If you open the ball valve half-way while recirculating the hot PBW that should get them pretty
clean.Agreed. Just make sure to rotate the valve while recirculating. This has never been a
problem for ...

If the gravity is stable and ~1.011 (good middle ground), it's probably not infected. 5 months
would give those bugs plenty of time to chew threw the sugars that sacch can't and create some

Has anybody considered Vanilla Chai Tea bags in the secondary? This is purely coincidental but
I prepared this tea for my fiance over the weekend while I was having a pumking. I couldn't

Any chance we can get a consensus on this thread? I've been following it forever and it's
beginning to get a little difficult to find the pages with actual recipes. Basically, if you
