Posted in thread: Missing Target Mash Temp on 08-08-2016 at 02:53 PM
Thanks for all the responses. I believe I do have Beersmith set to "reasonable" settings,
including weight, cooler & grain temp (68F - actual temp in the house). On my last brew I even
put the cooler/...

I'm fairly new to AG brewing. I've done 8-10 batches and still feeling my way through the
process. One thing I've noticed is that my mash temps are consistently coming out low. Most of
my batches have...
Posted in thread: Can You Brew It recipe for Lagunitas IPA on 10-31-2015 at 04:59 PM
I did the recipe on the OP and have had it in the keg for a couple weeks now. It's a good beer,
but if I were to sample it without knowing what it was, I wouldn't be saying "That's a
Lagunitas IPA." I...
Posted in thread: First brew IPA all grain time and fg? on 08-02-2015 at 02:08 PM

My goal is a fairly easy to drink IPA, bordering on a Pale, no caustic hops, in the vein of a
Founders All Day. Leaning towards the First Wort on the Simcoe to mellow the acrid but pull the
Posted in thread: Possibly underpitched? Repitch or dump? on 01-04-2015 at 03:55 PM
I see no problem with re-pitching at this point. But... you might also give it some time. If
the pack swelled after you smacked it, then that's an indication that you do have viable yeast.
Also, not s...
Posted in thread: First Time Brewer...Long time drinker in Illinois on 01-01-2015 at 11:30 PM
My first question is do you have the right equipment to do a 7 gallon batch? That's going to be
pushing the limit of your standard carboys or ale pails that are usually geared for a 5 gallon
Posted in thread: Carboy exploded!!! on 01-01-2015 at 11:23 PM
Is this just further evidence to suggest that fermenting in an Ale Pail is a much safter/better
way to go than using a carboy??
