  • Posted in thread: Nitro question on 02-14-2016 at 04:44 AM
    I just got my nitro tap about 3 months ago so I am by no means an expert but I have done it
    both ways. Simply hook it up to the beer gas at like 35PSI and wait a few weeks or carb it
    first with CO2 to...

    Alright - that's what I thought. I'll just have to remember to put the harden hose inside my
    house the night before - thanks guys :)Yeah definitely remember to do that. Its not fun thawing
    your hose o...

  • Posted in thread: Gelatin vs cold crash on 02-09-2016 at 08:46 PM
    I rarely use gelatin just because I'm lazy but I used to use it all the time. It will certainly
    speed up how long it takes for the beer to become clear but it will get just as clear by just
    waiting. I...

    Anyone looking to make this HopsDirect has 1lb 2015 Azacca pellets and whole for like $12/lb
    right now. That's like 1/2 what I paid for a lb last year. I picked up a pound of each. I would
    have done m...

    I personally think the COFI is too expensive although they aren't really marked up much from
    the actual costs. I had the company that manufacturers the COFI for the Brew-Boss make me my
    own SS basket ...

    I leave it for almost every part of the process. You need to be there when its starts to reach
    its boil to prevent a boil over but other than that its fairly hands off. When I'm doing a 5G
    batch in th...

    during the boil I tried to lower the temp but was unable to do it fast enough. I almost had a
    boil over but lucky I had the kill switch. Turn off the element and everything was ok. With the
    brew boss ...

    As a fellow cheapskate and believer in the KISS principle, I believe you've reached the right
    conclusion.I've been doing BIAB with a 1500W 120V element and a Hot Rod heat stick in an
    insulated 6 gallo...

    I used to really stress about getting clear wort into the fermentor but I stopped caring about
    a year ago and I've not noticed any difference in the taste or quality of my beer. I have a hop
    spider bu...

  • Posted in thread: [Initial Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution on 01-26-2016 at 09:21 PM
    Since I run my rpints on a tablet and I don't use the flow meters I wanted a cheap and dirty
    way to track pours. I think I may have mentioned in this thread before that I was working on
    some touch con...
