All Grain Brewing / Re: rice hull percentage
« on: August 31, 2010, 07:32:04 AM »
I just did an oatmeal stout this past weekend and use 1/2 lb of rice hulls.  The wort was pouring like oil and never stuck once.  Would it have stuck with the rice hulls?  I don't know but didn't want to take the chance with the flaked oats.

There's vanilla, chocolate or strawberry.  What's your favorite?

Make sure to throw out the old one if you get the bigger one. It turns out the smaller cane can still start the
siphon in the bigger one but if you are racking a beer it oxidizes the everliving crap out of it. Not speaking
from personal experience but from being the guy that got the call, "Hey tell me if this tastes funny."

Oh yeah...I broke the other one into a bunch of pieces out of frustration.  Nothing like realizing your autosiphon doesn't work when you're ready to transfer your beer.  Luckily I had some spare vinyl tubing around so I could siphon "old school".

You can get full sacks of grain from and they only charge the flat rate shipping of $6.99.  There are also discount codes for the Brewing Network and HBT for 10% off.

After all that, it's still more expensive than NCM.  Hopefully you can get some deals from your LHBS.

Second, as soon as they take thier eyes off of what gets posted we will be hip deep in ads for either porn, penis enlargement, get-rich-quick schemes or all of the above.

You say that like it's a bad thing  ;).

If by some miniscule chance something like that does get by the moderator, everyone on the forum can click the link to "Report to Moderator" so that it is flagged.  I've done it several times on other forums.

And finally, I just unsubscribed from Tech Talk...just haven't gotten much from it over the last few months and especially the past couple weeks with some of the insults and remarks.

Having the ability to make beer that isn't available to me and a lot of it.   And then while drinking it, be amazed that I didn't somehow make poison or blow myself up in the process.

I broke my autosiphon by putting it together dry.  After that, it wouldn't pull liquid up the tube to start the siphon.  It was the smaller one, 5/16" I believe.

I replaced it with the 1/2" Autosiphon and what a difference.  Man does it transfer fast!

Whoops.  I guess I'm on here too much.  I work for a school district so they have the tendancy to block stuff on the web pertaining to alcohol.  However, they have to be tipped off to a lot of things due to traffic.  Well, I guess I'm on here too much, because I just got back from a 2 week vacation in europe and came home and I can't get onto the site....    >:(  :(  :o

Boo-Hoo.  I'll miss you guys while I'm working!  :'(

Find the person in charge of the web filter and bring him/her a six pack of homebrew.  ;)
