    Crystal Malts Reduce Fermentability: Fact or Fiction?

    We all know those topics that pop up time and time again on any home brewing forum. One of those topics is under-attenuation. Why didn't my beer attenuate? someone asks, followed by a string of replies asking how much crystal malt was used, after which ensues the explanation that the addition of...

    Take the guessing out of efficiency Part 3

    As I explained in the first article, efficiency is defined as the amount of extract present in the wort divided by the total possible amount of extract. This can be divided into different kinds of efficiencies that can be calculated such as conversion, lautering and brewhouse efficiency. Here is...

    DIY Kegerator: Moving Beyond Functionality

    This post is addressed to us brewers who are looking to fully integrate kegerators into our homes and move past the beer fridge / keezer aesthetic. I set out to convert a piece of furniture (any piece that struck my fancy) into a kegerator. A good looking final product was key to my significant...

    Jack Keller Frozen Strawberry Wine w/White Grape Juice vs. Concentrate

    Greetings Experts! This post is borne out of the sad fact that maybe affecting many of us, that Welch's has discontinued their Frozen Concentrates. TLDR: Need help reformulating for juice. I am here asking for some help in a recipe conversion. One of my favorite recipes is Jack Keller's Frozen...

    Yet another question about SRM to Tristimulus values

    I'm trying to wrap my head around how to apply ASTM E-308 to SRM measurements for beer. The problem domain in which I am working requires that we have a decent conversion from SRM to RGB (or sRGB) via conversion to Lab* first. It seems that every site I use to create a beer recipe has their own...

    Sugars settling in hydrometer sample?

    Hey guys, I've got a few batches under my belt with an eBIAB setup I bought and I've been trying to take a lot more samples throughout the process to find out what my efficiency is. My last batch was a while ago so I don't quite remember exactly the numbers I was getting, but basically: I'm...

    Looking for quality ball lock - coupler adapters

    I tried these off amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L3SX4R1/ref=oh_aui_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Awful. Leaks, leaks, leaks, either on the beer side or on the gas side. But they're insidious because they're very slow and hard to detect until it's too late and you've got a mess...

    Question about Converting all Grain to Extract

    Hi Guys, Sorry, I'm brand new to brewing so this question is going to sound dumb. I've brewed 2 beers so far, both from kits. Both beers came out great, but I want to try something a bit more "craft". I've got a grain bill of: Pale Malt: 10lb Wheat Malt: 3lb 3oz The recipe that I am...

    Firestone Challenger

    This is an old freebee 2.5 gallon pin lock that needs some work + I would like to convert to ball lock. The problem: the gas post is 11/16" -18 and the liquid post is 3/4" - 18. Can't find any place that offers ball lock posts to do the job. Any ideas? Maybe I should just use it as a StarSan...

    Drill Hole Heights for Kettle Conversion

    Good afternoon, I have gotten my hands on some decommissioned 15.5gal kegs. My plan over the next 1.5years is to convert these into a fully electric HERMS system. However for the time being I am trying to slowly make this setup over time and want to start making the kettle as a part of my...

    Single Mash vs Step Mash

    So I'm finally jumping into all-grain. I have the enzymes and I know GFHB recommends a 2 step mash to achieve higher conversion. 90-120 minutes TWICE sounds like a long time. Has anyone tried both methods and have any conversion numbers? Which method do you use and why?

    Idylis 7.1-cu ft Chest Freezer conversion

    Idylis 7.1-cu ft chest freezer from Home Depot (limited selection of brands in Alaska). The most time-intensive part was conditioning the wood. Custom-cut 1/2" foam insulation to fit within the 2x8" pine frame. Foam insulation before holes/adhesive... These pieces wedged in there nicely...

    Has anyone converted a haier wine cooler to a kegerator?

    I found a really good price on craigslist for a 4.6 cubic foot haier wine cooler. I'm thinking it'll fit at least two corny's. Has anyone done this? Is haier a good brand? Craigslist post: http://columbiamo.craigslist.org/app/1635659251.html
