    Cultured Pacman brew.

    I propagated some Pacman from a couple of Dead Guys and pitched into EdWort's Haus Pale last night. Wow! that yeast is awesome. I already have about a 3 in thick Krausen and the airlock is working over time. Can't wait to see how it turns out. Webbie

    Strike water temp for EdWort's Haus Pale Ale

    Could anyone give my a rough estimate of the strike water temp for this recipe? I don't seem to recall seeing it in the recipe. Assuming my grain is in the 65 to 70 degree range and I preheat my cooler MLT. Thanks.

    Help with keg disassembly.

    My cousin gave me a few pin locks that I am trying to take apart and clean. I managed to get the gas in (two pin) post off with a wrench. I will have to rig up a socket to get the liquid post off. The question is this: I can't figure out how to get the poppet valve out of the post. The feet...

    Turkey Fryer troubleshooting?

    I bought a Bass Pro Shop turkey fryer that has been advertised on sale. I put it together and I can not get it to work properly. I think there is a problem with the regulator. There is a small blue flame, but no pressure and not "real" flame. Any ideas what may be wrong? Webbie

    Missed OG with Extract?

    5 gal MLT?

    I have only brewed one extract kit, and already kicking the AG option around. (I'm hooked) I saw that igloo has a max therm 5 gallon beverage cooler (approx. $40) that has an insulated lid and supposedly keeps ice for 5 days @ 90 F. Would this be worth a look at making a MLT? How big of a...

    Brewed first batch tonight

    I finished my first brewing experience tonight at midnight. I started at 8 and it was a pale ale extract kit with steeping grains. Most things went okay, made a few noob mistakes. Did not get an OG, and did not have enough boiled top off water to get to 5 gal. Just used tap water for the...
