All Grain Brewing / Help me make this Plate chiller work!
« on: June 02, 2010, 02:10:32 PM »
Ok so I found this chiller that is same as the Blichman 30plate one and is 1/3 of price.  Only issue is the threads are either 1/2" or 3/4" male or female depending on what you want.  The 1/2" would be easiest to use for me but, then I don't know how it would effect my flow of water going thru it?  I forget if 3/4" is garden hose size but, doubt it?  But, if I get 3/4" I have hard time finding the QD plugs to fit it?  Someone help me?  Here is link for chiller:

Beer Recipes / Apricot in an ale?
« on: April 12, 2010, 04:56:30 PM »
Ok I know this isn't for everyone but, I had a Dogfishhead Apri hop beer and I actually liked it.  Could I have a keg of it and not get sick of it?  WHo knows?  But, my wife loved it so at least if I get sick of it she won't.  I was thinking of what hops to use in it and figured I would go with citrusy hops like Amarillo and Cascade.  What do you guys think?

Beer Recipes / CAP Recipe ideas?
« on: April 06, 2010, 10:12:53 AM »
I want to start getting better at making my own lager recipes. I am doing a german pils then going to reuse slurry for a CAP.  Now I know the yeast doesn't justify it as a CAP but, I have a bunch of flaked maize I will most likely never use.  HEre is recipe and any guidance will help:

5gal batch
10lb Pils
2lbs Flaked Maize
.5lbs Carapils
1oz Cluster 60min
1oz Saaz FWH
1oz Saaz 5min

1.053
32ibus


Was going to ferment at 50 for 3 weeks then lager at 38 for another 1-2 months.
