    Co2 leak from keg coupler

    Can hear co2 leaking from back if hex nut, can feel it as well. Question is, does anyone know what size wrench I need to get it apart and what size o-ring(if need be) to stop the leak? I'm away from home and have to go buy a wrench said and o-ring to repair it. Thanks in advance.

    Low OG hefe

    That wasn't my mash schedule, sorry. Mash schedule was in my initial post. I use a RIMS system, temp is controlled by a PID. Seems that conversion was the issue, nowhere near enough time at sacch temp. No iodine, I'll pick some up.

    Low OG hefe

    A friend of mine brought up a point about sacch rest. Since I only spent 10 minutes at 158, I may not have converted enough. All my volumes were as per beersmith and they all came out dead on. I didn't sparge. I used RIMS with a converted keggle, if that info is useful at all.

    Low OG hefe

    Did a hybrid BIAB step mash hefe yesterday. Used 11.5 lbs grain(7lbs wheat/4.5lbs pils) for a 5 gal batch. Steps were: mash in at 95, 111 for 10, 117 for 10, 122 for 10, 145 for 10, 158 for 10 and mash out at 170 for 10. Boil for 90. OG supposed to be 1053 as per beersmith. I wound up at...

    Hop shot

    According to northern brewer, can't make hop tea with the extract. Needs to be boiled with wort. Looks like I'll try hop tea with some pellets.

    Hop shot

    Edit: it's oil based and won't dissolve in water. Anyone have any other ideas?

    Hop shot

    I brewed and kegged a helles that turned out to be under hopped somehow. Anyway, I bought some hop shot from northern brewer to see if I could rescue it. I thought it was a liquid, as opposed to the paste that it is. Anyone have any ideas on implementing this? I was thinking of perhaps...

    Mash in a bucket with a keggle

    Added a keggle, worked flawlessly without any type of insulation. I'm sure that won't be the case in the winter, but, I'm not worried with 2 heat sources.

    Harvested yeast cake cell count

    Forgive me if this question has been asked/answered before, I couldn't find anything in a search. Is there any way to determine the amount of cells in a harvested yeast cake in a ball jar?

    Mash In A Bucket system

    Updated this system by incorporating a keggle for a true one vessel system. I didn't lid the keggle and I modified the heating system. Since the keggle weighs a ton and its used as a boil kettle, I placed it on the burner for the duration. So, what I did is use the burner to get the strike...

    Mash in a bucket with a keggle

    I may get a insulating blanket or something of the sort to wrap around the keggle for the mash portion.

    Mash in a bucket with a keggle

    https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/mash-bucket-system-399490/index2.html I use this system. I have upgraded to a keggle and am wondering what the best way would be to lid this or if I even need a lid. Any input is much appreciated.

    paintball cylinder mystery

    Had my 20oz paintball cylinder filled yesterday. Made another stop for about 45 minutes. Left the cylinder in the car. Was about 80-85 out, I left the windows open. When I got back to my car, I found the cylinder ice cold and covered in ice. I got home and attached a regulator and found it...

    Mash In A Bucket system

    I'm having a slew of issues with the system. Most are because I'm green. Went to brew a kolsch last week. Used 11lbs of grain and referred to BIAB app for water volume. Turns out that 11lbs of grain and 9.125 gallons of water don't fit in a 10gal cooler. Long story short, post boil gravity...
