  • Posted in thread: Worth cleaning out? Or risk not worth reward? on 07-04-2013 at 07:45 PM
    This isn't 100% the same thing, but I once picked up some ancient Coca-Cola bottles that were
    laying out in the woods, partially buried and half-full of dirt and moss. I can't remember
    exactly what I ...

    When you have to go out of your way to get something, the people who manage to find it tend to
    be the ones that went looking for it.

  • Posted in thread: 110V for 10 Gallon Batches - Possible? on 06-19-2013 at 04:00 AM
    Just remember -- every element you use, is an element you will have to clean! Not that it's
    difficult or anything, but having to wash 3 of 'em seems like something that would get old
    quickly.As for wa...

    I've been boiling my batches using a 5500W element from Home Depot with no problems. It is one
    of the fold-back types, sold as LWD, but I would guess it's still a pretty high watt density
    when the hea...

    Black is very likely to be the minus side. Red and yellow are probably the 5 and 12V, but which
    is which could definitely go either way. You do want to be sure you use the right one, because
    you can a...

  • Posted in thread: Expert help needed with my fungal infection! on 06-11-2013 at 03:22 AM
    That looks like it could be yeast, and doesn't look like any infection I know of, so I'm gonna
    go ahead and vote "yeast".What's it taste like? Does it have the amount of carbonation you

  • Posted in thread: Forgot the OG, should I risk taking a Hydrometer reading? on 06-11-2013 at 02:58 AM
    For your second batch, I would say you should probably take a gravity reading, at least at
    bottling time. That will help you match up what you're seeing, with what you know about
    fermentation.Some of ...

  • Posted in thread: Most annoying response when you tell someone you're a homebrewer? on 05-31-2013 at 02:42 AM
    For some reason, a lot of the ones I get seem to involve my bathtub?One day, I'm going to build
    a manifold to fit my tub and actually mash a batch in it, just for these folks! :D

  • Posted in thread: Newb...2 elements 1 ssr, where did i go wrong? {help} on 04-17-2013 at 12:12 AM
    Not sure how that SSR was rated, but a lot of things are not actually usable right up to their
    rating, because that requires you to keep the case of the device at room temperature.An 80A SSR
    (and a br...

    And four more pics..-The rear of the brew cart. The valves allow the plate chiller to be
    bypassed during mash, used for chilling, and flushed forward and in reverse for cleaning. In
    the last 15 minute...
