Posted in thread: Share us your DUMBEST brewing experience... on 02-24-2014 at 03:19 PM
I recall two incidents during Covert Hops Society group brews that would count. The first was
during the 2012 summer brew; the brewers in charge put an immersion chiller into Tin Man (the
BK) to sanit...

How did you happen to get raw wheat directly from a farm? That is a bit unusual for most
people. Few folks these days have access to a farm like that. While it is a nice thing to be
able to do that, i...

On the advice of another CHS member, I've poured the batch back and re-pitched it with some

I've run into a bit of a problem with the beer from this month's CHS group brew. I went to
bottle the porter (brewed 2 Feb 2014, OG 1.056) today, and when I checked a sample by
hydrometer, it was stil...

My own tastes are admittedly quite broad, being fond of most styles when done well, but I have
always favored malty beers over hoppy ones. My own best beers are a dry stout, a tripel, and an
Posted in thread: How do you sanitize your plate chiller prior to chilling? on 02-21-2014 at 08:10 PM
I circulate 10gal. of a PBW solution from my MLT (an Igloo cooler) through the entire chiller
apparatus and into the fermenter (running the pump), followed by a plain water rinse in the
same manner. I...
Posted in thread: Getting Started AG Brewing in Marietta on 02-21-2014 at 07:52 PM
Have you looked at the list of clubs? Covert Hops Society has several members in the Marietta
area; in fact there was a meeting at the Red Hare Brewery earlier this week (sorry you missed
it). Check w...
Posted in thread: Home grown barley on 02-21-2014 at 02:28 PM
When using unmalted barley: does it change the brew in any way? I would assume it can be
roasted as well. My thought process it to grow a bushel and malt half or so.Yes, significantly,
though you want...

I would recommend letting it run clear. Most other conicals have a second outlet at the very
bottom for drawing off the trub and yeast. I'm surprised this doesn't. OTOH, most other
conicals are a lot ...
