Posted in thread: Tape to label carboys, kegs, etc. Best kind? on 07-29-2015 at 02:14 AM
I use white or yellow electrical tape. I wrap it around the handle of buckets and jugs, around
the corny keg lid bale, and all the way around bottles. Marking is just a black sharpie. The

154 is relatively high, 10% crystal, and unknown fermentability of extract could mean you're
done. I'd just let it sit bother week. You might get another point or two. But I'd go ahead and

If it was at 68 early and then dropped to 62, that could have caused the yeast to drop out. If
you have a way to warm it up and hold it at 68, that may help reactivate them to finish it off.

I suspect your super thin mash of just adjuncts caused over extraction of the roasted malt
husks. Given time, this will settle out some. Whether or not you had enough diastatic power for
Posted in thread: Sweetness from hopbursting? on 07-09-2015 at 02:31 AM
I've had that as well, and believe it came from an insufficient start of boil bittering charge
to balance out the malt. You definitely get bitterness from the hot steep or whirlpool, but I

At 8% ABV nobody will complain after the first one.
Posted in thread: Conical boil kettle…….. on 07-05-2015 at 07:18 PM
If I do greater than an 8 gallon batch, I boil in my 50L conical using a heat stick suspended
down the center. Works well. I use a pump to circulate through a chiller. One drawback is the
Posted in thread: Beer gun but no Co2 splitter on 07-05-2015 at 03:52 PM
That should work fine. The splitter is simply to supply CO2 to the keg for pushing the beer out
and also enable the bottle purging function on the beer gun with only one gas supply.
Posted in thread: Expiration date on pumpkin beer? on 07-05-2015 at 03:45 PM
If sanitation is good and oxygen was kept at bay, I don't see why it wouldn't last. The extra
time probably also gave time for the spice flavors to meld too. I'm assuming it was lowly
hopped which als...
