    Sent SWMBO to the LHBS to grab some hops for the brew this weekend and she came home with NZ
    Cascade. Close enough I suppose. AA% is 8.5 or something. Anyone notice and particular
    differences between ...

    The way I'm set up, one controller probe is in a large jar of water, the controller is set to
    11C and it runs the fridge. The second controller probe is taped to the carboy, the controller
    is set to ...

    I have two of these: Johnson Controls A419 and they work really well.One runs my fridge, the

    Used that yeast for a beer last weekend. My starter did exactly that. Chunky.

  • Posted in thread: Is this yeast normal? Ive never seen it like this before on 05-18-2012 at 03:34 PM
    I've seen that before. Seems to be yeast that stuck to the sides on its way to the bottom. Some
    of it eventually settled to the bottom for me, some was still there when I bottled. Racked away
    from it ...

  • Posted in thread: More Buckets or a Carboy? on 05-17-2012 at 03:51 PM
    I've never had a problem getting my glass carboys squeaky clean, no matter how much
    fermentation funk is clinging to the insides. I fill with hot tap water and PBW and leave it
    for a day or two (or mo...

    Another vote for 0.032. Like you, I started out with my MM2 around .045 but found my efficiency
    was about 60%. Made my crush a little finer and today I hit my targets bang on. I was aiming
    for around ...

    You could also have a look at Bosa Grape in Vancouver. They mostly do wine stuff but have moved
    into beer equipment and supplies recently. They have way more in store than what they show on
    their site...
