Sparging, Cold vs Hot?

I've only been batch sparging for two batches now, but I think this is going to be the method for me from now on.

I agree with Yooper as well. My lines are around the 10ft mark and I have my serving pressure set at 12psi @ 40F. The only foaming issues I have is on the first pour because the taps are at room temp.

Is that the same as NB's Dead Ringer? If so, I agree. I'm on my 3rd batch of it. First was a one gallon extract, the last two 5 gallon all grain versions. A great IPA.

Go to Northern Brewer, Adventures, Austin HomeBrew, etc. and order a 24"x24" fine mesh nylon bag. About $6, minus shipping (you could always just throw that in along with an order for ingredients).

That's where I made my mistake. I forgot to do that on this batch.





Thanks. I'll do that from now on. This batch used US-04. That one does take off fast. Got my fingers crossed on this one.

Pretty Decent Brew Day, But Have Some Questions and Concerns

Doesn't sound funny at all. It's kinda like how a clean car drives "better" than when it was dirty. The last few beers I gave out, I got a lot of comments about the caps.
