I forgot to add that I use fermcap this time. Still the same issue. I have never had the
banana/fruity ester flavor in my beers that you are encountering. I will try the next time to
not use the fermw...

I have a weird issue that happens when I temp control. I would love to have a time lapse camera
on my temp readout and on the carboy so I could actually see what is causing it. I use a chest

It was a 150 rest. All-grain. 85% 2-row, 10% white wheat, 5% crystal 20. I realize it is in
their attenuation range but I typically get in the low to mid teens on a beer of this sort.

Long story short, I am using WLP007 (a heavy flocculating yeast) on a 1.071 OG beer. At around

Doh! I'll look for MPT (need to figure out that size) to 1/4" barb. I forgot I had adapters in
place to hook my garden hose to the current setup. Thanks all for sanity check.

The picture below is from the MoreBeer beer filter. I already have the same filter and all the
other parts except the Male Garden Hose to what looks like a 1/4" barb. Can't find it in my
Posted in thread: Anyone have a Hanna 96811 Digital Refractometer? Any tips for accurate readings? on 05-16-2012 at 04:42 PM
Link to the refractometer: wanted to post up and see if anyone out here in HBtalk land has
one of these? I have one and, frankly, I don't trust it 100%. Here's my typical procedure when
I go to use ...
Posted in thread: Homemade hop back on 04-27-2012 at 10:33 PM
I am planning in hunting at the depot to try and build a hop back. I believe my best shot for
how I want to do this is with PVC. For this reason I will be using this after the chiller.
Anybody run a h...

Looks sweet!! are you going to put a lid on it or is it gravity feed?While I have a lid I don't

Thought I would post up a few pics of my homemade hop back that I just finished. Basically it's
a 2qt Polarware bain marie with some fittings welded onto it. I haven't done a brew on it. Plan
to use i...
