    Yes still for sale. Ideally selling it all together so I can avoid several different transactions and getting left with some random pieces of equipment.

    To the top! Just stumbled across all this in my basement again. Make a reasonable offer to take it all out of here and it's yours. Please local pickup only.

(Will separate kegging stuff if someone is interested in all kegging equipment) I no longer have time to brew and everything is taking up space in my basement. Local pickup only. 10 gal tall boy kettle with dip tube, recirc ball valve, temp gauge and...

    Water report questions, looking for feedback

    Thanks for all the info! Should I be concerned with the ph of the mash falling out of ideal range, particularly with darker beers? Edit: I never worried about this while on city water nor did I ever have any issues with dark beers.

    Water report questions, looking for feedback

    I have been brewing for a few years and haven't really paid attention to my water before. I used to have town water and my beer always came out good so I never worried about it. I have recently moved to a new house and have well water. Now I am worried the change in water may change the...

    Can't get boil circuit working... Propane biab build.

    Try bypassing the light and see if it works. Do you have a wiring diagram/schematic?

    Is your green light wired in series with the transformer?

    Commercial bottles with labels that come off easily ~

    +1 for Founders, couldn't have said it better myself! Sierra Nevada labels usually fall off by themselves soaking on oxyclean as well.

    Gravity reading increased at bottling

    ^This priming sugar shouldn't add .008 unless you added a lot of sugar or it wasn't mixed well. I think 5oz of sugar should add 0.003 to a 5 gal batch EDIT: Slightly off topic but relevent 5oz=5/16lb=.3125lb table sugar 46ppg = 1.046 .3125 * 46 ppg = 14.375 ppg assume a 5 gallon batch...

    Entered first contest to get feedback, thoughts? Too Bitter.

    If it is taking a while for your wort to drain through your counterflow chiller then maybe the temps are staying high enough for additional isomerization to occur. From BYO: "Alpha acids will continue to isomerize after flameout until the temperature of the wort reaches about 175 °F (79...

    Entered first contest to get feedback, thoughts? Too Bitter.

    Just a thought, are you using any type of chiller? If not, then any late addition hops would be at higher temps longer which could result in them adding more bitterness that you intended.

    I keep killing keezers: whats up with that?

    Good to know about the R134a as my ferm chamber (mini-fridge) is in an unheated garage. Thanks!

    I keep killing keezers: whats up with that?

    Early 90's is 20+ years old, which i would say is a pretty good run for any fridge/freezer, but I do think you want some type of time delay so the compressor doesn't restart too soon after it shuts off.
