    judging from the poster's name, are we sure this isn't a troll post?

  • Posted in thread: 15 minute IPA recipe - worried about bittering on 08-28-2015 at 04:35 PM
    They do if you don't chill immediately. Bitterness is extracted from the hop oils at
    temperatures over (someone will correct me I'm sure) somewhere around 160/170/180F. That
    extraction decreases with ...

    Just tie it off with itself. You lose a little capacity, but you don't have to worry about
    anything. You could also use an all-plastic twist tie (sanitized of course). Not sure if those

    I would go with one pod of beans. To me, vanilla is a flavor in beer that not enough is much

    I'm with h22lude, there's no problem here unless you leave your mash tun dirty following brew

  • Posted in thread: How do you speed up your boil? on 08-21-2015 at 01:31 AM
    I will vouch for the outdoor propane burner. It speeds things up so much. My old apartment had

    hours to do...
