    They have to get it to you somehow. 373314

  • Posted in thread: What else can I do to work against me? on 10-01-2016 at 07:44 PM
    I'd think the grains would go stale, the hops would be dead, and the LME would be a bit funky,
    but otherwise you'll be OK;) It'll be beer in the end.

  • Posted in thread: What are you doing instead of brewing this weekend? on 10-01-2016 at 07:40 PM
    Drywall. Ugh. Never again. Just a small section but it is still a PITA. At least it is a good
    excuse to drink beer. And to keep it based in the forum, I tested my Pilsner after I did the
    last seam tap...

    So I took a reading on Thursday, day 10, and it came in at 1.016, and tasted a bit sweet. OG
    was 1.054. I decided it was time for the D-rest so I turned the temp up to 60. Fermentation
    took off again....

    I actually set up the temp 2 degrees yesterday to 49, and now this morning it is more active
    again. I guess the answer to my own question is yes. I'll take a reading once the bubbling
    stops.It is good...

    I set it up a degree, I'll do another tomw and see what happens. I'm hoping to have it in the
    keg by this weekend to lager and carbonate.This is my "Marathon Madness Lager" that needs to be
    ready to d...

  • Posted in thread: Quick Lager method did I screw up on 09-27-2016 at 05:49 PM
    I'd say take measurements over the next few days and see if the gravity drops some more. Maybe
    stir up the yeast a bit too with a sanitized racking cane. In any case, once you get the
    gravity down a b...

    I pitched my lager a week ago, after putting both the 2 Liter starter and the wort into my 45f
    fridge. I left it at 45 for a day, turned to 46 for another day, then 47, where it sits now for
    5 days. I...

  • Posted in thread: BIAB nub, 5 gallon batch target. on 09-23-2016 at 09:25 AM
    Once I went with BIAB I couldn't figure out why I would want to go with a 3 tier system as long
    as I did 5 gallon batches. Anything larger though gets really heavy and unwieldy to lift.

  • Posted in thread: Is all-grain really THAT much better than extract? on 09-18-2016 at 03:04 PM
    When I switched to all grain even my bad batches were better than some of my good extract
    batches. There are a lot of factors that went with this though. I switched to kegging, I bought
    a large enough...
