Thanks for the info guys. I think my questions are answered. Someday I may try to brew a beer with the Burton water profile, but it sounds like it's a bit extreme. I'll go ahead with RO water and...

Revisiting a two-month-old topic here...

I decided to purchase an RO system that will allow me to do 10 gallon batches with RO water if I so choose (modifying the water first of course). I'll be installing the system next week.

I'm going...

Thanks for all of the great information. I think I need to do a bit of research on RO systems (any recommendations?). I definitely like the idea of starting with a blank slate every time.

Thanks aj. From everything I'm reading, it sounds like RO dilution (either store-bought or with a home system) is going to be the direction I go. But before I go there I've got a couple of...

Thanks for the quick replies!

My mash pH is too high, I don't get good conversion, my beers are often thin and I have run into that "harsh, soapy taste". I've also noticed that I'm not getting...

Thanks for the response. I realized last night that I would have to break the seal to dump the yeast anyway and that I probably overthought the whole thing. I'll look around for the thread you...

Cold Crashing in a Conical

I've been pretty disappointed with the clarity of my last few batches and have decided to cold crash the IPA I brewed to see if that helps. It's a 10 gallon batch in a 14 gallon Blichmann Fermenator....

I'm assuming that the hops that aren't in contact with the beer aren't contributing anything to the aroma, but I've never tested it.

I like the idea of putting a screen on the racking arm. Even...

We get frost in Yakima at least through late April and often into May. It shouldn't hurt the plant if your crowns are big enough (i.e., putting out lots of shoots). Commercial hop growers burn back...

Do not plant rhizomes horizontally. Plant them vertically, with the "eyes" or shoots pointed skyward.

Also, planting them in the ground will be the most successful long-term. Hops can put out a...
