Ha, yeah, it's a dovetail router jig. I had put it there for convenience. Right now there's lots of stuff on top of it. Makes a good table, I guess :)

Short story long, I never finished my fermenting chamber, and am now moving...

For me, the propane burner out in my garage makes it easier to clean up boil overs (hose + push broom, though those are fairly rare these days with fermencap), easier to work around since the pot...

I think I'd try with a different beer before I started blaming the fridge.

I've only used the dry yeast and White Labs up to this point (I don't think my LHBS even carries Wyeast) and I've found that without a starter, the White Labs liquid yeast has a pretty significant...

There are ways the glass can not withstand the weight of the water within. For instance, using those neck handles with a full carboy can break the neck.

I try to relieve some of the weight on the...

Auto-siphons are freakin' amazing devices. Pump twice and the siphon is done.

The trick to any siphon is positioning more than anything else. The top of the bottling bucket needs to be below the...

It is very unnerving the first time or two. But starsan is great stuff that breaks down into yeast food.

Plastic as in Better Bottle? They're lighter and they don't break... I have two glass carboys, and that'll be it for me for glass.

Probably aeration. Tell him to shake the hell out of it.

Check the gravity too. Sometimes you just miss the fermentation.

I'm sure we'll all say "Go for it!" or "Screw what your wife says, do what you want!" (said mostly by those that are unmarried, I assume ;) ).

This option you've described is really a question for...

At 150F, I'd say the yeast are dead. If you want to use it, pour off the liquid and put the new yeast into the liquid (instead of pouring off the liquid and trying to use the dead yeast below it)....

The part I was thinking was that a part of a quart wasn't going to be enough to get the mash up to the right temperature. By mashing in the brew pot, you won't have to worry about it because you can...

The point of getting it up to the 165 area after the one hour rest is to stop enzymatic activity. I think mashing in your brew pot might be the best course of action so you can do that without...

Does it mean I'm getting old if the first thing that came to my mind was "seems like it'd be more trouble than it's worth to have two?"

Ahhh, I see. Hmm, you may need to reduce the number of grains in your recipe. Or do the brew in a bag method and do it all in your brew pot.

Yeah, that doesn't sound like a lot at all. What is your total volume set to? It's only giving you ~3.5 gallons to pass through the tun. Your finishing volume should be 5 or 5.5.
