  • Posted in thread: Do You Travel For Work, If So How Do You Do It? on 01-07-2014 at 03:01 AM
    Hey All. I am currently in the job interview process for a job that would require me to travel
    around 50% of time. If offered the position, I will be taking it. I've been working from home
    for the las...

    Sorry for the confusion, but it has only been in primary for 8 days now. Being that the gravity
    has changed, it's definitely fermenting, so that's good. But I guess my question now pertains
    to the aff...

    I've had it fermenting at an ambient temp of around 66, so that's on par for the US-04 to go
    gangbusters. As for my AG setup, I batch sparge. I mashed at 154 and my measured OG was 1.065.
    After taking...

    So my second AG batch has been in secondary for a week now and is currently experiencing the
    same issue my first AG batch had. There is little to no krausen in the primary. The recipes
    were converted ...

    Thank you all very much for the suggestions when it comes to pre-heating the mash tun. I'll
    keep that in mind for my next brew, which I might do this coming weekend just to get the
    process ingrained, ...

    Started first thing this morning and am currently mashing. I'm finding that "the best laid
    plans of mice and men often go astray" very quickly. I had everything planned out lastnight as
    to how much wa...

    Yes, you can dump all the sparge water in at one time and then do one long drain to collect all
    your wort, provided you have enough room in your mash tun to hold all the water. This is how I
    do it, an...

    It sounds like you didn't set up your preferences in Beersmith. Of course you can add it all at
    one time. The easiest way to do this the first time is to mash in and described, then drain the
    mash tun...

    Hey gang. I'm finally going to be brewing my first all grain batch tomorrow. It's a pale ale
    recipe that has turned out incredibly well in my extract batches. I've been playing around in
    Beersmith try...

    Can I ask how old you guys are being that you have day jobs as well as running the brewery? I'm
    hoping to do the same in the next year or so and just wanted to know what it was like for other
    folks.
