    It isn't very difficult or expensive to add a weldless fitting and a thermometer in the future.
    I've bought a good deal of the parts for my keggles from, with whom I have
    no affili...

  • Posted in thread: Any good beers with honey on 08-13-2013 at 05:05 PM
    It all depends on the honey and the yeast strain. I added 2.75 lbs to a saison that was
    fantastic, it did not dry it out too much, but it also didn't attenuate as expected. That was
    added at flame out...

    I soaked 2 vanilla beans in vodka for about 2 months, then poured the vodka in after 2 weeks of
    fermenting a porter. It worked out perfectly.

    I brewed a 10 gallon batch of red ale with 8 oz of debittered black barley (SRM 550) and it
    also came out brown. Mash was good at 152 degrees, I'm confident that I didn't scorch my wort,
    either. It ca...

  • Posted in thread: checking temp before pitching on 04-10-2013 at 05:48 PM
    I got a metal "poke" type thermometer at the not-so-LHBS that's about 8 inches long. It goes
    from 50* to 230* F. I used to use it in my boils as well as checking my cooled wort. Since
    going electric I...

    Grain crush, mash time and mash temp are critical. Grain should be crushed to .035 mm, don't
    misread the feeler gauge. Mash for 1 hour before you start your sparge. Your target temp should
    be between ...

  • Posted in thread: What do you put your ekettles on? on 04-09-2013 at 06:00 PM
    I put my e-keggle on cinder blocks until I get around to building a slightly less ghetto brew
    stand. I built it to have a drain right at the bottom to get as much beer out as possible.
