  • We're getting the hang of AG, but it still involves a lot of lifting. We need a solution that requires lifting nothing heavier than a pint glass.
  • Two batches of AG pilsner. Gotta love that Saaz...

    I'd love to get my paws on a 30-gal kettle for those days when I just *have* to fill 4 corny

  • Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 06-21-2015 at 06:01 AM
    We ported another keggle, replumbed the propane manifold to handle two burners with modern
    fittings, and made our first 20-gallon batch (lautered into three vessels, then combined to
    equalize volumes ...

    The carnage thread is enough to scare a guy, that's for sure. Any time a story includes the
    phrase, "and the doctors say I'll make an almost complete recovery" I get spooked. I have a few

    We had a little light frost here the last couple of days and it isn't slowing my hops down a
    bit. Tallest ones are up to 7'. You pretty much can't kill 'em. A few years ago the weed guy
    came by and ho...

    Extract or all-grain? Mashing schedule, if all-grain? Yeast type? Did you make a
    starter?Questions aside, you can often kickstart a stalled fermentation (regardless of yeast
    type) with some agitation ...

    Is the Victory malt providing all the enzymes for the starch conversion in the mash? I was not
    aware it had that much diastatic power. I thought wheat needed help converting. I have only
    ever used a s...

  • Posted in thread: First time brewer: cider smells and tastes like soft pretzels? on 03-17-2015 at 04:19 AM
    No, it was very, very sweet. It had three pounds of pure sugar in less than a gallon of liquid.
    The alcohol must have killed the yeast.Yes, this is your problem. 3 lbs of sugar in 1 gallon

    I didn't add any priming sugar because it was already very sweet.This is your problem. At the
    end of fermentation (when the gravity stopped did confirm this, right?) the
    yeast have eate...

    You said that the west side would be shaded by the fence...can you move them to the other side
    of the fence? Or is that the neighbor's yard?I have a fairly open yard (no fence) so I located
