    How do you handle the vorlauf phase in a recipe while using the BIAB method?

  • Co Sour Method
    by invalid@example.com (Rob2010SS) on July 13, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    Brewing what was going to be a kettle sour this weekend. However, I’ve been reading about the co-sour method and wanted to talk to someone about that who has experience with it. I typically like kettle souring because I have control over the level of sourness. I usually like 3.1-3.2 pH in our kettle sours. There’s really no way to control the sourness in the co-pitch method, correct? What level of sourness do you guys usually achieve? To increase sourness, could you pitch the lacto…Co Sour Method

  • Electric Panel Design
    by invalid@example.com (tnordell) on July 13, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    Hello all, I am in the midst of attempting to figure out all of this swapping from propane to electric at my new house. I currently have the GFCI in place with a 60 amp GFCI in the spa panel all wired and ready for the brew panel feed, which is using 6-3 with ground. My plan is since I have a HERMS setup with the euro kegs which are about 1 gal shy of our US kegs i have been brewing on them for many years now and with the need to heat the mash water and dough in then reheat the water for the…Electric Panel Design

  • Dry Hop while carbing
    by invalid@example.com (Redhouse Brewing) on July 13, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    Anyone have any experience dry hopping in keg while carbonating? Any feedback? I read somewhere this guy was going to try it dry hopping at 60 degrees while carbonating. He said he thought (based on some research) that it would keep the hops brighter. I usually dry hop first layer when SG gets to around 1.020. After fermentation and few days rest I crash cool to 35 for 3 days and transfer to keg (closed transfer) with the 2nd layer of hops in the keg. Just wondering if it would work to…Dry Hop while carbing

  • Tilt Hydrometer – Any Thoughts?
    by /u/shocker2000 on July 13, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Wife recently wanted to redo our kitchen appliances… which means I just got me a “new” lagering fridge! I have not dabbled with lagering too much as from what I have seen you need to cool it at certain gravities, and for whatever reason I have always been paranoid about taking samples during fermentation and either pitching the sampling or putting it back in. ​ Now I was wondering what people thought about the tilt hydrometer. I kinda like the idea of just tossing it in my stainless fermentation bucket and then just checking on it once a day or so (I do that anyway… but more just looking lol). If it actually functions properly I am really tempted. submitted by /u/shocker2000 [link] [comments]

  • Danby 2 Tap Kegerator Help
    by /u/silky-johnson on July 13, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    Found a killer deal on a used prebuilt 2 Tap Danby Kegerator. Going to pick it up this evening. I’m assuming its either this model or the 5.2 cu ft version: https://www.danby.com/en-us/products/entertaining-en-us/dkc054a1bsl2db/ Anyways, I’ve got some beer fermenting right now and want to do my first keg! Would like help with what I need to buy to get this working with a corny keg. Obviously I will need a corny keg, any adaptors or stuff like that I will need as well? Thanks! submitted by /u/silky-johnson [link] [comments]

  • Kveik still going after 2 weeks?
    by /u/Neuro_Prime on July 13, 2020 at 3:15 pm

    Hi all, I hopped on the Kveik train since I don’t have the ability for good temperature control right now. After two weeks at 75F from an OG of 1.076, I still have airlock activity all day every day. There’s a layer of bubbles at the top, which suggests the beer is carbonating in the fermenter. John Palmer’s book says this could mean I have an infection; posts I’ve seen online say RDWHAHB. I feel like Kveik should be done in 1 week at room temp. Anyone else have an experience like this? submitted by /u/Neuro_Prime [link] [comments]

  • Kegging Advice
    by /u/ezraburke on July 13, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    TL;DR Beer is flat and only spitting foam from the tap – HELP! Full story: NE DIPA cooked on London Fog III. OG: 1.095, FG :1.028 (about 9%-ish) Final volume in my keg (because dry hopping just absolutely wasted this one 7oz of citra and 3.5oz of Galaxy) was maybe 10-12L. First attempt I tried force carbing at 50psi with beer at 2c (35.6F) by rocking for about 10mins. Let settle for a few hours. Beer was flat and spitting foam from tap. Next steps Flattened the beer by releasing the valve and letting it completely de-carb. Second steps Burst carbonation at 30psi left for 24hrs. Beer is still bloody flat and foam out the tap. submitted by /u/ezraburke [link] [comments]

  • New pH probe reading 7.03 no matter what I’m testing
    by /u/h22lude on July 13, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    My old probe for my MW-102 died. Bought a new SE220. Tried testing it out this morning but it reads nothing but 7.03 no matter what I test. If I put it in 4.01 solution, it reads Ec, telling me the solution is not correct. If I put it in my tap water, it reads 7.03 as well. Is there anything I can try to correct this or don’t bother and return it? submitted by /u/h22lude [link] [comments]
