Posted in thread: Unplanned Decoction? on 02-10-2013 at 03:24 PM
So I originally planned on doing a Double Decoction for a Hefeweizen I am (currently) brewing.
I decided against it due to time constraints. The mash temps for 60 minutes were actually
closer to 145 d...
Posted in thread: JC A419 temp controller question- on 01-29-2013 at 02:38 AM
I need to check for the green light. Maybe it's something to do with the freezer (though I
don't see how if it doesn't have power?). It contains my 5 gallons of beer in a carboy. Luckily
the SA-05 isn...

I'm using a chest freezer and the Johnson controls A419 to control the fermentation temps. I

So... I just tasted New Belgium's Belgo-IPA and it totally reminds me of the easiest beer I
have ever made in my life, so I thought I would pass along the info. Ya, it probably isn't by

I have had to waste more than a couple batches... Brewing is a tough science when you lack the

Well, having tried a weizen myself using a dry yeast, I can say that the results were not
great. I contacted the company (mine was actually Fermentis) and they suggested-"We found that
adding some glu...
Posted in thread: Side by side fridge for simultaneous chilling AND fermentation on 10-18-2011 at 08:14 PM
I have my beer in the fridge section currently, but I am thinking about trying something-
keeping the keg on tap in the freezer section, and fiddling with the thermostat on the fridge
