    Seems like the longer my investigation into people's feelings on Notty, the colder the
    suggested average fermentation temps go. I've got the mild equipped with the A419 probe taped
    to the carboy betwe...

    Sounds good. I'll give that a try next time. Sunday, we brewed a British mild. I boiled half a
    cup of tap water and left it sit on the stove and cool while we mashed and sparged. When we
    started cooli...

    What is the suggested liquid replacement for Notty? Probably a little late now, as we have a

    in a Reaper's...

    Nottingham was used in the beer that shows the most off flavor. Not diacetyl, or acetaldehyde,

    taste I can't ...

    So, over the course of many batches I have changed several variables and seen pros and cons
    with almost every changed variable. What I have noticed is always consistent is that anytime
    I've used dry y...

  • Posted in thread: New cooling system; wort looks different on 01-04-2016 at 05:31 AM
    So, in the past I have experienced feathery white particulate in the boil -what I have come to
    understand is the hop break- and after cooling via a gravity feed through a cfc, the wort going
    into the ...

    I am definitely considering Kals diagram, just trying to be sure I've got my ducks in a row
    before I start building. I'm very much still in a research phase, and I love keeping a thread
    running while ...

    We're wanting to add an element to our HLT for an eherms system. The idea is to build a very
    simple controller with just one pid and ssr to run a single element. With this design we could
    easily add a...

    Thank you guys for your responses! In a very embarrassing turn of events, I must update the
    thread with my mistake. All the while it was the big beer churning away and attenuation as it
    should. The sm...
