    I appreciate your response! I think I posted this well over a year ago. Question #1: Do I smoke
    just the 2 row? Yes, i never smoke the specialty malts because the heat would ruin them.
    Remember, when ...

  • Posted in thread: concrete fermenters?? on 08-12-2011 at 12:35 PM
    Nope. Nice fermenter, but I don't have a T-Shirt that big so I couldn't control the temps. Was
    reading this thread this morning, and happened to stumble across this about 2hrs ago at Thomas
    George Win...

    I brewed for years before actually using the hydrometer. Then, as soon as I started using one,

    Big thank you to thegerm or posting that pic, and Revvy for consolation that it happens to the
    best of us, year round. Yeah, me to-- ordered yeast in the summer by mail. MISTAKE. Won't do it

  • Posted in thread: Wort Chilling in the Snow Took Forever! on 02-10-2011 at 04:31 AM
    I am going to pipe in here on the snow discussion. I would agree that if you're brewing in a
    turkey fryer kettle, this won't work. However, my method takes about 16 minutes here in
    southern Indiana. I...

    So which part refers to the "balls"? Curious backstory I am sure.

  • Posted in thread: Help me toss something on my WL029 on 10-15-2008 at 06:27 AM
    I just pitched an altbier wort on a Kolsch yeast cake-- the wl029 you're using. It literally
    took off, and seems to have completely stopped 24 hours later. I am not sure how it will turn
    out, as these...

  • Posted in thread: German Ale- Kolsch on 10-05-2008 at 05:37 PM
    My recent Kolsch (with the White labs yeast and a 1 day starter) took off quick, but took 2
    weeks before really active fermentation seemed to slow down enough that I could go to
    secondary. In secondar...
