    Accounting for lauter dead space

    Ok. I didnt know that changed the volumes for the recipe as well. I thought it was a bit much to when I did it. Am I right to assume maybe it was because it was just water and having the grain in there taking up space would make it quite a bit different? I will try it again when I get home to...

    Accounting for lauter dead space

    So I am ordering the ingredients to do my first brew moving to All-Grain. I picked up Beersmith and have been poking around in it. I plan on doing this recipe Fizzy Yellow. Now when I am inputing the recipe into Beersmith and setting the equipment profile I come to lauter dead space. I...

    Another Name for Skeeter Pee

    My friends call it "That Evil Stuff". Although after them trying my first run of Dragons Blood the other weekend that name might be getting switched.

    6 Tap Keezer Build

    The fan I basically just followed the same directions as making a DIY stir plate but used much longer wire. http://brewprof.com/weekend-homebrew-diy-project-stir-plate/

    6 Tap Keezer Build

    Finished the project a bit ago so I thought I would update the thread. Installing the first manifold: There was a large tempertaure difference from the top and bottom so I made a quick tunnel with leftover foam and a computer fan. Working like a charm. Temp controller and fan...

    6 Tap Keezer Build

    So luckily SWMBO is a big beer and wine drinker so she is very supportive in me getting more and more into the hobby. We decided we wanted to build a keezer so we can get more on tap and do more brewing. We went to Lowes and got a good sized 14.9 cf freezer. We can fit 8 kegs very comfortably...

    Skeeter Pee

    We gave it a taste tonight and SWMBO said it probably was the best tasting pre-sweetened batch we have made. Looks like I got worried for nothing. Sweetened it up will keg next weekend. Might need to let it sit more than usual if the wife really likes this bath.

    Skeeter Pee

    Anyone know how long SP can sit in the fermenter and still be good? Long story short is I make it up for my wife and her friends. I made a batch back in December but unfortunately my wife had a medical issue which prevented her from having alcohol then as well. Now she can and is asking for some...

    OG quite lower than recipe states

    I brewed up a Nut Brown Extract kit last night. It was the first time I've been able to do a full boil with my new brew-pot and a darkstar burner. In all my previous brews Ive always been right near the OG stated in the directions. Not always on but right near. I took a reading of last nights...

    Better to buy supplies online or in person?

    I try my best to shop local if possible but not always possible. We got a new LHBS just down the road but right now its mostly just beginer kits. The closest store with a big selection is atleast an hr away. Online is usually better prices and I dont bave extra hobby money as I used to so...

    Couple Questions on Cherry Beer

    Just recently bought an American Wheat kit from our LHBS. Havnt gotten around to making it yet though. The other day the wife had a great cherry wheat when we were out to dinner. She mentioned we should try turning that kit into a cherry wheat. I agreed as well she is SWMBO. It did bring up a...

    Multi week stuck fermentation

    I started a Hard Lemonade from a recipe on this site a couple weeks ago. The fermentation went for a week. Gravity was 1.110 at start and it got to 1.099. I then had to unexpectedly head out of state for the past 20 days or so. I checked the gravity today and its still 1.099. Is it worth trying...

    Losing gas

    I am still new to brewing and kegging so if this is a dumb question I am sorry. I have had one keg for a while but yesterday I decided to expand to two as I had two drinks I wanted to bring with me camping this weekend. I get the keg cleaned and fill it with my drink. I plug the gas in and...

    Skeeter Pee

    Just finished kegging our first run of this about 20 minutes ago. Made two 5 gallon batches. One for a camping trip and another still waiting in the carboy since I have a feeling this wont last the weekend. Had about a half gallon more than the keg could handle so I popped the rest into a...

    The reason why SWMBO hates homebrewing thread!

    As long as I fix something around the house if it breaks, keep the yard cut, and give her her fair amount of attention she doesnt care what I do with my hobbies. Be it homebrew, a long video game session, or just being lazy. Same goes for me with her hobbies I dont habe interest in.
