Equipment and Software / Hop spider
« on: December 23, 2016, 10:35:43 PM »
Has anyone at the end of the brew pumped all the hop residue into a hop spider? I am not liking using them during the boil because I feel I'm losing hops. Thoughts?

There is no need to do a starter for Brett in a secondary fermentation is there? Thanks!

Equipment and Software / Chest Freezer
« on: January 31, 2010, 09:35:36 PM »
So I came into a 7 cubic foot chest freezer today. I was looking for something to keep my fermentation temperatures consistent. I already have a thermostat to use with it, but need to figure out some configurations to get as many carboys in there as possible. Does anyone out there have this same size freezer and perhaps angle their carboys using some kind of brace to maximize the space? Pictures would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi folks....About to brew my first Belgian using Brett. Any suggestions/tips or things to watch out for. Not sure why, but I am a little nervous.

Yeast and Fermentation / Pacman Yeast

So I'm brewing with the Rogue Pacman yeast today. I have not heard a bad thing about it from anyone. Is it really all that?

All Grain Brewing / Original Gravity Problems
« on: January 18, 2010, 01:24:06 AM »
OK...So I can't figure out what's going wrong. I have about 70% efficiency into the boiler consistently. Really no problems there, but today got 56% efficiency after the boil. My efficiency is not always that bad, but never what I would expect. I have been using a straining bag for the hops lately that I am wondering about, but other then that I really can't figure out what the problem could be. Thoughts?

Equipment and Software / Refractometer for Christmas
« on: December 31, 2009, 01:54:33 AM »
HI folks....Got a refractometer with ATC for x-mas and was pretty excited to start using it. I have used it a couple times and the readings just don't seem right when compared to my hydrometer. I am converting the Brix back to OG using Beersmith software and it keeps coming out lower then my hydrometer readings. Both have been calibrated so I can't figure out where the gap is. Is the hydrometer more accurate or vice versa? Thoughts and thanks! :o

Hombrewer in Vernon, CT. Curious if there are any local homebrew clubs affiliated with the AHA.
