  • Posted in thread: Lagering procedure on 07-01-2014 at 05:52 PM
    I've been doing my first temperature controlled lager also. I plan on doing a diacetyl rest
    when fermentation is about 75% complete and then cold crash to 35 for about 2-3 weeks. I'm
    going to hold it ...

  • Posted in thread: Using bag for grain in mash tun on 06-27-2014 at 06:01 PM
    If I ever go back to batch sparging in a cooler (currently BIAB), I will definitely use a
    muslin bag for ease in cleaning. I feel like It'd be like using a garbage can without a trash
    bag.

    You could boil the water before you rinse if you want to go with bleach. Not worth the trouble
    though imo. This is the first step in the difference between drinkable homebrew and great
    homebrew.

  • Posted in thread: What is your favorite local beer (besides Homebrew) on 05-15-2014 at 09:44 PM
    Too hard to keep up with the Chicago beer explosion but Metropolitan is a go to, nothing but
    tasty lagers.

  • Posted in thread: I can control fermentation temperature, now what? on 05-15-2014 at 05:41 PM
    I haven't read the yeast book yet, but I thought that cooling during fermentation could put the
    yeast to sleep. How do they say that cooling promotes yeast growth in the book?I have heard
    Jamil talk a...

    I am not sure about the water chemistry but you will most likely see a large drop in efficiency
    of the mash, probably having to do with the grist ratio. I range from about 70% for 1.050 to
    probably le...

    Sources:www.organics.orgwww.atsdr.cdc.govfoodbabe.comwww.greenpeace.orgIt's just a parroting of
    the Food Babe article awhile back....listing her in the sources automatically removes all
    credibility. N...

  • Posted in thread: Should I take out all this stuff on top? on 03-24-2014 at 06:03 PM
    That looks like your yeast, you'll want to keep that. Reminds me of whipped strawberry yogurt.
    :D

  • Posted in thread: Mash overnight or Mash out for boil next morning? on 03-24-2014 at 05:56 PM
    I'd feel safer boiling then leaving it cool overnight. That way you could put the lid on and it
    would be sanitized as it was cooling. It may create DMS but I think it would be better than
    leaving it i...

  • Posted in thread: Chicago water? on 03-19-2014 at 07:20 PM
    City water is great for brewing actually...believe me, most of the country wished they had it
    as good. your watermains on the other hand are probably 100 years old. :)Nothing a carbon
    filter shouldn't...
