    All Grain Newbee needs help! MLT - how are they assembled?

    Here is the kit I am asking about - basically two rubbermaid coolers and all the connections, valves, false bottom, and sparge arm. Just no instructions! And for $245 - about $150 more than I should have paid for the individual parts (so I would get instructions). "Burned once, shame on you -...

    All Grain Newbee needs help! MLT - how are they assembled?

    Been making good beer for 3-4 years now (not counting the horse-p*ss I made in college 45 yrs ago!), and am moving up to all grain. I have all the equipment, but the orange mash tun and sparge tank don't come with any instructions for the included valves. Oddly the sparge sprinkler is well...

    fermenter question

    Now that is an excellent idea! I finally racked from the fermenter to a carboy to actually see what was going on and why I was losing so much beer. If you leave the stuff on the bottom for several days without draining it off, IT STICKS TO THE SIDES! and therefor won't drain out at all. The...

    fermenter question

    Am finishing up a brew in a new fermenter, a 6-1/2 gallon thick plastic fermenter with two ball valves, one at the bottom of the cone and one just to the top of the cone for bottling, I guess. I started with 5-1/2 gallons of brew, but by trying to drain off the lees I have ended up with only...

    Draining off lees with new fermenter

    Removing the junk (trub?) at the bottom is no harder than turning a valve stem and catching the junk on the way out. No racking from carboy to carboy, no sterile washing, etc. I think I'll pull off the crap every couple of days and see if there is any difference when I brew next and leave on...

    Draining off lees with new fermenter

    I think you are right. I live near the Red Hook Brewery in Woodinville, WA - that's a good question to ask at my next visit. I think I should do as the big guys do it, only in miniature. Funny that the instructions that came with the fermenter were so specific about that point. Maybe to...

    Draining off lees with new fermenter

    I need some advice here, please. I just purchased a fancy fermenter that holds 6-1/2 gallons and has two spigots, one for draining the lees (or junk from the bottom - it is cone shaped at the bottom), and one for bottling. The instructions say to drain off the lees every day, but I really...

    Kitchen Aid Grain Mill

    No, it's per week. I know, it sounds nuts, but when you have over indulged as a young person (30 years ago) it makes sense to be cautious. I'm just glad to be able to enjoy some at all. I spent 30 years without ANYTHING, so I'm sort of re-learning the basics. Believe it or not, I could...

    Kitchen Aid Grain Mill

    I have a little hand mill, but haven't used it to crack the brewing grains. The brew store where I get my stuff just mixes and grinds the grains in a minute or two, no charge. Guess I don't see the need with such good service at the local homebrew store. Nice guys, too, with lots of advice...
