM
    I'm using 3.8% acid malt to bring the estimated mash pH to ~5.4 (room temp). I'm then going to
    use an ounce or so of acid malt with a cup of yogurt to inoculate the wort. The last time I
    tried BW I ju...

    I'm teeing up another BW and found the below article quite educational. My first was soured
    with lacto cultured from 2-row barley. It turned out good enough to get me a bronze (3/9)
    medal. It was too ...

    I hose off the inside, especially the element, and then check it with my fingers to make sure
    there is no crusty buildup. I don't want to risk scorched wort.

    I just drop my CFC right in at 15 minutes and let it fly. I've done 20-30 brews this way with
    the same element with no troubles. She does spit a bit when I drop it in, but I know that so I
    can deal wi...

    Constant recirculation improved my mash efficiency by ~10% (72%-82%) for my eBiaB setup. The
    ability to mash out had to help as well. I have hit 85% if I crushed the grains fine with my
    Corona mill, b...

    I have a private well and septic system, so it just goes back into the ground where it came
    from to be used again. :)Watering the grass, garden, trees, and other plants would be the
    best/easiest solut...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone try BRY-97 yet on 02-05-2015 at 01:25 PM
    Going to brew 6 gallons of pale ale with an OG of 1.059. Do i need to pitch 1 or 2 packs of
    bry-97?You can pitch one packet, but be prepared for a slight (24-48 hour) delay for krausen to
    form. I woul...

    BierMuncher's Centennial Blonde. Easily G2G in 2-3 weeks and great tasting.

  • Posted in thread: Kolsch Yeast Fermentation Time on 12-23-2014 at 02:07 PM
    Didn't hear if you made a starter or not. For beers fermented cooler you always want to make
    large starters. I make a decanted 3 qt starter for 2565 (top 2 or 3 yeast for me). I ferment at
    58 for 7-8 ...

  • Posted in thread: Counterflow vs plate chiller efficiency? on 12-23-2014 at 01:51 PM
    I understand that the OP is probably looking for a self-contained chiller, but I have to throw
    this out there as an efficiency marker. I have a 100' 3/8" copper coil immersion chiller. My
    well water i...
