    It's pretty easy to do and cheap. I figured out process when brewing IPA's where I dry hop. I
    first transfer from my carboy and use the first keg as a secondary or bright tank. I then
    transfer to my s...

    This sounds pretty good to me. I 'm with you that Chinook is a little rough at times. I think
    that the calmer hops will help it out. Go for it.

  • Posted in thread: How many batches have you actually poured? on 09-18-2014 at 10:13 PM
    I brewed a pale ale with spruce tips this spring, Doesn't taste bad but like chewing on a tree
    in the woods. I could drink it but it's real hard. I am going to let it sit in the keg and see
    what happe...

  • Posted in thread: So in theory, if I brew my own, I can pay 2.50 a six pack? on 09-17-2014 at 04:58 PM
    I guess if I figure my brewing, I am about $20.00 plus per sixer, but still well worth it. When
    my SWMBO (wife) would rather have my beer than one from the fridge, When My friends would drink
    my brew ...

    My little experience is that the longer is sets at serving pressure 8 to 12 psi, the better the
    carbonation. I have taken kegs off line and they maintained good carbonation for months. When I
    do this ...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone else out there hate starsan? on 09-17-2014 at 03:24 AM
    I like Starsan. I agree it is hard on the skin, I use rubber gloves when sanitizing and
    regularly dip my hands in solution. If the foaming is a problem, there is a non foaming version
    called Saniclean...

  • Posted in thread: Parti Gyle - 15 Gallons 1 mash? on 09-16-2014 at 02:01 AM
    What I enjoy about brewing parti gyle is the saving of time, Just one cleanup instead of two
    and one large water boil The little problem I have is consistancy of the second brew. I love
    brown ale and ...

    Impalse, thanks for the chart. I Parti Gyle all the time, This chart will help. If I want a
    heavy beer, I will mash and collect my first runnings, sparging enough for my batch volume. I
    will then re m...

    Sorry for your pain, My nice and cooperative LHBS crushes my grains free of charge, Places it
    in a nice plastic bag and in a beer box. Real handy and easy. Thanks Summer Sun Garden and
