    AG Hefeweizen Protein question

    It sounds like you may have boiled too hard. More rapid boiling will darken the beer a bit. And the hydrometer readings are fine.

    AG Hefeweizen Protein question

    Yup that looks about right for a wheat beer. I brew quite a few wheats and that looks about normal.

    Analyzing My First All Grain

    I have found thermometers will screw you....all the time...unless you invest in the best. I have heard thermopens are the shiznitz. I don't have one tbh. To expensive for me. I invested $20 in a lab themometer - easy read type - linky: Easy read PARTIAL immersion themometer I use...

    My Stirplate... Cheap and Easy Build...

    Yes...the objective is to move the yeast to the "food". I have had no problems with getting activity within a few hours due to no HUGE vortex. By just disturbing the surface of the liquid you should get enough oxygen transfer to support ludicrous propagation of yeaties :D

    First All grain started bad but I think I saved it.

    That's the great thing about home brewing. You never know what is gonna get thrown at ya! How you react really defines your brew. Glad you got it together. Tell us how it came out.

    New Beer TV show on Discovery! "How Beer saved the world"

    In the spirit of this post: Bitchin! Ya! They really are stretching some of the "facts" Wow. But hey, it's ok. We will just have a bunch of ignorant beer drinkers (BMCers) spouting all this "stuff" out and inspiring the more intelligent people to do a little research and become...

    New Beer TV show on Discovery! "How Beer saved the world"

    I like how they made beer into the corner stone of figuring out "germ theory". Fine by me :D

    New Beer TV show on Discovery! "How Beer saved the world"

    On another note - it is obvious after watching the first half of this show, most people are really ignorant of the history of beer and really just think it's a means to just get drunk with. This makes me sad. Very sad.

    What a cluster [email protected]$k!

    ^^ This Most thermometers are +/- 2F and those that are more precise are more expensive. I personally use a lab thermometer to calibrate all my other thermometers in the house - keeps the glass one from constant use and potential breakage. On top of that 2 or 3 degrees is not really the...

    When you drop the chiller in...

    The "dullness" is the protective oxide layer formed on copper. When you leave it immersed in a highly reactive or acidic cleaner it strips this oxide layer away. Issue? no. dirty? no. I toss my immersion chiller in at the end when I think about it. Unless you left your chiller...

    Water filter for more clear beer !?

    Correction - it really depends on the filter. If it's equipped with activated carbon or whatnot then it will really clean up. If you suck up the yeast it will get clogged and require backflushing etc. Here is a decent thread on it from another forum: Carbon filtration And here is the wiki...

    Nice LOL :D

    Water filter for more clear beer !?

    Using a water filter for beer is a pretty bad idea. Best case scenario, you get pure water when filtering your wort (after about the first pint then it will just clog). Worst case scenario, it immediately clogs - 99.9% sure this will happen. Either way you waste money. Time...
