    Steinbeer

    was it me or did the article kind of do some double speak with the granite. I don't have the article with me now but it said something like "Granite is a good choice with it having moisture content and can easily explode" explode when heated and good for brewing did not make sense to me but i...

    Hops question

    Whoops, simple algebra vexed me!!. HBU divided by AA.

    Hops question

    So 7 oz @ 1AA = 7HBU or 1 oz @ 7AA = 7HBU What is the AA of the Saaz you have? take AA divided by HBU to get the oz needed. simple ALGEBRA!! (that you never thought you would use after high school!!)

    Blow-Off tube

    i have done nothing different for my starter. just made one from a smack pack because it blew open when i smacked it. (that is also new) thought maybe there was someting broken down during a longer boil that wasn't during the late additions

    Blow-Off tube

    This is the first time I have actually needed a blow-off assembly for my carboy. it is a 7gal and i have 5 gal of Northern Brewer's Australian Sparkling Ale going in it. i don't know what happened but it took off like a shot. I made a starter with Thames Valley yeast and pitched at the right...

    Where does all the beer go?

    i brew 10 gal a month on average. 120gal last year. i just keep a fresh supply and i only drink from two kegs at a time. when i think i am running low in a keg, i will rack to a third keg and then force carb and finish the other keg. replace as needed. i just keep a steady line of beer in...

    Where does all the beer go?

    If you think about how much beer is in 10 gallons, about 100ish (give or take 5 for trub). One or two (possibly 3 or 4 on weekends) beers per night for one person. Drinking a 6 pack a day is not out of the question for a couple. that is about 35-45 beers per week. i would not concider that...

    Simple Rules for Drinking My Homebrew

    I have a friend that comes over and samples beer. His SWMBO, takes one sip of homebrew, (i mean touches lips to foam), flairs nostrils, then doesn't want anything to do with the rest. Then complains that we don't have any thing for her to drink. I give her water!!

    Starter length of time on the stir plate?

    @bmac yeast will NOT ferment with O2 present, they go through respiration, the break down of sugar with oxygen present. both fermentation and respiration release CO2 but only one will allow for yeast to reproduce. there is more energy released (used) from sugar during respiration, giving the...

    Starter length of time on the stir plate?

    wouldn't the presence of oxygen give the little buggers the proper condition for propagation and not fermentation? isn't that what a stir plate does? keeps the oxygen content to where propogation would possible and keeps them from fermenting. so why would the yeast stop reproducing after 18-24...
