    just checked and you are correct. I can make that change if I go that route

    Adding 120V to blichmann G2 kettle

    I have been reading a lot of threads on HBT and various articles elsewhere on moving to electric brewing. I want to add the ability to do electric brewing mainly for weather purposes (Chicagoland, nasty winters, but also not fun to sit around a flame when it’s 96 with 100% humidity). Currently...

    Putting beer back into fermenter

    Update: opened a 12 oz bottle yesterday just to test. It still needs some time in the bottle, but as far as any issues as a result of my missing capper, it's all good! And the beer is going to be really good in about 2 months!

    Half keg/half bottle questions

    When my brother and I package or collab brews, I typically keg my half (~2.5 gallons) and he bottles his half (also ~2.5 gallons). Since we started doing this, we have had quite a few batches on the bottle side turn into gushers. Typically what we do is siphon my half into the sanitized keg...

    Coffee malt

    My LHBS just started carrying coffee malt. I've made a couple coffee infused beers with some success and was wondering what I could expect from coffee malt. Anyone willing to share their experiences?

    Putting beer back into fermenter

    Bottles it earlier today! If I don't have any explosions this week, I'll have an update around the end of august as that is when we pop the first 12 oz tester! Thanks for the help, everyone!

    Putting beer back into fermenter

    Alright, opted to place sanitized caps on the bottles and place them in the fridge overnight. Fingers crossed. This is an imperial stout brewed in November that sat on bourbon barrel staves for 5 months. Would be sad if it went bad.

    Still weighing my options! This is one of the options

    Putting beer back into fermenter

    My brother can bring a capper over tomorrow. I might try placing the sanitized caps on them and getting them in a fridge

    Putting beer back into fermenter

    It is in the bottles. Went from fermenter, to bottling bucket, to bottles. Then I realized no capper.

    Putting beer back into fermenter

    So, I went through the whole process of bottling tonight and got to the point of actually capping only to realize I didn't have my capper. I'm thinking of just gently pouring everything back into a fermentation bucket with airlock and attacking it again in a few days. A) do I have another...

    Quick carb/hold carb

    I should clarify: these will not be tapped until 7/15. So I wanted to quick carb them now and let them sit.

    Quick carb/hold carb

    I need to carb two kegs in the next two weeks, but I don't have a splitter for my co2 and won't be able to get to my LHBS until after next weekend. I am going to quick carb both of them over the next few days. Typically when I do this, I give the keg 30psi for 24 hours. Turn off co2, release...

    Carbing psi lower than serving psi?

    Accidentally posted before finishing: 8 psi to carb, 10-12 psi serving pressure. Is that normal? Or should I just serve at 8?

    Carbing psi lower than serving psi?

    I'm about to carb a stout. I need 8 psi to carb.

    co2 drop

    Thanks!!!

    co2 drop

    Just kegged for the first time this morning. Had 700 psi when I started, at roughly 11 am cst. It's now 4 pm and it's down to 500 psi. I imagine the pressure drop can be attributed to being in a 38 degree keezer after being at roughly 68 degrees. Can anyone confirm and set my mind at ease...

    Custom glassware?

    Anyone have any suggestions on where to go to get custom glassware (pint glasses, etc) for a homebrewery?

    Weird efficiency! Please help!

    Any idea what legitimate breweries get efficiency wise? And what is about normal for all you guys?

    Weird efficiency! Please help!

    My volume was about 5.5 gallons, maybe a bit less.
