    Definitely taste the beer before filling out the forms. Many beers have won competitions by
    figuring out what you made after the fact!

  • Posted in thread: You know you're a home brewer when? on 02-05-2017 at 03:17 AM
    When you've been home brewing for 17 years and started out with all grain and your buddy who
    got a Mr. Beer kit for Christmas calls and ask if you can help him brew a beer and you have to
    read the ins...

    I mentioned this a long time ago but it seems some were either confused or didn't feel like
    reading this whole thread! I don't blame you! We always make a cereal mash for two reasons. One
    is you do ne...

    Not sure about the carafa but we've found that equal parts of chocolate and 120 to 150 lovibond
    crystal seems to pop the chocolate flavor.

    I might switch out the crystal with some Vienna or Munich depending on what SRM you wanted to

    We've been using one of these for several years now and really like it. It will take 5 psi and
    allows kegging under pressure. Right from the fermenter tap to the OUT valve of your CO2 filled
    keg. It h...

  • Posted in thread: What kind of beer is it? on 10-02-2016 at 04:29 PM
    That's what we call our garbage beer! Whatever is left we throw it in there, in fact we are due
    for one soon! We always make the beer and then figure out what it is after we taste it. That's
    how you w...

    Might just be some of the oil from the cheese sandwich floating on top. If you pulled from
    under it and it taste good and smells good then I wouldn't worry too much. You might bottle it
    and put the bo...

    My apologies, I just reread the OP post and realized he was still in the fermenter. I cold
    crash in the keg after I force carbonate. A friend of mine likes to syphon to another car boy
    and cold crash ...

    The Ultra Flow ones might have been the ones CHI was selling. I had one and should have kept it
    but I threw it away so who knows. Oh well, I'm glad I got the ones I did. I have one working
    and will be...
