Yep. It helps to clear your beer and is done when fermentation is done. I also do it because I keg, and CO2 is more readily absorbed in colder liquids. Beer is cold. CO2 is cold. I drink sooner.

I know this thread is way past it's prime, but I wanted to pass along that gallons of milk are done by weight and the +- is about 24 grams. So they are pretty accurate. Just an FYI.

FWIW, I have been using the silicone tubing for well over 20 brews and have not replaced any of the lines. The SS hose barbs make a pretty tight fit and you don't have to torque the hose clamps all...

Ditto that day trippr. Isn't the usual method having the HLT the topmost, draining to MLT, then to BK? Unless you are going to gravity drain the MLT into a third vessel and hand pour it into the...

I went with hose barbs and used 1/2" silicone tubing (good from -100 to 500F). When I'm done I just pull all the lines and put them in a bucket filled with PBW, let em soak for a couple minutes,...

I prefer the stubby bottles, but I do use 22's and just about anything I've already de-labled. When I don't keg, that is. Kegging is the only way to go.

Ditto this. I get into comfortable ruts pretty easy and it helps to look at what others are doing. I just got a clone for Racer 5 and I'm going to either brew it, or bastardize it a little, just to...

In reading your initial post, you said you wanted to make your beer that much better. Based on that, I would say make the jump to all-grain, if your budget allows. I bought a pre-converted mash tun...

These look great, but I have one question, are they measured out for the stubby bottles or the taller, skinnier bottles? I have kept both styles of bottles and prefer the stubby ones.

See if this is any better. Might be worth returning the STC and getting this instead.

The worst was carrying my keggle out of the garage (about 8 feet) to put in the IC when it bumped into my calf, while wearing shorts. I had to clean some skin off the side once it had cooled.
