Vinegar

So I've finally done it. A clean record of 5 years out the window.....I've made an infected batch of beer. Almost certain it is due to an infected yeast culture.

So......I hate to throw away...

You're right. They're not stainless. Magnet sticks easily.

They are in great shape, though. At this point, I'm thinking one could be used to mash (simple infusion, no heat of course) or to...

You're right. The barrels are painted on the outside and coated on the inside. Couldn't this be removed? Sand blasting maybe?

Old Barrels for Large Volume System

My friends and I recently acquired 3 55 gallon food-grade barrels. They were originally used to store juice concentrate. (I'm assuming steel or stainless?) They are in good shape. Our intention...

What he's saying is: The yeast is not all powdery and soft looking as it settles out. It's settled out as gravel-sized clumps. To pitch or not to pitch, that is the question.

Bottling a Barley Wine, send in the reinforcements?

I'm bottling a barley wine this weekend. It's been in secondary for 3 1/2 months. Do you think I should add some fresh yeast before I bottle?

Any Raleigh, NC Area Brewers with Pacman Yeast?

I'm sick of paying for yeast every time I brew. I'm going to start culturing my own. I really enjoyed the Pacman yeast that Wyeast put out, but, alas, it is no more. Anyone have a culture? I'd...

For the record, I checked a cardboard box with six, well-wrapped liters. Foam peanuts also. No problems. (The box was opened and inspected, as there was fresh tape on it when I got it back.)

Why don't you just get an adapter for your sink so you can hook a hose up to it? You might already have one if you use a bottle washer. Run the hose to your garage. Run the waste hose back to a...

Exactly! I just kept thinking of those pictures of the old Bass system you see in all the books. The wooden barrels with the blow-off tubes.

A big beer, an explosive morning, and an idea

I brewed an all-grain barley wine this weekend. Big beer. 23 lbs for 5 gallons. Put it in a 6.5 gallon carboy with an airlock and stuck it in my closet. A smarter man would have put a blow-off...

Don't just make one batch from one yeast cake. I have several sourdough starters cultured from beer yeast I was "finished" with. Some better than others.

Check out books by Ed Wood.

Just transferred after a week in primary. Bottle next weekend? I usually go two weeks in secondary, but that is with strong ales. This is my first wheat.
