    Tri Sodium Phosphate (TSP)

    Apparently TSP is no longer environmentally correct. Nobody around here sells it anymore. There is a substitute called TSP/90 that is a liquid. A 5 lb box of powder TSP would last me several months and cost about 9 bucks. This new liquid crap says a whole container will make 2.5 gallons of...

    What do ya'll think of this recipe?

    I recently made a lemon wheat that was really good (to me). Light and crisp. Got to thinking and came up with this. Showed the recipe to a AG EAC friend of mine and his comment was(with sarcasm dripping off the edges), "looks like a unique brew. Tell me how the last glass tastes."...

    Whirlfloc ???

    I'm on my second brew using whirfloc as a clearing agent. I drop it in in the last 15-20 minutes of the boil. It seems to me that it seriously increases the amount of trub in the beer. Also, when the krausen forms, it is very thick and doesn't completely drop, even after two weeks there is...

    Natural Gas vs Propane

    I bought a new (to me) house last month. I had a gas line installed from the furnace to power the kitchen range. While doing so, I had the dude stub in a line so I can run a burner in the garage, instead of running a propane tank. Can any of you good people give me an idea of what kind of...
