Posted in thread: Cold crashing New England Pale ale on 09-30-2016 at 12:20 AM
My apologies, I just reread the OP post and realized he was still in the fermenter. I cold

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...

I did just see a difference, you have the wire brushed finish or satin finish, whatever they
called it. Mine are polished. That's all I can see different. Would like to know if the
internals are the s...

I don't see Ultra-Flo V under the Vent-matic name on your faucets. The last Ventmatics look

thick but shou...

a couple of shots of the last of the Vent-matics. You can see the machined teeth and the
smooth bore along with the nice threads. True quality. Truly a shame they are defunct. It seems
that they cou...
Posted in thread: 90min vs. 60min boil on 09-26-2016 at 09:49 PM
We always boil 90 minutes and add hops at 60. Our kettle is set up for that and we always hit
our numbers on gravity so why change anything! Well, I take that back, we don't boil at all
when we make Z...

When I first tried FWH it was when we made our first IPA. It not only made for a "seemingly"
smoother bitterness but it gave it a hop flavor 20 seconds after you swallowed! Never had a
