    Stir Plate Assistance

    I built a stir plate today but it seems to have some issues with it. When I first go to turn the stir plate on, it appears as though the magnets prevent the fan from starting to spin. Has anyone else has these problems? Is the fan too weak? The size of the wire on the fan is fairly small so I...

I know a lot of recipes (trillium) call for Columbus at the start of the boil, then at the whirlpool and a massive dry hop but does anyone have any other experience's with...

    Adding DME toward End of Boil

    So I have been having some trouble with hitting my OG numbers as of late. Whether it be inefficiencies, a poor crush or what have you, I want to know if it is OK to correct the OG numbers in the last 5 mins of the boil by adding DME. I know that this is normally done before you begin the...

    All, Long story short, I went to buy a new fermenter after my bucket cracked and carboy shattered, only to come home and find that someone had already purchased one for me. I cannot express enough appreciation for the gift however, it was not what I would have purchased. I ended up receiving...

    Kegging - Frankenstein Poppet/Post, will it work?

    Hi all, So over the past several batched I have begun to slowly switch the posts and poppets on all of my kegs to the universal type (with the 3/4" post and conical looking poppets). First time doing this, everything worked out great, so as a result, I ordered another set for the next keg. I...

    Ferm Fridge Builds

    Does anyone on here have a good link to a fermentation chamber build of someone taking apart and utilizing the guts from a NEWER mini fridge? I have attempted this and failed (can't hold temp) and I am looking to see what others may have done to make theirs work. For those who may be...

    Batch gone bad?

    How's it going everyone. So here's what happened, I built myself a fermentation chamber two weeks ago out of a mutilated 3 cu ft mini fridge. Built a wooden box and insulated it with 1.5" R-7.5 foam before and tested it with a couple gallons of water. Brewed a batch of beer this past weekend...

    Anyone Know Where I can get an O2 Bottle Adaptor?

    I've been searching for a couple of days and cannot seem to find one. I purchased an Anvil oxygenation kit from my LHBS because it was one of the cheaper ones I had seen and I had contemplated one for a while. I got home, opened it up and I noticed the poppet that pushes down on the pin is...

    Anvil Brewing...Your Experiences

    Has anyone purchased anything from Anvil Brewing? I searched the forum and could only find a short thread about one persons experience with their burner and it was mostly positive (although customer service did have to get involved). I understand they are owned by Blichmann but I am curious...

    How's it going everyone, as the title states, I am currently an extract brewer with about 15 batches under my belt considering going to BIAB. I was once considering going all grain with a cooler mash tun, and even went so far as to build the mash tun, but was a little too nervous about my...
