    Now you have me worried about my Oxyclean. I know it's not the 'free' one but I do rinse the
    bejesus out of it with hot water and then starsan. Anyway, about kettles, I am looking at this
    one when I u...

    The first couple times I used my bottling bucket from my starter kit (Brewer's Best), I didn't
    know I needed one o-ring on each side of the bucket for the valve. I am a mechanical engineer,
    and my bio...

    Weezy, I took your advice and cut the crystal to 80 SRM and upped that to a pound and upped one
    chocolate and eliminated the other. What does everyone think? I'm also thinking of going 1968
    yeast, but...

    That's like saying that if you don't continuous sparge, you're not doing AG.From what I've read
    BIAB has been evolving from it origins in Australia.BIAB = Mashing in a bag to get some or all
    of your f...

    BIAB doesn't necessarily mean no sparge. I've been doing PM BIAB for a year and I sparge with
    about 2-3 gallons @ 170F to rinse the grain and it works great. I do ~1/2 gallon rinse through
    the bag, le...

    What about a pound of Crystal 80? And which chocolate should I drop. I'd think I'd go with the
    pale chocolate for a smoother flavor.

    So if you live in the Dayton/Cincinnati area, you may know that a lot of breweries have started
    popping up in the last few years. Mad Tree, Eudora, Toxic, Warped Wing, Rivertown, and about 5
    others in...

  • Posted in thread: Carboy Caps are NOT Air Tight... What? on 12-09-2014 at 03:23 AM
    I can't really answer your question except to say that a nice O-ring at the seat of those
    threads in the lid might do 90% of what you want you to do. My other comment is off topic :off:
    Where'd you ge...

    This sounds interesting. I'd like to hear how it turns out. What kind of hops are the Mandarina
    Bavaria? I'm not familiar with those
