  • Posted in thread: The co2 "blanket" on 07-26-2016 at 02:18 PM
    I use Ale Pails for fermentation and gave up on dry hopping in them years ago because I was
    tired of fussing with hops and fermenters. What I have been doing instead is adding aroma hops
    to the kettle...

  • Posted in thread: Homebrew Brewery Name? on 07-12-2016 at 06:22 PM
    I gotta come up with a cool name for my "brewery". I have plenty of possibilities float through
    my head, but how do I decide to go with one of them?? I can't make a decision!Relax and have a

  • Posted in thread: Long duct run for indoor brewery ventilation on 06-07-2016 at 06:19 PM
    A 90 degree elbow will add up to 10 feet of restriction per elbow to the duct run. So a 25 foot
    run with 2 elbows really becomes a 35 foot run. My hood uses a 780cfm fan and has less than 3
    feet of of...

  • Posted in thread: Can my water profile affect dry hop effectiveness? on 06-06-2016 at 07:13 PM
    Why not move some of your hop additions further back in the boil, use an ounce of hops per
    gallon and add them at 20, 10 and 5 minutes left to the boil?

  • Posted in thread: CO2 prices up 50% on 06-06-2016 at 07:07 PM
    The Praxair place by me has not changed their Co2 swapping prices in the 2 years I have been
    going there, last week they charged me the same $20 for swapping a #5 tank as they always have.
    You might w...

    Having switched from a gas powered 3 vessel system, to a single vessel eBIAB system myself a
    few years ago I can tell you that having a grain hoist is a necessity. It is amazing how heavy
    24 pounds of...

  • Posted in thread: How many ppm of sufate for a hoppy ipa on 06-06-2016 at 03:40 PM
    A sulfate level of 180ppm seems to be the sweetspot for me, any higher than that tends to make
    the beer a bit too harsh tasting. Although you haven't provided the details of your IPA brewing
    water, th...

  • Posted in thread: Change That Oxygenation Stone!!! on 06-06-2016 at 03:08 PM
    My aerator stone has been used to oxygenate a lot of batches over the past 5 years. It has
    never caused an infection and has never been boiled or had any sort of restricted flow
    problems. All that has...

  • Posted in thread: What temperature do you cold crash at? on 05-27-2016 at 02:49 PM
    So what temperature is everyone using for cold crashing?I use 1C / 33.8 FI realize since
    there's alcohol in the beer I could go below freezing but it's nice to have a little buffer.A
    5% alcohol beer b...
