Right in the kitchen where it belongs!  Same with the DBF and the chest freezer for fermentation.

Saw that on the NB forum.  Good to read he's doing well.  Keep it up, Jeff!

Wait, your name is Barry?

but there's no need to add magnesium beyond what's contributed by the malt. Unless you're brewing with a large proportion of adjuncts, the wort will already contain >100 ppm Mg.

so no need to add Epsom?  if so, good.



Right, I add epsom for a lot of my beers.

That would so cool on my mantle.
Aw, come on now, that's not cool!

Although I think he was joking.  But still!

Enough been, and most any chick'll look good.  ;D

You've apparently never played in a rock n roll band.  I've seen that theory disproven a number of times.
Man...we don't get chicks in metal bands...*sad face*

Right on, man.  I read that first post and wow, rough night by the sounds of it...

I can't stand the smell or taste of scotch, whiskey, bourbon, what have you.

welp, I may be brewing again this weekend since the amber ale I made last weekend may have something wrong with it and become lawn beer.

too bad - aside from the pH being low (5.0) initially for about 15min before I corrected it to 5.3, this was an otherwise perfect brew session. 

Gravity has fallen from 1.055 to 1.010 yesterday and its still going strong- if it gets to <1.007 its a dumper... but the bright side is I get to brew again!
What do you think happened to it?  Seems weird it'd ferment that low.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: bottling from a keg
« on: December 08, 2011, 09:26:21 AM »
Fine. You know what?  FINE!

I guess we're just 2 guys with full bottles of beer and an extra $100 in our pockets. :D

One could argue that a kegging set up is not required.  But they are nice, but not necessary (full disclaimer - I have 3 tanks and regualtors, and 23 kegs). 
Daaaaamn dude.  I have 3 kegs and space for 2 kegs in my keg fridge.  And one 20lb tank that I filled over a year and a half ago.  It's still showing just below the green area on the regulator.  Kinda wondering when it's gonna run out...
Anyway...yes kegging is an investment, for damn sure.

I see your point, Tom, I really do.  But I really don't think it'll be that much quicker with a beer gun.  You got two hands, use 'em.

This is exactly the point - yes, both get you to your destination, but I'll bet the Ferrari makes for a more pleasurable ride.

I suppose if bottling "pleasure" is what you desire, than the money spent on a beer gun is worth it to you.  :D
One handed bottle filling is worth it to me ;)  Beersk's method, while it may be effective, calls for two different wands and a keg of CO2 for flushing the bottles.  You can bottle a lot faster with a beergun, and my time is worth something.

That said, I keg exclusively and when I take beer places it is generally out of the tap and into a PET bottle with a carb cap.  I won my beergun and only use it to bottle for comps, and I haven't entered in a couple of years.  But as easy as it is to use and as well as it works, I would recommend it to anyone.  It's not required, but it's a great product.
Man, it ain't that big of a deal.  You have all those things laying around the house, most likely.  It's not worth a hundred.
