    This might sound like a dumb question... But why would one use acidulated malt/ sauermalz?

    ⬆️ - lol A few of my recipes, pilsners for example, I couldn't get the correct pH from my source water with just lactic acid alone. I do find the budget lactic acid to have a strange smell, that may impart some off-putting smell/taste in the finished product. I also find that lactic acid can...

    propane burner has no back pressure

    It could be the propane tank as well. Newer tanks have a built-it flow limiting device, to reduce propane flow in case of leak. It can be activated under several circumstances, but I find opening the valve too quickly almost always activates.

    When did craft beer prices “jump the shark”

    It depends on how you value your time. If you were to pay yourself a salary for the brew day, it would be close. If you had a loan or lease or other overhead, you'd be very close. IF you hired help, you'd be struggling. I still prefer to brew my own and I know I can brew "cheaper" with...

    DIY Glycol Chiller build

    Awesome input! I have been thinking about doing the same with an old A/C. The price on a new chiller for home brew is very expensive. I've also been floating the idea on using a zone off my heater to preheat my HLT since it is already hot. I will have to investigate further to see if this is...
