  • Posted in thread: Varying fermentation temperatures past 10 days on 11-21-2014 at 03:47 PM
    I think you will be fine with that. You may finish out a couple points higher than you would if
    the temperature was more constant...but it will be beer :cross:Anytime the beer cools by more
    than a cou...

  • Posted in thread: What single change most improved your beer? on 11-20-2014 at 10:50 PM
    You guys must have started out much more sophisticated than me. I only read about half but I'm
    surprised nobody said Full Batch Boils. For me it's...not that I did those all in that order
    lol.1. Sanit...

    I like the BrewEasy for its versatility. The pots aren't welded together or anything...if you
    wanted you could always take them apart and change up your setup. May be different at 5
    gallons, but at 10...

  • Posted in thread: Are home brewers a "threat" to commercial brewing? on 11-07-2014 at 05:53 PM
    That would be like saying cooking at home is a threat to the restaurant industry...and really
    just a silly statement in general.

  • Posted in thread: How honest are you when reviewing your own beer? on 11-07-2014 at 02:42 PM
    I think I'm pretty honest about taste of it, but my palette isn't refined enough to correctly
    judge it.

  • Posted in thread: No Squeeze Sparging on 10-30-2014 at 08:48 PM
    I'm not a squeezer or a sparger...most of the time. I would if I found myself high on pre-boil
    gravity and low on pre-boil volume. Otherwise I just let it drain in a colander. If efficiency
    was a conc...

  • Posted in thread: How to calculate efficiency? Why is mine so low! on 10-10-2014 at 07:04 PM
    I wouldn't spend the money on a mill quite yet. I would brew again and double check your
    volumes, or whatever you are using to take volume readings. That would be the easiest to fix
    and imo the most l...

  • Posted in thread: Is the faucet on my sink sanitized? on 09-05-2014 at 10:13 PM
    It isn't even necessarily the faucet, but the water coming out of your faucet may also have
    contaminants. I wouldn't worry about sanitizing your faucet, but any water touching your beer
    should be boil...

  • Posted in thread: If you are pressed for time, why do you homebrew? on 07-21-2014 at 06:47 PM
    And if you are that interested in saving yourself a mere 20 minutes then why even bother?
    Because there is a big difference in spending time to do something right and wasting time, but
    where that line...

  • Posted in thread: Lagering procedure on 07-01-2014 at 06:52 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 ...
