    malt testing

    so after a bit of research at the local library (and looking at a study done to detmine if malting barley could be grown in maine) I found this method for determining protien content in grain Kjeldahl method which is just what I'm looking for!

    malt testing

    So recently I have considered producing my own malt, But I want to test the malt I make to make sure it's suitable. I know I could just brew with it and see what happens but I'd really rather not swing that way. so the tests I think I've figured out is % water- place grain in a vacuum...

    Unmalted barley

    CO2 capture: track fermentation?

    bah, with the standard 3 piece plastic airlock you could modify it with a trip switch so each time the piece in the middle comes down it would get counted. You'd just have to make sure you have a suitable amount of water in the air lock, not too much and not too little. when You have this...

    where do you guys get your copper

    Just started thinking about building my all grain system, and started to price out copper. the stuff is crazy expensive! does anyone know of a good place on line to get your copper?

    1 gallon keg

    So investigating this mini keg system, seems nifty and people say you can use the kegs up to 10 times if you take care of them. the problem, I guess, is that the liner wears out. anyone know f a place that makes stainless steel food grade ones. I'd probably start out with the ones with liners...

    1 gallon keg

    Quick question though, isn't copper not suppose to touch finished beer, If I am reading this right the copper tube touches finished beer, its an easy fix, just replace the copper with Stainless steel. Also the dip tube is made of flexible clear tubing, I think I just have the stainless go all...

    1 gallon keg

    Most Excellent sir, this is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for. The only difference is I would order something like Corny gas post & Corny liquid post to streamline my operations. Nice Find :rockin:

    1 gallon keg

    This is an interesting idea, but quite frankly it scares me. any glass container that explodes would cause massive damage. If I was going to do this I would try to find a plastic growler, and stress test it for initial pressure (putting the pressure to it until something blows (safety...

    small scale brewing questions

    so I want to start brewing all grain on a very small scale, to experiment with making recipe's from scratch. (think 12 pk) I was wondering what the concerns associated with small scale brewing where, I know there is some concern over the head space to volume ratio in the fermenter, what...
