For me, it's just another "session IPA" Which is category of beer I really don't care for. Most
taste like extremely bitter hop water. After tasting a bunch of different commercial examples,
I gave up...

I've had that beer many times, and the aroma is huge. It's dry hopped at levels usually
reserved for double IPAs, so if you're getting no aroma, something is off. As far as varieties,
it's mostly Citr...

AJ, Martin, we are all very lucky to have such valuable, generous resources. Thank you. I for
one would be far behind as a brewer than I am now if you guys weren't so willing to share your

I'm using Mr. Malty for my first repitch of yeast. I went through several rinses since the

I highly doubt it. Unless your water dept is in the middle of flushing their system, the tap
water doesn't contain enough chlorine that would make rinsing with it a problem. You made no
mention of usi...

No, I don't think so. There would be so little water in there relative to the amount of beer.
Now if you clean the kegs with a chlorine based cleaner and don't completely wash that out the

If one were to carefully treat their brewing and sparge water with campden tablets but clean
kegs that the fermented beer was going into with water that wasn't treated with campden
tablets, could that...

I have two functional concerns that may end up being a big deal. First, can we batch sparge in
this unit? Second, I know not many people are too concerned about hot side aeration, but that's
a lot of ...
