    Dry English Ale (yeast)Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this WLP007?I think we should go with
    a moderate rye flavor... to allow it to stand out as a "rye beer" but not so much as to detract
    from eve...

  • Posted in thread: 70-quart Maxcold Ice Cube for MLT? on 02-20-2007 at 11:25 PM
    I would recommend taking a look at the spigot on the 'Cube. I've got a standard Ice Cube, and I
    tried putting a bulkhead / SS braid in it, and the angle cause the braid to stick up at a 45
    degree angl...

  • Posted in thread: Mash out on 02-20-2007 at 03:34 AM
    That is absolutely the way to mash out if you don't have direct heat.In a typical 10-12 lb
    grain bill, I'll mash in with about 1.25 qts/lb, and dump in another gallon of near-boiling
    water to mash out...

    Home Depot sells a SS Toilet supply line, for much cheaper than the washer line or other lines
    I saw. It was mixed in with a lot of plastic lines, but just read the packaging carefully and

  • Posted in thread: A timing question simple (I think) on 02-19-2007 at 08:04 AM
    Depends on the brew. If it's not a high-gravity brew, go ahead and transfer. If it's a big
    beer, or something you need to lager (doesn't sound like it based on the 60's degree ferm
    temps), you might w...

  • Posted in thread: decrease carbonation if you use secondary fermintation? on 02-19-2007 at 05:47 AM
    I don't know if this is your case or not, but higher ABV% brews will naturally take longer to
    carbonate. I had a red ale that I used honey in the boil, and made it more alcoholic than my
    other brews. ...

    Have not been using the hydrometer, need to start I guess.Nah, it's not too critical unless
    you're in a hurry. It's nice to see if your beer is done, but they sometimes cause more
    headache than they'r...

  • Posted in thread: Okay guys...my Sanyo 4912 is half way there on 02-17-2007 at 10:57 PM
    Had one other thought...What issues, if any, are there with the holes you drilled not being
    airtight. Do you lose much cooling out the holes and/or does it run all the time? Would it be
    practical and ...
