Ingredients / Cold drying hops
« on: August 05, 2011, 12:04:01 AM »
Over the years I've dried my hops with a fan and small heater under a screen with the hops on the screen . I was picking hops last night and was setting up my hop dryer when I saw my dehumidifier and got to thinking, has anybody used refridgeration as a way to dry your hops ie: dehumidifier or in a fridge with a fan . I mean it dries out my basement why not hops ? Wondering if there are any pro's and con's to doing it this way ? Maybe less oxidation . Any thoughts

All Grain Brewing / Mash Efficiency
« on: December 31, 2009, 05:30:38 PM »
When entering mash efficiency numbers on Pro Mash what number should be used the S.G. pre boil or post boil ? To me it should be pre boil because the boil can increase your gravity depending on boil time and evaporation % . Just wondering if I'm doing it right.

Equipment and Software / inductor tank fermentor smell
« on: December 29, 2009, 07:32:22 PM »
I just got a new plastic 60 gal. conical inductor tank to ferment 40gal. batches in, but I am concerned about a milky/plastic smell that is coming from the inside ( it has been cleaned with PBW ) . Should I worry that the smell will transfer to the fermenting beer or is there a way to get rid of this smell before I put my first batch in ? Thanks
