    Dry Hop Not Working?

    Yeah. If this batch comes out jacked up again, I'm done trying to make beer. It's getting out of hand. Nothing I have made taste good. I don't know how people say the sample from bottling taste great. Mine taste bad, period. I got new yeast, bottled water, fermentation fridge with temp...

    Dry Hop Not Working?

    They say that the hop oils get lost in primary because the oils stick to the yeast in suspension. Less yeast = less aroma loss

    Cost to upgrade 240v panel

    Is he just adding a 30 amp breaker inside the current panel? Or running a new sub panel? Do you have an electric dryer, electric water heater or electric stove? If so, you already have 240v service. You just need to run a new circuit. It is hard to say without looking at it but it could be...

    Dry Hop Not Working?

    I've dry hopped 2 batches with 2 oz of hops. I got no aroma. I am going to be dry hopping this next week with 4 oz of hops. I hope it works this time. It's really bothering me too. Edit: I bottle condition also.

    My stout has a sharp "bite", is my water the culprit?

    How long did you leave the bottle in the fridge? Put a few in the back of the fridge for a week before tasting. Shoot, even a couple days make a difference.

    Two fridges, one circuit

    I'm going to say this and maybe someone else will chime in. You should have a 15amp breaker protecting that circuit and I want to say that the fridge alone is pulling about 7amps. So, two of them puts you at a14 amp draw. Anything else else on the circuit will over load causing the breaker to...

    Who uses garden hose water to brew?

    any hose will get you 'hose water taste' if you let the water sit. I use a 6ft hose for brewing and I hang it up to dry after use. The water from the hose bibb is the same water that comes out of your kitchen faucet and in your toilet. I apologize if you already know this.

    Star san spray bottle?

    Yeah. There's no need to mix five gallons. It's a waste. I mix 1.5 gallons and use my hands to sanitize the bucket walls and lid. I do the same for my siphon, bottle wand, etc. I do have sanitizer in spray bottle to get the bucket lid and airlock. Remember, it's a contact sanitizer and foam...
