    Really? I'm using star-san in my 3-piece airlock and have to top them up every couple weeks.I
    use vodka and 3 piece airlocks, and I also have to top up every 3-6 weeks. I've been thinking
    about going ...

    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...
