    So I've finally done it. A clean record of 5 years out the window.....I've made an infected
    batch of beer. Almost certain it is due to an infected yeast culture. So......I hate to throw
    away 10 gallon...

    You're right. They're not stainless. Magnet sticks easily.They are in great shape, though. At
    this point, I'm thinking one could be used to mash (simple infusion, no heat of course) or to

    You're right. The barrels are painted on the outside and coated on the inside. Couldn't this be
    removed? Sand blasting maybe?

    My friends and I recently acquired 3 55 gallon food-grade barrels. They were originally used to
    store juice concentrate. (I'm assuming steel or stainless?) They are in good shape. Our
    intention is to ...

    What he's saying is: The yeast is not all powdery and soft looking as it settles out. It's
    settled out as gravel-sized clumps. To pitch or not to pitch, that is the question.

  • Posted in thread: Bottling a Barley Wine, send in the reinforcements? on 06-02-2007 at 01:29 PM
    I'm bottling a barley wine this weekend. It's been in secondary for 3 1/2 months. Do you think
    I should add some fresh yeast before I bottle?

  • Posted in thread: Any Raleigh, NC Area Brewers with Pacman Yeast? on 05-29-2007 at 05:04 PM
    I'm sick of paying for yeast every time I brew. I'm going to start culturing my own. I really
    enjoyed the Pacman yeast that Wyeast put out, but, alas, it is no more. Anyone have a culture?
    I'd love a ...

    For the record, I checked a cardboard box with six, well-wrapped liters. Foam peanuts also. No
    problems. (The box was opened and inspected, as there was fresh tape on it when I got it
    back.)I was goin...

    I'm flying up to Long Island to visit my family in a couple of weeks, and I want to bring some
    homebrew with me. I bottle in 1-liter bottles.Pre-senseless-liquid-ban, I would just put them
    in my carry...

    Why don't you just get an adapter for your sink so you can hook a hose up to it? You might
    already have one if you use a bottle washer. Run the hose to your garage. Run the waste hose
    back to a sink o...
