    Spice quantities

    I have read through quite a few posts and I find lots of talk about coriander, orange peel and ginger but quantities seem to vary a little. So if I could I would like to get thoughts on how much too add. I am making 1 1/2 gallon batches while I upgrade my equipment, going partial electric...

    Awesome. It's nice to have some closure here :ban: Too many threads die with no follow up. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

    Fermentation Chamber Validation

    I thought about that as well since it seems the most common but with my tendency to second guess myself far too often, I would go crazy figuring out which one to tape it too :drunk:

    Fermentation Chamber Validation

    Quick question on ferment chamber temp control. I have thumbed through some search results on temp fluctuation and have started to question my setup. I have the typical STC-1000 in a chest freezer with a small space heater which seems to hold temps within a degree or so +/- so no complaints...

    Is it safe to put the STC-1000 probe into a mash?

    I used my vacuum sealer to make a sleeve for mine. I don't use it to monitor mash temps but I have it in a gallon jug of water in my ferment chamber so I don't have to attach it my buckets and try to insulate.

    Not many of them will be close to where you will be staying but check out this article. http://www.435mag.com/February-2014/Kansas-Citys-Craft-Beer-Industry-is-Booming/ And of course, if you have time, take the Boulevard Brewery Tour, it's a good time and only about a 10-15 minute walk...

    Curious Result

    Yes, extract kit with steeping grains, it came with the DME already divided and the LHBS divided the grains for so that should have been ok. I did do a full boil.

    Hadn't considered the temp, thanks.

    Curious Result

    In Jan of last year I bought and extract kit for an Irish Red, I only brewed half of it with intent to finish it up in a couple weeks. At the time I did not realize that I would be buying a house and moving, forcing the second half to wait till now. The hops and yeast have lived in the fridge...

    Chill haze or "chill haze"?

    I get what you are saying and certainly understand, however, not sure I fully agree. I am 50 years old and truth be told have probably poured more than my fair share of beers. I don't get this issue with any commercial beers, even after a car ride home to shake up the yeast.

    Chill haze or "chill haze"?

    I thought I understood chill haze but after reading this I guess I don't. My beers typically do clear in the fridge after a few days, they are nice and clear in the bottle. But I get a haze when I pour them in a glass, that's what I thought a chill haze was. I am guessing this is incorrect?

    Electric HLT control

    I am taking a long slow and hopefully cheap road to set for all electric and currently piecing together my HLT. Is there any reason I should NOT use an STC1000 controller on my heating element? I would think I could set the temp and let it go.
