  • Posted in thread: Miller tap handle on a Coors keg on 05-26-2007 at 04:23 AM
    I remember many weekends (lost weekends?) in Wisconsin drinking "Beer X" in a glass from a keg
    with "Beer Y" painted on the label of the glass. Always made me raise an eyebrow, so this
    doesn't surpris...

    First of all, if conservation of resources is your goal, making ice consumes a lot of
    energy.I'm not debating that, because you're right. It just seems to me that whatever chiller
    method you use there...

    Just curious, but don't wort chillers consume A LOT of water to cool the wort? I kinda have a

    I've seen a couple of extract recipes that suggest you steep your grains until the water starts

    better ide...

  • Posted in thread: Airlock fouling? on 04-23-2007 at 03:59 AM
    I came upon my amber in primary today in my cooler. The airlock had been fouled by an
    overactive fermentation in my cooler (set to 63 F + or - 3 degrees). Beer had bubbled up into
    the airlock and push...

    I indicated "other", because it depends on the recipe and how the beer has fermented. If after
    a week, I have met my target FG, no need to secondary.

    Maybe you should post the recipe so we can see how fermentable the grains were. . .

    from primary to secondary or from secondary to bottle. The taste (even 6+ weeks on) is rather
    weak/thin to...
