Bottling After Pressurized Fermentation

Hi all, I've recently started fermenting in a Sanke keg with a spunding valve. I love the technique, it's a great little twist to the process. I get bored easily. Anyway, normally I keg, and I've got...

So why does my 50' aluminum IC seem to take so long to cool 10 gallons? The water coming out the end is only hot for a couple of minutes, and then it feels cool while the wort is still fairly hot.

This wacko made a big basket that pretty much lines his brew kettle. What a nut!

You can't find ReaLemon in the grocery store? That seems strange. It might not be with the juices, maybe on the shelf around the baking section or where you might find canned grape and tomato juice. ...

That's good to hear. I like the bill, but I also like dry IPAs (especially with all the fruit from these hops) so I might try this mashed at 149-150. Or a touch more sugar. Thanks for the recipe and...

Looks like the same grain bill as your Fresh Squeezed, with a bit of dextrose to "double" up the style. Same idea with hops as well, just subbed out for Galaxy. How do you like the malt profile? I'm...

Teensy is an Arduino alternative, pretty cool from what I can see, and cheaper. I am, if anything, a cheapskate. :)

So, why couldn't I control boil/mash temps as I would with a traditional PID? My...

I agree with not starting dry yeast but mainly because it's unnecessary with beer. You don't need to boost cell counts with a dry yeast pack (or two). But since this is such a harsh environment I...

I'd make a mini-batch and bitter the crap out of it, then mix them. You could probably do a half-gallon with DME at 1.050 or higher with an ounce or more of super-AA hops for 60 minutes, then blend...

There are so many ways to start SP, and really I think they all boil down to the fact that the yeast are more hardy than we give them credit for. I started an 8-gallon batch yesterday by adding my...

I use my tan pump every brew to recirculate my kettle during hop stand, chilling, and transfer, and I power it directly off a 12V computer PSU I salvaged and converted to a bench-top PSU. Works great.

Doesn't say, but it's magnetic so I'd guess not. I know some grades of stainless will still hold a magnet but it feels like not.

Found this at World Market today. No spigot, but still a great size for continuous brewing I think. Plus, I make beer; I know how to rack from a vessel without a tap.

They also have some slightly...

Unless you're talking to somebody who thinks in Plato - you tell him your yeast bottomed out at "ten" and he'll think you have a stuck ferment. ;)
