General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Hop Pellets

Wow those are some hop filled photos.  I have always used pellets and like everyone said they do settle out in primary.  25 ounces of hops?  What does that taste like?

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Brew ruined??? Vodka drip in wort....

I typically use a six gallon glass carboy for my primary and a blow off hose.  Don't put the airlock on for 5 days or in secondary.  I find boiled and cooled h2o is the safest way to go if your concerned about vodka contamination.

All Grain Brewing / Re: mash out
« on: January 29, 2013, 12:14:01 PM »
I always raise my mash to 168 degrees.  Let it sit for 10 minutes and sparge with 175 degree water.  This places my grain bed at 165 degrees.  My understanding is that 165 is optimum for a good sparge.
