  • Posted in thread: Moving from tap water to RO water on 11-04-2014 at 01:46 AM
    I've been using tap water and adjusting it using a water spreadsheet. I have been getting a
    dry/bitter almost astringent taste in most of my beers since and I'm finally noticing a
    pattern. A friend sa...

    I've been trying to have my dad over for a brew day forever and tild him we would brew

  • Posted in thread: Stir plate enclosure on 01-24-2014 at 02:22 AM
    I'm going to be building a stir plate soon, I was wondering if anyone has found an enclosure
    like the one the vortex from Northern Brewer is encased in. I would like a round enclosure,
    just based on a...

  • Posted in thread: Heat rock for fermentation chamber on 11-07-2013 at 06:47 AM
    Would a reptile heat rock work as a heat source for a 5 cubic foot fermentation chamber? I am
    using a fan right now and it heats up the chamber too much so that the freezer kicks on, it has
    a thermost...

    yes, I think I have it figured out. I'm going to build a Wallace type stand and attach a
    blichmann floor burner to it high enough so the valve of my boil kettle (which I will also use
    to heat my strik...

  • Posted in thread: Brew stand for rectangular cooler MLT on 11-06-2013 at 03:29 AM
    I've looked though about every brew stand thread known to man and I can't find a standard for a
    one burner rectangular cooler MLT set up. Most of the rigs I see are for HERMS or RIMS
    systems.... anyon...

    I just recently had DFH raison d'etre for the first time and it's getting close to time to brew
    my annual Bock. Anyone ever had raisins in a Bock before, if so what was your impression?

    mark that looks awesome, would love to have that brew rig, trying to do it on the cheap though.
    I have an aluminum speed rack from an old hospital that I may try and cut apart and reassemble

  • Posted in thread: Blichmann Floor burner stand on 10-22-2013 at 05:59 PM
    I have searched a little bit and haven't found anyone out there that has built their own stand
    for the blichmann floor burner. I need the top of the burner to be about 36" off the ground
    (for a gravit...

  • Posted in thread: Founder's Breakfast Stout Clone on 10-10-2013 at 01:10 AM
    two weeks after bottling I tasted this next to a founder's breakfast stout. I don't think mine
    was as hoppy or as coffee forward, chocolate still came through. Aroma was close, so was body.
    I wasn't t...
