    Color correction question in finished beer

    Hi all, I recently brewed a pale ale with ingredients on hand and didn't have any crystal 60. The beer came out great but the color was off. Thinking about entering it into a contest but the color is off. Any ideas on how to color correct a finished beer? Food coloring seems a little iffy...

    dirt cheap glycol chiller?

    Question for you all... I was thinking about building a glycol chiller as dropping a grand on a new one seems cost prohibitive at this point. I was thinking of going the deconstructed AC route but wondered is something infinitely less expensive would work just as well. What if I just took a...

    sanitation in aftermath of lacto infection

    Hi All, I could definitely use some help here. After 130 batches I have finally run into an unintended infection. I believe it's lacto after doing some web surfing. This was a Irish red that sat for about three weeks in the fermenter. I tasted a sample from below the surface and the beer was...

    Optimal PID settings for Inkbird ipb 16

    I have changed out a couple of elements since I first got this controller. I started using an element from brew hardware but ended up burning that one up. Then I started using a store bought 240 4500 w element but found I got a lot of scorching. I finally replaced my rims element with another...

    cheap Hopper Upgrade for Cereal Killer mill

    I have been doing 10 gallon batches and using somewhere in the 22 to 25lb grain bills. While I enjoy my cereal killer mill, it gets to be a pita to continually stop and feed more grain. In doing another project I ended up purchasing (5) 4.25 gallon HDPE containers. In this case it looks like...

    Looking for suggestions on gas routing with new rims

    Just got an awesome new rims set up and trying to incorporate it into my single tier brew stand. I have a brass line for my gas that is directly below the end of the burners that unfortunately would be in the way of where I want to mount it. So I see three options, two of which I am not sure...

    Hunt for a better 1/2" bulkhead plug

    I seem to be able to find some better looking plug covers for the smaller thermometer style holes like the pics below but all of the larger bulkhead covers seem to be just ugly hex head style. Anyone seen a more stylish plug?

    Hello all, Could really use your help. I wanted to try the 2016 Homebrew con winning Girl Scout Sweet stout for relatives this holiday. I followed the recipe and my FG has now settled at approx 1.026. The recipe calls for 1.018 so I thought maybe it's stalled. I checked back at Beersmith and...

    Water filter upgrade - Can I add on an RO membrane?

    Could use some recommendations on upgrading my filter. I currently have a 3 stage filter - pic attached - that has a 5 micron sediment, 5 micron granular carbon and 5 micron carbon block filter.

    Stout conical fermenter 12.5 G - Easy upgrade

    Had a Homer Simpson DOH moment the other day. I was considering upgrading to a newer conical with a wider dump port as I have had trouble with yeast dumps. I usually have to use co2 and do some burst pressurizing to get the yeast to dump when it's been sitting for a while. As I was cleaning...

    So I am just finishing packaging a cream ale and want to do another. I prepared a starter with 3 yeast packs wlp 80 (two were close to exp and another was expired) for the first 10 Gallon batch. This time I remembered to cool the batch and dump the trub prior to pitching. I hit the wort with...
