Posted in thread: Fermentation Temperature Control on 05-01-2015 at 11:54 PM
I think there's been tests that show ~1 degree difference between the exterior of a fermenter
(taken from say, a brewmometer or well insulated thermal probe) compared to the internal
temperature. The ...
Posted in thread: How to succeed at sour mash? on 05-01-2015 at 11:41 PM
I've done a couple and what I'll tell you is that it's slightly different from a typical sour.
It tends to be really "clean" in nature, not "funky" like a lot of sours are. That said, it is
a quick wa...
Posted in thread: Coopers Ginger Beer fermentation signs on 05-01-2015 at 10:03 PM
It sounds to me like it's starting to kick off, based on the bubbles you're seeing. As the
yeast grow, fermentation will become more and more noticeable until it's entirely obvious. It
will usually lo...
Posted in thread: Confession Time on 05-01-2015 at 01:45 AM
I've made plenty of mistakes in my days of brewing, but I finally have a real confession.I
built the current iteration of my 10G brewery around 3 years ago. For the first time since,
I've actually tak...
Posted in thread: keg... cold crash and gelatin on 04-30-2015 at 05:23 AM
Welcome! You can use gelatin in either primary/secondary or in the keg, but both need to be
cold for it to work well. The idea with using it in primary/secondary is you don't transfer the
stuff to the...
Posted in thread: Stir plate question for 10 gallon batches on 04-30-2015 at 03:29 AM
I didn't specifically seek out a special stirplate that could handle 5L vs. 2L, I just went
with a solid dude I heard about on here that runs stirstarters.com. Been super happy and I've
done 4L starte...
Posted in thread: Can I use bottle caps that were previously sanitized? on 04-29-2015 at 07:55 PM
I almost always, without fail, have more caps soaked in sanitizer than I use on bottling day. I
always just put 'em back away and pull them out when needed. Never had a problem with either
regular or ...
Posted in thread: Stuck Before I Start on 04-29-2015 at 07:37 PM
I think that's a smart choice. If BIAB had been a pioneered option when I was learning to brew,
I would have done that long before I switched to all grain. Extract does have a benefit of
being easy on...
Posted in thread: 25% Off Site Wide - Cheers to Big Brew 2015! on 04-29-2015 at 07:21 PM
I think it's expired. The post was from 4/23, last week...so Sunday would have been 4/26...or
three days ago. Hope that helps!
Posted in thread: STC-1000 vs Johnson Temp Control on 04-27-2015 at 10:48 PM
I think your assessment is correct. It's not a particularly complicated circuit, however, and
there's plenty of diagrams out there that show you things like "put wire nut here" etc. I've
built six of ...
