    I'm not entirely sure if you just want to collect the blow-off yeast, or if you want something
    more. It seems like a burton union type system. Check this out: made one for ferments that
    didn't have a...

    Zombie thread! I'll be your huckleberry. I can't speak for the White Labs 720 yeast, but I've
    used Forbidden fruit for a regular strength Belgian Wit and a strong Belgian Wit. Both were
    good and compa...

    Made an all brett ipa with that yeast earlier this year. Very tasty. Really no funk. Just nice
    fruity/tropical flavors. I think I used citra, mosaic, and centennial. Almost all the hops were
    during wh...

    Just got my Blackstone and love it. Used to make pizza in my Kamado Joe, but keeping a constant
    temp was difficult. So much easier with the Blackstone. Made 4 Neapolitan pies last weekend
    that were th...

    I agree with the ball valve idea. I had this same problem with my ball valve. If you don't have
    a ball valve on your kettle ignore this. I took it apart and cleaned it and the next batch was
    good. The...

  • Posted in thread: Brew Bucket 3 piece ball valve? on 03-10-2016 at 10:16 PM
    I bought a 3 piece 3/8" stainless steel ball valve thinking/hoping I could just replace the
    crappy one with. I could definitely make it work, but the hole for the dip tube is far too big.
    I might have...

    I ordered some from barley haven. I'm going to make the Vitus recipe with this yeast. Pitch at
    temp around 62F and hold there. Wondering if I should oxygenate the wort prior to pitching.
    Definitely go...

    you all should try and get your hands on WLP611 New Nordic Blend. Might sound crazy, but the
    yeast puts out serious banana aroma & flavor when fermented in the low to mid 60's. I brewed an
    amazing wei...
