    First press of the season

    The press was built in 1965 but the other components have been sourced and are much younger. It's a labor of love and I promise you we are doing apples, although I'm sure that if we change the gap on the grinder we could do grapes as well...lol The project started because we wanted to...

    March Pump Model 809 H S

    Sooo.... I have these two pumps that I purchased a while back with every intention of building a brew system. I have done absolutely nothing but am now getting the project going. I am looking for suggestions for quick connect fittings and ball valves that will make the hose changing much...

    First press of the season

    So, this past Saturday we put together, and promptly started using our new apple press to start off the pressing season. We only had a short time but we picked up some seconds, gave them a good washing, and went to work. We got the press so that we would have a little more control over what...

    Interesting seperation

    Yea, it was definitely weird, but I just went with it. It was like 3am when I wwas done and cleaned up and took that picture, so i wasn't all that worried at the time. I didn't pitch right away because my starter wasn't really going yet, so I will pitch tonight when I get home.

    Interesting seperation

    I forgot to mention, I did whirlpool and avoid transferring most of the break material to the carboy when siphoning. I was able to cool very rapidly so the break material separated rather nicely so I know that I got the bulk of it out. I have faith that the beer will turn out fine, however, I...

    Interesting seperation

    So, last evening, I did the partial mash recipie of BM's Oktoberfast. Everything went well, however...prior to pitching, the carboy looked like this... Any thoughts on what's going on there...??

    Iodine Test

    Excellent, I did the mash at ~155 for 60 min so I think that I'm good. I did the test and it didn't turn black, so I think I'm in the clear. Good times. Thanks... :)

    Iodine Test

    So, I'm in the middle of my first partial mash, and I want to make sure that all of the sugars have converted... I've checked the Wiki, and I haven't see anything noted of the Iodine test... I watched Yuri's video's a while back where he did the test, however I can't find it currently. I...

    iBrew - An iPhone Brew Log

    Well, I think that this would be a fantastic idea. I don't currently use the iphone, but still an excellent idea. My only comment, similer to thewatersci, would be that any individual with the desire to use this will most likely already have one of the brewing software packages. I could see...
