    Yeast starter from finished beer

    Alright, due to an oversight on my part, I will not be able to obtain the yeast I want (white labs 001) for when I brew on Monday (Canadian long weekend). My plan is to take 600ml of my IPA I just kegged (4 weeks since pitching 001) and add it to 1.4 L of DME wort in my starter flask. I'm...

    Accidentally made my 15gal pot into a 28gal pot.

    Ok, maybe it wasn't an accident but that's my story I'm sticking to it! I've always been brewing with a Morebeer 15 gallon pot as my boiler and it has served me very well over the years. That is, until I got a 27 gallon fermenter. My friends are starting to take more and more interest in...

    Question about Taprite LHT valves

    Hello, I've been meaning to pick up one of these dual regs by Taprite. My problem is I use MPT threads on all my lines for ease of disconnecting, moving the tank around, etc. I would just buy the right valves but apparently they are left hand thread. According to the above site, they...

    Losing beer from hop trub after boil

    Is this something that I just need to accept? I brew all grain, 10gal batches with pellet hops and irish moss at 15 min. I whirlpool and whirlpool and have never gotten this mound of trub in the centre. Don't get me wrong, that trub settles out to make wort clearer than I can get a finished...

    MoreBeer 27 Gallon Conical Fermenter

    Hey everyone, I picked up a MoreBeer 27 Gallon Concial and thought I would share. While researching the fermenter I wasnt able to find much on HBT about the MoreBeer 27 gallon so I figured I'd put up some nice resolution pics of the old girl. If you want to see the full HQ pics they are...

    Tri-clover will not seal!

    Hey everyone, So I was all stoked that my 27 gal Morebeer conical arrived. I transferred a 10gal batch to her for the maiden voyage but I am having some trouble. I cant seem to be able to get a seal around where the butterfly valve attaches to the stem of the fermenter. I've drained the beer...

    Brewing a concentrated wort

    Hey guys, So let me preface with I've searched and cant seem to find a solid answer to this. If this thread goes well, I'll be adding the info to the wiki. I have been having an influx of demand for my beer (started military pilot training) and would like to boost my production. I have...

    Fridge to hot tub line

    So I will be moving into a pretty sweet house that has a hot tub built into the deck. I have a pretty kickin' kegerator as it stands right now, but I want to put a tap outside on the deck next to the hot tub. It's not very practical but I don't do anything in this hobby for practicality...

    Can I de-bitter this?

    Hey all, So I have a few parties coming up that I've be tasked to provide beer for. I didnt have much time so I had to work with what I had. I've only done about 5 AG brews but all have come out fine. Since I was only going for a session beer that would be gone in a night, I just used...

    I was tired of lifting buckets of water over my head

    So not too long ago I posted my new three-tier wooden brew stand (www.dustysbrew.com). Since my HLT was so damn high on the top tier, it made filling and topping it mid brew with water difficult and annoying. I wanted to use my hose but everyone knows how gross hose water is. Below is my...

    My new brewery, kegerator, and first AG brew day

    Hey everyone, So I have been working away in the background for quite some time now making my new three tier brew stand out of wood. It was my conversion to all grain and I have also been making all of the respective vessels that are required for AG. I also made a nice kegerator a while back...

    Dry Nottingham not starting

    Hey guys, So my first AG brew was on Sunday. Everything went well and I got a post boil OG of 1.057 at 8 gallons. Prior to going AG I was using a homebrew kit called FestaBrew (fully hydrated wort made by a brewery in Western Canada) which comes with dry yeast. I had never had any problem...

    Sankey Bronco Pump to CO2 Mod

    Greetings All, I've been perusing these forums for quite some time now and figured it was time to contribute something that may come in handy for someone down the road. I recently planned a kegger at home as a going away for a friend. I decided to buy a 58L sankey keg of PBR to...
