  • Posted in thread: reliability: refrigerator vs. temp-controlled freezer on 05-11-2013 at 07:46 PM
    The compressor on our fridge just went out and we're looking to buy a new one (sticker shock
    :eek: ). This led me to wonder if it would be more reliable to buy an upright freezer and put a
    Johnson tem...

  • Posted in thread: First lager and when to diacetyl rest on 12-17-2011 at 02:13 PM
    I remember John Palmer saying to do the DR when you see the krausen begin to fall back into the
    wort. Doesn't sound very scientific, but it seemed to work in my case. There was enough action
    left to g...

  • Posted in thread: temp controller died so I'm winging it on 12-15-2011 at 01:30 AM
    When I went to pitch the yeast on my first lager Sunday night, I accidently dropped my home
    made temp controller on the garage floor. It didn't look broken, but the relay must be
    damaged/stuck because...

    thanks guys.

    Yesterday, I pitched my lager starter(WLP820) straight from a 35F fridge into 3.5 gallons of
    40F degree wort. I set my fridge temp controller to 55F. My plan was to allow the temp to creep
    up througho...

  • Posted in thread: what experiment should i do? on 12-10-2011 at 09:37 PM
    Cool. I think I'll do a variation on that idea and put 1 in the temp controlled fridge at a
    constant 50F, and the other just in the garage where the temp will be allowed to fluctuate
    naturally and see...

    I just brewed a Marzen and ended up with 2 better bottles with exactly 3.5 gallons of wort
    each. This seems like a great opportunity for an experiment.Stats: OG: 1.048 IBU: 20.1 Grain:

  • Posted in thread: How old is "too old" to resurect liquid yeast on 12-10-2011 at 04:30 PM
    My last batch was a Swarzbeir made with WLP060 that was leftover from a previous batch that i'd
    made over a year ago. I saved just enough of the cake to fit back in the original WL vial. I
    dropped the...

    Congrats! - Report back if you remember on how the beer turned out. That of course is what is
    important.I sure will. My only concern is not knowing how much of those sugars are
    unfermentable, seeing a...

    Just calculated my effic. From yesterday's brew. I got 75.6% (6 gallons @ 1.070 - 15 pounds of
    Munich 10L). What I did was strike 26 quarts for a 154F initial temp. This was around lunch
    time. Then, I...
