Too high evaporation- add back a gallon or so of water after 60-75 minutes+1. also could partially cover your kettle, and you could reduce the heat input, once you are at boiling, the higher the heat input the faster the boil off and vice versa. you should be able to control this with a gas burner.or electric with a pwm. i have a 1500watt element. slow boil off. if i put in a 2000w element, without a pwm it would just get boil faster and boil off more water.
Can't read volume- make a measuring rod/ stick , mash paddle
Won't sit flat - put the barb in only when you want to use it, or shorten it if that will work.
Just because they like it doesn't mean you should give it to them. I know for a fact that dogs like slug bait, too, but it kills them. Just like alcohol can. If you truly love your dog, don't give it alcohol.
I realize I'm shooting myself in the foot here, but am I really the only one who's never broken a hydrometer?No, I'm just afraid to say it out of fear that I will be struck down by the hydrometer gods.
I did not like the way that they screwed one of these into that poor innocent tree...
Aesthetically pleasing design. However, does it really matter if the cap is not bent? I've taken a few bottles off at the neck with mine but they would have broken anyway.
Mine cost less than $10 and will out last me...
yes it matters. it is easier to snap unbent caps across the room
the Argus Brewery in chicago is kind of cool also. It is from the old Schlitz building where they housed their horses. still has the functioning old elevator the sized of a wagon
The horse heads are a nice touch, too.
I go by there twice a day on the Metra. I love the old Schlitz tied house up the road that has the Schlitz logo in the stonework.
Pay attention to the task at hand - a brewery is a dangerous place. Follow checklists for tasks to make sure you don't miss anything. Learn what is top priority, and if you don't know ask. You're never done working, just done for the day. There will always be other stuff to do.
Also, pay attention to not just what the brewer says, but what he/she does. If the brewer skimps on important stuff, you might not want to remember too much of what you learn. I know of one local brewery who will not hire people who have ever worked at another local brewery . . . wrong mindset, bad habits, etc.
