  • Posted in thread: is 0.8 gallon a lot of trub in a 6.4 gallons batch? on 02-01-2014 at 08:59 PM
    I am talking about trub in the brew kettle. The fermentor part that I leave behind is mainly
    the yeast cake and I dont have any control over that, but I thought I might be doing something
    wrong leave ...

    Yep, a thief is great for that, though I've also used the auto-siphon. You just need a sample
    tube large enough to accept the hydrometer and allow it to spin a bit (not too snug, in other
    words).Buy s...

    It sucks, but that's often normal. It really depends on a few factors, including the type of
    hop used (as in, pellets vs. leaf) and the yeast used.I've been buying my hops from
    HopsDirect.com, and the...

    +1 for the +1. "Don't Worry" is the mantra 'round these parts, for good reason. It's beer, not
    rocket science (although it CAN be, if you want to take it to the next few levels). I usually
    go 3-5 week...

    I read through *most* of the many pages, and I'm still not sure what the *right* answer is. I
    am clearly in the camp of don't use a secondary unless there is a clear reason to do so. To me,

  • Posted in thread: Hop-free beer? on 11-24-2013 at 02:51 PM
    My dad hates hoppy beers. He's talked about brewing a beer with no hops for quite some time.
    So, today we went ahead and did one. It was an all-grain budweiser clone from Midwest brewing.
    We brewed it...

    The addition of spring water will help accentuate your hops, so that seems in line with what
    you're trying to achieve.Cascade is a very citrusy hop, so it should blend well. Alternatively,
    you could t...
