You'll be fine. The extra water will just lower the gravity of your starter. This is better
than having a gravity over 1.040. Since you plan on decanting, you won't thin your wort out
either. As far a...

I'd buy it. Make a starter though.

How will you know if it worked? I guess if a refractometer and hydrometer read the same, you
could be somewhat certain it worked. No alcohol to skew the refractometer reading.

I built my rig but I have a little input. You can buy a 1 bbl 4 vessel system from stout tanks
in Portland for $3100. I'm sure you could get a half bbl system for $2500 or less. That
includes a conica...

I like the "made from beer" line at the end. That's awesome.

You don't have to pitch right away. You could still use the stir plate for both batches. You
could even do a real wort starter with the second batch and pitch the whole starter without
Posted in thread: Can you measure the gravity of beer after conditioned? on 08-31-2012 at 04:07 PM
You don't even need the OG if you have a refractometer, hydrometer and beer smith. Degas a
bottle, take a reading with both the refractometer and hydrometer and beer smith will give you
the OG and ABV...

I like it! :)Now, how about simulating how big a cap he'd need to stick on Q1's emitter to make
the on/off transition slew rate slow enough to providing a noticeable fade-in/fade-off effect?

Instead of a trimmer cap, I'd just go with a trim pot. You can get everything in your circuit
at radio shack or fry's electronics for pretty cheap. Just put a 10k resistor in series with
your trim pot...
Posted in thread: Centennial hops smell like burnt rubber? on 08-25-2012 at 11:49 PM
My first year centennial smelled a little rubbery last year but that was after they had been in
a plastic bag for a while. I just went outside to smell them... I'm not getting a rubber smell.
Do the g...
