    Czech Premium Pale Lager Bohemian Pilsner (Silver Medalist)

    The only thing I changed was yeast, and I used WLP830. Other than that, I won't change a thing next time I brew it again. Good luck!

    Increase in Volume When Grain is Added?

    So basically you are trying to determine grain absorption numbers right? I have heard anywhere from 1/10 of a gallon of water per pound of grain up to 1/5 of a gallon per pound of grain. I tend to follow the 1/5 of a gallon of water to 1 pound of grain. So, for me, if I am doing a 5 gallom...

    Force carbing by the book but still flat

    Agreed...... You need to bump up that pressure, cool the keg, and shake the s**t out of it for a minute or two..... You will have carbonated beer in 24 hours.....

    Thermoelectric fermentor temp control

    I agree that the simplicity of this type of cooling is awesome. I have attached some pics of my setup. Like I stated before, I got this fridge not working, and for free, and when it was plugged in, nothing would happen. So I started at the power source. These particular fridges have like a...

    Thermoelectric fermentor temp control

    Ya, they are used here and there throughout brewing. I have a nucool fridge that I scored for free because it wasn't working, and it uses two peltier cooling cells. You are right, that if you build your own (heatsinks, power supply, fans, and cells) the cost probably wouldn't be worth it. But...
