  • Posted in thread: Loose lid and time in primary on 01-20-2017 at 07:12 AM
    What's the point of racking to a secondary that early? It's more work, and I can only think of
    downsides. Yes, it may be fine. But will it be the best it could be? I think you're putting
    yourself at a...

    the pressure will go up proportional to temperature (since volume is basically fixed). so
    373/300=1.24 atmospheres, assuming it's 1 atm inside at room T.Or 24kPa, or 3.5 psi. Definitely
    won't explode ...

    Edit: ^ this ^I'm sure it wouldn't explode, but I would worry about how the plastic/rubber
    parts would hold up to boiling. Why do you want to boil it? Why not just use a sanitizer?I
    wouldn't actually ...

    Would one of these clear beer draught system canisters be safe in boiling wort? It's basically
    a sealed, stainless steel bubble. I assume boiling temps would be okay, but I have no real idea
    how much ...

  • Posted in thread: How do you "double" a beer recipe (and I don't mean the quantity)? on 01-15-2017 at 04:16 PM
    To take any given recipe from a baseline to a double/imperial, a good starting point is to:-
    Increase the base malt to the gravity you want.- Increase the bitterness. How much, that'll
    take some judge...

    I'd be curious to see how it goes for you. I've thought about doing the same ( I think I'm
    looking at 50+ feet though. It would beat carrying 10+ gallon batches that distance and down

    I had shivers at the thought of a peanut butter IPA. But a black NE style IPA makes sense to
    me. Your grainbill looks good to me. Hot-side hops look slim to me, but I've never made a NE
    style, so "?".

    I know the time has passed, but I think another consideration would have been: do you keg or
    bottle? IF there was an infection, 99.9% (ok, an estimate:)) was London III. If you keg, that
    yeast is high...

  • Posted in thread: How Long Is A Batch Of Star San Good?? on 12-02-2016 at 10:36 PM
    I use distilled water, and it lasts FOREVER. I essentially have a solera of Starsan. I keep a 5
    gallon bucket and a keg of it at all times. I use it to fill and purge kegs, so it's constantly
    moving a...

    Should be fine. I'd disconnect the gas when you move it to the serving temp and leave it off
    while it gets down to temp. Shouldn't matter, really, just what I'd do.Of course, you'll need
    to know what ...
