    Different flavor from same batch

    I keg from the fermenter, an SB CF10, with good old gravity......not closed pressure transfer, and I rack the rest into a bottling bucket....sanitized of order to evenly distribute the corn sugar/water (boiled) solution. I have always bottled the same way.

    Different flavor from same batch

    Okay, here's the, I want to preface this question with a short background. I have been AG brewing for YEARS......about 20 to be exact. I have an extremely efficient 3 vessel setup, and do 10 gallons at a time. My usual M.O. is to keg 5 gallons and bottle the other 5. So...

    Tilt hydrometer

    Why do different solutions? Your standard "analog" hydrometer should read 1.000 in 68* distilled water. The Tilt should be calibrated in the same fashion. Everyone I have talked to that use one say that their results are within the +/-.002 margin.

    Vote for your Grain mill Gap setting

    What do you do, then, if you have a drill that has only 2 and on? (I have an old corded Black and Decker)

    Is all-grain really THAT much better than extract?

    Short answer.....YES. With that said, BIAB or extract brewing is, IMO, better than your run-of-the-mill commercial beers anyway. With AG, you have a LOT more control and a LOT more options to twist, tweak, and refine your recipes. No matter HOW you brew, though, you're brewing. THAT'S what's...

    Length of beer lines

    It's been a hot minute since I built my setup, and I do believe that I am wrong in my post. I think I DID in fact use 10 ft of 3/16. I am in the process of replacing my lines, and I do believe that I may have ordered 20 ft of the wrong stuff. Soooooooooooo, my bad.

    Length of beer lines

    Actually, I am one of those that uses 1/4 ID line. I use 10 ft per keg, and am only traveling a short distance....say, 2 feet. Perfect pours every time.

    This was a LOOOOONG labor of love. 5 years in the making, but after the last child left the nest, I was able to get it finished. My little hole-in-the-wall. A great place to throw some darts and watch the Preds game.

    Barrel Aging

    A suggestion.....if it's the JD whiskey barrel flavor you're looking for, might I suggest getting some JD smoking chips. Steam them or soak them in some cheap vodka to sanitize them, then rack your beer onto them and secondary for about a week or so.
