    another trick that I've been doing this this syringe and the soft vinyl tubing (SS tube
    optional) is to use it to start a siphon.PROBLEM: i have many 1 gallon jugs that i use for
    fermenting. my standa...

    stumbled across something interesting. Does anyone think this could work? yes, this would
    work as far as i can tell. however it's less ideal than syringe + hard SS tube, IMO:- the SS
    tube is hard an...

    fun project!I plan on racking onto the cherries and holding them there until the winter, i.e. 6
    months or so. you could do a shorter time on cherries. if you've got bugs in there (see next
    question), ...

    I only have 1 3 gal glass carboy, currently full of a 100% Brett L saison that has been there
    for 3 months. I checked gravity about a month ago and it was 1.017 (OG was 1.062).If Gravity is

    So back in February I brewed a standard English brew (pale, crystal, fuggles), fermented with

    slush left...

    no harm in taking a chance, if you've got the space. if you're down to 1.006, you're safe to
    move to a smaller secondary right away. any brett you add will be slow and likely won't cause a
    big ferment...

  • Posted in thread: My Weldless Build Using Strut on 07-29-2015 at 01:20 AM
    I think I did this wrong but oh well. meh. i wouldn't worry about it too much - if it works,
    that's all that counts. using strut for our builds is over-kill, these things could hold 50x
    the weight tha...
