I was hoping for a lot more.  Thought I would be able to access the recipe database and also the nhc seminars.  Am I doing it wrong?

All Grain Brewing / Re: Using a Keggle
« on: July 13, 2016, 04:37:56 AM »
One more thing I would add. The 2-3 gal left in the mash keggle includes some of the converted sugars.  You should compensate for that by bumping up your grain bill. Maybe by as much as 25% for a 5 gal batch

Looking back at his post a little more closely, it doesn't appear that he is unable to drain the last 2 or 3 gallons of fluid but rather that he needs to add 2 or 3 gallons before it gets above the false bottom.  So, assuming he adds the extra strike water, I'm not sure what effect it would have on his efficiency.

I use a domed false bottom from Morebeer which runs about $30 and then have a ss diptube that fits down through it.  However you will always have some dead space with a false bottom that you will need to adjust for.  Also, 2 or 3 gallons of strike water doesn't seem like nearly enough even setting aside the FB issue.  Seems like that would not account for grain absorption.

In Grand Rapids they were given out at the expo by one (or maybe 2) of the vendors.

Events / NHC 2016 and BNA11???
« on: April 22, 2016, 08:32:39 AM »
Hey.  I went to NHC 2014 in Grand Rapids and stumbled upon (and out of) The Brewing Network's 9th Anniversary Party (BNA9).  It was a real blast! 

I'm wondering if anyone knows if they will be doing a similar party this year in Baltimore.  I have not seen anything on the HomebrewCon website and have not had any luck with general web searches. 

I'd appreciate any info you might have.  Thanks.

Does anyone know when and how scores will be revealed?  My recollection is that they were actually posted on the competition site before we received the judging sheets but I can't really remember.   Thx

Off subject a little bit but I always thought a diacetyl rest was done at warmer temps like 65-68?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Minimizing Oxidation During Dry Hopping
« on: February 13, 2016, 08:47:17 AM »



My first question is relatively open-ended:  how, if at all, do people minimize oxidation when adding dry hops.  I had heard one method of boiling then cooling water (enough to cover the hops), then adding the hops to that water before adding to the beer.  Intuitively, this makes sense, as we would only be adding 5-6 oz of water, hopefully not enough to materially affect gravity in a 14 gallon batch. 


This is a fantastic thread.  I have learned a lot.  Thanks guys.

Has anyone actually used the method described above?  If so, how did it turn out?  I have never heard of this before.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Brown inside shank
« on: January 21, 2016, 04:25:24 PM »
I had the exact same issue recently and also concluded that the SS shanks I had purchased were actually chromed brass.  Same issue with the nipples that that connect to the shanks.  A couple of those I could actually see chrome flaking off.

Bought new shanks and nipples, which is NOT inexpensive when you are buying 4 of each..  I hope they are actually SS this time.  Does anyone know how to determine if these things are actually SS rather than chrome plated?

@2brew559 - what program did you use to produce the blue prints?  They look great.  Good luck with the build.
