    ABOUT ME

  • Reno, NV
  • Skiing,Homebrewing,Backpacking
  • Gov. Gibbons Homebrew Team
  • Washoe Zephyr Zymurgists
  • Started when living in Christchurch, New Zealand '06-'07 w/a "Mac's Gold" kit. Had to use an electric blanket to keep my fermentations warm enough in chilly New Zealand houses. Ended up leaving my starter kit over there when I moved back to the States just to buy it all over again! Now moving into a whole grain setup. Just scored some kegs to convert into a kettle and lauter tun. Almost in business!

    2008 results are in... 11 batches brewed!

    Seems this valve is rated to 90C or 194F. Anyone using it had any problems with running fresh
    boiled wort? I imagine the wort will only be above 194F for a short time after flame out (even
    more so for...

    I'm curious to see how yours turned out. Its been about a year since I brewed my "Franken
    Cider" and I'll be popping the cap on one next week to try it. We'll see how funky it is after
    a year of aging...

    100% quinoa, or did you use barley as well?

    I tried and it was a pain in the butt to work with. (I was trying to keep it dryfitted for ease
    of cleaning.) I started a thread on it here: the end I went with a 1/2" copper tubing
    manifold. It was...

  • Posted in thread: Rice hulls question on 05-24-2010 at 04:20 AM
    Come to think of it , a stuck sparge is indicative of not setting up an porous filter bed with
    your grain. A dough ball is indicative of not mixing water into grain adequately enough to wet
    all grain ...

  • Posted in thread: Rice hulls question on 05-24-2010 at 03:51 AM
    Doesn't everyone mix the grain when they drop the mash to avoid any dough balls, it should not
    make a difference where you place the rice hulls. It is going to get mixed in anyways.Depends
    how well yo...

  • Posted in thread: Rice hulls question on 05-22-2010 at 06:49 PM
    Mix them in. The point of using rice hulls is because some grains (like wheat) are lacking a
    husk. Its difficult to set up a filter bed when sparging without a husk because the grain bed
    compacts. Ric...
