I'd think that keeping your fermenter in a water bath should be standard practice: even if you
don't need to keep the temp down with ice, at least the water has a higher specific heat that
air so that...
Posted in thread: How do you clean your MLT after brewing? on 03-07-2008 at 02:32 AM
I just dump the grains out back/add it to the compost. It's all good from there.As for the
cleaning, I too just spray it down to get all the husks out of there and then give it a mild
wash with a spon...

So my 2nd AG didn't go so well. I thought it had, but it has been tasting very sub-par for
weeks now and I think I've figured it out: I just kegged up a Southern English Brown and it was
spot on. Whil...

I've found myself working on my amber recipe. It's in V3.0 right now as I'm still trying to
nail down the recipe flat. Then I'll stick with it and work on consistency. For the most part I
try to brew ...

So my schedule is really busy these days, but I still need to brew. Getting up early to do a
6am brew today wasn't the best option considering I went to bed at 4, and I don't have a solid
5 hour block...

Loss of beer is why I brew 5.5 gallon batches every time these days. By the time I get into
secondary I don't need to worry about headroom and I always get a nice full keg at the end of

A quick couple: hi-flange hubs are screaming fixie. Do you ride a lot? I'm currently in LA
(missing my hometown Portland, OR more and more everyday, for obvious reasons) and my
fixed-gear is the only...

I had a great brew morning yesterday before class. Had to get up early to heat the strike water
but everything went swimmingly and I still made it to my lecture.Anyway, I brewed a stout and

So I've tried my hand at this recipe too (big surprise). Anyway, it's sitting in the keg now
and it is a bit hazy and yeasty tasting. How long does it usually take for all the yeast to
settle out so I...

I chopped up my braid on my first AG too. It still had some larger holes in it when I brewed
next. But I just recirculated a lot and it seems to have turned out fine. I figure that the
holes in the br...
