I normally avoid bleach in brewing, but in this case I could see that it might be worthwhile.
Just make sure you rinse the hell out of the carboy several times to be sure it's all gone.You
Posted in thread: Dry hop necessary if over 100 IBU's???? on 12-17-2013 at 04:13 PM
I understand what contributes to bitterness and aroma. I just can't fathom what 1oz of dry hops
would do to a beer that's over 100 IBU's. In the last 15, 10, 5, and 0 minutes of the boil I
will be add...

pH and tannins? Wow. I thought I would have read this somewhere by now. Interesting.Well as I

Ok well digi vs. analog is a much bigger difference between the two than I thought. Not that
digital is always the be-all and end-all, but the stuff I've read from several respected
sources (yourself ...

Anybody ever use Fermcap-AT. It's supposed to be a silicone free product that uses canola oil
instead. It meets the FDA guidelines for not needing filtration (unlike Fermcap-s).Yep, that's
what I use ...

Yes, another pH meter thread. Sorry all, I couldn't find quite what I was looking for by
searching the forum. In looking at the MW101 vs the MW102, it appears that the difference
between the two is:- ...
