    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?

    65 GPH... Is it enough?

    Found a 65GPH submersible pump for free... Is it even worth trying to hook it up to my immersion chiller? Or will it not pump anywhere close to enough water through the chiller?

    One-step shelf life

    I've done a rudimentery search and haven't found this info... Once One-step is mixed with water, how long can it be stored? I'm tired of making up a four cup or gallon batch just to sanitize when making a SG reading...

    Question on attenuation...

    First off... Hello all! This is my fourth (fifth if you count the first which didn't end up with much alcohol, but tastes great) batch, and it's my first "high gravity" brew... I'm doing a Scotch Ale OG was 1.096... It's down to about 1.028 now 9 days later... which means an approximate...
