    I picked up a 1/4"->1/8" adapter from Amazon ( and purchased the Blichmann conversion kit,
    along with a quick-disconnect extension hose, and hooked everything up; all the pieces connect
    up appropriat...

    Thanks! That's super helpful. It looks like my SQ14 is 1/8" NPT, so I'll likely just get the
    1/4" FNPT to 1/8" MNPT adapter and the Blichmann part. It looks like it will be super easy to
    switch out (b...

    I have a SQ14 and just realized there's a natural gas hookup on the corner of my deck. Can
    anybody who's converted their SQ14 confirm what parts they used, and if it required any
    drilling? There's a l...

    1# Breiss Black Prince Debittered Roasted BarleyThat's actually your biggest substitution.
    BlackPrinz is a de-bittered malt, which won't give you the same intense roasty flavor as normal

    I'd always recommend at least a 75-minute boil if not 90 when you're using a lot of Pilsner
    malt, regardless of where it comes from.I haven't noticed any DMS in particular, but I always
    do a long boil...

    I've made a Dortmunder-type beer with WLP029 and it came out tasting very much like a Czech
    Pils. I used Hallertauer instead of Saaz, but other than that the recipe was quite similar
    (although my orig...

    A Kolsch is also a great choice.

    Sounds like you're looking for Cream of Three Crops. I've never made it, but it's supposed to
    be very good.

    Could be yeast or tannin haze. How did you treat your water? If you mashed at too high a pH you
    could have extracted lots of tannins.

  • Posted in thread: Please explain pH and Bru'n Water on 02-04-2015 at 07:45 PM
    That seems to refer to acidification of *sparge* water, not acidification of water for the
    mash. I'm no water expert, but I think you may still need to acidify your strike water.
