    Boil kettle condenser - no overhead ventilation needed

    So given that the boil off rate will be lower, by say half, and you will have to reduce mash or sparge volumes to hit your targets, the efficiency of rinsing the sugars from the mash will be rather reduced and the concentration of wort will be reduced, what are people seeing for reduction in...

    Anvil Foundry Mash Eff

    This is interesting. I have done 2 brews on the foundry, 1st a no sparge, mill gap at .035 and ended with 58% efficiency. Second was a big beer and adjusted down to a 4gal to it'd fit, mill gap at .025, 1.5qt/lb, sparged with 1.5gal. Got 65%. It sounds like I'm recirculating too fast, I...

    Heirloom Corn

    That's probably because, aside from the popcorn, those are all the same exact corn.

    Heirloom Corn

    Read an article about some distillers using heirloom varieties of corn in their bourbon. Has anyone sourced any of this and made a cream ale or even an American lager with it to see if the flavor comes through like they say it does in the whiskey? I...

    Best Brewing Science Books

    I've been getting lots of PM's on the stuff I posted in the past. I no longer really visit this site, but I do still have everything. I zipped it up and It's hosted on some random file storage website, subject to go down again I'm sure, but for now here's everything I've got. If someone keeps...

    Additives, and Cancer.

    Curious as to why you centrifuge it out? It's been found to be entirely harmless, except for a few extremely rare allergies.... but this is the stuff that pill capsules are made of. A person would have to have never taken a pill before to not know. It's used in a lot of medical applications...

    Can Stout taps be used to server other beers

    Everywhere you said stout, replace the word stout with "serve on beer gas" and you would be correct. The faucet could care less the type of beer.

    Buying in bulk

    It's beyond unnecessary. Unless you plan on keeping that grain for over a century, it'll be fine if you just keep it dry. You think farmers are out there purging O2 out of the grain silos?

    Rain water will be more acidic than your tap or whatever other source of water you use. If you're making a dark beer, you'll probably want to buffer it with something.

    Extra Special Malt vs Special B

    I was told they are marketing it as a Special B replacement... but it doesn't matter because Briess is garbage anyways.

    how come selling/buying is not allowed?

    I think if you looked into the initial investment most of us have in our equipment... which never seems to stop being upgraded or we get new toys... you have to brew a crap ton of beer to break even.
