If we could watch them all right now, what would we do all winter?

Good point!   ;D

Just saying that it will take a while before we get answers as the craziness of GABF is happening.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Kegged beer has sulphur odor
« on: September 21, 2018, 07:09:44 PM »
Don't let it set with the PRV open - it will oxidize the beer. I wioul vent it, apply more CO2, wait some time, vent again, repeat until the sulfur is gone.

You could also try it set for week, the sulfur could be gone.

There was the comment on Uraminum having a limit for drinking water. That is true. The Colorado River supplies water for much of the southwest. Much of it's watershed is where Uranium was mined in CO and UT. There is an ongoing cleanup of the Atlas Minerals' uranium tailing pile just north of Moab UT. The pile was right by the Colorado, and had leached uranium into the river for decades. So yes, it is a requirement for a reason.

Is it just me, or has Drew developed a voice fit for radio?

It is GABF week. That means all of the BA and AHA staff are on site in Denver. All hands on deck, or maybe battle stations. If I get a reply I will pass it on. Keep in mind that they may not be able to get it done. Be patient please.

Judging started today.

I don't have the energy for a build like that. Nice job.

Equipment and Software / Re: Ph reading confusion
« on: September 17, 2018, 12:29:41 AM »
I wait longer for the first pull, chill it down to 70+ish, then read it. The Mash will tend to go towards 5.4 usually. Don't worry about a 0.03 difference.

Do you do a 60 min mash typically? Is it that big of a deal that the ph is within target for only half of the total time? Thanks.
I mash for an hour for simple infusion mashes, mix and make sure the target temp is attained during the first 25 minutes, pull and chill pH sample. Measure pH. If  I'm only of  I let it ride. If I'm off a large value I adjust.

It is a good idea to do a mini-mash before had to see if you hit the target. Malt spec sheets should be checked first, which might save that step.

Ingredients / Re: Brewtan B and haze, redux
« on: September 16, 2018, 01:07:22 AM »
I discovered that some of the early shipped batches of Brewtan B were in fact Brewtan A.

This might explain something. Should I contact Brewcraft with the lot #.

Ingredients / Re: GREAT FERMENTATIONS GRAIN SALE

More Beer’s Fast Free shipping is, well, fast and free - 2 days to my location.

Off-topic, but do people typically get that kind of service from MoreBeer? It's 3-4 days for the actual shipping to me, which is understandable, but when I use their free shipping they also hold my order for 2-3 days before it ships. I kinda thought that was the tradeoff for the free shipping deal.

You live in the middle of nowhere, on top of a mountain. So yeah, I think you are on to something

All Grain Brewing / Re: Bo Pils Water Profile
« on: September 13, 2018, 04:24:16 AM »
Can you post the ion levels? My guess is too much SO4 for a BoPils. I would use Yellow Malty. Yellow dry would be more German Pils.

There should be plenty of online tutorials. If you have a LHBS ask them, many have well stocked wine sections.

I made some years back. It is a different process than beer. Much of the same equipment is used.
