    Questions - eBIAB with single keggle

    lol the ring is actually the top of a plastic brewing pail, I bought 2 very large gear/hose clamps and put them together around the ring, that's what holds the bag to the ring.. this way the pulley can remain attached to the bag while I sparge as the bag is always wide open at the top (this is...

    Questions - eBIAB with single keggle

    check this one out - my home brewery has changed a whole lot since this picture, but I still use this exact bench and pulley for my 10 gallon eBIAB batches.. it's 2 old pulleys I already had, a 20$ boat winch, and 2 hinges I had kicking around for that arm that swings...

    Any way to save my beer ?

    I have had luck adding water afterwards - boil it for minimum 10 minutes to sterilize and evaporate chlorines etc... let cool to room temperature, and dump it right into primary... someone on here built a calculator to calculate how much water to add based on a desired FG... you'd have to...

    Bottling from keg for long-term storage

    IMO - there isn't really any way to do this really well without one of those beer guns... I use a hose with plastic picnic tap.. I heat the end of a 1 foot piece of hose and manage to stretch it over the tip of the picnic tap, then I lower the pressure to almost nothing in the keg, 1 or 2...

    In case you were referring to using them for secondary... it's best to have little to no headspace... not recommended to have 1 gallon of air on top of your beer while aging... That being said - I have done it a few times and have had no issues.

    I have 14 Gallon glass vessels... I brew 10 gallon batches in them... . but when I started I was brewing 5 gallon batches in them... so almost 60% of the vessel was airspace, and I still never had oxygen issues.. the beer produces so much CO2 that at the least, it creates a protective...

    electric element question

    In the event that an element would leak current into the liquid, the whole kettle itself would also be live.. and your bound to touch it eventually causing the same issue as using the metal spoon... so if you ask me, the idea is to ensure that the kettle and liquid doesn't get charged in the...

    American IPA Dogfish Head 60 Minute Clone (AG) & Extract

    brewed a 10 gal batch of this, and just finished drinking my last keg... this brew was great, i'm planing on brewing it again very soon.. I used pellet hops for the dry hopping also. the only critisism i could give is that i don't remember dogfish 60 being THIS grapefruity... the amarillo...

    Fruit Beer Lemon-Lime Hefe Weizen

    I also used WLP300... it's the closest yeast i could source.... i brewed it cold so that the bana flavor would be subdued.. so, i just kegged it tonight.... once done, i had a pitcher left with no container to bottle it in... guess what i did, DRANK THE WHOLE THING FLAT! it was great...

    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    you know what, i couldn't agree more, i'm the same way.... BUT, i will say that i prefer a 2-3 month lagered pilsner over something like this, however i am very proud of this beer.... and i definately agree that these light beers are actually alot harder to pull off than heavier beers...

    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    my first batch of this had an off flavor which I ended up diagnosing to be burnt matter left on my elements from scorching on the previous batch... dumped it... BUT!, i could tell that this was a good beer, so i brewed it again... I just kegged my second batch of this 11 days from...

    Fruit Beer Lemon-Lime Hefe Weizen

    I brewed up 15 Gallons of this today... unfortunately i was unable to find WLP380... closest thing i could find was WLP300 which i understands gives off alot more banana flavor... has anyone brewed this with WLP300? hopefully it will be good..
