    MoreBeer! Belgian Beer Trip Giveaway!

    Correct - we are no longer accepting entries, and only those entries gathered through the end of April will be valid. I believe that the form may still be somewhere out in cyberspace, so it's possible you can still fill it out, but we will not be using any of those entries that come in after...

    Consecration kit from MoreBeer

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but from what I remember Vinnie uses RP-15 (Rockpile wine yeast). http://morewinemaking.com/products/dry-wine-yeast-rp15-rockpile.html For 5 gallons, I would recommend using 8g of yeast. Make sure to re-hydrate the yeast first to get them as healthy as possible...

    Brew Bucket by SS Brewing Technologies

    Hey All, Great thread on these SS Buckets! Just wanted to make a quick mention that we do have these in stock, and they'll be in both of our warehouses soon enough. They are selling pretty quickly, and I'm not sure when the next shipment is coming in, so wanted to give everyone that is...

    Filter or not filter

    I use a plate filter on certain batches. When I'm bringing beer to a party, entering in a competition or giving away as gifts I'll generally take the time to filter (depending on style). For friends and family, I'm going for the appearance effect and the "this looks like commercial, and tastes...

    Home Security

    I've never thought about installing security for my equipment, but have had a wort chiller ripped off before :mad: It was me being stupid though - brewed in my garage and cleaned things out in my driveway. I ended up forgetting to bring my chiller back inside that night, then noticed the...

    Consecration kit from MoreBeer

    Sometimes (particularly with the extract batches) the bugs won't have enough food after the Belgian yeast and Brett gets to it. As the pH level drops in the beer and the bugs start to become the only living yeast / bacteria left, you may want to consider making a 1-2L "starter" (more like...

    5l mini kegs

    Not quite the same, but we just got these back in stock: http://morebeer.com/products/stainless-steel-minikeg-growler.html They seal tight so you can bottle condition or just fill like a normal growler without it losing carbonation (I recommend counter-pressure filling for best results from a...

    Starsan in wort

    I've never had an issue with StarSan or the bubbles, and tend to use just a little more than the recommended amount. I have a feeling if you dump 32oz into 5 gallons you may get some bad side effects, but haven't ever tested that theory! I'd say just stick to the recommended amount and you'll...

    Morebeer Pliny The Elder Instructions Confusion

    Hey All, Just wanted to quickly clear up the hops schedule on this recipe. For the steeping / mash hops, you'll want to just add those with the steeping grains or mash for that period of time. You don't steep for an hour, that's generally a 30 minute process, so just add those hops to your...

    Critique my IIPA recipe please

    Good call on cutting down the crystal. 1lb should be plenty, and a little Munich is a good idea as well. Have you considered using maltodextrin? That will help with body / head retention as well, and with the 2 lbs of corn sugar, might help to balance things out a little. Just a thought...
