    Need some quick advice on a hazy NEIPA

    Brewed a hazy IPA recipe I copied from Nothern, Fruit Bazooka. The only hop additions on brew day were all whirlpool hops, but was an 8ounce add. I was able to keep a good amount out because they formed a cone in the center of my kettle on whirlpool I then dry hopped on day 3 and 5 in my...

    First Look: SS Brewtech Infussion Mash Tun

    Lol, yeah..... Its all good.. I see what your trying to say. So, I guess I will say this: One major advantage, which I stated above, I do not expect this thing to fall apart on me in two years. I believe this is built to last a lifetime. That, right there, is worth the price of admission...

    First Look: SS Brewtech Infussion Mash Tun

    Really late to this party, but my 2 cents.. First and foremost, it's a friggen coooool piece of gear! I've got a 14 gal cooler, about two years old. It's warped, scratched up on the inside, and the inside is delaminating from the outer case. It holds mash temps fine... But, it's gonna...

    Spike Brewing - Sight Glass Performance

    Why are you concerned with a sight glass while boiling anyhow? You'll only get an accurate reading when the wort is chilled. I use Blichman kettles along with the top tier. I sometimes get boiling wort in my sight glass even when I use their CHEESY heat shields. If you want to stop he boil...

    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Bourbon Vanilla Porter (AG)

    Another question: I just kegged my 10 gallons. I had the beer on 4 vanilla beans for 14 days. The vanilla didn't seem very noticeable. Was wondering if anyone has ever thrown beans in the keg also? Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Bourbon Vanilla Porter (AG)

    What's everyone's ratio of adding bourbon? I've seen conflicting amounts, from 1.5oz per gallon all the way up to 750ml per 5 gallon. I'm ready to keg 10 gallons tomorrow, and I'm not sure what I want to do Sent from my iPhone using Home Brew

    Denny Conn's Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter

    Got a question for you all. I am at on my 11th day of primary fermentation in my conical. I did a 10 gal batch, came in right on the money at 1.086, and pitched a huge starter. I had my fermentor controlled right at 65 degrees for the first 7 days, then ramped up to 68 since. I had very...

    Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer Bourbon Vanilla Porter (AG)

    Got a mash question: I am doing this tomorrow, but all of a sudden just realized I may be really tight on mash room. I have a 15 gallon cooler, and looks like I will be at 14 gallon capacity, which could be really, really close to overfilling. I am doing 1.25 qt/lb, and wondering how this...

    I have the "stirstarter", which you can get off ebay. Cant remember the cost, but do remember it was pretty cheap. Works great with this flask. Have not had any issues, and have done at least 15 starters with this flask
