  • Posted in thread: Frustrated with foam issues on 08-16-2016 at 07:34 PM
    I replaced a 'visually' perfect looking, but otherwise old, beer connector once and the foaming
    issue I had just went away. It may not be easy to tell on your setup but, I recently had a keg
    of wheat ...

  • Posted in thread: Beer won't Accept Carbonation?? on 08-15-2016 at 02:35 PM
    Puzzled here as I attempt to keg carb a new style of beer to me. I am force carbing a 5G soda
    keg of Jalapeno Pineapple Saison. I had the beer set and forget at 15psi for 9 days at 32F. It
    is acceptin...

  • Posted in thread: To Trub or Not to Trub on 08-15-2016 at 02:26 PM
    Don't sweat that, it's a good question. I follow the brulosophers method to a T. I transfer all
    the trub into the fermentor, after fermentation is complete, cold crash and fine with gelatin.

    Co2 cylinders need to be re-certified every 5 years, that usually can cost as much a purchasing
    a new cylinder. You may want to consider using a newer 5 or 10 pound Co2 cylinder.

  • Posted in thread: Is my mash ph ok??? on 08-13-2016 at 02:38 PM
    I added my brewing salts and lactic acid.... Prior to adding the grain I took a ph sample...My
    meter read in the low 4.1 range. Shall I assume the grains (20 lbs) will raise the ph to 5.45
    where I tar...

    Plug the refrigerator into the wall outlet without the controller and see if it gets down to
    34F, which any working modern refrigerator should easily do.For best results fill a 5 gallon
    fermentor with...

  • Posted in thread: Milwaukee or Hach ph meter? on 08-11-2016 at 05:14 PM
    My advice is to store any pH meter in a small container, like a double shot glass, filled with
    storage solution and wrapped with plastic wrap, using an elastic band to hold it in place. This
    way the s...

  • Posted in thread: Decision Time.. Need advice on mash phase of my new brewery on 08-11-2016 at 01:40 PM
    That's pretty much what I'm talking about doing.. As stated in the original post, the hottest I
    can get to will be about 135 degrees or so for the sparge water.. Is this an issue, or would it
    be bette...

  • Posted in thread: Decision Time.. Need advice on mash phase of my new brewery on 08-08-2016 at 02:04 PM
    The eBIAB system that I use looks very similar to the setup that you mention. I sparge my
    grains by lifting the basket of grains above the wort and then pouring 168F sparge water
    through them. With th...
