    Giveaway for Inkbird Bluetooth bbq Thermometer IBT-4XS with 4 probes!(ended)

    Something like this would be great in my smoker since there are definite hotter and cooler areas.

    Grain mill roller diameter?

    I also know this thread is old, but this is the worst idea I've ever heard.

    Cold Crash In Bucket

    It's not the vodka or sanitizer that's the issue. It's the oxygen.

    Drilling into stainless with a bit that is not stainless

    Not necessarily. For low quantities, a shop might use HSS (most likely TiN coated), although they would also (where possible) be using flood coolant. And for high quantities and deeper holes, they'd likely use carbide. If a cobalt drill chips, it can be touched up on a standard aluminum...

    Logo votes needed!

    It's my favorite of the three. I was going to suggest that you put "brewing co" in the same font as "bearded hops" before I saw the third one, but you beat me to it.

    Beer Water Filtration

    Honestly, I think your money would be much better spent on sending a sample to Ward Labs to have it tested. Then you'll know exactly what's in your water and can make an informed decision on what, if any, corrective actions you should take.

    Sales all the time!!!

    I recently bought some kegging equipment from them. Not only did they have the lowest prices on every single component, but shipping was stupidly cheap (around $1.57 or so) after a $5 discount and I had my stuff two days later. I've never bought grains from them, as I just pick them up...

    Dead Ringer yeast selection

    Yes, most of Bell's beers use their house yeast. Oberon and their amber ale are popular choices to harvest from because they're lower in ABV and hops, so the yeast won't be as stressed. This is the basic idea for harvesting yeast...

    Dead Ringer yeast selection

    I just brewed a Two Hearted clone and harvested Bell's house yeast from a sixer of Oberon. If you don't want to do that, Wyeast 1272 is just about identical.

    Create a starter to pitch and to store

    I've been using Brulosopher's method with great results. To me, it just makes the most sense to do it that way.

    Their Scream IIPA is excellent.

    Thoughts on this Method of Bottle Conditioning/Hopping?

    Are you making any adjustments to your water? I've found that to make a big impact on the perception of hops in my brews. Also, if you dry hop after fermentation is complete, you won't lose much to flocculation. You can even dry hop after cold crashing if you want.
