    Concentrated Grape (muscat) juice

    Fairly simple question - I have a can of concentrated muscat grape juice that could be about 4 years old. I never got around to using it for the original plan. It's been stored cold the entire time (except 1 month when I was moving between states.) Would you think the juice is ok to use in a...

    Ever see this after pitching your starter??

    I made a fresh 1.5L starter on Monday (Sept 15). On Tuesday I crashed it. Brewed today, Wednesday. I usually try to decant as much liquid as possible from my starter wort before pitching onto my fresh wort I brew. Today I couldn't pout off more than a third (~500mL) of my 1.5L starter before...

    two stage propagation

    Well I've since found a source of more yeast but continued w the two stage starter. It seems like I have generated some activity. There appears to be signs of kraussen, tiny bubbles on the top of the starter. I am using a stir plate so it is hard to tell if there is activity and how much. I'll...

    short and long term beer storage

    Thanks! So for the kegs that are all ready carbonated, the pressure all ready in the keg is enough to hold it assuming no leaks?

    short and long term beer storage

    Greetings, Ive done a search and came up with varying results and wanted to get some fresh opinions. Can I remove a partially filled and properly carbonated keg from tap service and hit it with about 30psi and store it for a few weeks while I travel? Can the same be done for a new beer...

    Waiting for wort to cool

    Thanks for the all the great suggestions. I will probably try out a few of them in my next session. To clear some things up, my chest freezer is dedicated as a fermentation chamber, was bought new, and is very clean so I'm not too woried about nasties. I also thought about "suck-back"...

    Waiting for wort to cool

    Folks, With the warm weather, house water, and using both a pre-and plate-chiller, I cannot get my wort south of 82F. Is there any harm in airlocking it and putting it in the chest freeze/ferment chamber and waiting for it to get to 65-70 before aerating and pitching yeast? Thanks for...

    Drill Bit of Chassis Punch for 1/4" NPT

    Greetings, I am modifying my keg mash tun and adding a custom made thermowell that will accept a digital temperature probe. I am using a 1/4" tube compression to 1/4" NPT, where the NPT will pass through the keg wall. The 1/4" NPT outside diameter measures 0.518" on my caliper but an online...
