    Wow, so many answers :) thanks guys (and girls, if any) I should have mentioned earlier that I

    know better n...

    I have a question: Since fermentation produces heat how are you going to keep your wort cool in
    an insulated fermenter?

  • Posted in thread: Siphon or just dump it in? on 10-15-2013 at 01:37 AM
    Dumping the wort in thru a strainer will mix oxygen into the wort...which is a good thing
    before fermentation.

    It makes good beer but takes a long time to clear.

    Not to quibble, but I seriously doubt the breweries cap with antique bench cappers. They also
    do not refill and cap twist off bottles. They get new bottles and caps and they run through
    very expensive...

    Well it could be 2005, or newer but DME keeps well. I found a can of LME about that age in my
    garage. It looked more like a tin football than a can. I didn't have the courage to open it, i
    donated it ...

    That's not the production date, it's the copyright date for the label. The little c in a circle
    is a dead giveaway.

    I cap some screw cap bottles with two old bench cappers with no problems.

    Fermenting a 1 gallon recipe in a 5 gallon bucket is not a good idea, too much head space. for
    a 1 gallon recipe a 2 gallon bucket is better.
