Posted in thread: Trouble closing perlick 425s on 02-12-2016 at 04:13 PM

Posted in thread: Gelatin vs cold crash on 02-10-2016 at 02:24 PM
The laid back lazy man's method works well for me, just letting time, temperature and gravity

in a hurry...

While its not super expensive, it's a bit of a trek up to the store to pick up 6-7g of spring

area are ...

That's what initially got me thinking - why an extension cord.. why not just tap right into the

starting point a...
Posted in thread: Poor attenuation, what's the likely culprit? on 01-26-2016 at 03:29 PM
Man, I would love to get 80% efficiency from my eBIAB system! Even with double crushing the
grains and a 90 minute mash I'm happy to get 70-75% efficiency. What temperature was your wort
when you used...

I kick myself every time I say "dryer vent".... no idea why I keep saying -vent- but I mean to
refer to the dryer outlet... I found myself repeating it again in person this morning talking

At 10-12psi and 38F a 10' length of 3/16" ID beer line should let you carbonate and serve at
