    High Gravity, Clawhammer, Unibrau, Brew Boss automation - Programmable Steps?

    I'm currently looking into the above eBIAB systems for 5 gallon batches. I don't have 240V access but may spring for it. I'm curious if any of these panels allow programmable mash steps. I'm looking for the most automated solution (I'm coming from a Zymatic which was set it and forget.)...

    New Jersey Picobrew Zymatic (original)

    I'm selling a used Picobrew Zymatic. It includes a brand new step filter, 5 gallon corny keg, & all the accessories that came with it. To be honest, this would be a good unit for someone familiar with the zymatic or looking for a backup, or for replacement parts. It works but has its quirks...

    Step-Mash for an IPA?

    Fellow Brewers, My last two IPA's came out really good - great flavor, great aroma, nice color, dry - but the mouthfeel was still too thin for my taste. To try and increase body & head retention I used 15% Flaked Wheat & 10% Flaked Oats in my grain bill. I mashed at 154 F. I just moved...

    Corny Keg as Primary Fermentor - help me rig it

    So I'm thinking of fermenting in a 5 gallon corny, they're almost the same price as better bottles but you get a fermentation chamber and a keg. Also, I like the idea of a closed-system on the cold side because during racking I'm always nervous that something's gonna fall into my beer. I also...

    CO2 tank empty, beer in keg ruined?

    I kegged my beer about a week ago and my CO2 tank seems to be empty even though the regulator shows that it's between FULL and EMPTY. I went to pour a little sample yesterday and there was very little pressure coming out of the tap. Assuming that I ran out of CO2, will my beer go bad if it...

    Sparging with Cold Water?

    I brewed my first batch in about a year so my technique was a little rusty. I forgot to take into account water absorption by the grain. After my 2nd runnings I was off by 4 qts and I didn't have anymore water heated up so I added 4 qts of cold water into the mash tun for 3rd runnings. Is...

    Yeast Starter Storage Problem

    Hey ya'll, I plan on brewing tonight but am concerned about my yeast starter. I made 1L starter on Saturday (Wyeast 1388) - I had it on a stir plate for about 42 hours and then cold crashed it in my fermentation fridge. The only problem is my ferm fridge is a wine chiller so it doesn't get...

    Electric Fermentation Heater vs. Brew Belt

    Just curious if any of you have used the Northern Brewer Electric Fermentation Heater: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/electric-fermentation-heater.html It's about the same price as a brew belt but I like that it wraps most of the carboy as opposed to a very thin surface area of a belt...

    Are Kegs, CO2 tanks, safe around small children?

    Hey Everybody, So I just received my first keg kit, a 3 Gallon corny, 5 lb C02 tank, regulator, hoses, etc. My wife walks in and starts reading the "Warning" label that comes with the CO2 tank and starts freaking out and tells me I can't keep the keg equipment in the house because it's not...

    Leftover Ingredients - What to make with them?

    I do 2.5 Gal All Grain batches and have some leftovers from an IPA that's fermenting now. I don't want to do another IPA or Pale Ale. Any suggestions on what I can do with these leftovers? I can go to my LHBS and get additional grains and adjuncts to add to this. I got a little over-zealous...

    First AG last weekend, I got the brew bug now.

    I did my first All Grain last Sunday and it went pretty smoothly. I made my first yeast starter on Thurs night, made a mash tun out of a cooler on Saturday, brewed on Sunday. Great Weekend! I did a 2.5 Gallon batch on my gas stove (no garage, backyard, etc. for propane). My Mash temp was 4...

    Transfer from Growler to Bottles during conditioning?

    Hey all, Just bottled my 2nd homebrew last night, a Chocolate Stout. I filled up a Growler I had sitting around and literally just stumbled upon all the threads advising not to condition in Growlers because they aren't made to withstand carbonating pressure. I don't want to take my chances...
