re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
Sounds like a solid plan. I would take the faucets off and soak them in PBW/Oxy clean, then take them apart and rinse everything out. I should say though that I have moved to just using picnic taps rather than actual faucets. Partly bc I was tired of cleaning but also bc I changed chest freez...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
Well it looks like I will be mailing 4 beers to Austin for NHC. Now to decide which beers to send or if I have to brew some beer on Saturday. I am hoping that I have the small bottles and/or enough left in kegs of the beers that I want to send. Here is what I am thinking: 28A Brett Beer - Trip...

[quote]I want to get this beer super dry so I plan on doing a 90 minute mash and 90 minute boi[/quote] What is your philosophy behind lengthening both of these to 90?...

Do you have to pick your styles now? Or do you just ask for X number of beers?...

[quote]So just adjust my recipe in beersmith to 60 min boil and with my boil rate the volumes should adjust accordingly, right? I've also encountered some IPAs that called for 75 min boils - a few Bell's Two Hearted recipes come to mind. Do the same? [/quote] That should work for Beersmith. ...

I've had a request by a co-worker to brew an almond beer. That is all the direction that she has given me. I finally caved and told her that I would brew it for Zapp's. Now I have to determine what that exactly means. Ideas? ...

[quote]Our team brewed 20 gallons on Saturday. Came up short on our OG for some reason, but that's probably not a bad thing for this kind of setting. And that's what happens when I build a recipe based off my system, but it gets brewed on someone else's. [/quote] Apparently we had that same issue...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
Brewed 20 gallons of a rye ale of sorts today for Iron Brewer. Was hoping to get two batches to overlap some but was having serious issues pushing two burners with one propane tank. Tanks kept freezing up and I ran through propane entirely too quickly. Not sure what was going one. Crappy tanks maybe...

re: Homebrewing: In-Process Thread - Fratastic423
With dry yeast it is valuable to re-hydrate the yeast before pitching. that helps out a ton with how fast the beer takes off. Stirring certainly can add O2 however in order to make a big different you have to stir/shake for much longer than you would think. Adding O2 to wort aids in yeast propaga...

[quote]So this was my follow-up if you all had said racking was not necessary. So I would just toss the hops into the carboy, put my cap/airlock back on and just leave it? If that works I'll try it.[/quote] I think this is a big personal preference. I have heard that it is better to dry hop in p...

[quote]do most guys here rack their brew into a secondary fermenter? I did this on my first batch last weekend and it seems to have gone well. No evidence of infection and it looked like I got all of the beer off the yeast cake at the bottom. Beer appears to be gaining some clarity in the secondary ...
