  • Posted in thread: How to get the best hop aroma from flameout additions? on 04-26-2012 at 01:41 PM
    Sounds good. You guys baggng your hops or using a hop spider? I just wonder if the difference
    might be less pronounced when adding pellets loose. Although if its like tea, theres a
    difference between ...

    This sounds like something I may try on my next pale or ipa. But one thing i was reading about
    recently and was wondering about is dms not being boiled off during the hop steep. Does nobody
    worry abou...

    Henry's law states that the concentration of a gas dissolved in a liquid is directly
    proportional to the pressure of gas above the liquid.If you have water exposed to an
    atmosphere, once everything eq...

    You can see how it works right at the end. Look at the base of the handle here. The lever
    flicks a little hammer thing in the handle that smacks the bottom of the glass.

    Why not just try it, and see if it leaks? I made all my bulkheads from random crap I bought at
    Lowes, (not to pull away from Wayne at BF - he's got good stuff, and it probably would have
    been cheaper ...

    Some of mine have bubbles in them too. I haven't worried much about it.Come to think of it, I
    DID have one carboy with a small air bubble in it spontaneously shatter on me. What a mess. I
    threw it abo...

    And to add to others, tune the PID on the element that you most care about accurate temp
    control on. Typically this means you autotune it on the HLT, since that's where exact temps
    matter. It might ru...

    The Midwest one looks to be the same as my "GE" one I bought a few months least from
    the website pictures.GFCI is GFCI. As long as it's rated for at least the amperage you're
    using, (usually...

    Hrm - you should have gotten an SSR PID, not a relay PID, but you can make it work still.
    You'll need a 3-32 volt DC source, (a wall-wort for charging a cellphone or the like will work
    fine), to give ...

  • Posted in thread: Quick Connects Inside Kettles? on 03-08-2012 at 02:53 PM
    Compressions work OK, but I find they release too easily after a little while, and can leak
    after repeated tightening/loosenings. I much prefer unions. A bit more expensive, (~$7 vs ~$2),
    but they giv...
