    Sam Adams Double Bock

    You missed the utilization rate in the calculation - I don't have access to my formulas right now, but the utilization rate maxes out around .33 when you are boiling for 45 minutes or so. At boil times less than that utilization will decrease.

    Sam Adams Double Bock

    I remember when that was a good beer. I'd pick up a case or two each year until it became meh. Fun fact - My college buddy tried to make my daughter's first word be Doublebock - but it was dog. Following to see if someone has a recipe.

    Drop in keg pressure during carbonation

    Sounds like you might have a leak somewhere (or your CO2 tank is almost empty- actually both is most likely). It should hold steady

    Drop in keg pressure during carbonation

    You need to keep the CO2 connected to the keg so it keeps the beer under 12 psi as it absorbs CO2.

    CO2 refill way overpriced?

    I have a place that will look the other way and fill outdated small tanks - last time I got fills was $4 for 2.5# $8 for 5#. My main place is $21 for 20# and $25 for hydro testing

    garage brew space

    Not a dedicated space. My stuff gets stored against the wall next to my car. When I'm going to brew (I'm a morning brewer) I put my car outside the night before and roll my structure over to the door. Milling is done while my mash water is heating. While mashing I heat my sparge water and...

    What the heck is this in my ball valve?

    Are you saying that you didn't take them apart and clean off the machining oil BEFORE using 5 - 10 times? That's the most important cleaning and inspection. To me, the rust on the threads and body look like steel (not stainless or even galvanized) material. The other part, maybe epoxy used to...

    Dry hopper

    I've only just started doing this, out of 4 hop dumps the first was stuck badly (not sure why I thought I could pack it as much as I did), second dumped fine, third had about a half ounce get hung up*, and the last one dumped fully. I now give my spool a few little whacks to help encourage the...

    Purging keg with ferm CO2 anvil bucket

    I purge my kegs from my anvil bucket fermenter all the time, but I just have a hose from the anvil going into the beer port of the sanitized but empty keg and have an air lock attached to the gas port. If I'm going to cold crash, I add a bag to the air lock after a day or two of vigorous...
