  • Posted in thread: How to avoid buying old hops? on 02-04-2013 at 10:34 PM
    Can you tell the age or "harvest year" before you buy a bag of hop pellets? I've never seen a
    lable or "expiration date" or "harvest date" type info on a bag. Is there any kind of industry
    standard? I...

  • Posted in thread: 1-Gallon Brewers UNITE! on 02-04-2013 at 07:40 PM
    I've only ever done 5 gallon batches, but I'm thinking my next few will be 1 or 2.5.I've got
    the procedure down. I've finally made beer that I think is great by following recipies from
    others. Now, I ...

  • Posted in thread: Mashing/Brewing Two Beers at Once on 02-04-2013 at 07:32 PM
    It seems like with the 2 transfers and wait time, the wort for your 2nd batch would have cooled
    a bit. Net effect, your specialty grains would be seeping at a lower temp than the base beer.I

  • Posted in thread: Chiller - outer diameter or inner? on 02-01-2013 at 02:55 PM
    I see coils of 3/8ths copper tubing. Some are labled where 3/8ths is the inner diameter and
    some where its the outer diameter.So, with all the posts on this site debating 3/8ths vs 1/2
    inch, are peopl...

  • Posted in thread: Turkey Fryer Question on 01-20-2013 at 03:58 AM
    This fryer was a "master built." It looked really old. I typed the model number into seach
    engines and nothing came back, so I'm assuming pretty old. At least it had no timers or safety
    devices.I shou...

    Gathering equipment to do all grain. Was about to buy my first turkey fryer, when suddenly,
    like magic, there was one on the side of the road, like prime roadkill. I ran it for 10 minutes
    and it seems...

    Thanks all. Based on the answers here, I tried it again... and its already much quieter.Since I
    could now leave water in it, I filled it with 10 gallons just to test for leaks and heat
    retention. It i...

  • Posted in thread: crackling noise from rubbermaid mash tun on 04-17-2012 at 06:18 PM
    Hi, I just made a mash tun from a 10-gallon rubbermaid cooler (the "standard" build that I see
    all over). I did notice that the inside liner is slightly warped inwards, if that matters.I
    just tested i...
