    Curious what you thought of it. I just did a big IPA and the ferment seems to be going very
    slowly. I made a 2L starter w the gigayeast pack, pitched most of that to a 17.6 oxygenated
    wort and it took...

    I've been looking around and can't find much on using potassium metabiasulphite in beers -
    specifically fruit beers. I have a low gravity wheat I want to add watermelon juice to. I've
    seen Dachs and o...

    2nd. I love BeerSmith and it's my primary software, but use iBrewMaster frequently just bc I

    Out of ~30 or so batches I have bottle-conditioned, I have had two that were way
    over-carbonated. The first was a porter that I added vanilla bean to secondary, which I blamed
    for somehow contributing...

  • Posted in thread: My mother of a fermentation chiller on 06-23-2011 at 05:16 PM
    I recently built a version of the 38DD mother of fermentation chiller but I've got a question
    about the warm air return, from fermentation chamber back to ice chamber. In the original
    Wort-o-matic pla...

    Anyone have a problem with overly-bitter malt profile from Caraffa 2? I've noticed a slight
