    I use the plastic lid from an old fermenting bucket with a bunch of holes drilled in it. Works
    great. If you spare slow enough there is no need but every now and again my pump valve gets
    away from me....

    I used a Dremel for mine and it took ages to cut all the slots but works great. Instead of SS
    braid I used a short piece of silicone tubing. Also Palmer would recommend not cutting slots in
    the two en...

    I prepare an extra 1/2 gallon just to be safe and just quit sparging when I hit my pre boil
    volume. You can always pick up a 10 gallon igloo HLT and slowly dump it into the mash tun also.
    Another nice...

    Put foil on top and leave it in fridge , I've used starters after one week without
    problems.Good thing is that you will be able to decant liquid from top of starter, and also
    yeast will have enough ti...

  • Posted in thread: Dual Stage Fermentation Chamber getting too hot on 12-23-2012 at 02:14 PM
    I bubble wrap my temp probe to the outside also and have noticed the same thing, air
    significantly hotter than beer. I use a fermometer on my car boys and beer stays where I want.
    Overly hot surroundi...

    I just finished the d rest and cold crashed on a classic American pilsner and the sample I took
    to check for diacetyl and gravity was fairly clear but not crystal as I was hoping. No I am not

  • Posted in thread: Second Batch Red Ale on 12-13-2012 at 02:15 AM
    I only use secondary for long aging, or if yeast harvesting a dry hop beer. Also unless you
    have the wrong volume it is almost impossible to miss the SG by very much. Although some
    variation is expect...

    Obviously there is a higher chance of infection but also because there will not be any cold
    break beer will most likely be quite hazy

  • Posted in thread: Recirculation techniques on 09-09-2012 at 04:24 AM
    Put a ball valve on the output of your pump and recirc for 10 minutes at the end of mash. Or
    use your immersion chiller as a herms setup and recirc the entire mash time. Never had a stuck
    mash with th...

  • Posted in thread: Sparge water question on 05-14-2012 at 10:26 AM
    I have been reading Gordon Strongs book and just realized I may have been making a mistake and
    was hoping for some clarification. He states your sparge water needs to be pH 5.5 very clearly.
    He also r...
