I'll be brewing this weekend so I'll keep you guys updated. Thanks for all the advice and suggestions. It'd be great to have a weight on top of the FB to keep it stationary.

There is no dip tube that I'm aware of. The false bottom is free to move around. Also, one side looks slightly flared. The grain bill was 12lb 2row, 1lb crystal 40, 1lb carapils milled at home.

No wheat. I'll be giving it another go in a few days. I'll have to grab some rice hulls and see if that helps out.

When I went to run off I got about an ounce of wort with a little grain and nothing I did could get it unclogged. I might need to find a way to keep the false bottom from moving around. Perhaps I...

False Bottom Issues

Hey folks.
I just put together a new tun and am currently in the process of christening it. I went to run off the mash and the grain must've gotten underneath the false bottom when I stirred it in....

All good advice. Dry hopped in a muslin bag. The new poppet in this keg is made for the keg model. I've got another out hose set up so once I kick the keg (which will be soon because it's goddamn...

Out valve spraying.

Soo, just a few days ago I finished fermenting a hoppy red ale. Tonight I came home and really wanted to try it. As of now I only have 1 beer out line, but 2 kegs. I pulled the out line from my...

Coffee

Alright I've got a porter that is ready to keg and I am going to add some coffee. I bought a bag of an expresso roast coffee that I am cold brewing (~24ozs of water and 7ozs of coffee for 24 hours)....

Yea. I had an ounce of hops thrown in at the beginning of the boil. I can't remember what I used off the top of my head. The beer has come around though after following some advice given here.

11lb 2 row
1lb Munich malt
1lb crystal 40
.5lb flaked barely

Hoppy Red Ale (India Red Ale?)

Ok. I've been digging on a few hoppy red ales of late (specifically Cascazilla and Hop Head Red). I put together what I'm hoping will be a delicious recipe, but I'm not so where I should start with...

As to how it tasted...it wasn't medicine like or necessarily foul tasting, though warm, uncarbonated, unconditioned "green" beer doesn't taste that hot to begin with. I'm just gonna let them...

It was in a coopers bucket. I took the lid off once to remove the krausen sleeve from the fermenter. This was about 6 days after fermentation began. I haven't tasted the brew yet. The raisins were...

Possible infection?

I brewed a knockoff of Dogfish Heads "Raison D'Ítre" and just bottled it yesterday. The home brew smelled fine, but there was a hazy "film" covering roughly 85% of the surface. I've heard that...

No I didn't boil the grains haha. That'd make for a pretty awful brew, I'm guessing. I should have worded that differently. I guess we shall see how it comes out come kegging time. Speaking of which,...

Coopers Tweak

Howdy folks. I was sent a complimentary coopers lager kit and figured that since it was free I'd do a little experimenting. The coopers kit comes with a "brew enhancer" which is dextrose and...
