    The last straw bottle filler

    Next weekend I'll be doing round two of using it. And believe me, if it doesn't work out, I'll let you know. This is supposed to be an IPA Christmas present. I'm going to try chilling the bottles before filling to see if that helps. As of now, I wouldn't recommend this over the cheap homebrew...

    The last straw bottle filler

    Well, just did a test run of 6 bottles. Definitely glad I tried it before moving onto the batch that is finishing up that I'm going to bottle. Lesson 1. Don't set it down in a bucket of sanitizer, use the clip to hang it on the edge of the cup. Beer will flow into the bucket from the weight of...

    The description is wrong but I ordered the pin lock and got a pin lock so that's good!

    I currently have a 1 to 4 co2 splitter in my keezer so I'm hoping I can make that work for this.

    Saflager US-05 ideal temp

    On a related note, does anyone know how much the 05 increased the fermentation temp vs the ambient temp? I had mine fermenting in about 62 degreee ambient temperature and it took about 48 hours to show air lock activity but it's been going pretty decent for the last two days.

    I would imagine if bottled properly it shouldn't matter. Hopefully someone with experience can chime in.

    The last straw bottle filler

    How does this purge the oxygen out? (nevermind this question, just read the part about tipping the bottle and letting it foam before capping to purge) I'm looking to bottle a whole kegs worth. I don't want to mess with bottling from a bucket and carbonating so I am just carbing it up in my keg...

    The last straw bottle filler

    Has anyone bought this yet? It looks very promising and easy to use. I just don't want to spend $80 (assuming I'll wait for one of the many 20% off sales) on it if it's not worth it. http://www.northernbrewer.com/the-last-straw-bottle-filler

    Dry hopped wrong, is it salvageable?

    Would you rehop with the same originally planned or a little less? I had 1.5 oz in it.

    Dry hopped wrong, is it salvageable?

    So this won't stop it from fermenting?

    Dry hopped wrong, is it salvageable?

    Hi everyone, I tried dry hopping for my first time and clearly made a first timer mistake, I put the dry hops in when I pitched the yeast, yesterday afternoon. What should I do??? Thanks!

    Adjustments going to a sparge from a full volume mash

    I actually used yours for my first BIAB. I just wasn't sure how to make an adjustment to sparging and using a partial volume mash. Your site worked great and helped a ton, thanks!
