    Raising the temperature might help but it's probably done. Don't rack to secondary--taking it
    off the yeast will prevent further fermentation. Keep in mind that lactose is unfermentable. So
    if your la...

    Those are the grains you're looking for--just described slightly differently than your recipe.
    Bonlander is brand of Munich malt from Briess. It is American but that shouldn't matter.

    I don't think the water calculators or spreadsheets are useful without the right starting data.
    Some municipalities and utility companies post water reports on their websites or will supply
    you with a...

    As per one of my earlier posts, I grew tired of disconnecting and reconnecting hoses throughout
    the brewing process and spilling wort all over the place so I upgraded my brewing platform with

  • Posted in thread: Dual-purposing RIMS tube as hopback. on 02-07-2016 at 06:05 PM
    I use a RIMS tube during mashing.During the boil, I disassemble, clean and sanitize the tube.I
    am considering using the tube itself as a hopback between my pump and plate chiller during
    chilling. When...

  • Posted in thread: Is my Star San still effective? on 02-07-2016 at 05:56 PM
    StarSan is an acidic sanitizer. As long as the pH is still good (no idea what that is, BTW)
    then it is still effective.I am betting it is still good.The pH needs to be 3 or lower for it
    to be effectiv...

  • Posted in thread: In Line 5 Micron Filter Before Primary on 11-24-2015 at 06:26 AM
    A hop back is likely my next investment, partly because I'd like to try using it as a filter
    between my pump and plate chiller. From what I've read on these forums it works well when used
    that way on ...

    Do you plan to stick with the bag or will you get a mash tun?I'm sticking with the bag. It's
    unlikely I'd burn or break the bag with my current setup.I ran into issues before when I direct
    fired the m...

    This is very cool. My experience with BIAB was a disaster. I was like a total newbe. Your
    thread makes me wish I'd given it another chance. I built my new mash tun already. What is the
    box you used to...
