All Grain Brewing / Using a hop bag.
« on: December 23, 2011, 10:49:23 PM »
New To all grain brewing, I recently picked up a keggle and I seen a DIY on a hop bag that’s hangs from the top. It works great. Problem is I don’t seem to be getting the hop flavor I was getting in extract. Is this from the bag?

Second, if you have a recipe that calls for flame out hopping, how long do you leave your hop bag in before chilling?

Looks like a lot of time invested, but will be time well spent. Enjoy.

Kegging and Bottling / Perlick creamer faucet
« on: May 12, 2011, 09:19:03 PM »
I can upgrade from a Perlick faucet to a Perlick Creamer faucet  for about $ 4.00 when I order my keg set up. Is it worth it? I'm going with a two faucet set up and thinking of going with both of them  as creamers or should one be regular? Thanks Ed

Nice job. Now lets make some beer. Don't forget to order Emma's Ale Extract Kit w/ Specialty Grains. 100% of the profits from sales of this kit will go to help fund pediatric cancer research and treatment at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. Lets do one for all the kids that are not as lucky as we have been. Fight on Emma.

A lot. Only being in my third month of brewing, and still getting a bottle collection built up. Thanks for all the great info on the forum.

Just finished up my home made stir plate and put the yeast on it and everything mixed up great and looks normal. Thanks for all the help.

Love the forum.

Yes did boil it first. After letting it settle this time it looks like a yeast cake at the bottom of a carboy.

Yeast and Fermentation / Floater in my yeast starter
« on: March 16, 2011, 05:31:59 PM »
This is my first yeast starter, and after two days I now have white clumps floating around in it. I used 2 liters water, 6 oz of DME and wyeast. Is this normal? Can I still use it?
