Looking at the tag, it's likely on clearance and probably only in stores. Usually yellow tag means clearance. Also, this is the time of the year to find a clearance item since they reset their...

If I'm understanding you correctly, you have one burner that I assume you use to heat your strike water and to boil with. If this is the case, all you really need is a table that puts the valve of...

If you want to save some money and do DIY, you might consider making a 30'-50' immersion chiller out of 1/2" copper tubing. There is nothing inherently wrong with an immersion chiller. It's just...

This isn't necessarily true. Refrigerators have an internal thermostat that has a preset minimum temp. Just hooking up a temp controller doesn't override that. The compressor will still turn off...

You're better of taking the money you were going to spend on the 5.2 and buying 10 gals of RO water. You should be able to use a 3% max acid malt addition along with about 1/2 tsp of CaCl. This...

Roughly 24 hours is the recommendation I've seen for cold steeping. I've done it a couple of times when I was just experimenting. It does seem to really cut down on the acrid flavors you get from...

You could do small batch BIAB as opposed to extract. Just depends on wht you prefer. Small batches are probably the way to go. Maybe 2.5 gals as others have suggested. Keep in mind, the batch...

This is actually something you can buy. It's a sparge arm assembly. They sell them at Morebeer, and probably other places as well. I have to agree though, the rigs they are brewing on are nice.

Sorry, meant how fine are the filter pads? Are they 4-5 mic or are they more like 0.5-1 mic?

Edit: Just did a little reading. I guess the pads are rated coarse, medium or sterile. I guess that's...

What size filter are you using on your lagers? I've been making more lagers lately and I've been thinking about filtering for the same reason.

I've used it. It works as advertised. A couple of things to keep in mind. First, the lighter the beer, generally the more you need to use (up to 2 Tbsp). Second, if you are kegging, you will need to...

Personally, I'd put it in the shed. The colder temp isn't going to hurt it. It might take a couple of extra days to ferment out, but the yeast will be perfectly fine at those temps. Although, if...

You've got a few things going on here.

Looks like fermentation temps and proper yeast health might have the biggest potential impact. You probably didn't need the dextrine like you were saying. Heavily hopped beers tend to have pretty...
