    Is it maybe the first time you've used Irish Moss/Whirfloc? That'll lead to some funky looking
    stuff in the carboy immediately after transfer.

    Mark, maybe things have changed since the last time I went into Maltose - I'll grant it's been
    a while. I remember the one time I went in, I had two things that turned me off: 1) I asked for
    some idea...

    stratslinger, he's trying to do the opposite-- use a corny keg with a sanky tap. At least,
    that's how I understand the question.That's certainly how the subject of the thread reads - but
    reading his f...

    Unless that current temp is a typo, you probably want to bring that down another 10 degrees -
    WLP002 likes 65-68, ideally. 75 is likely to throw some funky esters, assuming that the yeast
    is OK...

  • Posted in thread: To Dedoction or Not? on 07-28-2014 at 07:52 PM
    I'm with Talgrath - I was just part of a pretty involved experiment a couple months back
    involving decoctions that found, in the end, little to no difference between single infusion,
    single, double, o...

    You can also look into this - though it's not quite as easy or quick as going down to your
    LHBS: picked up a set of these at last year's NHC, and they work great. Just install them on
    your Sanke tap,...

  • Posted in thread: About to pull the trigger.... Help me! on 07-28-2014 at 06:59 PM
    I was thinking of getting the amount of water I need by using 1 gallon jugs of Nestle Pure life
    water. Will it make a difference if I use tap water instead of bottled?The water they're
    talking about i...

    A couple things:1) In reference to your questions - you say you have a kettle large enough for
    a 5 gallon brew: how large, exactly? Keep in mind you're going to boil for an hour, typically,
    which mean...

    Yeah - the instructions on the bottle are a little odd. For whatever reason, they do instruct
    you to wipe the stuff off, or to let it dry. Yet the maker has, in various presentations,
    stated that this...

    I agree - Looks pretty good to me - but can you clarify something about your sanitation
    process:You said you poured some Star San solution in there, swirled it around, then turned it
    upside down to le...
