    Probe doesn't fit...

    ehedge20, did you replace the probe? Or you used that as your thermowell? kgalle, here's some photo's: You can see that the probe has a crimped edge, this is what is catching on the thermowell tube.

    Probe doesn't fit...

    Got a new Johnson Digital Temp Controller today and a bung with a dip tube for the probe. Excited to try and actually control fermentation temps now, but... The probe doesn't fit into the tube. The crimps where the metal cap is attached to the wire are just slightly too fat. Anyone have...

    Turkey Fryer BTU's for 5-Gallon Batches?

    Looking around at turkey fryer burners to take my brewing process out on the patio... And to hopefully speed up bringing things to temperature! What is a recommended BTU fryer for 5 gallon batchs? I did a search as I'm sure this has been asked before, but couldn't find the answer...

    Forgot my Irish Moss during boil, how to clarify now?

    Thanks everyone! I think I'll give the gelatin thing a shot... If for no other reason than to add another tool to the box.

    Forgot my Irish Moss during boil, how to clarify now?

    True, the secondary will clear it a bit... Just looking for something to really get it cleaned up. Don't think I can do the cold crash technique since I don't have a spare fridge laying around...

    Forgot my Irish Moss during boil, how to clarify now?

    Forgot to add the irish moss in at the end of my boil last Friday... And it's a Pale Ale, so, I'd like to get it to clear if possible... Are there any tricks that I can use when transferring to a secondary? I plan on kegging this one after it's in the secondary for a bit...

    Transporting a keg before CO2...?

    So, I've got a Lager which I'd like to get in a keg and ready for a party... Only thing is, the secondary is up in my basement in upstate NY, and my kegging stuff is down here in NJ... Is it a bad idea to fill the keg, and drive it down to NJ (approx 2.5 hours) without putting it on CO2?

    Water Cooler Bottles...?

    I'm sure this has been adressed before... But, I didn't find anything. Has anyone used or does anyone know if it's ok to use water cooler bottles as a primary/secondary fermenter...? The ones I have seen are all #7's and at 5 gallons seem like a great size! I looked up Better Bottles and...

    Effects of light on beer

    If you are worried about the heat trapped by the blanket... Use an old T-shirt instead, and if it's warm spray it down with water or put it in a water bath, the evaporation will help keep it cool... And the shirt will block some of the light, not as much as a blanket, but it sounds like there...
