Posted in thread: Stainless shanks imparting a metal taste on 05-21-2011 at 06:56 PM
I just replaced all of my old chrome/brass shanks because they were turning green, had a slight
brassy taste on first pours, and I couldn't get them clean. I purchased new stainless shanks
Posted in thread: Mashing-Water or Grain First? on 03-08-2011 at 01:55 PM
I personally like adding the water first, grain second. That way the initial water addition
pre-heats the mash tun and I can add the grain exactly when the water hits the right strike
temp. I feel I h...

Posted in thread: Question for Danby DKC645BLS owners on 01-14-2011 at 03:59 PM

inside. It's tight but doable.
Posted in thread: Keg frustration - leak - what now? on 12-22-2010 at 03:07 PM
Star San in a spray bottle works well for finding leaks too. Just another piece of advice...

for leaks. It'...

I've never done a side by side comparison of the same brew with and w/o using the gelatin so I

fermentable sugars ...

Posted in thread: Don't let Iodophor solution sit in your beer lines on 12-02-2009 at 04:19 PM
