    I'm going against the grain and recommending you get the 19 gallon kettle. I get that most if
    not all of your batches will be 5 gallons but when, and you will decide to brew up a double
    batch of your ...

  • Posted in thread: I uninvite myself to brew days... Do you? on 05-22-2014 at 07:30 PM
    I get what the OP is saying, I'm very much like this. It's a part of me that I want to change
    about myself. In situations like this I take a few deep breaths, a few swigs of beer and try to
    sit back a...

  • Posted in thread: Kona, Fire Rock Pale Ale (AG Clone) on 05-08-2014 at 01:10 AM
    This recipe is outstanding! Although I have to say that I prefer the beer cloudy than clear. I
    feel it loses something when the yeast drop. I've never had the original Fire Rock so can't
    compare. Than...

  • Posted in thread: Do you drink your failures? on 04-24-2014 at 02:15 AM

    Dumb question- but if you don't want to raise your sulfate, why are you adding magesium
    sulfate? I don't understand that.Calcium of 150 ppm is unnecessarily high. I'd go with 50-75
    ppm if you want eno...

  • Posted in thread: Increasing Calcium on 04-17-2014 at 09:20 PM
    Thanks for the quick replies.I have several reasons why I want to keep my sulfate levels on the
    lower end and my calcium up a bit. I want to brew a well balanced American Amber Ale and keep
    the really...

    Is it ok to increase calcium with slaked lime, then compensate my mash ph with lactid acid? I'm
    brewing an amber ale and want to harden my water without increasing my sulfate levels. Cheers.

    I work for a company that services fire extinguishers. I fill them myself for free. :)

    Bramling Cross. I've had several beers with this hop and I find it rather disgusting.
