    Austin Home Brew ! ! !

    Revolutionary plastic Fermentation Information

    based on this chart, it seems logical that #2 plastics are the best of the plastics...and im sure that someone will argue that plastic is O2 permeable, but then whats to say: 1) the bung on your glass carboy is air tight? 2) that the amount of O2 entering your wine/beer is significant to...

    Revolutionary plastic Fermentation Information

    I have decided that no one can factually tell me if a recycle # of 1, 2, 7 or even a plastic garbage can bearing no symbol will in fact kill me before my liver stops...I think it is safe to say that fermenting, primary, secondary, long term storage can be achieved in almost anything... If a milk...

    Hefe....need some info...

    i really wanted to make a hefe/belgian wit hybrid (really just taking the 2 seperate recipes and taking some from each to make a mixed beer) but my buddy sent my this recipe for a hefe that he likes to make...when i make brews i normally use more grains (partial mash) like in the 2-4 lbs...

    Hefe....need some info...

    Hello, wanted to make a hefeweisen...first time...i am under the impression that in theory i could whip up a batch in less than 3 weeks (kegged) 7-10 days of ferment and 3-5 carbonating, since you technically do not have to wait for it to clear like other types of beers... is this a correct...

    Crash cool...How and why and where and who?

    so gelatin makes particles (non yeast?) fall out of suspension? or denatured proteins, etc... now if you used irish moss or whirfloc in the boil would it still be advantagous to use gelatin in the secondary or is that overkill??

    Crash cool...How and why and where and who?

    can someone explain "adding gelatin", how much? and do you add it when you crash cool? and what is the best way to add it (dry, or mixed with water?) thanks

    Crash cool...How and why and where and who?

    i have searched for "crash cooling" can anyone just breifly explain the how to of this. I assume you do it to stop yeast fermentation and possibly to drop the yeast to the bottom of your fermenter quicker??? Thanks I appreciate any help

    Semi Urgent Question About Grains And Pumpkin

    correct me if i am wrong, but you should steep the grains at 150 degrees... just yesterday i tried a new trick i learned here, i put the oven to 150 degrees (checked it with a thermometer to get the temp correct) then heated the water (i used 3 gals) on the stove to 150, then added the grains...
