  • Posted in thread: Why is commercial beer getting more expensive? on 11-23-2015 at 08:18 PM
    Craft beer is much more expensive to make because they use more ingredients and they donít buy
    them by the trainload. There are other economies of scale.I can buy a lot of 8+% beers for
    $11.99. The in...

    is the airport, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. Nobody lives there.Dallas and Fort
    Worth are distinctly separate. Basically DFW is the dividing line. If you get it wrong, you
    will offend th...

  • Posted in thread: Swamp Cooling Temperature + Fermenter Temp? on 11-05-2015 at 01:54 AM
    My carboys are in water up to the level of the beer. The temperature of the beer, as measured
    with a thermowell, is always within 1̊F, even with a vigorous fermentation. You can get
    some wacky re...

    AlphaOmega has it exactly right. I think youíre taking the wrong voltage, and you really are
    rocking 240.To put it another way, with your numbers, the efficiency of going to strike was
    167%, going to ...

    The test strips I have are for total chlorine, they read the total of free chlorine and
    chloramine. I know I have 3ppm chloramine because the water dept told me so. This is the
    indication I get from t...

    Carbon works better than advertised to adsorb chloramine. I asked about it when I ordered a
    replacement cartridge. They sent me some chlorine test strips. They indicated 3 ppm, which is
    what the water...

    When I bottle I fill the first bottle until the air is gone from the hose and bottle filler. I
    add the last little bit of beer from after siphon starts glugging. I mark the cap on that one
    and drink i...

  • Posted in thread: pH calibration with wort temps on Milwaukee M102 on 09-01-2015 at 09:08 PM
    Readings should always be taken at 25C (77F). Unless a temperature is given, pH numbers are
    always assumed to be at 25C. If you take the reading hot, it will be a little lower. Hot
    solutions are more ...

  • Posted in thread: Swamp Cooler temp same as ambient? on 08-29-2015 at 01:39 AM
    I think you want the thermometer in the water. During strong fermentation the beer is well
    stirred by the evolving carbon dioxide. Before and after, the bottom is going to be a couple of
    degrees coole...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone else annoyed with newer breweries using cans? on 08-26-2015 at 05:31 PM
    I avoid plastic in my food. Can linings are particularly nasty. They are polycarbonate, made
    from bisphenol a resin. The FDA says itís okay, because the chemical companies say so.
    judging we use pla...
