I don't really have a stand, but I went to Lowes and found a bracket with holes in it, and put the chiller on a wooden panel (next to my pump) and then drilled four long screws through the bracket...

Wheat malt really helps; I add 4-6 oz to pretty much all my beers.

You seriously asked White Labs about using Wyeast yeast to finish out one of their fermentations? Lol!

Just a guess, but maybe they're all connected to the same distributor.

It would be sweet if you could control the fridge temp online, too.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a smash recipe. I'd leave out the crystal malt, but doubt that the choice of bittering hops would matter that much. Can't you get the anchor ale yeast as well? I think...

I'm not a big fan of avery, either (lord knows, they're popular as hell where I live). I feel that the bittering in their ipa's is way too harsh. I can barely taste anything after drinking just...

I use a refractometer for everything, and it works great in my hands. I've measured the abv of several of my beers by nmr (cuz I can, lol), and have always gotten a value that was very close to the...

53 F is way too cold for bottle conditioning, especially if you're talking a strong scotch ale. Even if you used lager yeast, I think that's too cold. Warm it up! Personally, I'd give all the...

Yeah, 75 should be fine; I usually do it at 72 or so, but the higher temp should only speed things up a bit. What temp did you have the bottles at? Whatever it was, you probably want to put them in...

That's really awesome! I was actually surprised that the couple that had two medals didn't win (the Reuters), but I guess their entries were with each other as the head brewer. Close one, but it's...

I've done it with tart cherry concentrate, also with cola and root beer, fwiw. Just look at the nutritional info, and the sugars listed are going to just be sucrose, fructose, and glucose most...

People usually don't do starters with dry yeast, because it's generally cheaper than liquid yeast, and you get a much higher cell-count (220 billion in a 11 g pack). It lasts much longer when...

If it were my guess, I'd say that you get a little diacetyl after bottling, that quickly goes away as the beer conditions. I've had that happen a few times. If you don't drink the beer early,...

I'd just buy two smack packs (maybe three, if they're old), and call it good. I don't think you'd have a problem with a 1.050 wort.

Wine yeasts supposedly don't touch the harder sugars found in malt extracts, so you'll end up with a sweet mess, I would suppose. It probably won't ferment maltose or maltotriose. I'd brew the...

There's a thread in the yeast forum about 037, with a lot of negative experiences; several different posters claim it can give Belgian characteristics. If I were you, I'd try 1469-West Yorkshire.

Wow, that's a hard one to take. But, you should send some to a competition to get more thorough feedback. Transportation can be hard on a beer, and maybe you had a bit of brett/wild yeast or lacto...

I don't save them (unless it's for a dry-hop in the same beer). Sometimes, I take the spare hops to work and leave them in a cup on my desk. I pitch them when they get nasty.

It's your second batch-try to avoid doing anything weird to screw it up. Just give your wife a wedge of lime at serving.
