    You might be perceiving the fruity yeast esters as sweet. Also, how well carbonated is the
    beer? Saisons are usually pretty bubbly, which contributes to the perceived dryness. 30 IBU
    seems like a good...

    I was going to ask if you were using something bigger than the 5 gal tank like a 7gal
    industrial tank. The OPD float could be damaged and did not shut the flow off at the correct
    volume.Nope just a st...

    I know a lot of people in the blacksmithing community who use propane set their tanks in a tub
    of water, it helps keep the temperature of the propane from getting too cold too quickly.
    Propane forges ...

    Blichmann burners with their regs for ~4 years and mine are the opposite of touchy - they've
    always been ...

    Hi all… I just got my propane tank refilled and I think they overfilled it a bit. I'm having a
    problem keeping my Blichmann burner going. The regulator gets frosty and after a few minutes
    the pressure...

    Fergsbrew, it sounds like you're teaching at college or community college level if even some of
    your students are over 21. I'm sure you could find lots of equipment in the biology and
    chemistry depart...

    How successful have you been creating a new starter from the vile you filled? Do you use more
    than 1 vile to create your next starter?I've been doing two-step starters. What I end up with
    in the vial ...

  • Posted in thread: What to do with empty yeast vials on 10-04-2013 at 06:54 PM
    I clean and sanitize them, then pour a little bit of each starter back into the vial before I
    pitch.I also use one to store my hydrometer. I have a little 1.06 hydrometer that fits
    perfectly inside a ...

    steambath unless y...
