  • Started in Grad School, did extract only and some AG as a group. Since then on and off extract kits but am now trying to get to the grain as my tastes have expanded...
  • My goal brews are mostly Munich Helles, Oktoberfest-Marzens, and some Russian beers I've tried like Tinkoff and Baltica. nTop of the list will be Paualner Lager (the unfiltered amber you get in their restaurant in downtown Munich - not in the brauhaus), Augustiner (Helles, Edelstoff & Marzen), and Tinkoff Unfiltered Lager (drank it in Moldova and was perfect).

    I don't care how lazy you are, an over night soak with hot water and about an ounce of PBW will
    clean anything out of those buckets, lines, siphons, and so on.I don't know... I have an old
    crusty carb...

    [QUOTE=ere109;4197146]Slightly... I was trying to adapt the post to 1/2" pvc. Turns out, the
    keg shop originally sold me 19/32" Cornelius posts. I couldn't find anything at Home Depot to
    adapt to that...

    doing the rest of my beers in cornies using the closed-system pressurized fermentation
    system.I'm working into this too... I hate the heavy glass carboys so use better bottles now.
    Besides, if I used...

    I've done a few all nighters too. My neighbors didn't appreciate all the water hose cleaning
    and pot scrubbing at 3AM! Plus it's a PITA when your brew day starts warm enough for shorts,
    but you end up...

  • Posted in thread: secondary fermentation in cornie keg - airlock needed? on 06-26-2012 at 02:41 AM
    I'd not use an airlock but release pressure now and then. Secondaries still ferment and produce
    CO2 - if you put a spunding valve on you won't have to worry about it and can start the carb
    process off...

  • Posted in thread: Delayed Pitch & Racked Wort on 06-26-2012 at 02:28 AM
    I've seen a few posts about fermenting in heat resistant food grade buckets by pitching the day
    after, but I thought I'd take my poor planning and laziness to the next level in my last two
    brews. I'd ...

    You CAN top off, why do you think beersmith and all the other software have a DILLUTION
    CALCULATOR to begin with.Yeah I missed the dilution tool - very simple in hindsight. I was
    trying to see the add...

  • Posted in thread: boiled off too much wort!!! on 05-21-2012 at 08:43 PM
    But if I boil off too much (very low humidity right now!), and I'm too high on my OG, I add
    water to get to the correct OG.Won't the water addition change the bitterness profile?
    According to BeerSmi...

  • Posted in thread: Next question Ice Vs. Wort chiller on 03-03-2012 at 02:27 AM
    Wort chiller definitely. I just got a Therminator and a pump and am wondering why I waited so
    long to get this. Life is much easier with these toys... And I never will buy ice again (except
    maybe dead...
