  • Posted in thread: Brew stand build. Couple of questions and advice needed on 12-03-2016 at 02:39 PM
    Can't say I know anything about a tippy dump, but as far as the steel for a stand goes, I went
    with 2" mild steel - 14ga. That's to brew 10 gals on. A local trailer retailer/fabricator
    welded it all u...

    If you have implemented all of the above, and still have low conversion efficiency, then
    experimenting with decoction to see if it improves your conversion efficiency may be worth a
    try. This is parti...

    And you didn't stop in and see me??? Nice handles.We actually stayed in Soldotna for a few
    days. :-) The Kenai River was really crowded though. Combat fishing isn't all its made out to
    be. Not sure if...

    So my son and I went to Alaska this summer and on the way, the Alaska Airlines Lounge in
    Seattle had a Pyramid beer on tap with a sweet tap handle - if you love baseball like we do.
    Using the inserts ...

    Sounds like this was a kit? If its darker and hoppier than what you would expect from a kolsch,
    then sounds like you may have gotten an Amber Ale recipe kit.Have you contacted NB? They might
    be willin...

    You could also just use a regular indoor/outdoor thermometer. On of the probes going to the
    cask and the other hanging in the room. Unless you want to log temperatures, no need for the
    complexity of t...

    The waiting sure is tough. I have a few beers in the pipeline so im good with making more beer
    right now! I have about 7.5 gallons bottled right now, and 5 gal fermenting (A blonde &
    blueberry blond I...

  • Posted in thread: Switching to All-Grain on 08-28-2016 at 05:54 PM
    All-grain can certainly get as expensive as you want it to be. The mashtun and HLT are a big
    chuck of costs, but there are a lot of little things too - fittings, hoses, etc that sneak up
    on you.If you...

  • Posted in thread: New equipment flub - mash temp too high on 08-23-2016 at 10:35 PM
    Keep brewing and you'll figure it out over time. I went through 2 or 3 batches when I built a
    new HERMS system before I had it down.

  • Posted in thread: Trub Going Into Carboy - Bad or OK? on 08-23-2016 at 10:32 PM
    I whirlpool but generally don't worry too much except for volume to make sure I get my 10
    gallons. Unless you let it sit on trub too long, my experience is you don't get enough off
    flavors to notice, ...
