    I'd prefer to use glass across the board, however, I know myself. I'm NOT careful, I have a few
    beers when I brew, and I'm a small enough guy that handling full glass carboys is a sketchy
    proposition....

    Good to know others do this and get good results. Thanks. I've done it for my last dozen or so
    batches and have generally had good beer, but wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something or
    shortchangi...

    This whole argument is stupid.There is nothing stupid about discussing the pros and cons of
    various pieces of equipment, nor is there anything stupid about homebrewers discussing why they
    chose one pi...

    Yes, very thorough aeration. I'm a shaker. In this case that sucker got a good 10-15 minutes of
    shaking. Pitched yesterday at around 3 pm, by the top I got up to go to work it was gurgling
    along nicel...

    Don't have the full recipe here in front of me. IIRC, it was 4.5 quarts (or 13.5 pounds) of
    LME, dark and pale, and roughly three pounds of specialty grains (black, chocolate, aromatic,
    caramunic).The...

    Extract brewer here. As I bring my boil kettle up to temperature, I steep my specialty grains
    in a separate pot. I then transfer the resulting grain "tea" over to the boil kettle. I started
    doing this...

    So a quick update. Took a reading today to be sure the yeast had pushed through okay. Had two
    days of strong activity and then nothing. Not a big deal, some beers ferment fast, just wanted
    to be sure ...

    A little worried about infection, but it got off to a quick start, fermentation looks healthy,
    and smells good ... so I think I dodged that bullet.

    Brewed a barleywine yesterday. First chance to try my new burner & larger kettle. Brewing went
    fine.Near the end of chilling, however, I discovered that my wort chiller had developed a slow
    leak where...

    You could scale down the volume a bit. You would have less beer but higher alcholoe while not
    getting a thin beer. Or you could just get more extract.I've done this. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
    clone done ...
