I apologize to those who sent PM's which went unanswered. Health issues - including 3 months in bed followed by re-hab. Anyway, I still have these 3 conical SS containers for sale. They are all...

OK. I thought that the beauty of this stuff was that it's ready to drink in a matter of weeks - kinda like beer. Still have most of mine left so I'll see how it ages. I did use hops per the original...

OK, and Thanks.

I reckon it'll still be drinkable so I'll probably cut it off and bottle next Friday. Onward and upward. :cross:

Well, I'm about a week into the "lager" (secondary) and it's kinda hard to hold the temp down. I can manage 45* OK, but it's tough trying to drop to 40*. I have the partial use of two freezers, and...

I'm a bit leery of trusting those times as shown on that graph. It looks like it is based on a heated liquid - not dry heat. You may need to add a "fudge factor" for dishwasher (or oven) sanitizing....

If the steam is melting many collars, you'd think someone would start selling BIG (maybe 12" diameter) SS "baskets" - kinda like a round fry basket - but with much tighter mesh. Use the same basic...

The element is centered about 2.5 inches up the side and is flat, i. e. the wave is most obvious from above. I haven't been using a spoon because I've been afraid of "beating up" the element....

Whirlpooling separate from the BK????

I have a doubled and wavy 5500 watt horizontal element in the 15 gallon BK, and whirlpooling just isn't working out. A 4 inch "Tea Ball" doesn't hold in the disintegrated pellets, and they're...

Best Value in a Refractometer?

I've decided to break down and buy one of these gadgets. Does money equate with quality here? I see that you can spend up to $300 or more - but I don't need the finest available. MoreBeer is running...

AHS Noble Pils

I bought one of these AG kits a couple of weeks ago, then bought extra hops to make my first 10 gallon batch this week. Anyone else made it yet? The SA Noble Pils is my favorite beer (after SNPA) and...

Found a 12 pack this week - of which I've saved two for comparison to the AHS NP clone. I'm sure it's the only SA that I really like, and I may have figured out why. Every other SA has a foul...

Yep -the BK's electric. That silver thing under it is a plate chiller - it looks weird because of the 45's and camlocks.

New Herms

I finally got this to be functional and it's made two 5 gallon batches so far. Still has an annoying leak in the HLT, but the water is staying off the 4500 watt element, so it heats OK. That black...

Haven't tried it on tap, but just finished a 6 of bottles. Far from my favorite commercial brew - way too bland for my tastes. I really like SNPA and SANP much better (much bitter?). Anyway, I need...

The B3 Oxygenation Wand did a fine job on my first brew in 2 months, but I'm already thinking of using it as an adjunct to my "whirlpooling aeration". My theory is that since boiling removes the...

C'mon now - no one's saying that Oxygenation improves the entire brewing system - just that it easily puts the highest level of O2 in the wort before pitching. :D
