    Thanks so much for the replies guys!Hopper: Those calculators look really helpful, thanks for
    the links. As far as reading up on the subject, I think I'll take a look at the stickies, I've
    looked at P...

    So as a professional science geek (molecular bio) I'm surprised that I haven't spent more time
    in this forum until recently. I emailed my local water authority and asked for the water report
    for my ad...

    It may be but i can't be sure. I know that true peristaltic rated tubing is softer.I believe
    you're right, we use Cole Parmer Masterflex Platinum tubing at work on our peristaltic pumps,
    and it seems ...

    I could just be lucky, but my LHBS (Brew and Wine Hobby - East Hartford, CT) lets me bag my own
    grain, weigh it myself, then tell them the weight at the register. They don't even weigh it

    $45 plus actual shipping from 06518. I'm calculating that it will weigh around 8lbs when packed
    (tare weight on the tank reads 7.5 lbs).Date on the tank is 2010, so it won't need a hydrotest
    until 201...

    I work in an industrial lab and all the stainless vessels that are jacketed use steam. I'm not

    I concur with taking that tube out of your braid. I run my mashes at 1.25 and have no problems
    with my braid. The only stuck sparge I've ever had was with my pumpkin ale, but that's another

    Hmm, well if you put the bottles through all that then it's not the bottles. I'd check your
    racking equipment or priming procedure as previously noted

  • Posted in thread: Multiple Contaminated Batches on 03-09-2012 at 11:45 PM
    It very well could be your bottles. If you're using the same bottles from batch to batch you
    could have some sort of infection that is carrying over (possibly brettanomyces or another
    sour?) If you're...
