Posted in thread: Wort Temp vs. Fermentaiton Chamber Temp on 10-01-2012 at 07:52 AM
Funnily enough, I was thinking of the exact same thing this morning. I did a brew last night
and because I live in the tropics where the ambient temperature if always over 30 degrees, we

Posted in thread: Can I recarbonate beer? on 09-29-2011 at 08:16 AM
Kind of a dumb question but here is my reason why. I recently brewed a batch of brown ale. It's

I am using PET bottles for my bottling and already after 1 day in the bottles, you can feel
that they are quite pressurized. Just wondering what the rate of carbonation is over a week? I

I've had the same problem with mine. Fermenting in hot tropical countries is a problem and

OG was 1.072 an...

the wort instead of spending gobs of money on wort chillers that also waste so much water. It
brings the ...
Posted in thread: Should I add maltodextrin to an IPA? on 08-14-2011 at 02:05 AM
I did some searching but couldn't find a thread for this topic. I recently made a brupack IPA
but added 22L instead of the recommended 19L so I am worried it might be a little on the thin
side. It is ...
