Posted in thread: Partial Mash Tips on 05-01-2016 at 08:03 PM
Do you have a pot that is at least 5 gallons? Most brewers do and that plus a paint strainer
bag or a bag make form Swiss Voille makes a mash tun for your partial mash. All that is needed
to mash is a...
Posted in thread: Detrimental to Lager long term at 50F? on 05-01-2016 at 11:48 AM
Lagering at 32 degrees will get the yeast to settle faster. You plan on storing the beer for
several months. You should be just fine. Any byproducts should be cleaned up before the beer is
bottled or ...
Posted in thread: A Multi-Rest Mash Somewhat Pointless? on 05-01-2016 at 11:46 AM
I had a similar experience with my multi-rest experiments. The higher multi-step mash rests are
good... the 143*f - 145*f as JimRausch says are worthwhile for dryer beers. I'll do a 10 minute
rest at ...
Posted in thread: Oxygen Setup on 05-01-2016 at 11:41 AM
Price the disposable oxygen cylinders and check how many batches you can make with one of
those. Price a refillable one from the welding shop and see how many batches you can make with
that. Decide ho...

Hello, I am planning on brewing a Belgian Dubbel tomorrow. Wednesday night I made a starter,

the ferment i...

Please post at least a couple recipes including what liquid extract you used and the hops and
hop amounts. It will help finding where the problem lies.No, boiling the extract isn't the
problem. No, ad...

How can something conduct heat better if it doesn't shed it? Do you have any understanding of
thermodynamics or are you just parroting stuff you read somewhere? If the material does not
shed the heat ...

Is that to imply I should have steeped for 60?Steeping dissolves sugars and extracts flavor and
most of that is done within 30 minutes. It won't hurt to steep longer but the gain from doing
so is pret...

How do you figure aluminum holds heat better? Based on thermal conductivity it will not!
Aluminum is used for heat sinks in electronics for a reason, it sheds heat faster than
steel!No. aluminum condu...
