  • Posted in thread: Pump - Is it really worthwhile? on 03-22-2014 at 12:34 AM
    I would probably add a 10 gal Igloo cooler for a HLT first, then a pump. Certainly not a
    must-have, but I'm very happy with how the pump has made the brew day go a little faster, and
    safer. Then down ...

    I'll be brewing a similar porter in a few days and was curious as to why the maltodextrin is

    wouldn't tha...

    I think this is normal. If it holds pressure after you adjust the regulator, you should be OK.

  • Posted in thread: Dishwaser and sanitizer on 01-13-2013 at 01:26 AM
    Some dishwashers have a sanitation cycle, and so the temp gets high enough to sanitize. You

  • Posted in thread: What are alternatives from using O2 pump to aerate high gravity worts? on 01-12-2013 at 01:31 PM
    I would highly recommend the oxygen wand and disposable O2 bottles. The initial investment is a
    little higher, but it gets the job done quickly and efficiently.

    supplies than you would online, but the advice and knowledge is worth it.You can also read John
    Palmer's ...
