A full Freezer or Fridge will always stay colder longer because the contents act as storage for cold. This is especially true with liquids. Once a liquid gets cold, it will stay cold for quite a...

I think you mean "steep", right? I don't see how you could steep the Biscuit, so I suggest doing a partial mash. Get 3 lbs of DME light or Muttons Light Dry Malt for the base.

Then partial...

I don't think you need to worry. These readings are well within acceptable limits. You should see no significant change in mash profile.

It is possible to get a slight increase in temps if the lid is on because the steam creates some pressure. That could cause a rise of 1-2 degrees on the surface of the mash.

I would suggest parabolic mirrors. There is a site here in the states that has plans where you use a satellite dish (the small kind) and you could melt concrete with that beam.

Here is a link:...

I never secondary ferment. Not many people I know do this any more. I also use a conical fermenter, so what's the point of secondary again?

I also never go by the amount of time in fermentation....

Skunky beer? Do you have the equipment to hold a lager to the desired temp?
If so, no big deal. I advise going with a Bavarian or Czech Pils. They really are crisp and full of flavor.

It appears to me that you are lacking consistency in the way you brewed each beer. This makes it pretty difficult to determine what could be done if things aren't being done exactly the same way...

I don't think you need to worry about it. For one thing, you are probably in the margin of mechanical and human error. There is really no way to accurately measure the temperature of the mash...

I am quite surprised that the tube is 1/16". Would a 3/16" tube connect directly to the tap? If not you could reduce the 3/16" to 1/16 but then you create a lot of pressure on the tubing where it...

A lot of LBS sell brewing salts. Get with them and they can sell you some additional minerals. BTW, it doesn't take much, so the minerals will seem pretty minimal.

Before throwing it out, add about 1/2 to 1 tsp. plain white sugar and recap. Let it sit 2 weeks and see if it produces CO2.

A lot of people use those. You can build a manifold type filter to mash with. Just search the forums. I would install a 1/2" valve on the drain port then you can still use it as a cooler if needed.

You can use regular paintball CO2. It isn't toxic by any means unless you breathe 100% CO2. I get my CO2 from the welding shop and have been for the past 10 years and I ain't dead yet.
