Posted in thread: Beer in my CO2 tank on 03-31-2013 at 02:26 PM
I've been to a shop that cleans and re-stamps cylinders with the DOT stamp for pressurized
gasses, and they were definitely cleaning the cylinders with pretty hot water. Maybe it wasn't
boiling, but i...

It seems like you could test this in a straightforward manner by having a bladder inside a keg.
If the beer was carbed to a normal level, and then placed in the bladder, you could pressurize
Posted in thread: Advice on packing wine in suitcase... on 03-02-2013 at 12:03 AM
I've put each bottle in a couple of socks (or one thick wool sock if you're going someplace
cold), and then put 'em in gallon ziplocks (separately). I've only had four or five in a
suitcase at a time,...
Posted in thread: Centennial Blonde (Simple 4% All Grain, 5 & 10 Gall) on 02-14-2013 at 12:01 PM
I made my first batch of Centennial Blonde a few weeks ago, and it is awesome! Such an easy
brew. I let it sit in primary for three weeks and then it went straight into a serving keg. I
Posted in thread: currant mead OG 1.360 ?? too high to pitch yeast? on 02-12-2013 at 12:34 AM
I bet you'll be fine. 3.5# of honey in 1 gallon finishes pretty sweet anyway, so you might have
yourself the makings of a pretty good mead there!
Posted in thread: currant mead OG 1.360 ?? too high to pitch yeast? on 02-11-2013 at 02:20 AM
That sounds like a JAOM recipe. Are you sure you measured the gravity correctly? Many people
get an OG around 1.130 (myself included). A normal hydrometer doesn't measure that high either,
at least th...

Posted in thread: 3 Temp Fermentation Controller 1 chamber on 02-09-2013 at 04:13 AM
OK, I get the three controllers, but how does that control temps in one chamber?Agreed. That is
a kick-@ss temp controller setup, but what is this magical single chamber you refer to?

I keg, and plan to use potassium sorbate to knock the yeast down a peg. Back-sweetening and
bottling sounds way to labor intensive (filter, bottle and then pasteurize? Ouch).
Posted in thread: Fermentation Chamber Heater Too Powerful? on 02-08-2013 at 10:55 PM
Just an update: I built the paint-can heater, and have added some thermal mass (more beer!),
and everything seems to be working much better now. I'm also measuring the fluid temp of a
carboy instead o...
