re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
I thought co2 was heavier than o2? Also if it gets oxidized when I open the lid it's surely going to get oxidized when I rack it to the bottling bucket. Also, it's not my equipment and not at my house. It being my first brew I don't feel like it's my place to tell the guy how to avoid oxidizing a be...

[img]https://i.imgur.com/wuwmBYK.jpg[/img] Brewed on Sunday so this is day three of fermentation of the juicy bits clone. Fermentation was starting to slow down a bit today (bubble every 17-20 seconds) so we added the biotransformation hops. Should I have waited another day? Can I expect a slight b...

[quote]I do. If i'm not mistaken, too low a temperature, and you won't extract as much of the hop oils. [/quote] Well another lesson learned. If we miss out on some it might tame a little of the calculated ibus. [quote]What was your grain bill again? [/quote] 10 of pale, 1 of flaked oats, 1 of...

[quote] A few things to consider when determining your mash water pitch temp, grain temperature and mash tun temperature. [/quote] I just didn't realize how much of an effect it would have on the temp. Will calculate better next time. [quote]Not sure what if any, brewing software you are usin...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
So if I mashed with 4 gal and sparged with 3.5-4 I would have 7.5-8gal pre boil. After an hour boil plus loss of .5 gal to proteins, hop, etc that would leave me with 5.5 to 6gal going into the carboy. Sounds reasonable? The water calculator you linked has several variables that I can't account for ...

re: Homebrewing Thread: Volume II - puffulufogous
I do appreciate that, however the advice I was given by local HB guys is that our water doesn't need a ton of adjustment. On top of that my local water reports that are available online are pretty rudimentary. No mention of ppm of minerals. Just pH and contaminents. Wouldn't you want to adjust wate...

The guy who wants to brew this weekend has only ever bottled so avoiding oxygen in the transfer will be tricky. Do you just fill until foam hits the top? The other guy who wants to brew regularly kegs only. Also, any reliable recipes to bottle carbonate? ...
