    Connecticut 20 bags of priming sugar, 1lb bag of rice hull

    Hey I have these items that I'd like to go to a good home. If you want to buy them, by all means. The priming sugar is a mix of 4.5oz and 5oz bags. Offer me something in trade. Maybe your own brew? I'm not going to use them so if you want 'em, shoot me a PM. I work in Manhattan so if you can...

    Caramel Apple Hard Cider

    I've done the same with kegged hard ciders before and have had no problems. I cold crashed the batch down to high 30's and let it sit for a few days before racking it to a chilled keg. Since the keezer is set to 39 deg I have not experienced any additional fermentation in the keg - or if there...

    Can I "save" my Oktoberfest?

    I brewed up an AHS Oktoberfest this past weekend and was in the process of cooling it down to 54 deg to pitch two packets of Saflager 34/70 yeast. Then I tweaked my back and I found out that my fermentation freezer isn't chilling below 68 deg (a craigslist find that seems to have run its...

    Yeast trade - anyone interested?

    If there is anyone in CT Fairfield county that wants some Danstar Munich dry yeast, I have three packets that I can give away free (one may be outdated). If you want to give me a yeast/something in return, that's cool. If not, that's fine too. I also have a lb bag of rice hull that I'll...

    20lb Steel Tank - CT

    It's empty and I'll check the date and post when I get home tonight. I got it on an exchange program from the local gas place early this year so it should be valid.

    Kolsch - Skim Krausen? - Cold Crash?

    I'm three days into my first first Kolsch too. I also used WLP029 and it is fermenting at 61 deg give or take a degree. My plan is to give it about 3 weeks, bring it up to room temp (~68 deg) for two or three days to finish up, then cold crash down at mid to low 30's for a week before racking...

    Easy Stovetop All-Grain Brewing (with pics)

    DeathBrewer, How do you handle multi-step infusion brewing with this method? I've seen some brews that calls for different temperatures at different times of the mash process before the boil. Is it just a matter of turning the stove on with the grain/nylon bag sitting in the pot until the...

    Ranco Controller

    I have a similar issue with a Johnson digital temp controller. The cooling swings the temperature lower than the set lower bound. Interested in learning why this might be the case.

    17 day fermentation and counting

    Revvy, do you have an exact name, part number or a link for this rubber valve? I checked on Northern Brewer and couldn't spot it. This would work out great for my fermentation freezer since I need to attach a wooden collet to get a second fermenter in there. With this rubber valve on a...

    Fermentation not starting

    The grain bill was: 6.75 lb Maris Otter Malt, 0.5 lb Crystal 60L Malt I didn't make a starter because these were dry yeast packets. I did proof the Windsor so I know it wasn't a dead packet. I just tossed in the S04. You guys have given me a new idea! I used dried yeast because I didn't want...

    Fermentation not starting

    Both yeast packets were stored in the keezer which is maintained at 38 deg F. I guess I can try to pitch another packet of S04. The Windsor had an Sept 11 expiration date. I don't know what the date is on the S04 but I only bought it two months ago so I should expect that it hadn't expired...

    Fermentation not starting

    I pitched at 61 deg. The 2nd pack was also pitched at 61 deg. I brought up the fermenter to a warmer place and it's been sitting at 63 deg temperature for the past three days..

    Fermentation not starting

    I brewed up a AHS Ordinary Bitter last week using DeathBrewer's All Grain Stove Top method. My mash temperature was too high. I was shooting for 165 deg water temp so that it would drop to 154 deg when the grain was added in. It wound up at 170 deg and I had to add some water to eventually...

    anyone had AHS Bavarian Hefewiezen?

    I've brewed the AHS AG hefe kit and I've also brewed the extract Midwest Hank's hefe multiple times using liquid yeast. Taste is a subjective matter so your mileage may vary. However, I had better response on the Hank's hefe. Both kits were quality kits so that shouldn't be the determining factor.
