      The grist seems witbier-ish to me. And Witbier is my wife's favorite (well, really only beer she will drink--wine person). I've had...

      TLaffey replied to the thread Above ground planting.
      I have that same dumping going on in my yard. This page shows some pH and nutrients requirements that might be helpful. +1 on a raised...

      TLaffey replied to the thread ICEMASTER MAX 2.
      There are tables online for freezing temperature vs glycol concentration. Here's one: Glycol-Freeze-Point. From that, it looks like your...

      TLaffey replied to the thread ICEMASTER MAX 2.
      I usually run the chiller 10*C below the set temp for the beer. There has to be a decent temperature difference for the heat transfer...

      I haven't dumped it yet--and it has improved over a few weeks. But it just tastes "wrong", so it's likely to go when I need the room. I...

      TLaffey replied to the thread Conical fermenter recommendation.

      TLaffey replied to the thread Identifying cause of bad taste.
      I'd call this the steep climb of the learning curve. Since I also brew hoppy beers (check that avatar), I feel your pain. There may be...

      I never had success with a 1.5" valve, so went to 2" as you are thinking. I posted a photo in #2661 (Spike Conical- observations and...

      I used to own a homebrew shop years ago. Both Wyeast and White Labs ship in styrofoam containers with multple ice packs. Like you get...
