I am starting to purchase equipment for kegging and have a question if this setup sounds good. It is pretty basic, but feedback is always helpful.
I have a 12 cubic foot fridge which I plan to have space for three cornies. I want to always have two beers on tap and one keg carbonating in...
The similar threads feature at the bottom of this thread led me to other posts that answered some of my questions. I tried searching for it before I posted but couldnt find anything. Needless to say, I think i found some of the answers i was looking for in a few other threads. Thanks.
I found a used 36 bottle Danby wine fridge on kijiji. Anyone know if this could work as a possibility for storing some kegs? Im hoping to find a fridge that will hold two cornys. Any ideas? Im also curious on the temp controls on a wine fridge and if i would have to make any adjustments...
question: i only have access to sweet orange peel. This will be my first time brewing a belgian wit, any suggestion on how i might adjust accordingly? Or is it even that big of a difference in the first place? Thanks,
i have a first year plant that has been eaten a little by canker worms. Now that the canker worms are going away, i see red ants on the vine. Is that a problem? I heard that they are not necessarily that bad for a garden. Is this true? Any advice would be much appreciated.
So I want to make Joes quick grape mead (recipe below). I want to make a 5 gallon batch. A few questions:
1) Do i need to make a yeast starter, or can i just rehydrate and pitch
2) How much extra sorbate and campden do i need to add to make up for the extra must?
Recipe Type: All Grain...
Thanks, ill try that. Just out of curiosity and for future reference. If I was going to add more grain to the bill, would i just want to add more to the base malt, or would i have to add all the grains just at the ratio in the recipe?
Im wanting to do this recipe that i found here, but its rated at an efficiency of 78% and i have only gotten between 60-70%. Its a belgian strong ale so I want to make sure i hit my original gravity. I read here that on strong ales its sometimes good to calculate your grain bill with a 10%...
I was reading up on storing grain here a few weeks ago. Today as I was going around to some bakeries to get their old flour and margarine buckets as dry containers for canoeing, I realized that those would also be good (and usually free:rockin:) containers for storing grain. So i picked up a...
Just out of curiosity, if there are people from Winnipeg, MB, Canada out there, or people who have had Fort Garry Dark Ale or Half Pints Stir Stick Stout (both great beers), im looking at trying to make a clone recipe of both of these. Any ideas?
I am looking to make this recipe from Brewsmith. But i want to use up some of my domesitic 2 row. Its rated at about 1.6-1.9. Any ideas how i might make up for this mistake by adding a little bit of extra grain elsewhere? Thanks,
For 5.5 Gallons
Assuming 78% Efficiency...
I bought some used equipment off of a guy to venture into the world of all grain. I got a huge bag that says in red lettering:
Does anybody know what kind of grain this might be. I assume two-row, but is it pilsner? or pale? Thanks is advance.
Any chance someone else has a hop substitution chart? I cant get fermantor's chart to load. Im looking to substitute .5oz of fuggles in a mild ale. The recipe calls for 2oz of fuggles and i have 1.5oz in the freezer. Any ideas,
