    Duda Diesel - 30 Plate Chiller

    Just picked up one of the 30 plate versions today after using a friend's therminator. Got some camlocks coming to so hopefully I can use it on my next brew day this weekend.

    What is This?

    Sorry misread it as you hadnt made a drinkable beer yet. That being said like the other poster said it will be something pale and carmely. Maybe lower the mash temp a bit and it will be a bit dryer in the finish.

    What is This?

    If you havent made a beer you could drink yet why are you throwing together recipes? I would recommend using established recipes to get your system dialed in so you can track down where issues are.

    Simple March / Chugger Pump Swith Help

    Yeah I will probably just do something simple like that. I might even do a easy toolbox build. I want to add pid's eventually but for now I just want something that works.

    Any other recent/to be new Dads?

    I have a 2.5 year old Boy and we are having a girl any day now. Rushing like crazy to get my brew stand done so brewing will go smoother and quicker (hopefully).

    Simple March / Chugger Pump Swith Help

    I have a Chugger pump and it is hooked up to my brew stand I am building. I am not faced with the project of building some sort of switch to turn it on and off. What have people done before that is simple and useful? Most the projects I see are intense electric brewery builds. Would love...

    My Weldless Brew Stand

    The one in the last picture? It is a needle valve, specifically built for an application such as this. It allows for finer control than ball valves. Found them at Ace Hardware in the gas plumbing section.

    Weldless brew stand.

    For mine? It might be, but I got mine at Mcmaster, I bought 12 five foot long sections and cut them to length as needed.

    My Weldless Brew Stand

    Well I got inspired by the great posts here and elsewhere on the internet and took the dive into making my own brew stand. I don't have a lot of experience with building things but figured I could handle a weldless stand. I bought 12 5 foot sections from McMaster and then a friend helped...

    pumpkin ale questions

    Again stop worrying. Try 12 ozs if that works then great. If not use more or less water. Add spices. Start off smaller. If the beer needs more taste add more.

    1st ever batch. My OG is not even close. Any ideas??

    Oh boy get ready for a round of squeezing the grains debate! Generally though you shouldnt really do that. Just let the water drain out of them. There is a lot of debate about squeezing delivering off flavors. As for volume yes you can and should top up especially if you overshot your...

    pumpkin ale questions

    ahh this recipe does say 1 teaspoon total of all the spices. that seems a little light but i usually work in grams/ounces so I am not quite sure how much that is. I would say last 5 minutes of boil should be fine. Taste it if you are moving to secondary, if you think it needs more add more.

    1st ever batch. My OG is not even close. Any ideas??

    I will second that I still think it is probably a volume issue. More beer generally knows what they are doing. And I second the more yeast, 2 packets is not too much for a beer that big if you did end up there. Since no one has asked, how and when did you measure your OG?
