    when to remove hops

    Hey everyone, I've always had this question but haven't asked it yet! Let's say we're dealing with a standard 1-2-3 hopping profile for a recipe, with the flavor hops going in at 30 min and the aroma hops going in at flameout or with 1 min left. I'm using a 25' copper immersion wort...

    Thermostat Seems Inaccurate

    Hmm but I thought the Johnson Controls a419 could do the same thing as the STC 1000? I'm reading online that you can change the jumpers of the a419 to control heat...so if I add the heat source I should still be able to use the one I have right? (just changing the jumpers in winter and summer I...

    Thermostat Seems Inaccurate

    Good point. Not sure why I was thinking it would do that. So basically I can only use the fermenter to lager when the ambient temperature is higher than what I want inside the freezer... (Or unless I convince the wife to put the freezer inside the apt haha). Also I realized that I misnamed...

    Thermostat Seems Inaccurate

    Hi all, So I picked up an old chest freezer on Craig's List and a new Johnson Controls A419 temp controller from BrewInternational. I have my set temp at 65° and the differential at 1°, but temp on the controller has stayed around 50° today (won't go up to 65). I have had a lab...

    Recipe Feed Back - Irish Red Ale

    I see this is an old thread, but just curious if anyone is still playing with CIA clones and if so what you guys have come up with.

    Recipe Feed Back - Irish Red Ale

    Has anyone tried one of these recipes recently? What has been your closest clone? One thing I'm wondering about is where the sour taste comes from. I would even consider toning down the sour just a bit, even though it's already in the background. I wouldn't want to completely remove that...

    Deciding between Lagunitas UP A recipes

    Mine says light, but maybe I have an outdated version. I just picked it up for a few bucks online somewhere. In mine the recipe is on p. 49. I don't see a date on the front/back covers or inside. Now that I look at the BYO recipe again, it's target alcohol is 5.7%, whereas the recipe given...

    Ah okay thanks!

    Deciding between Lagunitas UP A recipes

    Is it because the quantity is so low or because Munich seems strange for the recipe. Just curious! :)

    Deciding between Lagunitas UP A recipes

    Thanks for the response bud. That recipe looks interesting too. A little bit of wheat and slightly different hop profile. Not sure which I'll go with. The BYO magazine says that they got quite a bit of info from brewers as well, but they don't say which brews that applies to. I might give it a...

    Deciding between Lagunitas UP A recipes

    Hey all, I'm going to do an all-grain clone of Lagunitas IPA, and I have two recipes--one from Szamatuliski's book Clone Brews and one from BYO magazine's special newsstand edition 250 Classic Clone Recipes. I'm sure either will be quite tasty, but just curious if anyone has experience with...

    Cooling Efficiency of Different Size Cold Plates?

    Hey everyone. I'm researching a 4-tap jockey box build and have a couple questions about the cold plate before I purchase. My first question is, do larger length and width cold plates cool more effectively than smaller ones? (for instance, a 10"x15" plate versus an 8"x12" plate; examples...

    Hi all from Jersey

    Hey everyone. Don't think I ever posted in this thread. I joined several years back, brewed a couple batches, and then kind of let it go. Dug my old equipment out and cleaned it up. Managed to save my homemade mash tun--got the rust off with a few vinegar soaks. And back to brewing!
