    Corny keg as secondary

    mbird, that didn't help at all. My question was about the ball lock/blow off combo. I secondary to clear my beer and give it just a bit of conditioning, I've had beer ferment in the secondary and it was just fine. You didn't answer my question at all, you just attacked my fermenting...

    Corny keg as secondary

    I searched previous threads on using a corny as a secondary and couldn't find an answer to my question. I transferred a beer tonight and I want to use cornys as secondaries. I simply hooked-up the gas in ball lock with a blow off tube into sanitizer. Will this work? Will pressure escape...

    Water to grain ratio

    Okay, follow up question. Looking at blogs and others recipes in various steps throughout the mashing process the water to grain ratio raises. For example: Temp Ratio Time 145F 1.0qt/lb 20min 158F 1.5qt/lb 20min 169F 1.9qt/lb 20min So, at each of these steps am I adding cold water and then...

    Water to grain ratio

    I'm sure this has been discussed elsewhere in the forum and if so please direct me there. But I have a question about what to set my water to grain ratio for mashing at? I know there is science behind it and will affect the amount of fermentable sugars available, but I'm confused on picking a...
