Equipment and Software / Re: Igloo conversion question

In answer to the copper pipes question; I'm assuming you are talking about your manifold and there isn't any need to solder the connections.  When I used a copper manifold I never soldered it because it made cleaning easier if I could take it apart.  The seams will just act as more places the mash can filter through.

Many on here (including) me will suggest that you use a braid instead of a manifold if you are going to batch sparge.  If you're going to fly sparge then you are fine with a manifold.

+1 on the ways people have suggested to seal up the port.

Living on the Edge - Aerosmith

**** After looking to back to get caught up with everyone.  All can I say on the jump to "Flowers" is I have no idea.  Lack of coffee maybe.

Welcome back to the forum.  I'm glad to hear you are moving through the ugly parts.  It's gets better from here on out.

Time in a Bottle - Jim Croce

No brewing but this reminds me that I have an O-fest in the primary downstairs from last weekend.  I should probably check on that.   ???

Other than that I'll be trimming the trees.  Too many are hanging low or getting into the neighbors ornamentals.


Zymurgy / Re: Why should I renew my subscription?
« on: June 15, 2012, 02:19:19 PM »
I personally would be a bit embarrassed to frequently use this forum and not contribute something to it's maintenance. The collective wisdom of the longtime AHA members who contribute to and moderate this forum is more than worth the price of membership.  Also, I've lived in 2 states now where the active efforts of AHA and it's members have made it possible to pursue this hobby legally.

It's like all those people who listen to NPR and never contrib... never mind  :-\ (gotta get that membership up to date as well!)
i agree to this stuff. zymurgy is fun to have and i do think a good centerfold is in order.   fwiw i don't listen to npr though.

I subscribe for what the AHA does at the national level and the magazine doesn't hurt either. 

I am also a member of the 175MM people who listen to NPR each week and I do make a contribution for, basically, the same reasons.  The US "news" services (information entertainment?) suck big time and NPR at least seems to try to present the entire story, most of the time.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: WLP007

So, in case it sucks; how do you make malt vinegar?

It is about as easy as pouring some unpasturized vinegar from the store into the beer.  Seal it, set it someplace out of the sun and let it go.  Check it now and then.  When it get strong enough for you, it's done.


Yeast and Fermentation / Re: No fermentation temp control
« on: June 14, 2012, 08:59:50 AM »
I've brewed some high temp beers and most of them were great.  Once in a while, with the wrong yeast for the conditions, I would get one where the general comments were "that's interesting" or "it's got a flavor I wasn't expecting".  There is a lot of things you can get away with if use a forgiving yeast.  8^)


All Grain Brewing / Re: Second attempt at decoction...
« on: June 14, 2012, 08:51:19 AM »
I did a single decoction on the O-fest I made last weekend.  As usual I missed the next step temp by 5 or 6 degrees but 1.5 qt. of boiling water put me back on track.  I figure that if I know I'm going to need some boiling water I can be ready.
