    Cold Crashing & CO2

    Greetings, Typically I’ll dry hop in the keg or some kind of secondary fermenter. For scheduling reasons, I tossed the pellets into the primary and planned on just cold crashing to drop them out. To do so, I typically fill a balloon with some CO2 and attach to my standard blow-off tubing. It...

    All, I'm planning my next brewday and I've got some WY2124 that I've already starting building (it's old), and I'd like to brew a German pilsner. I've not brewed many pilsners (lagers in general), so I'm seeking some advice regarding water profiles. My local water 'looks' like this: 22 Ca...

    Copper chiller clean?

    I’ve brewed a few batches of beer with this coil chiller, and lately noticed these marks on it. I typically soak it in OneStep in the kettle after brewing. Anyone know what this is? Anything to worry about? Should I dump what I’ve already brewed?

    Brown Ale recipe advice

    I've recently picked up some Goldswaen Brown Malt on the cheap and I'd like to use it. I've brewed some Brown Ale's in the past, but never with this malt. I tossed this recipe together and was going to give it a whirl next weekend, but thought I'd see if anyone else has advice prior to...
