    Frozen lager

    I’ve been aging a lager for a few months in a temp controlled fridge with a brewers heating pad and ink bird temp controller. They have also been inside 2 5 gallon big mouth bubblers. Well last weekend I brewed an ale and needed the fermentation fridge so I moved the lagers into another fridge...

    Pennsylvania 4 faucets

    They are just plain faucets. I believe they came in white boxes when I bought them. Not sure what you mean by ball value though. I can take one apart and get pictures of the inside of that helps?

    Kettle Sour

    Thanks. I think I understand how I’m just contemplating using my stainless conical to keep the temp up since my basement is cold and his time of year plus I don’t really have a way to keep the oxygen out as suggesting.

    Kettle Sour

    Going to attempt to make my fist sour this weekend and keep going back and forth how to do it. Was originally going to do a more tradition sour and let it age but have decided to do a kettle sour instead. But now how to exactly do that. My understanding is that I need to keep the wort around...

    Lager Yeast Starter

    Yeah looks a little like a NEIPA. Not usually what happens with my ale yeast starters so maybe I’ll okay. With the others I’ve made I always would be a nice yeast cake at the bottom but don’t seem to have it with this batch. I was planning a 2 stage starter where is cold crash and pour off...

    Setting up conical for brew day

    How long before brew day can I safely attach all my fittings to my stainless conical and sanitize before I brew? I am legging tonight or tomorrow and wanted to clean, sanitize and reattach everything for new brew on Saturday. I have a pressure gauge I can attach instead of blow off to keep...

    Dual Probe Meat Thermometer

    Will these work for brewing? I have the compression probes that you inside your thermometer into and tighten down, not thermowells. On the instructions it mentions not using in water. Is there a reason for this? If not I considered buying thermowells. Should this then work? Hope I’m making...

    Fermenting a lager for the 1st time

    Ok thanks. I am planning on using my spiedel so it’s pretty thick. Wasn’t sure if that would matter. If I had more time I’d order a thermowell

    Fermenting a lager for the 1st time

    Going to lager for the 1st time. I have a fridge I will be using along with a inkbird temp controller and a pad to heat with. My question is my fermentor doesn’t have a thermowell for the temp probe. I would assume the air temp is different than the temp of wort. Any ideas how to handle this?

    Co2 and bottling?

    I have a spike 10 gallon conical that I’m going to purchase a carb stone for. Question is if I put 5g in a keg and bottle 5g will beer stay carbonated in bottles? My other option is to carbonate the keg without the stone and use sugar (or carb drops) in bottle.
