    On February 16, I brewed a sunshine wheat recipe A week or so later, I put in in the secondary.
    Then I had a ton of travel and other things come up and did not have the opportunity to bottle
    it. Is it...

  • Posted in thread: Sanitizer injecctor in bottle tree? on 03-26-2006 at 10:39 PM
    I think it's personal preference. I love my bottle tree, but prefer to soak my bottles in a
    laundry sink with an iodophor solution, then let them drain on the bottle rack. I like the idea
    of sanitizin...

    Curious...what does steeping a non-crystal malt like 2-row add to the brew? Starch, thus
    mouthfeel? Something else?

    Thank you for all yor input. I did go to McMenamins south of Portland, as I took a side trip to
    Oregon. Good food, interesting beers. I also stopped at Pyramid in downtown Seattle. It is no
    longer a b...

    I also had problems similar to this which I attributed to insufficient wort oxygenation. Since
    I started using oxygen (1-2 minutes through a .5 micron steel stone), this has not been an
    issue. Further...

  • Posted in thread: At what temperature does fermentation become "dangerous"? on 03-09-2006 at 10:02 PM
    Keep in mind that the temperature of the room, even near your fermenter, is likely to be 5-10
    degrees cooler than the actual temperature inside the fermenter. So, a room at 75 degrees or
    more is likel...

    Also, using a fine mesh bag, like a large hops or grain bag, helps eliminate some (not all) of

    I am headed to Seattle next week for the first time since I was married. I wonder whether there
    are any outstanding brew pubs I should visit. If so, I appreciate the recommendations!

    Anything between 40-50 degreees F should be fine. I wouldn't go above 50 though. Why is this? I
    don't keg yet, I bottle. Most of what I've read says to bottle condition at about 70 degrees.
    Is there a...

  • Posted in thread: Bottling: How long until carbonation? on 03-01-2006 at 11:25 PM
    I brewed an American Ale and want to bottle it sooner than I normally would. It had 5 days in
    the primary, and is just about at target gravity. I have about two weeks between now and the
    date I want t...
