Posted in thread: Fast force carbonate at room temperature with no shaking? on 07-10-2014 at 05:15 PM
There's no such thing.Huh. I've read multiple times on here that the rapid introduction of acid
when force carbing takes a while to blend with the blend with the the flavor of the beer. I've
read for ...

You guys are correct, my way is more complicated, but... my method will end up with better
beer, right? I mean, your recommended method will definitely leave me with a carbonic acid off
flavor on day ...

That looks pretty slick, and the option of switches to control power is nice and simple.I used
to use a friend's system in the UK with a 3kW kettle element in a keggle, and that was fine for
40 UK pin...
Posted in thread: What is your experience with pitching slightly warm - 75-78 degrees? on 07-09-2014 at 05:41 PM
You know what, I am having the exact same problem with just my hoppy ales, and I pitch at
pretty much the exact same temperatures as you. I don't know how to describe my off flavor
either but it's bee...

Thanks guys, I decided what the hell and bought four of them. Just installed them and they are

Posted in thread: Help: 120v for 10g batch? New BK/HLT on 07-08-2014 at 04:25 PM
I'm probably one of the few here set up to do 10G batches in their kitchen with just 120V
outlets, although I really have only been doing 5 gallon batches lately. I'm using three
seperate 20A circuits...

Yes you can quick carbonate at room temp without shaking. If my keg's at 38 degrees F I do 30
PSI for 24 hours, then drop to whatever PSI I want to maintain. For room temp (~70 degrees F) I
have done ...

I have a keg that I fermented in recently that I want to fast carbonate at room temperature.
This keg is my primary fermentation vessel, so I don't want to shake it up, I want to up the
PSI to get it ...

Before I go and buy a bunch of these things, I figured I'd double check with the experts
first.Right now I'm using two 120V 1500W elements in my boil keggle. They work fine, but I'd
like to get them l...

Anyone make any progress on creating the extract or doing hop experiments with the stuff? I'm
really intrigued by extract and am going to have to make some soon.
