Mine drains into either my lawn or bushes to water them. Also, once my wort gets below 140 or so I start to turn down the flow. If the water coming out of your chiller is colder than your wort, you...

I tend to get impatient and try one beer from each of my brews after only one week. They've always been drinkable, and it also always blows me away how much better they are after another week. I...

I think we had all misunderstood each other from the start.

If you're doing small batches, and fermenting different stuff in each small carboy, then there are no issues at all. There is a big...

Well to know if it's done, you need to check the gravity. If it's stable for three days, it's probably done.

As others have said, with that much simple sugar and at that high a temp, chances are...

Kombat is probably right on this, but if you really want to do it, I'd say measure out your water and split it into equal amounts... trying to siphon equal amounts will be a disaster. You should just...

My gravity is way off (full boil though)

So my latest brew is 17 points too high! It's an extract brew, but I did a full boil (started with 6.5, ended with 5.25ish in my carboy, no top off water at all).

I had my recipe in Beersmith,...
