[quote]So what's on everyone's Christmas list?[/quote] Last year, I got Mark's Keg Washer and I love it. It makes cleaning kegs and carboys effortless. I put it in the bathtub, add some hot PBW, come back 20-30 minutes later and its done. I use it very often and highly recommend it. [img]https://b...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
To all in this thread, I'm going to be brewing this weekend, but have not yet decided what to brew. I am going to the LHBS later today to get ingredients. What should I brew? Give me one of your favorite recipes. The only two styles that I don't want to brew right now are porter and IPA, since I ...

I brewed an ESB a few weeks ago and it came out really well. It might be a minerally, but it does have some nice lacing. [img]https://i.imgur.com/DHlDJNT.jpg[/img]...

I'm very happy with how my NE IPA turned out. It has great color, great mouthfeel, and wonderful aroma. I hopped it with Galaxy, Amarillo, Columbus, and Cascade. Next time, I think I might switch the Galaxy for Citra. [img]http://i.imgur.com/QSCDkqG.jpg[/img]...

I have a few of questions for those of you that use tea balls for keg hopping IPAs. 1) How many ounces of keg hops do you add? 2) Do you add the keg hops as soon as you keg, or do you add them when you are about to start drinking the keg? To clarify, I typically keg 2 weeks after brewing and th...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
I have a couple of questions about using flaked oats. 1) Do you need to do anything special with them, or just throw them into the mash? 2) I am brewing a beer with 15% of the grain bill being flaked oats. At this percentage, do I need to perform a beta -glucan rest to avoid a stuck sparge?...

[quote]I thought it was pulling in CO2 from your breath?[/quote] It only does this as you blow to start the siphon. Once the siphon is going, it is then pulling in air. However, I would expect that there would be a layer of CO2 on top of the beer from fermenation that should blanket it from the air...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
If BR water is at 145 ppm of bicarbonate like LSUGrad00 says, then you should dilute at a 2:1 ratio of RO to tap water to get the bicarbonate levels to under 50 ppm. You would also divide the minerals and ions from your water report by 3. From there, just know that 1 gram of CaCl in 1 gallon of wate...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - Bleed P&G
You either need to know your local water profile or use 100% RO water and build up from there. Lets say that you are treating 10 gallons of RO water, adding 7 grams of gypsum and 8 grams of CaCl, will give you the 100:100 ratio. The only problem here is that the calcium would also be at 100 ppm, whi...
