    Beerland TV show on Viceland Network

    It's not for me, too hipster-ish. They never even show any of the brewers setups. They probably use hop extract kits on their stovetop (not that there's anything wrong with that)

    American IPA Stillmatic - Centennial/Columbus IPA

    Looks like a nice beer! Just curious about the name, where you listening to NAS while brewing this beer? ;)

    From Cooler to Keggle Mash Tun ?

    I understand what you are saying about the water/grain ratio. I guess the question then is not whether the ratio changes but mash thickness, not because of the qt/lb ratio but due to the grain density. In his case (and mine) the grain is condensed and does not come in contact with a portion of...

    From Cooler to Keggle Mash Tun ?

    None taken, however I don't completely agree with you. If you want a certain mash thickness you will not achieve it without first filling the deadspace. For example say your grain bill is 15 pounds and you want a mash thickness of 1.25 qt/lb. If you don't compensate for the one gallon below the...

    From Cooler to Keggle Mash Tun ?

    I'll chime in on this since I had the same question when I switched to a keggle mash tun. I also have about a gallon below my false bottom. In my mind, if I want the grain dilution to be 1.4 qt/lb there needs to be an extra gallon added first to compensate for the dead space, otherwise you will...

    Any quick fix to raise fermentation chest temp

    Yup as already stated, a lightbulb does the trick nicely. Just make sure you don't forget to put your control probe back in the freezer like I did. A single 60 watt bulb heated my beer up to 130 degrees before I caught it lol

    HELP: Lake Walk Pale Ale

    I've brewed that recipe a few times. Did the toasted 2 row the first time. The second time I used victory in place of the toasted malt. It was good but I preferred the home toasted malt over the victory.

    Posioned Beer

    Meh, beer already has poison in it anyway. I say drink it lol
  10. B beer got really hot

    It looks like I may have dodged a bullet. Initial taste test was very nice. I'm getting what might be a little astringency from the hops basically cooking but it hides easily behind the high ibu's this recipe has. I'll give another update in a few weeks when it has had a chance to brighten a bit.

    Hmmm. A session double IPA, I might be on to something :-)

    FYI: Recognized Must Brew Recipes - Links

    +1 on lake walk. Best recipe I've brewed from hbt, and I've brewed a bunch of em. I'd add ed wort's haus pale ale to that list as well.
  13. B beer got really hot

    Just a quick update. Pulled the hops from the keg. Beer smelled fine, but didn't taste yet. It's been chilling down at 30 psi for 2 days. Just dropped it down to 12. I'll try to give it another day or so and give it a try.
  14. B beer got really hot

    That's what I was thinking lol
  15. B beer got really hot

    Chilling it down now. I took the hops out, at that temperature I'm sure they gave all they had to give. I may hit it with some fresh hops depending on how it taste

  17. B beer got really hot

    I kegged an imperial IPA a few days ago. I added a dry hop addition to the keg in a nylon bag as I usually do. I wanted to give the beer a few days at 60 degrees to speed up the dry hop process before chilling and carbing, so I put the keg back in my fermentation freezer and set the controller...

    Pump ed up!!!

    Love my chugger pump! I wired a switch to a gfci outlet on my brew stand to take care of the no switch problem.

    Three tier or single tier?

    This is completely dependent on the equipment used. Especially the type of burner and false bottom. I direct fire/recirculate in a keggle with a full false bottom using a sq-14 burner. Never even close to scorching. Honestly I don't really have to use the burner that much to keep the temp...
