  • Posted in thread: 12 gallon carboy fermenter - really on 11-08-2013 at 06:23 PM
    Hey all,Just a quick note, I've been brewing for 4 years. Started off like all, switched to all
    grain, and never looked back. It's a great hobby, I love it. I'm set up for 5 gallon batches,
    so I've ne...

    I'm hoping time will heal my chocolate oatmeal stout, I bottled early May. It was an Oatmeal
    Stout PM kit I bought from Northern Brewer that I added 4oz of Cacao nibs to the secondary for
    2 weeks. I p...

    I failed pretty bad today too. For some reason my digital thermometer got stuck on 151 for
    about a half hour while steeping and then jumped to 175. So I steeped 3 lbs of grain and 2cans
    of pumpkin at ...

    So I'm pretty sure I ruined 65 bucks worth of honey. Tried heating it up, oven warming water
    over a low flame, and I melted the container. First attempt at mead but I've had a few mediocre
    beer attemp...

    Awesome. I will take a sample tonight, and let you guys know how it goes.Good luck with your
    first batch! Just be careful not to over-prime your bottles. Other than that you should be good
    to go!

    Honestly I love the plastic buckets myself. I wouldn't mind using the glass if it weren't for
    cleaning the krausen all contortionist style after. I have a bad back so homebrewing is one
    area I do my b...

    There is nothing wrong with using buckets. Just don't scrub them with anything that will
    scratch them. You can get them clean without much effort or scrubbing.While it's true that
    scratching will make...

    I don't know of any professional brewery that ferments in their brew kettle.They boil in their
    brew kettles, but ferment in cylindroconical fermenters (stainless steel or plastic).Sorry
    about that! I ...

    Coffee during boiling would destroy the beer faster than what Jim didI see! That's what the
    right approach?

    Hi folks, I'm Jim, and I'm a beer dumper.......I've always been in Revvy's camp of never
    dumping your beer, but I finally have a batch that I dumped today. It's a Mocha Cherry Stout
    that I brewed back...
