Thanks for that input, Guys - I think I'll be sorry if I try to make it work. It's just that copper is so #*##* expensive. Guess I need to find some plumber who will trade me even up!

A dozen years or more ago I bought a coil of 1/2" copper to build my immersion chiller. I must have bought 50' coil because I still have over 25' of it sitting on the shelf. Now I want to build a...

Would this work for a fermentation chamber?

I live in Michigan and ferment in my basement (well, my beer does, anyway :). Ambient temp is never too low but in summer is sometimes too high. I have used the ice-bath approach but want something...

grinding whole-leaf hops prior to use

Do any of you hops home-growers do this? I saw it on some YouTube video - the guy used a coffee grinder to grind up his hops prior to putting in a strainer bag for use in dry-hopping. Seems like a...

first year crop seems grassy - typical?

My first-year Cascade hops don't have that wonderful hoppy aroma I was dreaming of. I don't think I picked them too early - in fact I picked them at intervals over the course of about a month to...

yeast layer won't fall?

After two weeks I still have a layer of yeast on top in the fermenter. At least I hope that is what it is. I wouldn't say it is foam - It is light brown and shiny with little air bubbles. It seems...
