I can't even find someone willing to come over and taste it. I've tried. I don't know of a single other homebrewer in the area.



I swapped the regulator and the manifold.



Yes I have. It...

For $100 I'd drive to NC to pick all that stuff up. Wow.

Are there any ball valves or other fittings on it or does it just have the top cut out?

I would definitely recommend against using 5.2 stabilizer in the mash. From everything I've read on here, the stuff is useless.

How is the hop aroma and flavor in the Bell's clone?

I hope you...

The amarillo red has now picked up the off-flavor after a week or so in the keg. The hop aroma and flavor is gone.

If you are careful about - and good at, it does take practice - racking to the bottling bucket, you will have minimal sediment to worry about.

Any refrigeration unit will work. You might even get lucky and not have to do any wiring at all because wine temp storage temps are not all that far from beer fermentation temps.

You can't say you know what happened without a gravity reading.

My guess is that the lid doesn't seal perfectly and fermentation is or has already happened.

That's definitely much too warm. Look into using a swamp cooler for cheap and effective temp control. It's also not that hard to convert a chest freezer into a fermentation chamber.

I am beginning to think it's CO2-related as well. That seems to be the common factor. I'm going to brew an all-extract batch one night this week too. That will eliminate the entire mashing side of...

They don't have any obvious dirt in them but I don't think I ever replaced those. I've had new CO2 cylinders, a new regulator and a new manifold but not new lines.

Yeah, I think you're right. So I guess I'll just use mash temp for pH readings from now on. I will keep an eye on the calibration for the meter. If it starts to give bad readings I'll upgrade. Thanks...
