    Major Ice Build Up In My Coffin Kegerator

    I built a coffin kegerator about six months ago. Made for four taps but just has one installed currently. Put my first beer in about four months ago and kicked it about a month ago. I’ve been sooo busy I have been unable to clean my lines out or brew another beer until now. Kept the kegerator...

    Adding Ice to Finished Beer

    I’m still messing around with my new-to-me all-grain setup/routine/recipe and sometimes overshoot my OG and don’t have extra room in the fermenter for more water to bring it down. Sometimes my FG is surprisingly lower than expected. Anyway, sometimes my ABV is 2+% higher than targeted. I thought...

    Ice Concentration, Separation, Refermentation, & Resurrection

    Over 2 years ago I brewed a beer that I intended to be fashioned after Dogfish Head's World Wide Stout. I brewed a big R.I.S. to around 1.100 and pitched it on top of an enormous yeast cake of 1056. I followed the standard yet advanced procedure of staggered sugar additions and pitching a second...

I had a similar build years ago and I recall the gallon jugs working ok for a while, but eventually splitting and...

    Johnson A421 Controller, Hisense Chest Freezer, Thermocouple, and Frozen Carboys

    Frozen by XPLSV posted May 12, 2018 at 4:20 PMHaven't had this happen before, but I have two batches of lager that I found frozen this morning. I was using a Johnson A421 controller in conjunction with a chest freezer. I have used both before for a half dozen batches or so, without problems. I...

    beersicle

    A couple weeks ago I brewed a big ~9 gallon batch of Gavin's Glorious Pilsner for a party coming up in June. Everything went way too well. Hit my numbers all the way through, fermented at 53F in the freezer plugged into Inkbird control, packaged into two 5 gallon cornys and dropped it to 33F at...

    Bottled vs. Tap Water

    I just put my 4th brew into primary (amped up Hoegaarden clone ~6%abv), when I realized that it might be time to reevaluate using bottled vs. tap water. I live in Berkeley CA where the water is, frankly, delicious. Beats the hell out of southern california water. I don't think it is hard...
