Posted in thread: Recipe Request: Asahi Black (Kuronama) Clone on 01-25-2013 at 12:09 AM
I really really enjoy this brew but @ $16/6-pack, it hurts to buy. I've done the Google/HBT
search and I've come back with nothing. Anyone have any advice or can you push me in the right
direction. I ...
Posted in thread: Cold-crashing wort -- any issues? on 01-23-2013 at 07:09 PM
Yea that's what I was thinking. I was just worried the heavier/more complex sugars would have
dropped out also and lower the FG. But apparently I'm just paranoid :D
Posted in thread: Cold-crashing wort -- any issues? on 01-23-2013 at 06:24 PM
Long time no post.... I tried 'The Google' but it didn't give me any info.I brewed a pilsner on
Monday but when it came time to pitch, my starter smelled off so I tossed it and started over.
So the wo...

You technically could do a Y-valve but then you'd always have a little bit of the beers mixing
which isn't ideal. And then you need the valve mounted somewhere externally unless you want to
open the f...

I love how he avoided answering the question of how much they were making. I'm willing to bet
that it's more than the two person household limit.Because he doesn't know anything about the
beer or the ...

Using AHS's standard crush would yield 70%-75% with a BIAB and a few gallons of sparging. Using
AHS 'double milled' or my corona mill yields 80%-85%. Now without sparging, take 5%-10% off.

The white film or deposits are minerals. Acids like StarSan or a vinegar solution should
redissolve the minerals. Rinse after with water and you should be good to go.
Posted in thread: SMaSH BIAB - low gravity batch? or smaller batch? on 10-22-2012 at 08:21 PM
I went small. In fact, I didn't even use my 5-gallon setup -- I did 4 stove top BIAB batches at
the same time instead. Now if you make a SMaSH that you really like, then make a full 5 gallon
batch. I ...
Posted in thread: 25% OFF 5 Gallon PET Carboy! on 10-22-2012 at 08:14 PM
anyone know what PET these are rated at? are they 1 or 2? Check the triangle on the bottle.
Just wondering how these would be for long term aging of say a sour, hoping for no oxygen
Posted in thread: Cold-crash between primary and secondary? on 10-22-2012 at 08:07 PM
So another question... Like I said, I have so far just used a primary. The ipa I have in one
right now is about 5 weeks old. How big of a deal is it to be sitting on all that trub? I kno
the yeast wil...
