    What is the best descriptor of the off flavor taste? The big problem with filtering your yeast
    and bottling, if you naturally carbonate you might come into issues as you have removed most
    (if not all)...

    I was figuring shocked yeast, at fridge temps, re-fermentation would be unlikely... but agreed
    pony up for another fermentor.

    I've never frozen my juice for my ciders before I just use metabisulfite. If you seal the
    container after adding the metabisulfite you shouldn't have a problem. But I might add more
    sulfite before usi...

    I built an electric brew kettle and use a CF chiller. I set the kettle up with a braided SS
    tube wraped around the kettle to keep the hops out of my pump. I brewed my first batch and it
    worked awesome...

  • Posted in thread: question on using fresh hops? on 09-12-2010 at 02:30 AM
    if you use them wet- 1oz dry hops loosely equals 5oz wet hops

    your LHBS might have some guts to replace, probably a seal. But new a new a disconnect is not
    to expensive.

  • Posted in thread: Using ice for lagering fridge? on 09-11-2010 at 03:10 AM
    I would check the thermostat on the fridge, some have a master set screw behind the controls
    you may have some luck with that.
