    Bootleg Biology Funk Weapon #2

    Brewed a NE style IPA with this yeast and I turned out better than expected. I got inspiration from HBT member @mintyice who has a bloq up reviewing the yeast. I couldn't find a lot of enough on it but it sounded interesting so I decided to use it and like I mentioned earlier, it was fantastic...

    Kettle souring in an electric kettle to hold temps

    I'm planning my first sour beer using bootleg biology's sour weapon. They recommend holding at 98 degrees for 18 hours to get the PH down to 3.3. If I use my electric kettle to hold temps would the heating element kill the bacteria when it cycle's one to maintain temps?

    Can Brett and Pedio be harvested?

    Posted this in the yeast section as well, but probably better to ask here. I just pre ordered Funk Weapon #2 and Sour Weapon from Bootleg Biology and I'm excited to try both. This will be my first time working with both of these. Can I still use my harvesting methods like I do me regular...

    Can Brett and Pedio be harvested?

    I just pre ordered Funk Weapon #2 and Sour Weapon from Bootleg Biology and I'm excited to try both. This will be my first time working with both of these. Can I still use my harvesting methods like I do me regular yeast? I build a big starter, save about half for future use and pitch the other...

    Counter top brew stand

    I see a lot of outside brew stands but nothing for the counter top for an electric system. So I just built this counter top stand for my eBIAB system. I might tweak a couple things but the basic idea is there. Just used 2x4 and cement board for the top which is water and heat resistant. I might...

    Mash PH adjustment before mash temps reached

    Is there any downside to adding all your brew salts and acid to your water, then adding your grain and checking PH before heating to mash temps before conversion starts? My system is eBIAB so I could regulate mash temps after the grains are added.

    Dropping secondary ingredients in the primary

    My wife wants to brew a xocoveca style stout for a Christmas party on the 24th so this leaves me with about 3 weeks from grain to glass. I have looked up some clone recipes on here and all call for the spices, pepper and chocolate to be added to the secondary after two weeks in the primary...

    Recirculating mash without a heat exchanger

    I was thinking of trying a recirculating mash but was wondering if there would be much harm in doing so by just using my kettle and mash tun. Pump water out of my kettle into the mash tun then gravity feed it out of my mash tun back in the kettle. If I keep an eye out on my temperature and keep...

    Yeast help for a hef/rye IPA

    I wanted to make a hef/rye IPA but I'm stuck on which yeast to use. I was thinking of going with the English Ale WLP002 or the Hef WLP300, any thoughts? Does any one know if I would get bad flavors if I mixed the two? I have used the WLP300 before and love the banana and clove you get from it...
