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

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
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 ...
