I had forgotten about the foaming issue. I guess in that case I might just relegate my
kegerator to a cold storage for my kegs to get them to bottling temp.

When it comes down to it, I'm in a bit of a brewing rut and I am trying to make things simpler
in order to make it more enjoyable. Unfortunately, the kegerator just adds one more thing to

Sorry for the lengthy post, skip to the end for my questions and midway for my plan.So, I have
been kegging for around 2 years, and unfortunately I just don't drink enough beer or throw
Posted in thread: Splitting the boil in half? on 06-26-2013 at 06:06 PM
What I do is I add my hops into one pot, and start the boils at the same time. I typically
sparge to about 7.5 gallons and boil down to 5.5. I found through calculations that the
difference in IBU's i...

What would be good hops amounts for an ESB vs an EIPA? Would a 1oz at 15 and a 1oz at flameout

there a rough guide to how...
Posted in thread: Critique? How would you classify this? IIAA? on 06-20-2013 at 03:43 PM
I did an amber ale once that was 16SRM according to my software. I found that it was way too
dark, but still tasted great. I would suggest skipping the chocolate malt completely, it's
kinda out of pla...

But that's what I have you guys for!I need help with my next beer (mostly the hop schedule). I

Posted in thread: Munich Malt as Base Grain (Diastatic Power) on 03-27-2013 at 10:20 PM
I've used Munich as a base malt a number of times. When I do, I typically lean towards the
lighter Munich that is available (my LHBS has a dark and a light). Munich should be able to
convert itself, s...
Posted in thread: mash temp too high, can I let it cool and then start timer? on 03-21-2013 at 10:45 PM
This was a brew in the bag recipe in my 10 gallon pot. I kept gently stirring the wort and it
dropped to 154 F within 10 minutes. I'll see how it will taste in 6 weeks.You're most likely
fine then. I ...
