Alright. Cool. I am not alone in this then!
Thanks for the input.
I seem to always overshoot the strike water temp, so I will keep a pot of cool water on hand at the ready from now on.

A question about mashing

I brewed up my first lager earlier this summer and it is now, finally, ready for drinking.
I was a bit disappointed to find that is a bit sweeter than I would like, or would expect, for a lager. ...

That is a great idea!
I have a platform I threw together out of some scrap wood and I am not all that happy with it.
It works, but takes up way too much room for storage.
Can you show me the...

Thanks for the info.
I think I have a bum Corny for doing pressurized ferments in.
It doesn't seem to seal properly.
That one may be sold back to my LHBS.

I would think not.
It probably wouldn't hurt to lay a blanket of CO2 on top of the wort, but if your yeast get to work in a hurry, I wouldn't think it would be all that necessary.

Thanks for the input, folks.
I was hoping that you could just squeeze a bit of gas at a time from the charger and this seems to be the case.

CO2 Charger for Racking?

I have a week to go until my first lager is ready to be racked to the secondary, so I have some time to play around with figuring out how this racking is going to take place.

The lager is sitting...

Do any of you have a part or parts number for a spunding valve and the etc to connect to a corny? Brewing season is about to commence for me and I am still hot to try this technique out.

This.

I fully understand that this could be a hot topic. I am just looking to keep it as simple as possible. Should the nipple be copper or brass? Plumbing is not my favorite field of study. :p
