I thought that the Perlick 425's were great (still have a couple on my jockey box). They had the same basic design as the Vent-Matics which I think was the reason they were discontinued - there was a...

I can understand the allure of stainless steel, but it really makes a lousy heat exchanger. I suppose as long as your chill water is cold enough it will get your wort down to temp, but it's going to...

While making my starter this evening in my 3 liter glass flask, I let my mind wander a bit and wondered if there was such a thing as a stainless steel Erlenmeyer flask. It would be basically...

If they have been vacuum sealed, I'll bet they are fine.

I actually do an all Centennial IPA with no hop additions until the 30 minute mark. In some circles, this is called "hop bursting". I just...

I would love to see a good Old Ale on tap. I know that's a tall order, but I can still wish. I'd settle for Bell's Third Coast (did I say "settle"?).

A full boil gives you the advantage of higher hop utilization due to the lower overall gravity of the wort. Also, with the lower gravity, you will get less darkening of the wort during the boil - a...

Pellets are a lot easier to deal with in a carboy and is my standard method. A couple of ounces of whole hops is a lot of volume to shove down that little hole. If you put them in a bag, I don't see...
