    OR just hook it up at 30 psi right after you keg it and just leave it. By the time it is cold
    and the crap drops out 24-36 hours you beer will be perfectly carbed. I don't like the idea of
    shaking up ...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast starter(s) necessary? on 09-04-2015 at 06:03 PM
    I have a similar set-up as you: a stir plate, 2000mL flask and I do 11ish gallon batches split
    into 2 fermenters. Here is what I do with good results:1) Stagger my starters if I NEED two
    separate liqu...

    I had the same problem with my mashtun. I simply got a silicone washer that was the same inner
    diameter, but the diameter of the washer itself was much bigger. Essentially, the same size
    washer but mu...

    I think it more if a question of requirements to achieve the desired output. I personally
    stopped making starters when unnecessary. Over pitching isn't the best approach, it's pitching
    the right amoun...

    I ran my numbers again and derived 227 billion, using 12 million per mL of wort over 1.060, per
    wyeast. So you are right. I've been reading in depth about yeast and it's complex but not
    complicated.Yo...

    Agreed with the above post. Another set of questions:1) Did you take any measure to aerate such
    as pure o2 through diffusion stone, slosh around the wort for a while, or some other type of
    apparatus t...

    Like the guy said above, do you have a water softener? Anyway, never fear. A lot of grocery
    stores and wal-mart sell RO water on the cheap.

  • Posted in thread: Another Carboy Horror Story on 08-25-2015 at 07:05 PM
    Yah, I'm pretty paranoid about never setting my glass carboys directly onto a hard surface. In
    my basement, they sit on wooden shelves for storage. When racking from the kettle in my garage,
    I set the...

  • Posted in thread: Another Carboy Horror Story on 08-25-2015 at 03:21 PM
    OK, noob here. I've just started using a 5 gal glass carboy and planned on cold crashing in it
    this weekend... Should I just rack into the keg and crash there?I am guessing you will be OK
    because you ...

    After reviewing everything, I'm going to go with -- make sure you thermometer and
    hydrometer/refractometer are accurate and calibrated. If you are using a cheap dial thermometer
    you are almost guarant...
