    Glad the plans are still helping people out! Wish I hadn't lost the Sketchup files...and wish I
    had more time to brew, not a single batch this year.

    It doesn't make as healthy of yeast. They grow up liking simple sugars and spit out maltose.

    Since this has been gone over again and again, I'll keep it short. I brewed my 4th batch (AG)
    on Sunday. The Wyeast Activator didn't swell. After frantically searching threads I decided to
    pitch anywa...

    I need to make a starter and find myself without much DME. I want to make a large 1 gal. 2 step
    starter for a Belgian Dark Strong. Was thinking about doing a mini mash with 1 lb. of grain I
    have sitti...

    All of the flavor is going to come from the spice unless you actually do something to the
    pumpkin...like roast it. I bought some sugar pumpkins, cut them into quarters, roasted them,
    then scooped out ...

  • Posted in thread: Fermentation Temperature Question on 03-18-2010 at 02:29 AM
    You are only going to get higher temps when you are at the height of fermentation. If this
    second batch has been doing for a week or so and you didn't start out an a really high OG then
    you are fine m...

  • Posted in thread: raising temp on beer cause ferment. to restart? on 03-18-2010 at 02:24 AM
    My B.Best IPA fermented for about 3 days and stopped - no bubbles for 5 minutes or so, looks
    dead. I found that odd as my last batch went for 6 days at least. The temp in my furnace room
    is a little c...

  • Posted in thread: First time brewer with some questions on 03-18-2010 at 01:53 AM
    Temperature stability is JUST SLIGHTLY less important than temperature itself. You want to be
    at a good temp, but you don't want to be at 72, then 61, then 70.Also, I'm not sure if I caught
    if it was ...

    I'm just thinking that there is no way to measure the yield while I have sparge water rinsing
    the grains at the same time. I don't want the grain bed depleted of water, correct?Big
