    What I did for beer today

    Came home from a family week on Cape Cod to a roasty house (really need to install wifi controls on the HVAC!) and needed to do a second cycle on a big 1318 starter. Fired up an idle fridge and stuck the stir plate inside. Whatever it takes! Cheers!

    American Lager, but not a light lager

    Might want to bump the Carafoam up a bit, Weyermann recommends it for 5 to 10% of the grain bill. As for the hops, it's amazing how close in character those six strains are considering so little gene sharing. If you're looking for herbal/spicey/floral you're definitely in the right place and you...

    USA or Imported tubing?

    Which one doesn't stink? I'll be ordering ~25 feet of 1/2" ID 1/8" wall tubing for my rig soon and figured to just reorder the same tubing I bought last time... Cheers!

    Trying BRU-1 and Strata for the first time, with Citra

    What changes made your beer better?

    It takes me less than 60 seconds to remove a head from my March 815pl pumps and another 30 seconds to expose the impeller. No big deal at all, and occasionally necessary to replace thrust washers... Cheers

    Fruit beer not clearing - what to do?

    I make a raspberry hibiscus wheat beer using a pound of raspberries per gallon and after pureeing the berries I include an hour stand at 140°F in a pot with pectinase added. It's amazing how effective that stuff in breaking down the berry husks and the pulp therein to increase yield and reduce...
