Mike D what are your thoughts on these? Early birthday gift and the Belle Meade was suggested by a Bourbon Bar owner here in greater Cincinnati. Just wondering if you've tried either, or anyone else? I've seen the Russell's but never even heard of the Belle Meade

Have not tried either of mine on the kitchen sink. They do suggest the highest flow possible to get the times they quote though. But I would imagine that given the design, it will still do the job faster than anything else around given the same slow flow

See Denny's suggestion for cara/crystal level of 5-10%. The recipe you posted sits around 24% crystal, awfully high. You may have attenuation issues, too sweet, etc. I do not have a replacement recipe for you but that is a lot of crystal malt

No ads got me on pro thankfully. It was only a small one off charge.

Thanks, but for those of us who choose to not purchase pro, we are stuck with underwear ads? And jewelry ads? That's not a price I am willing to pay for mobile access. So I guess I migrate away from Tapatalk even though it functioned well for a couple years fairly ad free

I know I've been away for most of the last year, but... I thought we got Tapatalk to remove non-assiciated ads? I see in the first 15 unread topics: 3 underwear ads and 2 jewelry ads. I certainly did not come back to the AHA forum to find a good brand of underwear or a new mood ring. What gives? I ha e another forum I have been frequenting in the process of migrating to tapatalk and I have been singing its praises. May have to change my opinion if its riddled with ads like the AHA forum is now. Am I the only one that has not upgraded to tapatalk premium?

I broke and purchased 2 of these gizmos.  Watching a Helles drop slowly from 1.049 over the last week just sooths the inner nerd.  Next I need to graph it. 
JT, when are you spunding?

The Pub / Re: White Labs pitch lol
« on: July 04, 2018, 01:23:59 AM »
Was just at the White Labs Facility in ASheville, NC. All they are doing is commercial pitches there, no homebrew packaging on site. Saw all the machinery that the world told Chris White could never be made. They told him "You can't do what you are describing. Once something is wet, you cannot vacuum seal it." They are now doing it at White Labs and the packaging equipment looks like a giant Food saver vacuum sealer.

Plan for tomorrow is house IPA/freezer cleaner. First time changing up my hoo schedule to just a 60 minute plus huge whirlpool and big dry hop charge. Throwing in some different varieties to move some good out if the freezer. Hoping the day is smoother than last brew day at the beginning of the month, although that pilsner is tasting awesome, even while still lagering

That's potentially a strong contender. It is not the burner my Bayou classic came with though.

Thanx brewbama. I think for now, I am still looking at propane outdoors, but do see induction in the future. Likely buying the Hellfire locally with a club membership discount to save a couple bucks even over the 4-6 online sources I priced it out at. They are all tied into Blichmann's MAP so the local discount offsets local taxes essentially and I can support local

Going Pro / Re: Common(or Uncommon) mistakes that new breweries make
« on: June 27, 2018, 07:01:12 PM »
From a consumer standpoint I see several consistent issues at new breweries:
Poor quality
Poor consistency of product
Too varied of offerings
Too narrow of a scope for offerings(think 7 different pale ales or IPAs as the only choices
Getting too crazy and off the beaten path with recipes before showing proper brewing skills
Limited availability
Limited operating hours
As Keith mentioned though, these are not just brewery specific, you can see these same issues in rookie businesses the world over.
His plan seems to have worked well, he is not just the brewer, but he is the brewer and a partner. His partners run the business and he has the freedom to brew and manage brewhouse operations.
Even the local to me 10bbl taproom has a whole family working there: dad brews, son cooks, wife seems to run the business.
All in all, you need to know that operating a successful brewery takes a team of dedicated pieces.
Hoping any of that helps a bit, consumer viewpoint only
